There’s no doubt Whoopi Goldberg has a lot to be proud of. Besides being a beloved American comedian, talk show host, actress, author, singer-songwriter and political activist, she has collected a ton of accolades throughout her decades-long career.
The 63-year-old icon has been a living room staple for many years and has earned a pretty penny since her start in Hollywood in the ’70s. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she has accumulated a massive net worth of more than $45 million. Wow!
Although she has a lot to brag about now, the beginning of Whoopi’s career wasn’t as strong as you’d think. The beauty, who was born Caryn Elaine Johnson in New York City on November 13, 1955, first experienced dyslexia at a young age while enrolled at the Hudson Guild Children’s Theater in the Big Apple.
