This British actor used to break hearts when he was younger, most notably starring as the romantic lead in films like "Notting Hill" and "Bridget Jones's Diary." You may have forgotten about him, but he sure made enough money for an entire lifetime during the late 90s and early 00s.
He found a creative way to save money — he spent a few years pretending to be his own agent. Agents cost a lot of money, so not having one for four years can be very economical. The only reason he stopped is that he ended up getting caught.
Can you recognize Tiffani-Amber Thiessen? She was big in the 80s and 90s, playing both Kelly Kapowski and Valerie Malone on "Saved by the Bell" and "Beverly Hills" respectively. She also portrayed Lori on the 2018-2020 Netflix show, "Alexa & Katie."
When she's not acting she likes to keep to herself and live just like the rest of us. She likes to go to discount shops and buy clothes at Old Navy. We get it, who doesn't love a good sale?
Peter Dinklage is an actor who rose to fame portraying Tyrion Lannister in HBO's “Game of Thrones.” He spent almost a decade with this character, working for the show from 2011 to 2019 and making $25 million in the process.
He even won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Today he lives in New York, and his life is simple. He can still be seen driving a Volvo and doing his own gardening.
Conan Christopher O'Brien earns a salary of $12 million for his show, and his total wealth measures at about $150 million. If you feel like this guy has been there ever since you remember yourself, that is because he has over 25 years of talk-show hosting experience. He can afford to buy a garage full of luxury cars, yet this funny man doesn't really care about that.
He still drives the same car, a 1992 Ford Taurus, and he loves it so much that he even featured it on his show.
There's no need to introduce politician Willard Mitt Romney. He was the governor of Massachusetts and even ran for president, competing against Obama in 2012. Unlike many on this list, Romney did not grow up with a struggling family.
Quite the opposite, his family is actually incredibly wealthy. That doesn't mean he's oblivious about where and how to spend his dollars. He gets his golf clubs from Kmart and tends to renovate his home by himself despite him having more than enough money to pay professionals.
Teri Hatcher competed with many other actresses in order to score the lead role in 2004's "Desperate Housewives." It ended up becoming one of her most iconic roles. The actress found abundance as well as professional fulfillment, and it is believed she has about $50 million in her bank account.
Still, she likes to save her money and she won't buy a new car until the old one is completely done with. She also enjoys baking for her daughter’s school, even though she could probably afford the priciest of pastries.
Boon sadly passed away in 2019, after living a full fulfilling life of 91 years. He was the chair of the hedge fund BP Capital Management. In 2o16, his net worth was estimated at around $500 million. During his lifetime, he was a big advocate for Renewable energy.

You might recognize Anthony Anderson from the sitcom "Black-ish" that airs on ABC. His character likes shopping for shoes, but he himself likes to be moderate with his money spending habits. He grew up with middle-class parents, which taught him a lot about the value of money.
He doesn't care about buying the latest car or the biggest house, even though he can definitely afford them. Saving for his future is his top priority, as he wants his money to last him his entire lifetime.
"The Real Housewives of New York City" reality star Bethenny Frankel made her fortune selling cocktails. In 2011 she created her own brand of alcoholic drinks that help with weight loss. She has about 80$ million but still makes sure to never pay the full price for a fashion item.
This is because, like many of us, clothes are her soft spot, and she needs to monitor how much she spends on them. She likes looking for rare pieces on eBay.com.
Michelle Obama first came into our lives in 2008, when her husband Barack Obama became the president of the United States. Since then, the former first lady became an icon in and of herself. Despite being worth over 40$ million, she likes shopping at Target just like the rest of us.
Even though she has her own fashion designer available at any given time, she likes to sport outfits from affordable brands like H&M. She has admitted that finding a great item at a large discount still excites her.
Queen Elizabeth II
The late queen was worth over 530$ million and lived in a palace with over 700 rooms. Yes, you read right, over 700. Still, the queen wasn't as detached as you would expect from someone who was born into royalty. She only uses six rooms, in order to save money and resources and even insisted on turning off the lights every time she left a space.
The Queen was also an avid supporter of recycling, and she led by example, reusing old bedsheets as cushion covers.
Most professionals who accumulate wealth like flaunting it in any way possible and we can't really blame them for that. But, not everybody fits that stereotype.

