5 Popular Celebrities Whose Net worth is Less than a Million Dollars

5 Popular Celebrities Whose Net worth is Less than a Million Dollars

It goes without saying that one of the major reasons why people fight to join reality television or showbiz is the huge amount of fame and fortune that it brings in. In other words, appearing in movies and even on television is equivalent to financial well-being. But there is also the other side of the coin.

Believe it or not, there are a number of talented and popular celebrities whose net worth is not even equal to a million! While for some, the career graph has just started and there’s still a lot of time ahead, for others, bad investment, uneventful circumstances or unwise life choices have brought down the fortune.

Here are 5 of these celebrities who will always continue to remain popular, irrespective of what fortune they have.

1. Cardi B


    Cardi B aka Belcalis Almanzar is a television personality having a net worth of $600,000. She has become a household name for “Love and Hip Hop New York”, a reality television series that is aired over channel VH1. Her other notable works include performance in the music video “Chapi Chapi” and launch of the DVD “I Am: Cardi B”.

    She left college at the age of 18 years to join the entertainment industry, and started off as an exotic dancer, before rising to fame with a television career. The show “Love & Hip Hop”, although popular, saw rough patches, with the number of audiences gradually declining, but is once again becoming popular, thanks to Cardi’s personality.

    2. Eric Balfour

      Having a net worth of $500,000, Eric Balfour has perhaps acted in almost every type of role, some of the major television shows being “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Six Feet Under” and “24”. The actor has significant roles in movies such as “Skyline”, “The Spirit” and “What Women Want”.


      Probably the primary reason why Balfour has a low net worth in spite of being popular is that more often than not, he is a supporting actor, rather than a leading one. He is also pursuing a singing career, making considerable investment in this area.

      3. Hailee Steinfeld

        Hailee Steinfeld’s career started in the “True Grit” remake, but she is yet to find another match to continue that level of success. Although she is worth just $500,000 now, it seems that her fortune will continue to rise, given her outstanding grace as a young actress. She has done notable roles in films like “Ender’s Game” and “Pitch Perfect 2”, and has also started pursuing a modeling career.

        4. Margot Kidder


          Those who love watching Christopher Reeve “Superman” movies, are well acquainted with Margot Kidder, or the popular character of Lois Lane. She has also charmed many with her significant horror role in the film “Black Christmas” and has acted in movies like “Brian De Palma’s Sisters”, “Rob Zombie’s Halloween II”, apart from being a popular face in the “Smallville” episodes.

          Although having more than 100 acting stints added to her career, Margot Kidder’s net worth is just $300,000, probably due to the different health issues that she faced.

          5. Tom Guiry

            Beginning his career as a child actor in “The Sandlot” and other films, in the 90s, Tom Guiry now has a net worth of only $100,000. His early success did not remain with him in the later period, with his last famous stint being in “The Black Donnellys”, in 2007. Unfortunately for the television personality, this NBC drama was called off air just after a single season.


            Since that time, Guiry had hardly been seen on the big or small screen, and over and above that, he spent a lot of his money over substance abuse.

            These are just a few popular celebrities who’s net worth is below a million dollars.

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

            Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

            So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

            Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:


            Video Summary

            1. It is easier.

            When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

            2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

            Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

            3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

            Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

            4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.


              If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

              5. It could lead to better sleep.

              Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

              6. It can help your skin.

              For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

              7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

              Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.


              8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

              Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

              9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

              For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

              10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.


                Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                Sleep well with your naked body!

                With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
