12 Celebs Who Act Broke But Are Really Rich

It’s no secret that celebrities are significantly richer than the average person. After all, that’s part of the reason people idolize stars so much. The idea of having millions of dollars is fascinating to most people, and it’s obvious that there are many ways that having lots of cash can make life easier. However, celebrities also have the pressure of keeping their fortunes intact. If a celeb loses money due to a business deal gone wrong or a creative project that flopped, they are sure to be in the news quickly. Of course, there are also hundreds of celebrities who blow their fortunes on extravagant items and go from riches to rags in a short amount of time.

Then, there are the “smart” celebs who don’t discuss money openly. They actually pretend to be poor. These famous people are always talking about how much it costs to send their kids to college or pay a mortgage. These famous people almost have you believing that they experience financial hardships that are similar to yours, which makes it easier to relate to them. Some celebrities have also made wise investments that haven’t made the news, so the public really has no idea how rich these famous people actually are. Here are 12 celebs who act broke, but are really rich.

She’s also known for giving to those in need, and encourages her fans to “be kind to one another” at the end of all of her talk show episodes. DeGeneres also has a line of home goods and clothing, and will be starring in the Pixar film Finding Dory, which is set to be released in the summer of 2016.