If you follow Major League Baseball teams, you have probably heard of Daniel Norris. It is estimated that the Detriot Tigers pitcher makes over 1$ million per year, but it turns out he only spends about 500$ each month. When he's not pitching, he lives in a 1978 Volkswagen Camper.
If that's not an example of a modest lifestyle, we don't know what is. He refers to his beloved van as "Shaggy" as a tribute to the beloved Scooby-Doo character.
If there's one person in this world who does not need to worry about money or be frugal, it's the famous entrepreneur Elon Musk. With a net worth of over $22o billion, Musk could literally buy almost anything in the world without having to even think about how it will influence his finance.
But, in 2020 he announced that he plans on selling almost everything he owns in order to live a simpler life. He claims that possessions only weigh people down.
Talented actress Keira Knightley has admitted that despite the fact she's worth over 80$ million, she gives herself an allowance. She vowed to never spend more than $50,000 a year. Allowances are usually something parents put in place in order to teach their children the value of money.
Some people also like to plan budgets in order to make sure they don't overspend and can put aside a sum of money each month. But, a star that has all the means in the world? It takes a lot of self-discipline to not spend all of that money in one place.
Billie released her debut album "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" in 2019, and received great reviews from both critics and audiences. This, combined with the revenue from tours and from her second album, has put about 50$ million in her bank account.
Eilish could basically rent or buy any place she wants just for herself. But, the star actually decided to stay and live in her two-bedroom childhood home with her parents, as they help to keep her grounded. It's also a great way to save money.

If that wasn't enough to prove how humble this guy is, rumor has it that instead of buying the most expensive watches out there, he likes his 10$ watch just fine.
"Just a regular girl from Texas" is how this child actress, now a superstar, describes herself. Selena Gomez started her career on the Disney channel, but she doesn't at all fit the stereotypical child star mold. Her parents have done a great job in keeping her grounded.

Sandra Bullock is a philanthropist who donates millions of dollars a year to charity. She adopted two children, and if that wasn't enough, she also has a great sense of humor. She actually showed up to claim her two Razzie Awards, an award for worst films and actors, and gave the audience one hell of an acceptance speech!
She also tries her best to raise her children to be humble and not expect things because they have money. We're sure that they'll grow up to be as cool and humble as she is.

The name Ingvar Kamprad may not ring a bell to most people, but he's one of the richest men in the world. He got his fortune by founding the world-famous furniture franchise, IKEA.

Despite being able to afford an airline of his own, he still buys secondhand clothes, drives a 1993 Volvo, and flies economy class flights.
Being the southern belle that she is, Reese Witherspoon geeks out every time she sees her idol, Dolly Parton. Some find it hard to believe that an A-list actor like herself still gets excited to meet other celebrities.
When she's not on a movie set or on the red carpet, Witherspoon likes to snuggle up and read a good book, play with her French Bulldog who she adores, and spend time with her family.
One Redditor testified that he met Chris Pratt on a red-eye flight from LAX to Orlando. He said the actor took pictures with everyone.

