Anderson Cooper may come from a family with money, but he won’t be seeing a dime of it. Though his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, inherited a fortune before making her own millions, Cooper will not receive an inheritance. “My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund. There’s none of that,” he told Howard Stern. “[And] I don’t believe in inheriting money.”
Cooper, 46, said that inherited money is an “initiative sucker” and a “curse.” Because of that, he’s grateful that his mother always gave him an incentive to work. “Who’s inherited a lot of money that has gone on to do things in their own life?” he asked.
