A constant rock by his side:
Over the years, Louie has been a constant rock by Woody’s side. When his sex tape was exposed, Louie sympathized with her husband and while it took a good Texan Grovel for her to forgive him, things worked out for the pair in the end.
“Laura — this really gives you a sense of the depth of her compassion — what she said to me after finding out was, ‘That must be really hard for you, to have this shit exposed.’ She just said that. Now that doesn’t mean she wasn’t upset. How did I apologize? You know, just your standard Texan grovel. But she forgave me, and we’re still together.”
There is no official record of how much Louie made on her own through professional endeavors. As of now, her accumulated wealth is unavailable while her husband Woody Harrelson has a net worth of USD 72 Million.
