Most people have to work hard to make it by. But then there are the rich and famous – the overpaid Hollywood actors, the richest Americans, and those born into wealth. It seems like it's all too easy to forget what it's like to live without enough money to buy a private island. These quotes from celebrities about their wealth are out of touch, to say the least.

There are all too many crazy celeb quotes about being rich. Take Gwyneth Paltrow, who sneers at the thought of eating food out of cans. Or Paul McCartney, who quipped about writing songs purely for the cash. And then there are the ever-controversial Kardashian-Jenners; momager Kris has some eye-rolling thoughts on diamonds. These over the top things stars have said about wealth illustrate just how fame and money often go hand-in-hand with detachment from reality.

Money can buy a lot, but as these quotes prove, it can't buy tact.
