Chow Yun Fat
Chow is a Hong Kong cinema icon and starred in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. He became a mainstream western following his role in The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Chow is one of the richest actors in Asia but doesn’t live like it. He famously used the same Nokia flip phone for 17 years before finally buying a replacement.
The Hong Kong native sold his vintage car collection because he is getting old now. Now he uses public transport because it’s more efficient in the city than driving. Fans regularly spot him at street food hawker stalls where he dines on a budget. These days he lives like a Buddhist monk and doesn’t waste money (via QZ).
