“I was raised to have value for money”: $160M Rich Hunger Games Star Jennifer Lawrence is Absolutely Uncompromising When it Comes to Spending Money

Jennifer Lawrence does not feel any different about her fame

Jennifer Lawrence became a global star at a very young age, but her fame hasn’t led her to splurge recklessly. The Hunger Games actress comes from a rich family, with her father owning a construction company and her mother managing a summer camp. Despite being one of the highest-paid actresses in the world and having all this family money, the Joy actress remains pretty frugal with her money.

Lawrence stuck to her $39,000 Volkswagen Eos from her teenage years even after entering the industry. On several occasions, she openly admitted that she would go bargain-hunting at the supermarket. The No Hard Feelings actress actively avoids high-end stores and their pricey products.

Despite Her Status, Jennifer Lawrence Thinks Twice Before Spending Her Money

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jennifer Lawrence has an estimated net worth of $160 million. The Best Actress Oscar winner got paid more than $50 million for The Hunger Games franchise. Lawrence easily commands anywhere between $15 million and $20 million for a role. But Lawrence prioritizes the value of money and thinks twice before spending her hard-earned money.

In 2013, the Red Sparrow actress opened up about her frugal lifestyle during an interview with Fabulous Magazine. Lawrence shared that even though she was loaded with money, she had the respect for her money to spend it responsibly. The Winter’s Bone actress further shared that she found mini-bars unnecessarily costly, drove the same car for a long time, and refrained from purchasing a new home. Lawrence told Fabulous (via Business Insider):
“I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it. That’s why mini-bars are difficult, because it’s like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there’s just something wrong with that! I still drive my same car I’ve been driving for a long time and I haven’t bought a house yet.”

Lawrence also shared that she hated shopping her entire life and preferred staying in than going out. The X-Men actress credited her family for instilling financial responsibility. She added that they never let her turn into an “a**hole” with money, which taught her important lessons in humility and frugality from a very young age.

Jennifer Lawrence Feels Weird About Her Fame

Jennifer Lawrence also told Fabulous that she hated walking around feeling famous. She revealed that she personally did not feel any different even after her newfound fame. The Silver Linings Playbook actress often forgot that she was a celebrity and only realized the difference when interacting with others. She added that this part about her fame makes her feel weird. Lawrence told Fabulous:
“I don’t ever walk around feeling famous. I walk around feeling the exact same way I have walked around my entire life. But it’s not until I talk to somebody and see in their eyes that I’m different. It makes me feel weird.”
Lawrence even found appearing for Red Carpets and stage promotions uncomfortable and shared that such events made her nervous. She added that making movies is what made her happy and that’s where she belonged. Jennifer Lawrence recently made headlines with her whopping $25 million salary for Netflix’s Don’t Look Up.
