Terlahir dengan nama lengkap Caryn Elaine Johnson pada tanggal 13 November 1955 di New York. Dia pernah menikah 3 kali, namun selalu gagal.

KARIR
Whoppi mengawali karir aktingnya dari pementasan drama di Broadway. Whoopi kemudian memutuskan untuk pindah ke California untuk lebih dapat menekuni karir ini. Di sinilah Whoopi kemudian akrab dengan dunia komedi.

Film drama THE COLOR PURPLE karya Steven Spielberg lah yang mengantar Whoopi menuju kesuksesan. Film yang banyak dipuji oleh para kritikus film ini juga memajang Oprah Winfrey dalam jajaran pemainnya.

Namun karir Whoopi baru benar-benar melonjak saat ia harus memerankan seorang penyanyi yang harus menyamar menjadi biarawati dalam film SISTER ACT yang disusul sekuelnya SISTER ACT 2: BACK IN THE HABIT.

Dari totalitasnya dalam berkarir, tak sedikit penghargaan elite yang diterimanya. Penghargaan-penghargaan tersebut termasuk Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, dan Tony Award.
