When we think of the word “celebrity”, we think of people with ginormous piles of money, massive houses with swimming pools, and the latest luxury cars. However, that’s not the life that every celebrity out there prefers, and you’ll be pleased to know that some of them like to live just as the common person does. They don’t let money get to them and keep the elegance of the common touch with them, which makes them far more relatable than their counterparts who love enjoying their riches. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying one’s money, these celebrities, who live like the rest of us, are completely different and far more wholesome. Some of them prefer to walk around in regular clothes instead of items that cost thousands of dollars. Other still swear by coupons to save money at the grocery store on a regular basis.
Here are some of Hollywood’s A-listers that prefer simplicity over luxury:
Lady Gaga has a gripe with people who start eyeballing her oddly when they see her using coupons at department stores. She also doesn’t like it when people stop and stare while she tries to bargain at retail stores just like anymore else would. We forget that while she’s a terrific artist and spends a lot of money on stage for our entertainment, she’s still a simple human being when she’s not performing and is eligible to live the simple life that she chooses. What’s more, she even loves cooking her own meals!
Tori believes in the work that she puts into raising her children in a healthy environment. It’s abundantly clear that she puts more emphasis on them than anything else as she was prepared to sell her massive, luxurious house so that she could take her family of 5 children to live in a bungalow where she grows organic fruits and vegetables for them. She truly believes that this is the best way to raise her children, and we’ll have to agree with that! Apart from the farming, she’s made sure that her kids are close to animals and has a chicken and mini-pig at the bungalow as well.
A lot of celebrities might actually be shocked when they hear what Julia Roberts’ preferred mode of hair treatment is. According to her, she doesn’t care much for all the fancy products out there and just works with any simple shampoo that she can get her hand on. She’s got more than enough money to live the life of a queen, but she’s a down-to-earth lady and knows how to spend her years in a fulfilling manner. She’s often seeing getting groceries in everyday clothing and even grows her own vegetables. If that wasn’t enough, she loves spending time knitting clothes for her children which is extremely adorable and commendable.
Keanu Reeves has been in some of the most remarkable movies in all of history and had he kept all the money that he made, he’d be rich enough to purchase just about anything that he could have wanted. However, the actor truly couldn’t care less about money and has given 85% of what he earned for his famous The Matrix performance to other people who worked on making the movie possible. Even recently, his plane (a commercial plane on which he had a regular seat) had to land due to an emergency, and instead of calling his own personal driver or even booking another flight, he just bonded with some other people and took a road trip home with them. It’s clear that he prefers a simple lifestyle as he often eats out in parks and is seen purchasing items that are on sale. He’s said that he’s already got enough money to last him a few centuries and that he doesn’t think much about money at all. Such traits are what make Keanu one of the most revered actors of all time.
Each and every one of those people, including a lot of other celebrities who prefer simple lifestyles that haven’t been mentioned on this list, are remarkable people. They’ve proven to themselves and the entire world that the allure of wealth and luxury don’t affect them whatsoever, and that’s very admirable.
