18. Dave Grohl
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl told The Red Bulletin magazine in 2014 exactly where all his money went. And it was certainly surprising. “It goes straight into my bank account, where it turns all moldy and smelly,” he said. “I don’t waste my time thinking about how I could make more when I already got enough… My only status symbol would be 606, my studio in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles.”
17. Lady Gaga
On stage, Lady Gaga wears the most amazing, intricate, expensive-looking outfits. In real life, however, not so much. In fact, she prefers regular old clothes like t-shirts and jeans – she’s not going out in public in that meat dress! And the singer also uses coupons, which surprises some people. “Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I use coupons at grocery or try bargaining at retail?” she posted on her Twitter account in 2012.
16. Sarah Jessica Parker
Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker is determined never to spoil her son James, as she herself had a fairly humble upbringing. “He only wears hand-me-downs because I’ve got all these older nephews. Plus, my mother saved all my brothers’ clothes,” she told Parade magazine in 2008. “I am not kidding. I don’t think I’ve ever bought him any clothes. Maybe a new winter coat.” She, too, wears unremarkable outfits when going about her daily routine.
