Shocking: 8 Insanely Rich Celebs Who Are Stingy

Mind-Bending Facts presents you: celebs who are stingy!

Oh, yes, it’s time to talk about Hollywood, one of my favorite subjects ever, the good and the bad, the pretty and the ugly! We know that Hollywood stars have flourishing careers, many fans call out their names every time they see them in real life, and they also have access to plenty of resources to make their lives easier, such as designers, stylists, makeup artists, chefs, personal trainers, and so many other things.

We tend to assume that they have a fortune in their bank accounts because they receive millions for their impressive shows and movie roles. We see them on TV or on social media looking top-notch, and we believe that they were blessed with lots of money to make their lives better.

But Hollywood is also a place where a lot of gossip is born, and there’s a rumor that there are some celebs who are stingy. What’s the reason that makes them frugal? Do they not find joy in material things? Or maybe they save for bigger things. Whatever the reason might be, we decided to find out, so here’s what we’re going to talk about today: 8 celebs who are stingy!

Frugality—is it the new trend in Hollywood? Let’s find out!

1. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is an extremely talented singer and actress, and although she became popular for her eccentric style, she’s part of the club of celebs who are stingy. That’s right, and regardless of the fact that her net worth is way over $300 million, whenever she goes to the supermarket to buy something for the house, the star makes sure that she uses coupons.

Lady Gaga is well-known for trying to impress the audience in each of her shows, but when it comes to her shopping habits, she doesn’t want to make people say wow! Have you ever imagined this outlandish star as one of the celebs who are stingy?

2. Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio might be one of the most popular stars in the world, being appreciated for his impressive roles in films such as “Titanic”, “The Great Gatsby”, and “Django Unchained”, but regardless of how much money he has in his bank account (more than $260 million), he’s also one of the celebs who are stingy.

Sources say that the famous actor doesn’t like to spend dollars if there’s no real reason to do so because he wants to save in order to have a flexible work schedule. If he has enough to support his lifestyle, it means that there’s no need to rush to get a new movie role and be desperate, right? Pretty smart, that’s financial independence.

3. Madonna

The list of celebs who are stingy continues, and this time we’ll talk about Madonna. She’s one of the most appreciated and talented stars in the world, but when it comes to money, she’s not as generous as some people might think.

Sources say that her net worth is around $850 million, making Madonna one of the wealthiest singers on the globe. But regardless of how much money she has—and to be honest, she could buy everything that she’s ever wanted—when it comes to actual shopping, she always asks for a discount. Did you know that Madonna’s one of the frugal stars in Hollywood?

4. Meryl Streep

Many people say that Meryl Streep is one of the best actresses that have ever existed, and we can’t deny that because she does her job wonderfully. She’s a fantastic actress who makes everything seem so effortlessly elegant and surreal, but when it comes to money, she’s really calculated and takes the necessary time to make a decision.

Even though Meryl Streep has a net worth of approximately $160 million, she’s still part of the club of celebs who are stingy. And that’s because when she wants something expensive, she thinks that it’s better to not buy it, regardless of how much she wants it.

She’s probably saving for something bigger and more meaningful, or maybe she thinks that expensive doesn’t necessarily mean high quality. Whatever her reason might be, we appreciate her being responsible when shopping.

5. Nicole Kidman

Do you like the actress Nicole Kidman? She’s very popular for her 1989 movie roles in the thriller “Dead Calm” and the miniseries “Bangkok Hilton”. She’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she’s also one of the celebs who are stingy.

Sources say that her net worth is no less than $120 million, and in 2008, 2018, and 2019, she was actually considered one of the highest-paid Hollywood actresses. But regardless of how wealthy she is, there’s gossip going around saying that she’s not a tipper. It seems like she’s one of those people who simply doesn’t give you a tip for any reason.

Is that a good or bad thing? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think! And if you want to have fun and watch a movie, I recommend “Dead Calm”. You can find it here, and it’s pretty good!

6. Sarah Jessica Parker

If you’ve watched the popular TV show “S*x and the City”, you already know that the character Carrie Bradshaw was a true fashionista. She loved designer clothes, but she loved even more designer shoes, especially those that were created by Manolo Blahnik.

You might think that Sarah Jessica Parker is a star who loves to spend money on fashion items, especially since her net worth is around $200 million. Even though she gave life to a character that became a fashion icon and also made herself a fashion icon, SJP sometimes buys her children second-hand clothes.

Is she one of the celebs who are stingy? Probably yes, but there are many clothes that are even better bought secondhand than brand new (aka designer stuff), which also gives her the chance to spend more money on her true love: shoes.

7.  Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the funniest and most talented actresses in Hollywood, but she’s also one of the celebs who are stingy. Media sources say that she has a decent net worth of $160 million, and although she was the world’s highest-paid actress for two years in a row, in 2015 and 2016, she doesn’t like to spend a lot of money on material things.

For instance, she’s known for living in the same apartment, and she also owns the same car that she owned at the beginning of her flourishing career when her name wasn’t very popular. She might be one of the celebs who are stingy, but that only makes her real, genuine, and responsible, isn’t that so?

8. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of the stars on this list who doesn’t have as much wealth as the others, but compared to regular people, like me, for instance, she’s rich.

She’s popular for starring in the TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, from 1997 to 2003, and she also had stunning appearances in “All My Children”, and “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.

Her net worth is around $30 million, but when it comes to shopping, she loves deals and coupons. Sources say that the actress only shops with coupons, and she’s a big fan of stores that have discounts and offers.

I guess we can say that being rich and famous doesn’t mean that you can’t still be frugal, right? What do you think about these celebs who are stingy? Would you be frugal if you were in their place? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
