Julia Fox: ‘I’m not worth $30 million…idgaf because I don’t need $30 million’

Last week, Julia Fox went viral on several social media platforms because she did a “home tour” of her somewhat cramped one-bedroom apartment in New York. Minus the mice, I actually thought it was an okay space for New York – she has some natural light and pretty windows, she has a nice-sized bedroom (which was supposed to be the living room) and she made an effort to make her son Valentino’s space really cute. Julia could be more organized, for sure, and if she bothered to get a professional organizer/decorator in there, it would probably be a cute and efficient space. But in some areas of the internet, she got roasted. People think she’s rich (she’s not) and that she can afford a bigger and better place (she probably can’t). So Julia got a little bit defensive and she has some more sh-t to say:

Normalcy for Valentino: “Even though I could have probably afforded a bigger place — probably, ’cause I am in New York after all — you know, it’s about having that sense of normalcy for Valentino. I don’t want him to grow up and be, like, a f–king pr–k.” Fox — who lived in a one-bedroom apartment in Italy before moving to Manhattan at the age of 6 — noted that she “grew up in the real world,” so she wants Valentino “to be in touch with the f–king real world,” too.

This is the only place Valentino has ever lived: “It’s really not that deep. This just happens to be the apartment that I took my son home from the hospital from, so it’s his home. It really is Valentino’s apartment. So, it’s a sentimental thing.”

She’s not worth $30 million: “First of all, I’m not worth $30 million. Not even close. And second of all, I don’t give a f–k because I don’t need $30 million. What does one person need $30 million for? I’ve survived on a lot less, and I’m doing just fine. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. All those celebrity net worth [websites] are complete BS.”

That’s not her couture: “You guys are like, ‘She wears thousands of dollars worth of couture.’ Borrowed couture! Jesus Christ. Come on, people. And most of the clothes I wear are, like, young designers who are, like, just starting out, to be honest.”

She was surprised that her home tour went viral: “I got a lot of mixed reviews, but most of it was really … supportive, and it really warms my heart that so many people could relate. I used to be, like, an aesthetic queen and want my space curated perfectly a certain way, but then I realized there’s more to life. I don’t give a f–k, OK?”

I understand living in a place because of sentimentality, but I also think that if she could afford a bigger place, she would probably move to a bigger place. Of course she’s not worth $30 million. Part of that is, pre-Kanye, Julia was definitely more of an underground figure, a downtown artist/fashionista/muse on the periphery of the high life but never really part of it. Could she have “cashed in” and made more money at various points? Sure, so I do sort of believe her when she says that money isn’t what makes her tick. Attention is what makes her tick. She loves the fact that her profile has been significantly raised post-Kanye. She loves that she’s getting tons of invitations to fashion events and premieres. But again, that doesn’t always translate to money.

Anyway, I still say that this is a decent place for New York and she should get someone to make it more efficient:

    A good % of Americans couldn’t afford anywhere near that type of apartment in NYC so why are people shaming her (besides it being messy).

    I’m unclear..does she not give a f????

  2. HeyKay says:

    I miss the days when celebs were famous for excellent talent as actors, writers, whatever.
    This woman had worked as an actress, now she is apparently going done the I’m a celeb/influencer/whatever.
    Btw, if she got an offer for $30M, she would jump at it. (most would)
    Ugh. I long for the day that every single Kardashian/Kardashian adjunct tool is gone.

    I think I’m starting to like her? I don’t know what’s going on with me…

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I’m not understanding me either. Why am I LIKING her?

      • Peanut Butter says:

        Same! I judged her very negatively because of her association with Kanye, and I still do. But, in spite of it all, I’m liking her. What is happening to the me I thought I knew so we’ll? LOL

    • pamspam says:

      Oh good! So it’s not just me. She seemed…kinda cool?

      • Erika says:

        I like Julia Fox now. She’s grown on me too! Her apt is fine just pls get rid of the mice!!

    • arhus says:

      I like her too. She’s a fun mess but honestly doesn’t really do anything that messy.

    • Skyblue says:

      I’m really liking her too. I like her messy-a$$ apartment. It feels real and so does she. Of course, I live in a constant state of messiness so on many levels she feels relatable.

  4. Mcali says:

    This is the most relatable and likeable Julia Fox has been. I don’t get the negativity towards her about this.

  5. girl_ninja says:

    I agree with Kaiser. Also get a place where the mice aren’t “cleaning” up after your son. Also, no one needs 30 million, but I would take it in a heartbeat.

    • TOM says:

      I would have made a great multi-millionaire. Alas, the Universe had other plans for me.

      I do wish the money for nice patio furniture would magically show up, though.

  6. Slush says:

    I wonder if living in this place is a financial security move for her. Perhaps she could afford something better in theory, but she may not have steady streams of income, so staying in a cheaper place ensures she can make rent in the slimmest of months.

  7. Isa says:

    I knew her clothes were definitely borrowed once I saw her home. All those outfits would take up too much space in that apartment.

  8. Lena45 says:

    That seems like a nice place for New York I would think? The kitchen looks nice and it looks decent size for what I imagine homes there are like. I kind of appreciate her just being real and not pretending that she lives in some ridiculous penthouse. Honestly her home looks like most homes of people with young kids, especially if we don’t have huge sprawling McMansions like myself. I have two kids in a really small space, only two small bedrooms, one teeny bathroom and a house from the 40s so there’s no closet space. I have baby stuff out everywhere because we just don’t have any storage and I try to get rid of as much as I can. I think the aesthetic homes people see on social media are just all really fake and not how most people live and we need to remember that the majority of people live in normal, cluttered non-perfect houses.

    That’s actually a 2 bedroom apartment. She turned her living room into the bedroom, because she turned her bedroom into a playroom for Valentino. In addition to the playroom, Valentino has his own bedroom. It’s a spacious apartment by any NYC metric. It’s just crowded with stuff, and, of course, she volunteered the rodent infestation info.

    She looks good with blond eyebrows and no Kanye-styled black liner all over her eyes. A very pretty woman.

    I love her! She’s so wacky and marches to the beat of her own drum! Refreshing!
