 How 8 Successful Celebs Spent Their First Paycheck

We all seem to forget that celebrities are just normal people like you and I who came from humble beginnings with a lot of drive, hard work, and ambition. Your very first major paycheck is an exciting and highly motivating thing. Continue reading to find out what these 8 successful celebs spent their first major paychecks on.

As we can all relate, receiving your first proper paycheck gives you a sense of accomplishment and fuels your drive to succeed. I’m sure we’ve all wondered, at least once, on how some of the world’s richest people spent their paychecks. 

1. Warren Buffet

Warren Buffet

The highly successful investor spent his first paycheck on his very first stock. Most people don’t know this, but Warren Buffet had a very early start to his wealth. He had already bought his first stock at age 11, and he was a newspaper delivery boy who used to make $175 a month. Warren’s estimated net worth is a mind-bending $67.3 billion according to Forbes. This places him as one of three richest people in the world. 

2. Mark Wahlberg

Unsurprisingly, Mark’s entertainment career was quickly flourishing, so he splurged on a brand new Mercedes. “I spent it all on the Mercedes Benz and didn’t have money for registration, insurance or gas,” he laughed. Mark is worth a cool $225 million and the actor came in at number 10 on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid actors of 2015. 

3. Mark Cuban

Mark is a billionaire. He owns the Dallas Mavericks and started making money at the age of 12 by selling garbage bags door-to-door. Mark really wanted a pair of basketball shoes, but his father told him that if he wanted them he would have to buy them himself. The young ambitious Cuban did just that and worked his way to the top. He spent his first paycheck on his very own pair of basketball shoes, and to this day is worth an estimated $3 billion.

4. Kathy Griffin

This comedian might be funny, but she really means business because she’s now worth over $20 million. “I splurged on my mom and dad first, because, you know, they’re very working class and always took care of me and paid for my acting classes and my braces, which I still hear about,” she explained. “So it was all about getting them a nice place to live, and that’s really the most fun part,” she added. 

5. Ariel Winters

The popular “Modern Family” actress said that she blew her first paycheck on shoes. “I bought a lot of shoes. I love shoes,” she said. The 17-year-old actress is worth $7 million and earns almost $75,000 per episode. 

6. Dita Von Teese

It comes to no surprise that as a teenager, the burlesque star started working in a lingerie store, first as a stock girl and then in sales. “I am sure I spent almost all of my first paycheck on a gorgeous set of lingerie!” said Dita. 

7. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

The beautiful and talented actress and singer spent her first paycheck on helping her family afford the rent of an apartment they were living in in LA after moving from Texas. She then splurged on shoes after that. “I didn’t really buy much. I got my Ford Escape,” she explained. Selena is worth a whopping $18 million. 

8. Judge Judy

Judge Judy

“My husband and I were civil court judges living in one room, driving a second hand car,” said Judith Sheindlin, star of the TV show “Judge Judy”. After she landed her daytime courtroom show, Judith was making three times her judge’s salary and finally had the chance to splurge. Judith bought a pair of Robert Clergerie shoes. Today, Judith is worth $250 million.
