Keira Knightley’s Allowance

Well, this is interesting: the actress Keira Knightley makes a lot of money, but gives herself a $50,000 allowance:

While it may sound like a lot to some, Knightley’s net worth is a reported $50 million, thanks to international hits like “Bend It Like Beckham” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl,” which earned over $654 million at the global box office.

In 2008, Forbes named Knightley the second-highest-paid actress in Hollywood, after she raked in $32 million that year for her roles in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “Atonement,” and advertisements for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume.

So why does Knightley even bother giving herself a budget?

“I think living an expensive lifestyle means you can’t hang out with people who don’t live that lifestyle,” she says. “It alienates you. Some of my best, most hilarious times have been in the least luxurious places.”
