Keira Knightley Gives Herself a $50,000 Salary for Her Purchases!

Keira Knightley gets in some shopping as she heads out on Wednesday (June 11) in London, England.

The 29-year-old actress recently covered the latest issue of Glamour magazine, where she talked about giving herself a budget of $50,000.

“Yes, it’s something around that. I mean, if I want or need something that goes over that, I get it, but, yes, around that,” Keira told the mag. “I think living an [expensive] lifestyle means you can’t hang out with people who don’t live that lifestyle. It alienates you. Some of my best, most hilarious times have been in the least luxurious places.”

adore her. She’s been around so long i forget she’s still quite young. I always found her well put together and intelligent compared to the other actresses her age gracing tabloid mags she was always away rom that.. except of course those british paparrazzi that stalk her house 24/7. Kinda creepy hope they dont anymore

Is that a yearly budget of 50K? The article doesn’t give the duration of the spending allowance. If so, that is a real good way to stay down to earth Living on a budget can be quite fun, it gives a person a chance to think before spending and to try new things, especially doing things that don’t cost anything.

I don’t want to to praise her comment because it sounds so pretentious. but I actually understand what she’s trying to say. 50k is still a huge budget over any of her friends who don’t live her lifestyle, but I totally agree about who she spends her time with. If you’re not rich and you hang out with a friend who is rich or becomes filthy rich overnight because of their career (like JLaw’s friends, for example) then it can make hang out times awkward. I know a few people who have friends that got to stardom… they can front your dinner bill and then something, but you have a small budget. You go on shopping trips and even if they buy you something, they can afford a whole lot more than you can, and their weeks are spent flying to luxurious places, premieres, parties and you’re working your low-key job trying to pay rent for your apartment and hanging out at dive clubs instead of the Chateau Marmont. I’m sure her friends benefit from hers perks, but it’s not an even playing field. Esp if the friend has real money issues and the rich friend starts complaining about trivial stuff with their material items/mansion upkeep. I understand not wanting to flaunt her money so that she can simply enjoy times with her friends as much as possible.

Out of all actresses in Hollywood, I truly think she is one of the smartest and has the best head on her shoulders. She seems to understand that friends and family are more important than the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and doesn’t lavishly spend money. She also doesn’t take on work just for the money, which I respect.

I think Keira and me don’t share the same idea of an unexpensive lifestyle.

# 6

HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Wait, what? ONLY 50 000? wow. OK, okay, I know she’s filthy rich so she probably forgot already what it’s like to have absolutely nothing but….. yeah, that’s not “a little money”. Regular people struggle to earn that over a year span… some even more lol. Rich people……. Some people don’t even have five bucks to get food and she says this so naturally, like it’s no big deal. especially with that following part “I mean, if I want or need something that goes over that, I get it, but, yes, around that”. I’m sorry but as much as I want to be nice to her, that sounds boastful. Horrible….. Life’s no fair.

# 7

It’s actually a very ok amount. If we are talking about 50000 per year (which I think she does), this is approximately 4100 dollars (or pounds?) per month which is the average monthly salary of a good paying job in London. It’s a good rule actually, considering the millions she probably has.

# 8

@Woh: And yes I agree life is not fair, and when it comes to money it’s painfully unfair. But in Keira’s case you see everything compared to other celebrities, and at least compared to them, what she does with her money is pretty decent and well-thought. But in our world, the real world, it’s a different story.

# 9

Jared put it in ambiguous way. Refer to original interview and you will know that she meant 50k per year. this is reasonable for a normal good paying job in UK.

Moar Keira!!! Knightley ROCKS!

@ZeNd: Ok, now it’s easy to relate. They way it was written, sounded that it was 50k a month. That makes totally more sense.

She looks awesome in red

She’s so full of ****.

@Liz: I think keira is pragmatic in the sense that she wants to try and live off the salary of a middle or upper middle class person. She doesnt seem the type to rub her status into the noses of common folk. So kudos to her.

Its keira! She looks incredibly pretty here. Gorgeous smoky eyes

She has been named the “IKEA” actress. Totally wooden and particle board at that, not real wood.

@Arlene: Ikea has a very diverse product line. Its one of the best, coolest places to shop for the home. Compliment!
