"Anna Karenina" star Keira Knightley isn't just in it for the glam.

In an interview for the July issue of Glamour, the Hollywood mainstay revealed that she tries to limit herself to a $50,000 annual salary in an attempt to stay grounded:

"Yes, it’s something around that," the actress said. "I mean, if I want or need something that goes over that, I get it, but, yes, around that."

"I think living an [expensive] lifestyle means you can’t hang out with people who don’t live that lifestyle," the star continued. "It alienates you. Some of my best, most hilarious times have been in the least luxurious places."

Knightley's allowance may keep her mindset closer to that of her struggling songwriter character in the upcoming "Begin Again," a musical romantic comedy from John Carney, the director of "Once." The film closed out the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, and hits theaters in July.
