Twiggy Forrest To Donate Daughter's Inheritance
Mining magnate and billionaire Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest’s middle child has admitted it is a “relief” her dad has given away most of her inheritance – and will keep giving it away until it’s gone.
In an in-depth interview for Sunday Life, Sophia Forrest, 22, said the concept of inheritance never really made sense to her.
"You watch it tear families apart and it baffles me,” she said.
“You're not entitled to that money, you haven't earned it, you haven't worked for it – I don't see why you think it should be yours.
“So, we all agreed to give it all away.”
According to Forbes, Twiggy is currently worth more than $5.2 billion.
"It's a relief to know it's not my problem,” she continued.
“It's going to better things. I don't need it. I'm going to work and make it on my own."
And her attitude is paying off.
Despite being rejected by the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA), Sophia is tipped to be the next big thing in Australian TV. Just two weeks after graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) last year, she scored a role on Love Child, playing pregnant schoolgirl Debbie Hampshire.
Since filming wrapped, she has auditioned for a pilot in the US and filmed a local indie feature film.
Sophia will also play a vampire when she returns to Perth for the Black Swan State Theatre Company's production of the Swedish horror-romance, Let the Right One In.
