While there are some celebrities who would like to flaunt their luxury cars and designer clothing items on their social media accounts, there are still some who are content with a simple life when the public eye is not watching.

Here are some of them.

1. Yeng Constantino

Hi. ?? Hehe!

A post shared by Yeng Constantino (@yeng) on

Despite having one of the most successful careers in the Philippine entertainment industry, Constantino showed in a two-part YouTube vlog the simple yet happy lifestyle they have in her home province.

While everyone would assume that her family is living a life of luxury, Constantino has proven that her family did not change despite her fame.

It has been a year since actor John Lloyd Cruz and his girlfriend Ellen Adarna took a leave from their high-profile showbiz careers.

Since then, they have been discreetly giving glimpses of their simple life and their son on their social media accounts.

Last month, Cruz was spotted at a fruit stand in Pasig buying fresh durian. In another instance, he was seen eating balut on a sidewalk.

Recently, photos of the actor buying some street food made the rounds on social media.

As seen in the photo posted by Instagram user @ellen_johnlloyd, Cruz, donned in a plain white shirt and blue shorts, looked like any ordinary passerby eyeing street food being sold at a street corner.

Another photo was uploaded on the same Instagram page which showed a netizen who took a selfie with the Kapamilya actor while he was buying fishballs in Makati City.

He was also spotted by Twitter user @norminapauline who got shocked when she rode a jeepney in UP Ikot in Quezon City and Cruz was among its passengers.

3. Solenn Heussaff

Filipina-French TV personality Solenn Heussaff is also the type of person who would go to local markets to save money on groceries.

On her recent YouTube video, Heussaff showed her subscribers how she does her grocery in Cartimar Market in Pasay City as if she is not a well-known personality in the Philippines.

“This is something that I do as often as I can,” Heussaff says, referring to doing her own grocery.

“They say, ‘whatever you put in your mouth is what you are going to look like’. So I like to buy my ingredients fresh and in the market. I love to go and buy my own stuff and see what I am eating so I am not going to send someone to do it,’ she adds.

She would also often stay at home and cook for herself instead of going to fancy restaurants or hire someone to do it for her.

4. Kim Domingo

She believed she could, so she did ?

A post shared by Kim Domingo (@therealkimdomingo) on

Model-actress Kim Domingo is no stranger to a simple life before she had a career in show business.

The Kapuso bombshell said that she became the breadwinner of her family and started working at the age of 14. She joined contests like Little Miss Philippines and Artista Academy and even tried her luck for Pinoy Big Brother to enter showbiz. In one of her Instagram posts, she added that she has also worked as an extra or a background actress before she got discovered.

She would often post home-cooked meals on her Instagram account which include usual household food items like hotdogs, salted eggs, sardines, canned goods, and dried fish.

One photo of her even went viral as it showed her eating her P50 meal like an ordinary Filipino – with her bare hands and with her feet on the chair she was seated on.

5. Andi Eigenmann

Filipina actress Andi Eigenmann said that she is happy with her simple life in Baler, Aurora. After she took a hiatus from show business last year, Eigenmann said that she felt unhappy with being an actress, so she decided to leave for a while and take a break from the city life.

That was when she decided to move to Baler and start a new life there.

She admitted that she found genuine happiness after giving up her expensive material things and focus on her own life. Eigenmann added that she just needs to earn money that will be enough to provide for her daughter, Ellie, and that would already be enough for her.
