We often assume that just because a person is a celebrity, we always think that they live a luxurious and extravagant life outside the limelight and off camera.
We're used to hearing about their spacious mansions, expensive tastes, and extravagant vacations - we regular people could only dream of.
But what if you thought wrong all along? Here are some Pinoy celebrities who still lead a simple life, despite the fame and money, just like us!

He began his boxing dreams in the streets of Mindanao, and steadily knocked out his way into an impressive career of titles in a span of few years. Nowadays, he’s a lawmaker, swapping his boxing gloves with a barong Tagalog. Despite all these, he still eats with his hands when tuyo is paired with steaming rice.
2. Wally Bayola
Popularly known as Lola Nidora in Eat Bulaga, Wally actually knows a thing or two about sweeping a yard. With a thriving career as a gay comedian, he is actually a straight guy in real life who hustles hard for his child who has leukaemia.
3. Kris Aquino
The Queen of All Media is also the queen of her kusina! Kris washed the dishes when she was on a vacation with her family in Hawaii. Looks like her favourite yaya also took the day off.
