Chris Tucker's saving grace

Chris Tucker's money saving advice

WalletPop chased "Rush Hour" star Chris Tucker from our shared flight to the Cannes Film Festival this week to baggage claim, wanting to know: What's the best financial advice you ever got?

"Save your money, man, just save your money," Tucker replied.

Tucker appeared to be practicing what he preached in the short time I observed him. He flew in the cheap seats with the rest of us on a shuttle from Paris to Nice. No entourage. No obvious bling that his blabbermouth alter-ego might admire in "Rush Hour," the buddy-cop trilogy with Jackie Chan that has cleared more than $500 million at the U.S. box offce.
