5 Celebrities Who Still Worry About Money

Posted by PZ on February 24th, 2015

Just because they’ve made some money and have successful careers, doesn’t mean they should spend carelessly. These 5 celebrities have all revealed that they live frugally and save, often still worrying about their future financial situations. Some grew up with little money and say they now don’t take a cent for granted, while others just believe in being sensible no matter how much money they’re making currently, because they don’t know how long it will last.

Ashley Greene


Ashley has always lived frugally: “I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”

Jay Leno

Jay worked hard from a young age and still saves most of his money: “When I was a kid, I had two jobs. I worked at a Ford dealership and at a McDonald’s. I’d spend the money from one job and save the money from the other. That’s still the way I am now. I live on the money I make as a comedian, and I put all the TV money in the bank. I’ve never spent a dime of TV money—ever.”

Kevin Spacey

Kevin has always valued money and that hasn’t change with success: “I still worry about money. I came from a modest middle-class family. My mother was the main breadwinner, my father was unemployed a lot, and I saw how difficult that was and I saw what it did to him. I was determined I was not going to be like that.”

Mariska Hargitay

Mariska grew up with very little money and so still worries about having enough: “I constantly worry about money. I make a lot now but I don’t feel that way because I was poor and had no money for a lot longer than I’ve had… I’m saving money to live on, for the future.”

Tyra Banks

Tyra has always saved her money: “I am frugal. I’ve always been this way. When I was young, my mom would give me my allowance, and I’d peel off a little each week and have some to spare.”
