Are They Cheap or Frugal? These 10 Surprising Celebrities Are Weirdly Frugal

Some might say the constant feed of famous people invading our headspace is too much. For example, I am tired of listening to Gwyneth discussing her candles; I have also had it up to here with Harry Styles going on about his…style!

However, nothing beats seeing humble celebrities who maintain their connection to the real world. An online social media post celebrates those famous people who live frugally. Here they are.

1. Billie Eilish

Billy Eilish has amassed a vast fortune at only 22. Yet, the Highland Park-born musician favors a frugal lifestyle. The only evidence of Eilish’s spending is a sleek, black Dodge. Eilish once said she goes for the “Super-cheap meets fancy” approach for her lifestyle.

2. Keanu Reeves

Keanu says, “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.” Reeves is famous for giving away millions to his crew members in the Matrix sequels, and he often makes cameos on public transport, giving to the homeless, or just chilling on a park bench alone with a sandwich.

3. Jay Leno

The Los Angeles-based comedian has amassed enough wealth to live two lavish lifestyles, and curiously, he only spends the money he made from his standup work. Therefore, he must be seriously astute with his pennies — this is amazing, considering his car collection alone is worth an estimated $50-$100 million.

4. Warren Buffett

The man who made Berkshire Hathaway is renowned as a humble soul. He still lives in the same home he purchased 75 years ago — a modest detached house in Omaha, Nebraska. You will never see Buffett in a Bugatti, Ferrari, or a chauffeured limo; he even picks Bill Gates up from the airport when he visits.

5. Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell is the star of hits such as The Good Place, House of Lies, and Veronica Mars, so she must be worth a sum. However, Bell made headlines by wearing a cheap Target dress on the red carpet once. The likable actress lives frugally, donating much of her income and time to feeding the poor and advocating for animal rights charities.

6. Mark Zuckerberg

The Facebook monarch made a few bucks in his career. However, if you were unaware of who Zuckerberg was and saw him in public, you would see a modest tech bro wearing a faded teeshirt. His “minimalist lifestyle” also comes with the promise that he will one day donate 99% of his billions to charity.

7. Christian Bale

Rarely seen in public or making ostentatious fashion statements, the British A-lister lives a meager existence by Hollywood’s standards. Like Batman, he shuns the spotlight, and according to one fan, he lives away from the “expensive or trendy neighborhoods in L.A.” Moreover, Bale only makes appearances at glitzy events for film publicity — never by choice.

8. Jennifer Lawrence

The star is renowned for sticking to her roots — even using coupons and reportedly “hunting for bargains at the supermarket.” Lawrence grew up in a middle-class family and learned the value of stretching the dollar. “I was raised to have value for money; to have respect for money,” says the Hunger Games star.

9. Prince William and Kate Middleton

My future king and his wife are popular in the United Kingdom. Their humility is infectious, and the couple will enjoy a great reign one day. Of course, once he becomes the British Commonwealth’s monarch, his value will rise. However, like his grandmother and father, William understands nobody in Britain likes a royal diva.

10. Sir Paul McCartney

The richest Beatle of them all grew up in post-war Austerity Britain: he understands what it is to struggle financially. For a man worth almost $1 billion, he still flies economy, takes public transport, and sent most of his kids to a state school. Mccartney says he doesn’t care for money, explaining, “Money can’t buy me love.” I think he stole that from a song!

America is a vast country comprising 50 states. It is home to many natural wonders and influential talents in the world. Despite political and cultural controversies, many dream about one day visiting the country.

Because of TV and media representation, the dreams people who have never been to America have may be outrageous and far-fetched. For this reason, citizens laugh when they hear what non-citizens think about the country. Americans say these are the top misconceptions and things most folks don’t understand about the U.S.
