More than being a phenomenal actor who is known for his role in “Roseanne” John Goodman is a doting father to his daughter who is a production assistant.

Most times, children tend to want to follow in their parents’ footsteps. However, for John Goodman's daughter, Molly Evangeline, that wasn’t the case.

The “Roseanne” star welcomed Molly in 1990, a year after he tied the knot with the love of his life Annabeth Hartzog.

Now, 29, Molly has grown into an extraordinary woman with remarkable beauty and piercing blue eyes. 

While she doesn’t live most of her life in the public eye, she accompanied her famous dad on the red carpet from time to time.  One can see the striking resemblance they share.

Unfortunately, the similarity they share stops in the looks department.

Unlike her father, Molly’s career choice keeps her behind the cameras. According to reports by IMDb, Molly is a production assistant, and some of her successful projects include the television series “New Girl.”

Her other miscellaneous art projects include “Aquarius,” “The Last Tycoon,” “Strange Angel” and many more. She even served as a producer and editor on her father’s movie, “A Love Saga with John Goodman.”

Although she didn’t follow her dad’s career choice, John remains very proud of his daughter’s accomplishments.


Molly’s mom, Annabeth, never fails to show her off on social media at every chance she gets.  Back in September, Annabeth shared a sweet selfie of her Molly on the plane. 

After suffering a major injury that killed his football dreams, Biography reports that Goodman changed his major in school to drama. 


His career, however, didn’t gain momentum until the early 1980s when he landed a role on “Run.” 

From then on, he began making appearances in other movies, but the career-defining role was as Dan Conner in “Roseanne.” His portrayal of Conner earned a Golden Globe award for Best Actor in 1993. 

Like most celebrities, Goodman had his battles with alcoholism as revealed by The Times. However, with the help of his family and loved ones, he was able to pull through and has been sober since 2007.
