Anderson Cooper Won’t Get Inheritance from Mom Gloria Vanderbilt
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has revealed that he won’t be getting an inheritance from his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, who inherited a fortune herself before making her own millions in the fashion world. Cooper told radio’s Howard Stern, “My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund. There’s none of that. [And] I don’t believe in inheriting money.” The 46-year-old Cooper said he’s grateful that his mother instilled a great work ethic in him, calling inherited money an “initiative sucker” and a “curse.” He said, “Who’s inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in their own life? From the time I was growing up, if I felt that there was some pot of gold waiting for me, I don’t know that I would have been so motivated.”
