İşler, who has lived in Bodrum, a world-famous tourist hotspot in the southwestern province of Muğla, for more than a decade, said he has currently moved to a hotel in Istanbul.
“All of my things are packed in two boxes that are in a friend’s house. My house in Bodrum was like a warehouse; now I got rid of them all, ”he said in an interview with a YouTube channel.
Emphasizing that he has slowly adapted to minimalist life, İşler said: “Life finally fits in a backpack. If I need something, I go out and buy it.
When asked if he felt “secure” financially, the famous actor emphasized, “I don’t have too many luxuries. Sometimes I go abroad for vacation, that’s all.
His statements became the inspiration for an article for daily columnist Hürriyet Doğan Hızlan, in which he listed celebrities who lived in hotel rooms.
“When I heard İşler’s words, I remembered those who slept in hotels,” he wrote.

Journalist İhsan Ada was another Turkish personality who spent his life in a hotel room. “My friend, Yüksel Gözen [actor] died in a hotel room, ”Hızlan noted.
