As a world-famous pop star, you can imagine Ed Sheeran doesn’t spend much time at home. For this reason, he hasn’t wasted money or time on getting a place of his own. In fact, he has stated he still gives himself an allowance of about $1,000 per month. According to Sheeran, that is mostly spent on taxis.

“You never want to be wasteful,” he said. ”I use my Barclays student account. I’ve not upgraded because I don’t spend much money. If I had all my money in one account, I would spend all of it, so I get an allowance.” The singer-songwriter is also famous for crashing on the couch. He lived in Courteney Cox’s spare room for some time.

J.K. Rowling is known around the globe for her successful book series Harry Potter that was later adapted into films. Many people don’t know that she went through a difficult divorce right after having her daughter and wound up on government assistance. During this tough time, she began writing the HP series.

It was initially rejected by 12 publishing agencies. Eventually, she found one to pick up the book and the rest is history. The books have sold more than 450 million copies of each of the seven novels. Rowling hasn’t inflated her life much though. She still stays relatively under the radar.

Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots is another person we can all take notes from. Even though he signed a multi-million dollar deal with the Patriots, Gronkowski hasn’t touched a penny of his NFL earning.

“I live off my marketing money and haven’t blown it on any big-money expensive cars, expensive jewelry, or tattoos and still wear my favorite pair of jeans from high school,” he stated.

Ashley Greene from the Twilight movies learned a lot of her money habits from her family. Even though she has a significant amount of wealth, she still flies first class and saves money where she can. Greene says there is an important reason for this.

In the event she is unable to get work (or not finding work she likes), she has money to fall back on. According to Greene, her dad taught her about being frugal and saving money. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs,” she said.

A post shared by Tiffany Haddish (@tiffanyhaddish) on

Break-out comedian Tiffany Haddish is another frugal star who sets a great example with her money. Even though she’s fairly famous now, Haddish still saves her money. She told People that she still drives her Honda HR-V. Her designer bags? Gifts!

The fact that Haddish was homeless for some time helps motivate her to stay on budget and not overspend. She doesn’t see that changing any time soon either. “Yeah, it’s here now, but will it be here in five years?” she questioned. “I don’t know.”

What is Actress Laura Harrier’s Net Worth?

Laura Harrier's Net Worth

2020 is the year of the breakout star! Netflix and other streaming services have been able to fund their own projects and, in many cases, pay actresses and actors more money. Performers that have been acting for years are now getting more time in the spotlight. Although she’s been acting for years, Laura Harrier’s net worth has significantly increased since she started working with Netflix. Here is how… [Read more…]

Millie Bobby Brown’s Net Worth

Millie Bobby Brown's Net Worth

Netflix has been able to change the entertainment industry drastically since its debut. What once started as a mail-order DVD service has evolved into one of the most popular streaming services known to man. The company has also introduced some of America’s favorite shows and performers, like Stranger Things. Here is a look at Netflix star Millie Bobby Brown’s net worth.

About Millie Bobby Brown

Most people recognize Brown from the Netflix series Stranger Things but don’t know much more about her. She was born in Spain on February 19, 2004. Brown was born with partial hearing in one ear and eventually lost all hearing on that side over time.

Throughout her childhood, her family moved between the United States and Europe quite often. Her family now resides between Atlanta, Ga. and London, which helps her acting career flourish.

The young actress got her start in 2013 when she was just nine years old as a guest star on ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. In 2014, she landed a starring role in BBC America’s series Intruders. After that, her career really began to take off. She made appearances on Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, and NCIS.

Then, in 2016, she landed the biggest role of her career (so far). After appearing in the Netflix original series, Brown began picking up work elsewhere too. She made her film debut in 2019 in Godzilla: King of Monsters. She will reprise her role in the 2020 Godzilla film.

In addition to her work on screen (big and small), Brown is breaking records in Hollywood. Brown’s portrayal of Eleven in Stranger Things earned her an Emmy Award nomination, making her one of the youngest nominees in history. She was nominated for a number of other awards for the role as well.

She is also the youngest person to have ever been featured on the Time 100 list of the world’s most influential people. Not to mention, she is the youngest person to have ever been appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. There’s no doubt that Brown has seen success throughout her short career and will likely continue to land more gigs. But what has that done for her overall wealth?

Millie Bobby Brown’s Net Worth: $10 Million

It is estimated that Millie Bobby Brown’s net worth sits around $10 million. Considering she is only 16 years old, that is pretty impressive! The bulk of her earnings at the age of 16 have stemmed from her work on Stranger Things. It was reported that, for her role on the show, she made $30,000 per episode during the first two seasons. In the third season, she reportedly raked in $350,000 per episode (that’s a pretty decent raise, eh?).

Of course, that is not the only thing contributing to Millie Bobby Brown’s net worth. For her role in the 2019 Godzilla film, she was paid $1 million. Her pay for the upcoming monster movie is likely to be about the same.

Endorsements and Assets

Millie Bobby Brown's Net WorthOutside of acting, Brown has been able to make money on the side as a model and endorser. In 2017, she made her modeling debut in a Calvin Klein campaign. Later that same year, she was contracted with IMG Models, which helped her land future modeling gigs.

Brown has represented big brand names such as Citigroup, Converse, Vogue, and has even dipped her toe into the videogame world. She worked with EA Games in 2018 on The Sims 4. Each of these endorsement deals puts her in front of an audience that otherwise may not have seen her, which is fantastic!

On top of all of that, Millie also has her own brand (Florence by Mills). It is a beauty brand focusing on clean, vegan makeup, and skincare. Brown spent two years working on the company before its launch.

Brown has plenty of work lined up for her in the near future too, including a new film called The Thing About Jellyfish. She is looking to add production credits to her resume soon as well with the film adaptation of the Enola Holmes Mysteries book series. So, it is safe to say her net worth will continue to climb in the years to come.
