15 Huge Stars Who Have a Fortune but Remain Grounded, According to Netizens

Some people believe that all wealthy people spend their money on whatever they want. But these actresses proved them wrong; despite earning millions of dollars per month, they remain grounded and humble. And this should be the case for us as well, since being humble costs nothing, but shows that our humility is our most valuable asset.

At Bright Side, we compiled a list of celebrities who make millions but demonstrate how to be better and live like a normal person. Please keep in mind that this list is ranked by net worth.

15. Ashley Greene ($8 million)

Ashley Greene is known for her portrayal of Alice Cullen. She has appeared in every one of the 5 Twilight films. Despite the fact that she has been successful in her role, she said, “I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for 2 or 3 years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”

14. Shailene Woodley ($12 million)

Shailene Woodley has appeared in a number of notable films, despite earning millions of dollars for each role she plays. She drinks water from Mason jars because she does not want to harm the environment by using estrogen-like chemicals found in plastic.

13. Zendaya ($20 million)

Zendaya earns millions on fashion brands and in movies. She mentioned, “I’m always like, I will always need to work. Because if I don’t work, then everything can be gone tomorrow.” She also admits that she is having difficulty spending money on herself because she wants to save as much as possible. She also has become the youngest actress to receive 2 Emmy Awards.

12. Zooey Deschanel ($25 million)

Zooey Deschanel was said to have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars per episode of her show, but when the financial report came out, it only showed that her expenses were around $22,500, which is about 25% of her monthly income. She even donates a portion of her earnings to charity. She also has 3 credit cards with no outstanding balances.

11. Sarah Michelle Gellar ($30 million)

Though Sarah Michelle Gellar is earning millions, she once mentioned, “I go to the supermarket probably every day because we like to eat fresh, organic, and local. We shop at Whole Foods, but we ask which fish is on sale. And I clip coupons all the time. Why should you pay more for something that someone else is paying less for?” This proves that she does not waste money and uses every available resource.

10. Kristen Bell ($40 million)

According to reports, Kristen Bell spent $142 on her wedding, including gas. Despite the fact that she and her partner have a very comfortable monthly salary, she said, “We got married in a tiny room in the Beverly Hills courthouse, and it was still one of the best days of my life.”

9. Halle Berry ($90 million)

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry once explained, “I am very thankful for my good fortune, but one of my biggest fears is that I could lose it all. I am not someone who has to have 10 cars and lots of diamonds. I am pretty frugal. I save a lot because I’m always worried about when this trip is going to end.” Despite the fact that she has unlimited resources, she chooses to be humble.

8. Angelina Jolie ($120 million)

Angelina Jolie’s salary is more than enough, and she can live without working for years. But even though she’s earning that much, it was reported that Jolie is the Special Envoy for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. That is the title she earned while giving her time and effort to different parts of the world.

7. Carrie Underwood ($140 million)

People would assume that Carrie Underwood’s dates with her partner would take place in expensive restaurants filled with elegant dishes that would cost a fortune in one sitting, but she revealed that this is not the case. Their special date location is Subway.

6. Meryl Streep ($160 million)

Meryl Streep is one of the most well-known actresses of our time. However, despite her wealth, it has been reported that she prefers to save money by purchasing secondhand items, repairing her own appliances, and even using coupons for discounts.

In a report back in 2013, Jennifer Lawrence mentioned, “I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it. That’s why mini-bars are difficult because it’s like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there’s just something wrong with that. I still drive the same car I’ve been driving for a long time, and I haven’t bought a house yet.”

4. Sarah Jessica Parker ($200 million)

Sarah Jessica Parker was not born rich, and her childhood was rough, but she once said, “The thing I want most for my children, I would like for them to not be aware of money, which means I have been very aware of my financial situation.”

3. Julia Roberts ($250 million)

Julia Roberts explained, “I think some people confuse unconditional love with spoiling. None of my kids would think I have a problem with that distinction.” This demonstrated that using money to express your love is not always the solution to every problem.

2. Reese Witherspoon ($300 million)

Reese Witherspoon revealed that she once fired her financial adviser because she said, “You need to start saving. You need to start saving right now because you’re going to be making drastically less money in your forties. Basically, you’re not going to have much of a career.”

After that, she made her own company, and she didn’t wait for it. She said, “I believe in abundance.”

1. Lady Gaga ($320 million)

Even though Lady Gaga is a millionaire and a famous songwriter, in a tweet from back in 2012, she said, “Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I use coupons at the grocery or try bargaining at retail?” She added, “I didn’t get into this business for the money, so I don’t spend a thing, but I am so happy.”
