Anderson Cooper Says He Won’t Inherit Mother’s $200 Million Fortune!

24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Presented by Ketel One and Wells Fargo - ArrivalsANDERSON Cooper won’t inherit any of his family’s fortune.

The CNN hunk — who is the great-great-great-grandson of shipping and railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt — says he doesn’t have a trust fund.

Cooper’s mom is railroad heiress-turned-successful jeans designer Gloria Vanderbilt, who, at 90 years old, is worth a reported $200 million.

“My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund. There’s none of that,” Cooper told Howard Stern Monday on his radio show.

“I don’t believe in inheriting money. I think it’s an initiative sucker. I think it’s a curse.

“Who has 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’ve been so motivated.

“I’m doing fine on my own, I don’t need any.”

Cooper makes a reported $11 million per year with his CNN contract, lives in a multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartment, and also has two Hamptons homes.

Cooper says growing up he always had a job and was oblivious to his family’s wealth — perhaps because only his mother came from money, but his father, Wyatt Emory Cooper, did not.

“I’ve never paid attention to it, honestly,” explains Cooper.

“My dad grew up really poor in Mississippi — I paid attention to that because I thought that’s a healthier thing to pay attention to than like some statue of a great great great grandfather who has no connection to my life.”
