13 Celebrities Who Do Not Live Ostentatiously and Are an Example of Humility

year ago

Some say that fame changes people, which may be true. But while some, after a successful career and a full bank account, become unrecognizable, others don’t forget their values or where they came from. And it’s comforting to know that even though appearances carry a lot of weight in this world, many are dedicated to being themselves.

1. Keanu Reeves chilling out on the street


Keanu Reeves is perhaps one of the most humble celebrities in Hollywood. And while he’s had a tough time, the actor proves time and again that he knows how to be humble. He has a foundation that funds children’s hospitals and research to find a cure for cancer, and he leads a modest and simple lifestyle. For example, he sits quietly on the street enjoying juice before getting back on his motorcycle to ride home.

2. Sarah Jessica Parker exiting the subway

Unlike Carrie Bradshaw, who only used the cab to move around the city, Sarah Jessica Parker is an ordinary citizen who chose the subway to move around New York. To the actress, this type of transportation seems to be quite an adventure, so much so that on her Instagram account, she posted a video in which we can see her running up the stairs to exit of the E line.

3. Catherine Zeta-Jones takes her daughter to school by subway.

Instead of using the car, Catherine opted for the subway to take her little daughter Carys to school and proved that she is as ordinary a person as any of us.

4. Neil Patrick Harris using public transportation

The How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014) actor undoubtedly raises his children by example and uses public transportation whenever he can. Neil doesn’t let fame go to his head and leads an ordinary life.

5. Madonna riding a bicycle

The Queen of Pop is very concerned about the environment. That is why she is a vegetarian and uses the bicycle as a means of transportation to move around. She could be seen pedaling in Barcelona before a show as well as in London. In addition, as she follows very strict physical training, the bicycle allows her to keep in shape.

6. Reese Witherspoon playing with the kids at the park


The Legally Blonde (2001) actress proves she’s a mom like any other as she takes her kids, Ava and Deacon, to the park and waits for them while the kids have fun on the playground. Then they have a little picnic and enjoy some tasty slices of pizza.

7. Angelina Jolie chatting with her son’s college classmate

Any mom would be thrilled when her child goes from high school to college. And Angelina Jolie is no exception. Madoxx, the eldest son that the actress has with Brad Pitt, will study biochemistry at Yonsei University and Jolie was the one who took him to the institution and stayed talking to some of his classmates.

8. Andrew Garfield using the subway to get around the city

While in fiction, he moves around the city using webs and jumping from one building to the next, in real life, the actor of The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) uses the subway to move from one place to another. A coffee, some music, a thoughtful attitude, and... A free seat next to him! Who wants to take it?

9. Ashley Benson filling up with gas

“Hello, everyone. Just letting you know that I gassed up this weekend. Here is some evidence. I hope you are having a good time too. Please let me know what you’re having for dinner tonight. I need some ideas,” Ashley Benson says on her Instagram account, showing us that she’s as normal a girl as any of us.

10. James Rodríguez being an ordinary dad

Like any dad, the talented soccer player loves spending time with his daughter. He often shares videos and photos on social media, where you can see how much fun he has with little Salomé. They go to the park, have ice cream, and he even takes care of her hair. She’s adorable!

11. Geri Halliwell saves time and money with public transport.

Riding the subway is an everyday thing any of us do to get to work or school. And singer Mariah Carey also wanted to experience this. But, of course, she did it Carey style. She moved around New York by public transport in a ball gown and recorded the moment with a fun video that she uploaded to her Instagram account. The former Spice Girl surprised the citizens of London by boarding the subway for the first time in 17 years. She was so excited that she shared some tips on her Twitter account to get the most out of this means of transport.

12. Niall Horan and his selfie in the subway

“Selfie on the subway” wrote the former One Direction singer on his Instagram account. Niall seems to enjoy this means of transportation so much that he even takes pictures during his trips.

13. Sandra Bullock and Rihanna eating hot dogs during a break
