Robert Pattinson: “I Buy Everything Off Craigslist”

Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson is on the Forbes’ Highest-Paid Actors list as he pulled in around $26.5 million dollars per year for the films “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” and “Water For Elephants.”  Even though Pattinson is making a lot of money, he still knows how to be thrifty.

When appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” earlier this week, he said that he bought a $2,500 Chevy Silverado pickup truck that is over a decade old from Craigslist.  “I buy everything off Craigslist.  Every single car that I’ve bought.”

The pickup truck purchase he made was three months ago and it was from a seller in Chino Hills, California.  The seller did not know who Pattinson was.  Pattinson pointed out that he talked to the seller about the “gas prices.”  Pattinson also talked about the negotiating skills that the seller had.

“He didn’t really understand the concept of negotiating,” he laughed. “I [talked him down] 300 bucks and his comeback was, ‘What about 50 bucks more?’”
