Several hundred thousand, or even a million dollars for filming a film - such is the cost of the work of modern actors. With such a salary, it is not surprising to "star" and show off right and left. But still, there are individual celebrities who, in their behavior, did not get off the ground and continue to live simply and modestly. They sincerely believe that for happiness a person needs not diamonds and luxury cars, but more importantly the health of loved ones, their love and friendship. Today we want to recall their names.
You will be surprised, but for some time this highly paid actor preferred to live not in his own mansion, but in various hotels. Depending on the location of filming, he moved from one hotel to another, without staying longer than six months. The actor sincerely believes that his contribution to the creation of the series of films "The Matrix" is greatly exaggerated: for the role of Neo in the trilogy, he received a record $ 250 million. Therefore, Keanu Reeves simply gave out most of the fee to ordinary people who also worked on the project: costume designers, designers, and special effects creators. And 12 stuntmen from the team received the legendary Harley Devidson motorcycles as a gift from the star. Keanu Reeves is not a fan of fashion brands. He buys clothes for himself in a regular mass market. And he prefers simple food. Somehow his fans were filmed sitting on a bench and eating an ordinary sandwich with juice.
Since then, the "sad Keanu" meme has appeared. Perhaps the actor understood the price of every moment in his life after the tragedy that happened to his fiancee. Well, the terrible diagnosis of his sister's "leukemia" forced him to donate huge sums annually to help hospitals and research in the field of cancer treatment. “For me, money is the last thing to think about,” the actor shares with reporters.
How rare in our modern world there are modest people. So Konstantin Khabensky did good deeds for a long time without advertising them. He created a charitable foundation that helps children with brain and bone marrow diseases. He already has a lot of paid complicated operations on his account. After all, Konstantin believes that every life saved is priceless. The fate of the actor also presented him with a tragic situation. His first wife died of cancer as she refused to take medicine due to her pregnancy. The child survived, but the spouse could not be saved. Now Khabensky has a new family, but even today the actor prefers quiet evenings with family and creative work to social events. You will not find his pages on social networks, since Konstantin believes that there are more important things in life than self-promotion.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
Ashton was born into a poor family with many children and was used to earning money from childhood. And according to Mila's stories, her family emigrated to America with only 250 dollars. So both celebrities know that hard work is behind every penny they earn. It is now they have become highly paid movie stars, but just a decade ago, the actors took on any proposals, just to ensure the future of themselves and their children. With the onset of financially successful years, the spouses have ceased to be in need, nevertheless, their family budget continues to be built using the principles of economy.They are not chic, and in the upbringing of their son and daughter, they also prefer not to allow excesses.
Jennifer never tires of emphasizing that the rules of a glamorous life are not written for her. A charming and spontaneous blonde does not bother in terms of clothing: although she can make a splash on the red carpet, nevertheless, in ordinary life, it is difficult to distinguish a girl from an ordinary American woman. She almost always goes without makeup, loves jeans and loose-fitting clothes. And in order not to be noticed, the star chose a variety of hats and glasses. The girl does not hesitate to declare that the notorious 906090 is not for her: she does not agree to give up the joy of eating something tasty for the sake of modern beauty canons. According to the actress, she would rather spend an evening with friends watching a good movie than go to a fashionable get-together. And from her rather large fees, the actress postpones honor for the future, and donates a considerable amount to charity.
For 20 years, the star of "Gladiator" has changed almost beyond recognition: instead of the athletic commander Maximus, we have a funny fat man. On the one hand, this was influenced by the last roles in the films "The Loudest Voice" (2019) and "Furious" (2020), for which Russell had to significantly recover, but on the other hand - a quiet life on his own ranch in Australia. The actor liked the rural tranquility so much that he confesses to journalists: "Only a world-class cataclysm or the invasion of the Martians can make me move to America again." Russell Crowe sincerely considers the birth of two children to be the most important achievement of his life. Therefore, despite the divorce from his wife, their sons often visit their father's farm and help him with the household. The parents of the celebrity and the family of his brother also live in a cozy family nest. So it is difficult for an actor to think about the Hollywood get-together and newfangled things - he either disappears on the next set, or runs a ranch.
Perhaps it was the strict and religious upbringing of Jennifer and her two sisters that played a role in the way a successful actress now builds her life. In childhood, the parents did not allow the girls any excesses, forced them to dress modestly, and there was no question of makeup and jewelry in the ears. Then came the need during the formation of Jennifer as an actress - her fee at first was $ 150 a week. So the star has developed the habit of being thrifty about money over the years. Now Jennifer is a mother of three children, and together with them she believes that the best form of daily transport is a bicycle. She uses it to go shopping at the local supermarket and the market, as well as in clothing stores - the star also updates her daily wardrobe with millions of royalties in regular stores. No, of course Jennifer Garner, like a star, attends the most important events in the world of cinema. But instead of bodyguards, she takes her grown-up children with her.
Conscious shopping is what the charming Hollywood star chooses. She limits her budget for buying clothes to a certain amount and tries not to go beyond the limit. At the same time, a celebrity chooses democratic clothes without well-known labels and does not resort to the services of professional stylists. The same rule applies to entertainment. She is alien to the glamorous burning of life, because, as the beauty admits, all the funniest parties in her life took place in completely non-bohemian places.

Most of the world has been calculating time for four centuries using a calendar called the Gregorian. The year of this calendar is divided into 12 months and lasts 365 days. One additional day is added every four years. Such a year is called a leap year. This is necessary in order to remove the difference between the movement of the sun and the calendar. This concept was introduced in the late 16th century by Pope Gregory XIII as a reform of the Julian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is generally accepted because
