Christiane Amanpour grew up in Tehran, Iran, where she went to the elementary school before the family moved to England, and she went to the Holy Cross Convent in Chalfont St. Peters, Buckinghamshire. Christiane continued her education at the New Hall School, in Chelmsford, Essex, and then moved to the US where she studied journalism at the University of Rhode Island’s Harrington School of Communication and Media, graduating with a BA in Journalism in 1983.

Almost immediately after her graduation, Amanpour got a job in CNN’s foreign desk in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1986 she covered the Gulf War, after which she was sent to Eastern Europe to report on the fall of the communism. Christiane also covered the Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait in 1990, and her skills helped her to move up and become appointed as a correspondent for CNN’s New York bureau. Amanpour worked as a reported on the Bosnian War, but her delivery was questioned for professional objectivity and bias towards the Bosnian Muslims. Regardless, her net worth was rising steadily.

Christiane served as the CNN’s chief international correspondent from 1992 to 2010, and also worked as an anchor of “Amanpour.” from 2009 to 2015. During her time at CNN, Amanpour interviewed numerous important figures, such as the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, French President Jacques Chirac, and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. Other celebrities who she conducted interviews with were Hillary Clinton, Moammar Gadhafi, and Angelina Jolie.

Christiane reported from many more of the world’s hotspots too, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, and Rwanda. From 1999 to 2005, she served as a correspondent for CBS “60 Minutes”, which only increased her net worth, but in October 2010, Amanpour decided to leave CNN for ABC, where she anchored “This Week” for two years, before in 2012 returning to CNN, and she is still working there at the moment.

Amanpour has made several on-screen film appearances too, including in “The Pink Panther 2” (2009) with Steve Martin, Jean Reno, and Emily Mortimer, and Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man 2” (2010) starring Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, and Gwyneth Paltrow. She also appeared in Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” (2014), and most recently, in Ben Stiller’s “Zoolander 2” (2016), no doubt adding somewhat to her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Christiane Amanpour married James Rubin in 1998 and has a son named Darius John Rubin, born in 2000. Rubin is a former US Assistant Secretary of State, who currently works as an informal adviser to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President of the United States Barack Obama. After living in New York’s Manhattan Upper West Side, Amanpour and her family returned to London, where they are residing at the moment.

1[on being awarded the Order of the British Empire] I'll tell you something odd. I grew up a monarchist in Iran. It was all I knew. And I respected the British monarchy. But in the interim I've tried to put the spotlight on people who are struggling for their rights, or the right to stay alive, and that really affected me when it came to standing in from of the Queen to receive the honor. Because I couldn't curtsy - even though I grew up curtsying. I bowed instead.
2If I had been reporting in World War II, would I have had to say, in the name of objectivity, 'Poor Mr. Hitler, he has a point'? No, you don't play footsie with the most appalling crimes known to humanity. I realized in Bosnia that, even if it it means you're going to be accused of not being fair, you have to tell the truth.
3[on being a war correspondent] There's a certain kind of person who's attracted to being an astro-physicist or a soldier or taking risks at sports. We need the adrenaline to keep us safe. We're not heroin addicts. If you want us to be the eyes and ears in our field - not people spinning in the blogosphere or sitting in armchairs opining about what's going on in the rest of the world - you need people who are willing to go to the battlefield.
4U.S. soldiers, with whom I now have more than a passing acquaintance, joke that they track my movements in order to know where they will be deployed next.
5It occurred to me that I have spent almost every working day of the past ten years living in a state of repressed fear.
6But 17 years ago, I arrived at CNN with a suitcase, with my bicycle, and with about 100 dollars.
