A lot of celebrities make big money on their fame through appearances, endorsements, and work. But that doesn’t mean they are living it up in a mansion with luxury cars. That type of life doesn’t actually work out a lot of the time. For example, there were five celebrities who went broke in 2016.
However, there are some stars who try to be smart about managing their money. This means not spending like crazy, or changing their lifestyle right when they start getting huge paychecks. So which famous people are truly more like us? Here are seven celebrities that live like normal, middle class people.
1. Kristen Bell
The actress has had a steady job on television for many years, and has done voice-over work for box office giants like Frozen. So she could definitely live the high life if she wanted to. She reportedly is worth $10.1 million, according to The Richest. But she still tries to be frugal by cutting coupons.
“I use a lot of coupons,” Bell told late-night host, Conan O’Brien. She claims to almost shop exclusively with them for a better price. “The best coupon you can get, possibly in the world, is the Bed Bath & Beyond coupon.” The actress got so excited talking about her Bed Bath & Beyond coupons that the host asked her if she was being paid, and turns out the answer is she just really loves coupons. She even hints that she may have taken her neighbors’ coupons when they weren’t looking.
