Positive opinion: 64% Negative opinion: 11% Neutral opinion: 22% Have heard of: 97% Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt has built a name for himself among audiences worldwide. Outside of his starring roles in "Ocean’s 11” and "Fight Club,” as well as his tabloid-heavy relationships with Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, fans might be surprised to learn that Pitt is also a big-time movie producer. His Plan B production company spearheaded giant blockbuster hits such as "World War Z,” "Moneyball,” and "Eat, Pray, Love,” and has won best picture Oscars for "Moonlight” and "12 Years a Slave.”

Imagine being a celebrity, and getting your first big paycheck. What are you going to do with all of that money? This has always been something that has been interesting to me. I like to imagine myself in the position of being a celebrity and finally having more money than I know what to do with. What would I do first? Or if I ever won the lottery, what would I do with the money? Would I buy a bigger house, or a new truck? Would I take a trip? I have no idea!

That’s why I find these kinds of articles, like this one I found on Buzzfeed, so interesting. It makes me feel like some celebrities try to stay as normal as possible, but then others are going to show that money off in a big way! Some of these celebrities used their money to buy clothes or other material things they’ve always wanted. Others of them spent the money on their families, sharing the wealth, literally. I also love the ones who used their money to get a huge candy haul.

On this list you’ll find people like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicole Kidman just to name a few. And you’ll find a really eclectic list of purchases. Every thing from cars and clothes to guitars and candy. Here’s the full article of what these celebrities bought with the first big paycheck they ever got.
