Here are some renowned figures who have chosen to live modestly:

Christian Bale

Christian Bale amassed a fortune portraying Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy and numerous other award-winning roles. 

Despite his financial success, he drives a surprisingly modest vehicle.

According to Supercar Blondie, the 50-year-old English actor drives a 2003 Toyota Tacoma. With a net worth exceeding $120 million, he treasures his Tacoma pick-up truck dearly.

His affection for his Tacoma is widely known in Hollywood. During the press tour for the film Ford V Ferrari, where Bale portrays race car driver Ken Miles, he and co-star Matt Damon discussed Bale’s fondness for the Tacoma.

Even Joe Rogan and fellow actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are familiar with Bale’s unconventional choice, as they mentioned it on an episode of the Joe Rogan podcast.

Her modest living is not just about saving money but also about helping others. In 2016, she donated $2 million to the Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville.

Yet, he is often seen leading a modest life. For instance, he opted for humble cars like a Honda Fit and a Volkswagen Golf, according to Canada Drives.

Instead of indulging in a lavish lifestyle, he prioritizes his family. He married Priscilla Chan in 2012, and together they have two children.

Keanu Reeves has a highly positive public image as reported by Brightside. He is known to be a workaholic, charming, and “excruciatingly shy.” 

After The Matrix was released, he generously gave $80 million of his $114 million earnings to the special effects and makeup departments. 

Money is the last thing on his mind as per Medium,“I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries,” Reeves said.

Despite his worldwide popularity and immense wealth, his character remains unspoiled. 

In March 2019, Keanu Reeves’ flight to Los Angeles was diverted to Bakersfield. He arranged a van to take him and the other passengers into the city, rather than waiting for the plane to be repaired.
