9 Rich Celebrities Who Live Like Poor People
Most of us dream of living the celebrity lifestyle — we picture ourselves in fast cars, expensive clothes, and beautiful houses, and there are certainly plenty of stars that live this dream lifestyle. Surprisingly, though, there are also numerous celebrities who shun the opportunity to flaunt their wealth. There are even a select few who choose to live very humbly. Here are 9 celebrities who live their lives like poor people:
Sarah Jessica Parker
While Sarah Jessica Parker may be most famous for playing a character on Sex and the City who loved beautiful clothes and an expensive lifestyle, in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. After growing up in a household that was dependent on welfare to survive, she hasn’t forgotten her roots and looks for every opportunity to save money when she can. Sarah even goes as far as to dress her children in hand-me-downs.
Warren Buffett is one of the richest men on the planet, and he made his money by making shrewd investments and timely business decisions. You might think he’d have every possible toy you can think of, but Buffett actually lives a very humble lifestyle. He likes to eat at McDonald’s and he still lives in the same house that he bought in 1958 for $31,500.
Leonardo DiCaprio is famous for his playing epic roles in films such as Titanic, Gangs of New York, and The Wolf of Wall Street, and you would think all of the money he’s made from such films would lead him to live a lavish lifestyle — but not this guy. DiCaprio doesn’t use private jets (he only flies on commercial flights), drives a hybrid car, and conserves energy through the solar panels on his roof.