This modern-day renaissance woman started her career as a YouTuber and became a Hollywood star. She was one of the first black women to create and star in her own TV series, Insecure, which is based on her YouTube series Awkward Black Girl.
People who have been following her for years still can't believe their eyes when they see her on the red carpet. But despite all of the success she's been experiencing you still see her with the same old friends, but also with a few new and very famous ones as well.
You probably wouldn't expect the highest-paid actress in the world in 2010 and 2012 to be spotted waiting in the line to see a movie, just like us "normal" folks do, would you? Well, that is just how Stewart rolls. She likes to dress up sometimes, but other times she just wants to feel comfortable, and she has shown up to several red carpet events wearing Vans, and Chuck Tailors.
Kristen is famous for being quite shy and uncomfortable in interviews and telling the paparazzi exactly how she feels about them (nothing nice so I'll just stop there).
With over a dozen Grammy nominations and four wins under his belt, he's not jaded by the spotlight. Ed Sheeran remains one of the most "normal" celebs out there.
He is never seen in extravagant clothes, or anything else flashy for that matter. Sheeran still hangs out with the same mates he grew up with, and he had no desire to move to Hollywood, as he purchased and renovated a farm near Framlingham, in England, his hometown. He has stated that he hopes to raise a family of his own there.
You may have heard the circulating rumor that Jennifer Lopez is a diva a. She blames her reputation on sexism in the entertainment industry. Stating that when a woman is adamant about certain things, she's labeled a 'diva', but when a man behaves in the same manner, then he's a 'boss'.
She insists that though she's now rich and famous, she's still "Jenny from the block". Lopez also took pride in a $26 pink lacy dress she wore on an episode of American Idol. Just like us, she loves finding cute pieces in the sales aisle.
Chrissy Teigen is definitely one of the most beloved personalities on Instagram, and she always "keeps it real" when it comes to everyday things. She was really candid about what it's really like after giving birth and being a new mom. She exposed her stretch marks, baby weight, and other relatable things nearly every mother experiences.

