Whoopi Goldberg's staggering net worth revealed: The complete breakdown here!  

Over 30 years ago, in 1990, Whoopi Goldberg became the first black woman to win an Oscar in nearly 50 years. A slew of women-centric roles and trailblazing acts preceded the actress's career before the historic night. "Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted this," said the then 35-year-old actress, who already had a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy in her host of accolades.  

Whoopi was born as Caryn Elaine Johnson on November 13, 1955, in New York City and was raised by a single mother, who she says was a strong and wise woman. Whoopi honed her acting skills under the guidance ship of German-American actress Uta Hagen and debuted onscreen in the 1982 film Citizen: I'm Not Losing My Mind, I'm Giving It Away. Goldberg has since evolved to become a comedian, author, and television personality.

Goldberg would later do Broadways and enchant Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg, who would offer Goldberg her breakthrough role in his film The Color Purple, which grossed $142 million against a budget of $15 million and earned Whoopi her first Oscar nomination. The Color Purple paved a steady road ahead for Whoopi.

The actress landed starring roles in some of the most memorable films, including The Long Walk Home, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Ghost, which earned Whoopi her Oscar, Clara's Heart, and The Telephone; though not all of the films were box office success, Whoopi's performance was received with rave reviews in the most of them. 1992 comedy film Sister Act was a career-defining project for Whoopi. It grossed over $200 million and made Goldberg one of the highest-earning actresses in showbiz.
