With private islands, luxury yachts and super fast jets, being a celeb is tough (what are we kidding, it’s awesome!). But have you ever wondered where these stars would stash their cash if they were just like us?

Mozo has analysed some of the world’s most talked about celebs and matched them with their perfect bank accounts.

Here are our top celebrity bank account picks:

1. Kim Kardashian – More rewards please!

We can't compile a celebrity list without putting the “what was she famous for?” Kim Kardashian, otherwise known as Kimmie at the top of the celebrity bank account list.

Socialite and shopaholic, Kimmie is often caught by the paparazzi hitting up the pricey shops on Rodeo Drive, purchasing the latest designer threads and baby outfits for North. So Kimmie’s ideal bank account would be one that rewards her for spending. Like totts!

Top rewards bank account picks:

Bankwest Rewards Transaction Account – $6 monthly account keeping fee. Earn 1 point for every $100 in your account each day, 5 points per $1 spent on the linked Rewards Debit MasterCard and a generous 10 points per dollar spent online or overseas.

2. Angelina Jolie – No overseas fees thanks

Actress, filmmaker…have we forgotten anything? Ah yes humanitarian.

Jolie is constantly jetsetting overseas on field missions with her brood of six kids in toe and her husband (forgot his name, you know her less famous actor hubby). So she’ll need a bank account that is linked to a travel friendly debit card with low overseas ATM withdrawal, purchase and foreign exchange fees.

The perfect bank accounts for Jolie:

Citibank Plus Transaction Account: No account keeping fee, no overseas ATM withdrawal or purchase fees and no foreign exchange commission.

RAMS Action Account: No account keeping fee, $5 overseas ATM withdrawal free, $1.75 overseas purchase fee and no foreign exchange commission.

3. 50 cent – More bling around my neck

American rapper fiddy cent loves nothing more than, you guessed it, cents. And there’s no better way to get more cents (or even dollars!) in his pocket than with a bank account that offers a cash back offer with its debit card.

Bank accounts with free money offers:

ING DIRECT Orange Everyday – No account keeping fee. 2% cash back on “tap and go” purchases in Australia and free access to every ATM in Australia, as long as you deposit at least $1,000 or more each month.

ME Bank EveryDay Transaction Account – No account keeping fee. 5% cash back on “tap and go” purchases in Australia for the first 6 months and free ATM access to any ME Bank, Westpac, St George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA ATM in Australia.

4. Hugh Jackman – No frills kind of guy

Aussie actor turned Hollywood star, Hugh Jackman may tear it up as Wolverine in the Ex-Men series but away from the cameras Hugh is known for his laid back attitude. So for someone who doesn’t need all the bells and whistles of rewards and cash back offers, a fee free bank account is just the solution.

Bank accounts for Hugh:

NAB Classic Banking Account – No account keeping fee, no overdrawn fees and no ATM fees within the NAB or rediATM networks.

Bank of Queensland Day2Day Plus Account – No account keeping fee, unlimited free transactions and no over the counter withdrawal fees.
