15 Of The Biggest Cheapskates In Hollywood

When we think of celebrities, the first things that usually come to mind are glamour, status, parties, and a lifestyle most of us could only dream about. There was the report in 2012 of Scott Disick blowing $15k in a nightclub to impress Kayne West. Rapper, Drake was rumored to have spent $50k in 2013 at a strip club. How about the time David Beckham gave his wife Victoria (Posh Spice) a multi-million dollar vineyard in Napa Valley for her birthday?

On the flip side, certain celebrities have developed a reputation for being frugal, cheap, or downright insulting! Some of them just enjoy the thrill of saving on groceries by clipping coupons, while others are notoriously bad tippers. Being thrifty isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We should all be financially savvy. But certain Hollywood celebrities’ frugality comes across as rude, condescending, and just plain obnoxious. Read the list below to see which stars are simply “living on less” and which ones are seriously offending wait staff, entourages, sales clerks, and even friends.

15 Lady Gaga

14 Tobey Maguire

13 Madonna

12 Sarah Jessica Parker

11 Kristin Bell

10 Rachael Ray

9 Jeremy Piven

8 Paul McCartney

7 Teri Hatcher

6 Sean Penn

Sean Penn is arguably one of the best actors of our time. He first won our hearts as the spaced out, but loveable surfer dude, Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but went on to become an award-winning actor and political activist. No stranger to controversy, Penn has had altercations with paparazzi, feuds with other actors and television personalities, and many public break-ups. It seems Penn has developed another reputation throughout the years: Bad Tipper. There are numerous reports of Penn stiffing wait staff at various restaurants throughout the country. He typically dines with a table-full of friends, runs up a large tab, and then leaves nothing for the people who generously catered to his every need.

5 Jada Pinkett Smith

4 Jaclyn Smith

3 Beyonce

2 Hilary Swank

1 Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan has been called the greatest basketball player of all time. The athlete scored over 32,000 points in his career, has a wildly successful line of shoes (Air Jordan), and boasts famous friends like Spike Lee and Oprah, this is a man to be envied. However, Jordan has been called out publicly by friend (or is it former friend?) Charles Barkley for being cheap. It is well-known that Jordan refuses to tip, even on bills in excess of $1,000. No one knows for sure where the no-tip policy comes from, since the former star athlete came from very humble beginnings himself.
