Goldblum’s decision isn’t uncommon among popular celebrities and businessmen.

Daniel Craig, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Gordon Ramsay are among those who choose not to pass on large inheritances to their children.

Goldblum wants his kids to learn important life lessons.

He thinks it’s essential for them to discover their passions and make a positive impact on the world.

And the best way to do that is by exploring life itself, instead of living a luxurious life on the vast inheritance he created.

After all, Jeff’s journey to Hollywood success wasn’t an easy one either.

In interviews, Goldblum has expressed contentment with his parenting choices.

He believes in leaving behind a legacy of values rather than just money, focusing on what truly matters in life.

Here are Jeff Goldblum’s exact words to be clear.

“It’s an important thing to teach kids. I’m not going to do it for you. And you’re not going to want me to do it for you. You’ve got to figure out how to find out what’s wanted and needed and where that intersects with your love and passion and what you can do. And even if it doesn’t, you might have to do that anyway.”

Goldblum became a father later in life, and he seems to pass his true wisdom on to his children.

What Jeff is doing might be questionable to many, but ultimately it all comes down to personal choice.

How one wants to raise their kids and what values they want to pass on is a choice every parent has the freedom to make.
