15 Rich Celebrities Who Live So Stinking Cheap

Celebrities can pretty much afford to buy whatever they want, travel wherever they want, and dine wherever they want. They wear some of the most expensive designer clothes. Some of them have enough to the point they could buy an island. This of course brings out the mentality in most people that if they can afford it, then buy a Rolls Royce, or buy a million-dollar mansion. Most people are envious of celebrities mainly because of their nearly unlimited access to large amounts of cash. However, believe it or not, there are celebrities who are cheap, frugal and live way below their means.

Some of the most frugal names may shock you and include the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tyra Banks. Your jaw will probably drop when you read about their money-saving habits. The Hunger Games star, JLaw, still lives in her L.A. apartment, and Leo still drives a Toyota. Tyra Banks uses her friend’s leftover meat to make omelettes the next morning, and makes sure she takes home the soaps and shampoos from every hotel she visits. This is insane, isn’t it? The list is longer and includes other big names, and more details, than you would have ever expected. Some cheap celebs! Check it out.

As one of the best guitar players in the world, Clapton is worth $250 million and was listed as number 53 on the Top 100 Artists of All-Time by Rolling Stone. While Clapton enjoys spending money on cars, art and other hobbies, he otherwise lives a very frugal lifestyle. In order to save money, he does his own laundry. He was spotted at a laundromat in Los Angeles loading his clothes into a washing machine. He also wasn’t dressed fancy as he was seen wearing regular clothes which included a brown jacket, tennis shoes, and even old jeans. Clapton started his music career in 1965 when he joined John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and followed up with the album The Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. Throughout his career, he won 18 Grammy Awards and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times.
