Some celebrities just can’t resist showing off how rich they are. Indeed, they wear million-dollar shoes to the gym, or they fly private jets, or they throw ridiculously over-the-top parties for their friends. These 20 celebrities, however, are different. They know the value of money, and they would rather live like a normal person than flash their cash around.
20. Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran has no interest in living like a millionaire. When he achieved his first number one album in 2011, he didn’t party until dawn. Instead the singer retreated to a friend’s house and built some Lego Star Wars models. “You never want to be wasteful,” he told the Irish Examiner in 2014. “I really don’t spend much money. I spend most of it on taxis!” He also buys his D.V.D.s in Amazon sales and still uses his student bank account.
19. Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts starred in one of the most famous rags-to-riches stories in Hollywood history, 1990’s Pretty Woman. But although she’s certainly not poor, she doesn’t go all out with the riches either. When not working, the star wears inexpensive outfits. Moreover, she even hand-knits garments for her children. In 2012 Britain’s Daily Star newspaper reported a tidbit from an “L.A. mole” saying “Julia never splashes cash on designer gear. She goes to second-hand stores and loves vintage stuff.”
