A regular or a simple life does not necessarily mean avoiding luxuries. It also implies that these celebrities try to contribute towards the society, as much as they enjoy their luxuries (keeping it to a bare minimum). Simplicity in one’s lifestyle gets depicted by their humility and the kind of values they inculcate through their work.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Everyone remembers the shopaholic that was Carrie Bradshaw? But, in real life, Sarah Jessica Parker is nothing like that. She’s quite the opposite.
