For the most part, celebs live an extravagant life. They live in opulent homes, drive the fanciest cars, wear the latest designer clothes and never ever shop at Walmart or Target. But then there are a few down to earth celebs who value money, remember their past down to earth upbringing and lead a humble life. Here is a list of a few celebs that will make most mothers proud because of their humble lifestyle.
1. Halle Berry
Halle Berry is a multimillionaire and can afford anything she wants. But unlike many other female celebs, she is quite down to earth and always remembers how she grew up and the challenges she faced while growing up in Chicago.
On almost any day of the week, Halle can be seen on the streets with their kids in ordinary grocery stores. When asked about her lifestyle she stated, “I am very thankful for my good fortune, but one of my biggest fears is that I could lose it all.“
Matthew McConaughey has done well in the world of entertainment but he sure remembers where he comes from. The Oscar winner used to live in a tiny trailer even after he had made millions from his TV shows. He has repeatedly stated that he prefers a minimalist life with less stress; ‘having a bigger home and faster car only causes more stress and demands a lot of attention.’
Sarah Jessica Parker is one rich lady but you would never know it from her dressing. When not making movies, she prefers to frolic in simple comfortable garments. Her kids also get hand me downs and very rarely does she buy new clothes. But she does buy them new shoes because all the kids have different sized feet.
4. Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves has made millions from appearing in the Matrix. But this is one guy who does not care about money. He gave away nearly 85% of his earnings from the movie to the supporting team who helped make the movie great. He also buys clothes on sale and is known to use public transport. In a recent interview, he said, “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.’
5. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is a very rich musician and she may appear extravagant on the concert stage. But in real life, she is a simple girl who wears ordinary clothes and rarely puts on any makeup. She recently stated, ”Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I use coupons at a grocery or try bargaining at retail?” And when at home, she cooks her own food.
