Which Slytherin are you?

 

 

Once you become a huge star and start making serious money, it’s generally assumed that your life changes completely. Certain people covet a fancier lifestyle, though others may shy away from it. But what if megastar celebrities’ fame and fortune, while welcome, didn’t alter their lives in any considerable way? What about the super-famous guys and gals who still shop at Whole Foods, don’t bother with personal assistants, and happily clip coupons in order to ensure they always get the best deals?

 

Here are some of the biggest and most well-known names in the business who, in spite of their massive Hollywood careers and considerable wealth, have managed to stay down to earth and live like normal people.

 

Jay Leno

 

Easily one of — if not the — most famous late-night talk show hosts of all time, with a chin that won’t quit, the incomparable Jay Leno has built up a considerable following over his 30-year career, along with some major bank. His estimated net worth, at the time of writing, is around $350 million. However, much like several other entrants on this list, Leno learned how to save in his formative years, reportedly working two jobs in his youth: one for bills and spending money, and the other strictly for saving purposes.

 

Since retiring from The Tonight Show (the wages for which he reportedly put entirely into his savings accounts throughout his run), Leno has lived purely off the proceeds from his lucrative stand-up career, which is presumably a lot easier with all that extra money stashed in the bank. He might have a serious predilection for buying classic cars, but the funnyman has allegedly “never spent a dime” of his late-show money, “— ever.”

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

 

She’ll always be Carrie to most of us, a Sex and the City character who, in spite of submitting maybe 1,000 words of copy a week, managed to live in a $700-a-month apartment in NYC while purchasing copious amounts of designer shoes and heading out for cocktails practically every night. According to The Richest, Sarah Jessica Parker, the actress otherwise known as Carrie, is worth an estimated $90 million, so if she wanted to buy a new pair of Louboutins every week, she could.

 

However, in a 2008 interview with Parade, Parker extolled the virtues of working hard for your money, revealing how she dressed her son, James Wilkie, in hand-me-down clothing throughout his younger years. This was thanks to Parker’s “older nephews” and the fact that her mother saved all of her brother’s childhood clothing, which meant she had no real reason to buy her son anything new, noting at the time that she didn’t think she had “ever bought him any clothes.”
