Despite seemingly endless fame and fortune, ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson is one thrifty guy.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, Pattinson shared how he recently bought a car off of Craigslist for a mere $2,500.

“I got a 2001 [Chevy] Silverado. It’s beautiful. Solid car,” Pattinson said. “I buy everything off Craigslist. Every single car that I’ve bought.”

No problem with be thrifty, but Pattinson was named as one of Forbes Highest Paid Actors this year! The actor had a healthy payday of around $26.5 million dollars for the past year, which included the box office hits “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” and “Water for Elephants.”

While chatting with Kimmel, Pattinson described himself as “incredibly cheap,” and chatted about how the negotiation process for his new car went.

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

While Pattinson was more than content to talk about his love of cheap cars, mention of his scandal-ridden ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart was nowhere to be heard. The two split after Stewart was caught cheating with ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’ director Rupert Sanders.
