15 Celebs Who Prove Money Can't Buy Happiness

There has long been the understanding that money cannot buy happiness. People have backed up this statement with cliches like; money cannot keep you warm at night, money is not the equivalent of love, and money is the root of all evil. In this day and age, it looks like this cannot get any truer; we as a society are watching people with an abundance of money singlehandedly trying to force us into a change that is not necessarily good for us. However, before we get too political, we should also mention that celebrities do feel the effects of having money. We like to believe that having a lot of money is great; we can buy what we want and we can go anywhere in the world, and while that lifestyle sounds amazing, it can surely get old fast.

Many celebrities out there have had a rough time navigating the rich life. They live beyond their means or they realize that being so rich is actually the root of their problems. Prime examples of celebrities who prove that money simply does not buy happiness are Britney Spears, Beyonce, Faith Evans and even more, as this article will show.

He is somewhat of a recluse currently, but in his prime Keanu Reeves was in hit after hit, and had a bright shining star. He was a household name, but during his early days in Hollywood he realized that the partying, the fame and the fortune were nothing in the grand scheme of things. He was best friends with River Phoenix who famously overdosed in a very public way. And, Reeves' pregnant fiancé died in a car accident in the early 90s. Reeves knows heartbreak and has been very vocal about living a real life and not needing money to do so, because it really does not dictate your true happiness. It was even reported that he gave his entire Matrix salary away! He knows there is no emotional value in money.
