10 Celebrities Who Actually Chose to Live a Simple Life

4. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar started her acting career in early childhood. Although she is a well-known celebrity, Gellar prefers to live a modest family life. Together with Freddie Prinze Jr., who she’s been married to since 2002, they have 2 beautiful children. The couple looks very happy and always uploads photos of nice moments in their peaceful life.

The actress is also an active advocate for various charities. She says, “I started because my mother taught me a long time ago that even when you have nothing, there are ways to give back. And what you get in return for that is tenfold. But it was always hard because I couldn’t do a lot. I couldn’t do much more than just donate money when I was on [Buffy], because there wasn’t time. And now that I have the time, it’s amazing.”

10 Celebrities Who Actually Chose to Live a Simple Life

Robert Pattinson was established as one of the highest-paid actors in the world. In 2010, Time magazine also named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world. During his interview, he admitted that over the past 15 years, despite having a good income, he stays humble when it comes to most things. “This is still my style of clothing” — as he points to the skater T-shirt that he’s wearing.

Besides, he doesn’t forget about charity and sharing his good fortune with others. “I’ve been a donor and a supporter, and now I look forward to joining their efforts, so together we can give an opportunity to even more kids and young adults across the globe,” he said during a nonprofit campaign.

6. Mark Zuckerberg

Since 2010, Time magazine has named Mark Zuckerberg one of the wealthiest and most influential people in the world. And still, the press sees him living a modest life. For example, he bought very humble cars like a Honda Fit, and a Volkswagen Golf.

Instead of partying, he chose a family life and got married to Priscilla Chan in 2012. Together they have 2 kids.
