Caryn Elaine Johnson (real name of the actress) was born November 13, 1955 in New York, to a poor family. Karin has performed on stage with 8 years – a pilot Children’s Theatre Helen Rubenstein, where artists gathered praise. Nickname Whoopi (from «whoopee cushion» – «pillow-perdushka”) she received as a child. “If you puchit, you must release the gases. Because people have told me ‘you like a pillow-perdushka “. And there was my name, “- she laughs. Surname Goldberg came later, when Whoopi began to act in films. My mother advised her daughter to take an alias, “because not enough Jewish surname Johnson to make her a star.”
Youth girls came in 60-70, when the country flourished hippie movement. Karin left home, joined the “free people” in the commune where dabbled in drugs and was interrupted by unemployment insurance. In the late ’70s, trying to recover from addiction, Whoopi met Alvin Martin, a fighter against drugs. He became her first husband, and soon 18-year-old daughter gave birth to Alexander, Whoopi. A year after the birth Whoopi desperately look for work, I saw in the theater area of San Diego – and together with her daughter, but without a spouse, left New York. In San Diego, she worked in various theater troupes. Once, the actress had to not only play a role, but also to replace a sick colleague – so she had the idea to create the play, where she plays 6 roles at once (from a beggar to a millionaire). Whoopi embodied the idea in the show called “Show of ghosts,” which was a success. Talent glorified Whoopi even outside of America. She managed to get roles in Broadway productions, and from the image of a former drug addict and the single mother was gone – to 30 years Whoopi has already held an actress with a solid theatrical baggage.

Hearing on preparations adaptation of Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple”, she sent a letter asking the writer to invite her to appear. And Alice, familiar with theatrical works Whoopi, I appealed to Spielberg. So Whoopi took the lead role of Celia, a black American, has evolved from a downtrodden housewife into an independent strong woman. Whoopi debut in the movie turned out to be a triumph – the actress was nominated for “Oscar” and received the “Golden Globe”. It was a deserved ticket to the world of Hollywood. Invitations poured in one after the other, and Whoopi did not disappoint. Each film with her participation falls in love with a charming actress in the audience more. In 1990, 35-year-old actress played one of the most famous roles – in the movie “Ghost” with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. For the role of women, the medium in which infuses dead stranger and trying to establish contact with his wife, Whoopi won the “Oscar”.
