Major Celebrities That Live Like Average People

When someone becomes a celebrity and starts making more money than they can count, it’s easy to lose sight of reality. While some individuals choose to start buying fancy cars, jewelry, mansions, or completely unnecessary things, others remain humble. These people invest in their future, take care of their families, save, or use the money to help others. They chose not to let their money change their lifestyle and would rather live modestly than be remembered as an ostentatious individual. These are those celebrities that decided to live an average life regardless of their wealth or success.

You probably know her for starring on the wildly successful show New Girl, acting in the indie hit 500 Days of Summer, or being an icon for quirky individuals worldwide. But despite how successful Deschanel has become, she’s managed to stay as humble as she appears to be.

According to the financial documents revealed during her divorce to musician Ben Gibbard, Deschanel is very responsible with her rather large income. She’s a surprisingly frugal shopper and spends most of her money on the bare necessities as well as planning for her future. On top of that, she is well-known for her contributions to various charities and organizations around the world.
