Most of us couldn’t wait to start earning and taste freedom after our 18th birthday. This would naturally mean living all by ourselves and making our own rules. So what could have stopped these high net-worth celebs from doing that? They are not just independent, but they legit deal with millions of dollars. But instead of moving out of their parental house, they took their parents with them. These self-made celebrities bought luxurious mansions and moved in with their parents. In a way, we can say that it’s the parents who live with their children. While some prefer relishing the freedom, these stars chose to take care of their mom and dad and stay close to them. So, here are the 10 celebs that lived with their parents as adults.
Fame and success came to Zendaya at a very young age. She became financially independent ever since she appeared on Disney channel shows, “Shake It Up” and “K.C. Undercover”. Now, the actress has moved on to bigger projects like “Spider-Man” and “Euphoria” and has a net worth of $15 Million. She even purchased an extravagant house in L.A. but continued to live with her parents in it for a long time.
Bradley Cooper has more depth to him than what appears on the glitzy Hollywood screen. His love and devotion to his mother are simply admirable. He is highly grateful to his parents for everything that they did for him. After all, that’s the least we can do for the wholesome upbringing and education they tried to provide us. After losing his father, the actor convinced his mother to move in with him.
When it comes to the most bada*s and empowering actresses in the film industry, Jennifer Lawrence always appears in our mind. She had a tough beginning in Hollywood but fought her way to success anyway. No matter how strong she appears on the outside, “The Hunger Games” star has a weakness for her family. She doesn’t like the idea of living alone, especially in the big Hollywood mansions. Jennifer often calls her mom over to live with her and accompany her to various places.
We often forget that Billie Eilish is still pretty young when we look at her achievements. The singer who instantly shot to fame after “Ocean Eyes” is currently 19 years old. She not only lives with her parents but also sleeps in their bed. Eilish revealed it herself during an interview and blamed it on her obsession with horror films. She suffers insomnia due to her fear of monsters and therefore prefers sleeping in their bed.
Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan is known for his tough roles on screen with “Creed” and “Black Panther”. But when it comes to his parents, the actor wears his heart on his sleeves. He is 34 years old and has a net worth $25 Million. But it wasn’t until 2020 that he separated from his parents. He has bought a new home not so far away from that of his parents, as he is currently dating Lori Harvey.
The “Django Unchained” actor is a hero both on and off-screen. There are endless instances of Foxx saving someone’s life or simply being a good friend. Jamie Foxx is also a great son who has taken complete responsibility of his parents. After his father got released from the prison, Jamie helped him stand back on his feet and restart everything afresh.
After Barack Obama became the President of the United States in 2009, Michelle Obama invited her mother to live with them at the White House. Even though her mother was reluctant about the whole idea, she couldn’t turn down the Former First Lady’s hard insistence. Being the First Family came with its own set of challenges even for the empowering Michelle Obama. Her mom’s support during those days meant a great deal to her.
Robert Downey Jr.
The beloved MCU star may be kissing fat checks for mere cameo roles nowadays. But RDJ had to go through hell before becoming an international sensation. Regular run-ins with the law over drug possessions and trespassing during his youth was driving his career south. When life gave him a second chance with the Iron Man role, RDJ grabbed onto it and took a sharp turn. As his career started to go upwards, he bought a house in L.A. and asked his mother to move in with him.
This case is slightly different from the rest on this list. When Kim and Kanye West’s swanky mansion was under construction, the couple had moved in with Kim’s mom. They didn’t need a temporary apartment when they could seek a room in Kris Jenner’s enormous house. The now-estranged couple lived under Kris’ roof for nearly three years.
One of the most successful stars and “Pretty Woman” of Hollywood lived with her mother even in her 40s. Julia Roberts tried to provide her mother with both financial and emotional support after the demise of her half-sister.
