8 Favorite Stars Who Chose LowKey Life Instead Of Hustling Around

Leonardo DiCaprio is the one who stated that "Money and accomplishment do not make you happy." The Dalai Lama did not say this. It is encouraging to discover that renowned people may be much like us in many ways, like having modest houses, being kind givers, and having no need to seek recognition for themselves. It is heartening to find out that their prosperity did not compromise their morals and principles.
Please allow us to share with you the names of a few well-known individuals who, like us, hold a deep regard for those who choose modesty over material success.

For two consecutive years, 2015 and 2016, Jennifer Lawrence earned $52 million and $46 million, respectively, making her the highest-paid actress in the world. She is considered a "financial role model" since she does not waste her abundant wealth.
She said, "I've always just lived in a modest condo in L.A. or a typical house in Kentucky" or "a tiny rat-infested flat in New York." She shows her frugal lifestyle by putting money aside for the future and giving to charity. For the Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, she gave $2 million in 2016.

2. Keanu Reeves

The general public has a highly favorable impression of Reeves. Others describe him as affable, hard-working, and "excruciatingly bashful." Eighty percent of his $114 million profit from The Matrix's release went to the crews responsible for the film's special effects and makeup. It seems like money is the last thing on his mind, as he states, "I could survive on what I have already made for the next several centuries."

3. Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood's portrayal of Frodo in The Lord of the Rings has made him a household name. Around $1.1 billion was made from ticket sales for this film internationally in 2003. Affluence and celebrity may have spoilt the actor, but that didn't happen. When asked about the most expensive purchases he has made, he mentions high-end audio equipment for his house and the importance of humility in his life.

4. Sarah Michelle Gellar

It's no secret that the actress is a strong supporter of many good causes. She explains, "I began because, from a very young age, my mother instilled in me the importance of giving back to the community, even if you are in a financial bind. What you gain in exchange is tenfold. But, it was difficult for me since I was limited in what I could do. Due of time constraints, I was only able to make monetary donations during my tenure on [Buffy]. And to have the opportunity to do so is just remarkable.

5. Robert Pattinson