Charlamagne Tha God
This radio personality is most famously known as the co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show 'The Breakfast Club.' While he is more than able to afford the best things money can buy, the radio guy loves shopping at Target, and wearing statement hoodies and T-shirts sent to him by fans.
He admits to buying high-end pieces he'd never normally purchase, and keeping their price tags on so that he can return them the next day.
The songstress constantly shows the public that she is just a normal New York gal. She has been seen ordering takeaway at local fast-food chains, and she unapologetically posts no-makeup and unflattering selfies on her social media accounts.
She finds it strange that people are still shocked when they see her taking advantage of a good sale- ”Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I use coupons at grocery or try bargaining at retail?"
The "pretty woman" and one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood once said in an interview, "I never had enough dresses to be a lady," quite shocking for someone who always looks super glamorous on the red carpet. You'd think she practically sleeps in an Oscar de la Renta gown.
Despite her busy schedule and being able to afford all the help she needs, Roberts actually makes an effort to do most of the "normal" activities we do, like tending to her garden, where she grows organic vegetables, knitting, and grocery shopping for her home.
Tiffany Haddish grew up in foster care and got her big break only at 37. Because fame is relatively new to her, she often forgets that she's expected to behave a certain way. She's such a lover of Groupons, that she caught the attention of the company and they offered her to be their sponsor.
She has also made headlines for wearing a white Alexander McQueen gown on several occasions. In an interview, she explained "When I saw the receipt, I cried. The dress was $4,122! So I’m wearing it multiple f****** times."
While most celebs dread being caught wearing the same outfit twice, the Princess of Wales has no problem whatsoever rocking the same look more than once, no matter how many times she's been photographed in it.
For example, she's been seen in this elegant champagne-colored ensemble at 3 different events (2010, 2011, and 2012), only changing her shoes and accessories. How relatable! It's safe to say that she really likes that outfit, and rightfully so.
Personal finance expert and best-selling author, Suze Orman, has accumulated enough wealth to not ever have to work another day in her life. Nonetheless, she still appreciates even the smallest of savings and enjoys using coupons at the grocery store.
According to the financial adviser, as most Americans have $0 in their savings account, Orman advocates that no matter how much money you earn, everyone should think about their retirement and start saving money.
Colin Farrell didn’t know how to handle his stardom when he finally made it big. He began partying, like so many do, and ended up in rehab. Now he lives a little more under the radar, driving around in a Ford Bronco from the 90s, instead of a fancy convertible.
Of course, the car is old and might break down at any moment, but Farrell doesn’t care. In his life, it has been one of the most reliable things, so he plans to stand by it as it stands by him.
Dakota Fanning has been a star since she was ten years old. She really left an impression with her role in the Twilight movies. As famous as she is, she won’t stop going to Walmart and doesn’t care if you see her there. During the filming of Breaking Dawn in Baton Rouge, for example, she didn’t try to hide at all while shopping at the megastore.
When she was spotted by fans and asked to take pictures, she happily said yes. As it turns out, Fanning is both down to earth and kind-hearted.
Ever wonder where Martha Stewart, the home living guru, will get her next big find? She has been an icon for years, and little do most people know, she loves going to big box stores like Costco.
It is a well-known fact that she has a line of foods with Kirkland--Costco’s name brand-- and she has been seen standing in the checkout line at the bulk store just like Kimmel and the rest of us do!
Jimmy Kimmel might be more in love with Costco than his wife. He confessed that he wishes he could have been married there instead of whatever beautiful location he ended up at. He has also admitted that he lost his wedding ring and went to Costco to have it replaced.
This might be a one-way, dependent relationship, but it is nice to know that even the stars roam the aisles of Costco for the next great free sample and get froyo in the food court.
People might identify Steve Carrell as a talented comedian, but his lust for Target is dang serious. In fact, it is a borderline obsession. He says he can’t go inside the store without buying something. Leave some for us, Steve!
And what does he love to buy in his favorite store? Cargo pants, of course. He calls the pants “comfy but uncool.” During his time as a star, we believe he has done enough cool things to be able to be comfortable every now and then.
Eva Longoria made nearly $400,000 per episode on "Desperate Housewives" and has made over $35 million in her career. But still, she’d rather stay in most weekends and just relax, rather than fly to France or Spain and traipse the beaches while eating pricey food. It helps that she has invested some money in a restaurant.
Who needs Dominos’ delivery when you can get your own restaurant to make you something? She is also a devoted mother and won’t break away from her kids to attend any of the big parties. Instead, she throws her own backyard BBQs.
Darius Rucker came from humble beginnings and still lives that way. He may have been a part of Hootie and the Blowfish, but the former rock star is happy living the settled-down life with his wife and kids now. Perhaps that’s what inspired him to go solo and reconnect with his country roots.
Rucker still records albums and tours but makes sure there is always time for his family. Whatever his next big project will be, it is good to know he will always be the same person. And that person is not Hootie, right?
This is one that actually kind of makes sense. Eric Clapton used to be caught up in the rock and roll lifestyle. But after the death of his son, Clapton slowed things down and cleaned himself up. Nowadays, even though he is worth a whopping $250 million, he lives as if he only has a couple thousand.
He likes wearing comfortable clothes that will be durable and long-lasting. He stays away from big drunken parties, but he does have one vice involving his large art collection.
Renee Zellweger’s parents were immigrants who came to the U.S. with absolutely nothing. She knows you have to earn everything you are given. Since becoming a superstar actress, she hasn’t had to pinch pennies like she used to. But that doesn’t mean she has stopped.
Zellweger is so frugal, that she shops for groceries using coupons, despite being worth upwards of $45 million. Of course, she can afford to splurge, but she would much rather spend on what she needs instead of what makes her happy. She seems to have a great head on her shoulders.
In her intrepid journalism career, Katie Couric earned $55 million. She became famous on The Today Show and the CBS Evening News but refrains from flaunting her wealth. She doesn’t shop at high-end stores or eat at the most expensive restaurants. Give her a hunk of beef and a trip to Target and she is content.
For all of the time she spent in the spotlight, how amazing is it that she has never got swept up in an extravagant lifestyle? Whoever said that there wasn’t much money in journalism has definitely never met Katie Couric.
Warren Buffett knows he is worth $70 billion. Despite being the second richest American, Buffett lives in the $31,000 home he purchased in 1950.

