In general, the really very rich people take the opportunity to buy the most beautiful like the most expensive houses in the world. There are celebrity homes that we would love to visit, and even islands that belong to celebrities. On the contrary, some people remain modest despite their wealth and choose to live in a small house or even a caravan. This does not prevent them from being harassed by paparazzi, too bad for them.
1. Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey is a renowned American filmmaker. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club and is the lead actor in Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece Interstellar. McConaughey has lived in a trailer for a long time for the simple happiness that this converted vehicle gives him. Since the birth of his children, the actor has invested in a house but he continues to use his trailer as an office and a place to relax.
Despite his estimated fortune of $70 billion, businessman Warren Buffet still lives in the house he bought for around $30,000 in 1957. Buffet could have lived anywhere but preferred to stay in his city native, Omaha, Nebraska.
3. Tori Spelling
A few years ago, Tori Spelling lived in a very modestly sized “bungalow” house with her family. She grew vegetables there in a small vegetable garden and raised chickens and a pig.
Kesha lived for a few years in a small house on Venice Beach with incredible charm reminiscent of the architecture of southern Europe. She now lives in a more modern house in Los Angeles.
5. Tom Shadyac
Tom Shadyac is an American comedy director who has become very rich thanks to his rather pleasant career. Owner of a huge 1,500 m² villa, Shadyac lived in opulence until 2007, when he suffered a serious bicycle accident. After this accident which almost cost him his life, the filmmaker has psychological consequences and has a revelation. He decides to sell his house and live in a caravan, far from his old luxurious habits.
6. Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg lives with his family in a nice house in Silicon Valley. When we know that Zuckerberg’s fortune amounts to more than 76 billion dollars, the house worth 7 million dollars remains a very modest investment.
7. Chris Daughtry
Chris Daughtry is an American singer who lives in North Carolina with his wife and four children. The family lives in a pretty house with four bedrooms and three bathrooms: Two of her children are therefore forced to share a bedroom. Rather unusual for a family that accumulates at least 10 million dollars.
8. Tony Hsieh
Tony Hsieh is the CEO of the online sales site Zappos and his fortune amounts to 830 million dollars. Despite everything, he decided to live in a caravan because for him “nature is the biggest living room in the world”.
9. Tim Cook
Tim Cook is the current CEO of Apple, one of the most profitable companies in the United States. His fortune is estimated at 650 million dollars but the businessman lives in a house estimated at less than 2 million dollars, which is modest for the city of Palo Alto where it is located, in California.
10. Christina Ricci
Christina Ricci is an American actress, best known for her role as Wednesday Addams in the movie The Addams Family. Her fortune is estimated at 18 million dollars, but the actress has nevertheless decided to live in a 200 m² apartment in Brooklyn. So yes, this apartment would suit us but when you have 18 million in your account, you can afford a little more.
