Anderson Cooper is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt of the shipping and railroad family.
Cooper's older brother, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper, committed suicide on July 22, 1988, at age 23, by jumping from the 14th-floor terrace of Vanderbilt's New York City penthouse apartment.
From age 10 to 13, Cooper modeled with Ford Models for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Macy's.
In May 2007, Out magazine ranked Cooper second behind David Geffen in its list of the fifty "Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America."
Reportedly, Cooper saved a Haitian boy during a riot.