From his movies, including Dirty Harry and Gran Torino, you could swear that Clint Eastwood would have a couple of garages worth of some great cars, but this is not the case. Although he has made hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of his career, he prefers to drive around in his ancient GMC Typhoon.
This limited edition SUV was made for one year in the early 90s and looks similar to a GMC Jimmy SUV. The little car has some giddy-up and Eastwood does have other faster cars. The Typhoon only costs $20,000, though.
McConaughey is known for his laid-back, Texas accent, and is one of the biggest stars on the screen. His down-to-earth ethos is clear when he was living in an Airstream trailer near the beach so he could catch the best waves whenever they presented themselves.
He spoke of the Airstream, “ It’s two seconds from making your bed to putting your coffee on the stove.” Of course, once he got married--shattering the hearts of adoring fans everywhere--and had kids, he moved from his trailer to his real house to raise his family.
Although Britney is one of the most famous divas of her generation when not on stage, she attempts to live a low-key life. She shops at normal, everyday stores like Target and Walmart. She is known for buying everything from cosmetics to toys to everyday items.
The surprising part is that she does this all on her own, even though she could certainly afford to have someone do it for her. She would rather brave the throngs of adoring fans and shop like an everyday person. And of course, she usually grabs a Starbucks coffee on her way out.
The famous Mad Men actor had a one-bedroom apartment while he was working on the hugely popular show. After he became incredibly successful, he stayed in the same apartment but made a few renovations.

The scribe who brought us the Harry Potter series, J.K., Rowling is worth over $1 billion. It wasn’t so long until she realized that she had no need for all that money, and started donating to charitable organizations and causes.

In case you were living under a rock for the last decade, Elliot Page is kind of a big deal. The star made it big by portraying the titular character in Juno and has been a big hit ever since. Page's illustrious career notwithstanding, he keeps a low-key profile, especially in terms of his home. In fact, until 2014, the actor was living in a small Hollywood Hills house with two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.
He purchased the small cottage for less than a million bucks and sunk some dough into fixing it up, including renovating the bathroom.
Jose Mujica is Uruguay’s former president and was known as the “poorest president.” During his presidency, he refused to live in the official presidential residence and opted to move to a farm where he grows flowers for sale. He donated 90 percent of his $12,000 salary in order to support charities in the area so they can help those in need.
He comments “ I’m called ‘The poorest president,’but I don’t feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle and always want.”.
Keanu Reeves has made it pretty clear that he is not one for the luxuries of the elite. But he certainly could be after making The Matrix films. Instead, he chose to give over 80 percent of his earnings to the special effects and costume design team.
He is often caught on public transportation, eating at common restaurants, and hanging out at the park. Being so laid back made him into a global meme. Whoa, just whoa.`
When you imagine the life of a rock star, what comes to mind? Mansions and trashed hotel rooms? Not for Incubus lead singer Brandon Boyd. He prefers a simplistic way of life. He could have bought a huge mansion but instead lives in a cabin in Santa Monica, California.
The home cost $3.5 million, which is kind of a lot of money considering its small size and was built in 1923. The historic house has a huge backyard and a swimming pool, so it’s not like Brandon is hurting, but he could certainly be a lot more ostentatious.
Ashley Greene’s performance in the Twilight franchise made her a bonafide star in Hollywood. With all the dough she made over the years, no one would blame her if she shopped, traveled, and flaunted just a little. But she manages to stay modest despite all of the hype.
Her father told her she needs to be frugal with her money and save, that way she could support herself if a dry spell came up or if she was waiting for a role of a lifetime to come up. She keeps track of all of her spending and apparently won’t pop for a first-class ticket on an airplane.
As the leader of the iconic Rolling Stones, you might think that Mick Jagger loves the finest things in life. But while he does like to party, he is more frugal than he appears. He is aware of how much he spends and has been described by his ex-wives as “pretty tight” compared to how others might think of him.
He says he was always taught to fix things when they break instead of throwing them away, and not to take his entire entourage on vacations to the French Riviera like some stars do today.
Sarah Jessica Parker
While the character she portrayed in "Sex in the City", Carrie Bradshaw, wasn’t one for modesty or subtlety with money, the same cannot be stated for Sarah Jessica Parker. In 2008, during an interview, Parker spoke out about the importance of being responsible with money.
As a kid, she wore hand-me-downs, and to this day loves going to thrift stores and finding bargains. She grew up on welfare and had humble beginnings, which also helped shape her view toward money.
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the best-paid female stars in Hollywood. She made a ton of cash starring in the Hunger Games franchise and proved her acting skills in movies like Silver Linings Playbook. While she should live like a queen with the money she’s made, she chooses not to.
She lives in the very same apartment she did before she got her fame. In a Fabulous magazine interview, she stated “I was raised to have value for money."
Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl, has amassed some serious bank throughout his three-decade-long career. He has made an estimated $225 million, all thanks to his music. But the rock star gets worried about spending too much money too fast.
He has a hard time spending the money and is still afraid of going broke because he never finished high school. He has his family to take care of, which makes him more frugal than one might think.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Perhaps she needs no introduction, but Sarah Michelle Geller starred as the hugely popular Buffy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She had a wildly successful career after the show until she decided to settle down and enjoy a quiet life.
While the start has some serious money, she has revealed that she lives a fairly normal life with her two sons, shopping at Whole Foods, just like an average Jane. Geller learned not to take money for granted from her single mother after her dad left the family.

