10 Celebrities Who Preferred Living A Simple Life

Often times we forget that even though celebrities attend fancy parties, wear the most expensive clothes, buy everything they want, they are just like us. Ordinary people. Posting their lavish lives or anything that they buy is not for all famous people. Even if they can have everything they want, they prefer the simple life. After all, it’s the little things that sometimes make you the happiest.

Here’s a list of celebrities that choose simple life over the one they can have.

I would say 99% of the times I have seen Mark on any event it was him wearing simple T-shirts. He even claimed that clothes are not something he wants to spend time thinking about. The founder of Facebook doesn’t care about his appearance, as long as he feels comfortable. Even though with all the money he has, he can buy anything from those designer clothes.
