Some stars really love to save.
The word “star” in the mind of the layman evokes images of glamour, insane spending, luxurious mansions and expensive gifts.
And the news is often these thoughts are confirmed – it is another young musician bought a sports car, beloved by movie stars received as a gift a ring with a diamond the size of a fist, distraught by the fees the athlete squandered the annual budget of the Irkutsk conditional in a strip bar. But not all celebrities love so thoughtlessly throwing money, among them there are businessmen and neat, economical and skeptics. There are even real miser. Here are some of them today and we’ll talk – below is our list of the most tight-fisted of Hollywood stars.
Best known for the role in the TV series “Veronica Mars” Kristen bell may not have been able to break out into Hollywood superstardom, but the need she hardly feels. Christine regularly appears in films and commercials and leads an active social life – she is the mother of two children, animal advocate and longtime vegetarian. It is the ceremony bell prize “the sexy celeb, adhere to the commandments of vegetarians”, the actress admitted that the savings of a long and firmly entered her life. The young mother not only regularly receives discounts in stores for coupons, but generally in principle merchandised in cheap by American standards, networks Target and Costco. Appreciate earned money Kristen has taught parents, now is the ability it instills and children.
Stefani Germanotta, now widely known under the pseudonym Lady Gaga, was only in 2008 that broke through the wall of rejection from the studios and record companies. Up to this time she had to work not only for wear but also are extremely economical use of personal funds. Habit to count every penny still shocks many of her fans, which, however, does not care about the actress and singer: “Yes, I love to bargain at markets and in stores use discount coupons. Why look at me like a psycho? Machine to print I have no money”. It is interesting that at the same time Lady Gaga several times and was seen for a totally insane spending – so, it was reported that the pond near his house girl bought 27 rare fishes with a total value of 60 thousand dollars.
His reluctance to part with their easily earned money Toby Maguire explains the origins – the future Peter Parker grew up in a family belonging to the middle class, and with the most tender years was accustomed to watch every dollar. The painting “Favorite”, “the Great Gatsby” and, of course, the trilogy of “spider-Man” brought him millions, but did not change his Outlook. Acting success Maguire compares with winning the lottery: “Fallen from the sky money is easy to spend, quickly and mindlessly and again be left with nothing – this often happens to lottery winners. I don’t want that to happen to me, so refrain from spraying their savings.
In 1984, a young singer, who took as pseudonym the name of a ringing Madonna, on one of the TV shows without a shadow of doubt on the question of the leader about his goals for the near future responded: “to Rule the world!” Well, after three decades of creative ways you can recognize that your desire Louise Ciccone brought to life. However, the top of the charts, movie roles and all kinds of awards and made her a nice person. This can be especially true if otherwise serving the artist. So, Madonna is known for that never leaves a tip, and workers in the restaurants and cafes of new York and the Los Angeles times called the actress and singer “the biggest cheapskate America”.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Star of TV series “sex and the city” Sarah Jessica Parker spent his childhood in a rather simple family in Ohio – there were no signs that angular girl dress on sale, a couple of decades will turn into a style icon. The role of Carrie Bradshaw has significantly changed the views of the actress on the world, especially that even after the closing of the show, Parker has remained a favorite of several fashion houses and designers. But all this concerns only the external aspects of the life of the actress, the house without a camera, Sarah remained frugal homemaker from the Midwest – for example, the star admits that her three kids wore the clothes for each other or dress in second-hand stores. So Parker protects them from temptations.
One of the most talented actors of his generation Sean Penn today shines not only on screen but also in political battles, supporting American Democrats. However, Penn run, at least in some state authority, he would hardly be able to get a substantial number of votes, because all of Hollywood Sean known as the man who under no circumstances does not leave a tip. Room service restaurants all over the U.S. shares his impressions from working with the actor: “Penn often leads a huge group of guests, which attracts virtually all of our employees, but in response to the work he leaves nothing. It is very sad”. You hurt, and Sean Penn saved a lot of money.
To a much greater extent considers himself a theater actor than a movie star, Jeremy Piven rarely reach the pages of Newspapers, and especially in the column “Scandals of week”. Yes, and the screen Piven usually depicts people good-natured, decent and cute, even his Ari gold from “Entourage” in its own way a good guy. And yet one offense to the actor I remember so far – once Jeremy together with a large company noted some sort of joyful date in one of American restaurants. As befits a star, Piven served with a special zeal, the waiters had fulfilled his every whim. Imagine their surprise when instead of a tip actor left on the table… a DVD with his autograph. Art is priceless, but not to the same degree.
Jada Pinkett Smith
A rare pair in Hollywood can boast the same resilience, as the tandem of will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. They had struck the rumors about the cheating, they had to go through successes and failures, educating their children is always being criticized – and yet they are together. And not a disaster – will Smith is able to provide for the family for many years to come. However, habit is second nature, and jada still loves to save on trips to the shops. The paparazzi even managed to capture her and her daughter at the sale of the items collected charity funds for the poor. Of course, it is possible that the actress was just looking for some special, vintage, authentic things, but who else so spent the evening … his Saturday? Only meanie.
Member of the original trio of Charlie’s Angels Jaclyn Smith even today, in his 68 years, remains one of the most beautiful and sophisticated women in Hollywood. Despite the fact that the actress owns his own line of designer clothes, supports several charities, including funding the fight against breast cancer, and, in General, not poor, Smith is one of the most tight-fisted Hollywood Actresses. So, for example, regularly using the services of beauticians, Jacqueline never pay for work in excess of the specified in the invoice. This surprised even the girlfriend of the actress: “How can you pay for a manicure fifty dollars and not leave a dime in return? So it is possible to quarrel with all the best masters!”
Oscar-winning Hilary swank to that obtained for “Boys don’t cry and million dollar Baby fees is extremely sensitive – its 40 million invested in the business and regularly bring a stable income. The actress claims that she always tries to extract maximum benefit from any transaction if possible: “for If discounts you will need to cut out coupons from the newspaper, I’ll do it!” – says the actress. With many millions as any of us could “go on the roof,” but Hilary, whose childhood and youth is difficult to name the rainbow (a future movie star even had to live in the car), is grafted from wasting.
Unlike his partners on the show “Desperate Housewives” leading a luxurious life, Teri Hatcher else on set was nicknamed “miser” – it was that rare actress managed to breed for a dollar or two. On the contrary, Hatcher was remembered by colleagues the fact that after starring in the TV series carefully cleaned all the furniture out of his actor’s trailer, apparently, for subsequent sale to fans. In addition, from a young age Teri adheres to the “Golden rule” – to change personal car for a new one only after this “wound” ten thousand miles on it. Amazing thrift for TV stars.