She has said in interviews that she’s not the type to need fancy cars or jewelry. Instead, she continually saves because of the tumultuous nature of Hollywood.
For someone channeling their inner hobo with their look, you can call Transformers star Shia LaBeouf is anything but extravagant. The star has been acting since the age of 10 but he stayed grounded. He gives all of the credit for not being into material interests to his parents.
LaBeouf grew up in a family of artists, which made him appreciative of his success, and there’s no reason to flaunt that to the world, according to the star. He said in interviews, “If I have enough money to eat I’m good.”
Kristen Bell started out in small roles until she became popular in big ones. She's married to Dax Shepard and together they have amassed a wealth of $25 million.

Shailene Woodley is the star of the Divergent series, one of the best young adult sci-fi franchises ever. So it is safe to say that Woodley is well-off. Being as famous and successful as she is, she is still found purchasing used clothes and is an avid advocate of the environment.
In a THR profile, most people who know her best call her “grounded” and “authentic.” She confessed that she has yet to splurge on anything, which for someone at her level is quite impressive. She makes her own beauty products and lives off the land whenever she can.
Leonardo DiCaprio could possibly be the most recognized actor in the world. All of his success and work have amassed him a great big pile of cash. With his standing as one of the most respected actors in showbiz, Leo has decided not to spend too much on himself but on projects that are important to him. He owns three Teslas, which are better for the environment, as he is a serious conservationist.
His foundation, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, has raised up to $3 million for the World Wildlife Fund’s tiger habitat. Additionally, he has donated $15 million in grants to environmental organizations throughout the world.
While the Spider-Man star has been the tail-end of plenty of jokes throughout the years, people may forget that he made a boatload of money for the role. When the third movie of the franchise was made, Toby had made over $36 million.
The fact that he has kept his wealth under wraps is a testament to just how cautious he is with his cash. Tobey had a tough upbringing and learned how to be frugal early on. According to the Spiderman actor, material possessions are meaningless to him, and he'd rather have nothing than live extravagantly.
Mariska Hargitay is best known for playing a starring role as Lieutenant Olivia Benson on the NBC police procedural show, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. It was once leaked that the star made a whopping $400,000 per episode, and Forbes Magazine ranked her the second-highest-paid actress in the world in 2014.
While she has a lot of zeros attached to her salary, that does not mean she is constantly on spending sprees. She always plans for the future, because she knows that Hollywood is very fickle.
Although Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook, making him one of the richest and most influential people in the world, he lives very modestly when you factor in how stinking wealthy he is. He wears typical street clothes and does not show up to Facebook Headquarters in a limo.
He got married in his backyard and has stated many times that he is more concerned with his work than his wealth. According to one source, he is so unimpressed with wealth that he plans to donate 99 percent of his Facebook stocks over the course of his life.
