Chinese movie legend Chow Yun-fat says he plans to give his entire net worth, a whopping $5.6 billion HKD (that’s $714 million USD) to charity.
Chow Yun-fat is one of the most down to earth celebrities in Asia. His fortune is estimated to be worth $714,000,000. He's currently living on about $102 per month.
"He looks determined, without being ruthless. There's something heroic about him. He doesn't look like a killer. He comes across so calm... acts like he has a dream... eyes full of passion."Chow Yun-Fat is the big brother of the HK film industry. He is still one of the most respected name in East Asia and the fact that he stood up for his own people when they protest against Beijing makes him even more popular.
Apparently, he stays frugal by taking public transportation as often as possible and doing charity work instead of spending it on himself. He also had a Nokia phone for 17 years (we can only assume it’s a flip phone), and only upgraded to a smart phone recently, when his Nokia one stopped working.
He shops at discount clothing stores, because, he said: “I don’t wear clothes for other people. As long as I think it’s comfortable, then it’s good enough for me.”
