Jennifer Lawrence


Even after starring in the hugely successful “Hunger Games” trilogy, Lawrence still lived in her parents’ condominium.
“I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself,” she told Elle.

Lawrence eventually moved into her own digs, however. Variety reports that she bought a loft-style condo in New York City
in early 2017 for a little more than $9 million.

Gay fruit? o_O

Tim Cook


As CEO of Apple, Tim Cook took home $145 million in 2016, most of it in vested stock.
But in Adam Lashinsky’s book, “Inside Apple,” Cook said he likes “to be reminded of where I came from,
and putting myself in modest surroundings helps me do that. Money is not a motivator for me.”

Another coupon shopper :cool:

Carrie Underwood

John Shearer—WireImage

One of the wealthiest country music stars, Carrie Underwood admits she clips coupons when she goes grocery shopping. Further illustrating that there’s not that much difference between some rich and poor people, she also said she often forgets to bring the coupons with her to the store. And if you’re wondering what rich people eat, Underwood buys stir-fry kits and meatless burgers.

Ashley Greene


“Twilight” star Ashley Greene credits her father with instilling frugal ways in her at a young age. She’s grateful because she knows her meteoric rise to fame could turn around just as quickly. She spends carefully in case the next big acting job doesn’t come along for awhile.
