When we imagine the lifestyles of the rich and famous, it appears to be all fast cars and champagne. However, it turns out some celebrities spent their big Hollywood paychecks on the most mundane items. From Nicole Kidman's laundry to Brad Pitt's decor, check out what these huge names in entertainment spent their first big paychecks on.
The Australian star had very modest dreams back when she first started raking in movie money. Kidman told Time Magazine that her first big purchase was a washing machine for her parents.
The iconic movie star is clearly a man of class and sophistication. With his first major paycheck, Pitt purchased a period Craftsman chair and a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired lamp, according to an interview with Architectural Digest.
The famed rapper used his first big paycheck to buy a $60,000 yellow Corvette, according to an interview with Complex Magazine. Gucci Mane said he was attracted to the bright color and even bolder car. “I feel like if it’s yellow, and it’s a sports car, it’ll attract a lot of attention,” he said.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 'Scandal' star revealed that when she first started acting she would stash cash under her mattress to save it. After wrapping up production for her breakout hit 'Save the Last Dance,' Washington used her hard-earned money to buy a laptop.
The star of 'Friday Night Lights' used her paycheck to get her dad a special Christmas gift. Kelly told Instyle that she bought her father a giant flat-screen TV. Probably so he could watch her on it!
Some people dream of cars, others of a fancy apartment, Malek however, just really wanted a nice coffee. In an interview with GQ the star explained that an espresso machine was his first big purchase.
