The Most Exotic Animals That Celebrities Kept As Pets
Adding a furry or feathery friend to your family can be a great decision. Families commonly adopt animals such as a dog, a cat, a hamster, a rabbit, or even a parrot. But much like other aspects of life, celebrities seem to operate on a bit of a different frequency.
A number of celebrities have gone the unconventional route in their choice of pets. And while some celebrities have taken on non-traditional pets that are still cute, a select few have adopted animals that are nothing short of downright terrifying…
Tippi Hedren’s Lion
Tippi Hedren, animal rights’ activist and actress brought home an adult male lion in the 1970s. She named him Neil and she let him live with them in the house. The big cat played by the pool, slept with his humans in their beds and chilled in the living room. A few years later, the star stated that having such a dangerous pet live with them was a pretty risky and foolish idea.
Phyllis Gordon’s Cheetah
Phyllis Gordon might not be a name that many people today know, but she was one of the biggest actresses during the silent movie era, appearing in over 50 films between 1911 and 1941. Gordon surely makes this list for an iconic photograph taken of her walking down a London street with her pet cheetah.
Martha Stewart’s Peacocks
Martha Stewart has nothing short of an empire, turning her home decor advice into a multi-million dollar enterprise. As the quintessential homemaker, you may be surprised to learn of Stewart’s exotic pets. She was known to have six peacocks, however in the summer of 2022, the media icon posted that coyotes tragically ate the birds.
Nicolas Cage’s King Cobras
Actor Nicolas Cage stated in an interview that he gets inspired by animals for his roles. For example, the actor got inspired by his king cobras Moby and Sheba and the way they swayed. Cage used those motions to freak out the audience in the movie Ghost Rider. And believe it or not, king cobras weren’t the only strange pets he had.
Audrey Hepburn’s Deer
When she was on the set for the movie Green Mansions in 1959, the legendary Audrey Hepburn played a young girl that loved in the Venezuelan jungle and had a bond with nature. The actress befriended a baby deer during the shooting of the movie, and she adopted it. The deer loved Audrey so much that it would follow her to buy groceries.
Reese Witherspoon’s Miniature Donkeys
How did Reese Witherspoon end up owning two mini donkeys? She went to a friend’s farm one day and saw a bunch of miniature donkeys and fell in love with them. Now she has two of her own: Honky and Tonky. Although docile animals, Honky and Tonky expectedly are very noisy and Witherspoon’s neighbors have reportedly made complaints about the neighbors’ braying.
Vanilla Ice’s Kangaroo
Yeah, you saw it right; that’s a wallaroo, which you may know as a cross between a wallaby and kangaroo. The rapper Vanilla Ice bought his pet Bucky Buckaroo when he was a baby marsupial, and Ice said he spoiled his ‘roo a lot.
The ’90s star also had a pet goat named Pancho – and the two animals even bonded and managed to escape from the musician’s property. They were found unharmed after two weeks.
Nicole Kidman’s Alpacas
While at the farm in Nashville, Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban spend their free time caring for South American Alpacas. The long-necked mammals are apparently not enough to satisfy the Australian actress’ desire for wild animals. Believe it or not, but Nicole Kidman has also thought about buying snakes and keeping them at the farm.
Kristen Stewart’s Wolf-Dog Hybrid
It’s not weird that the star of the Twilight series, which is about werewolves, actually loves wolves in real life. Kristen Stewart had a thing for hanging out with wolf-dogs. Her mother is raising the hybrids, and Stewart loves to visit them as much as she can. “Cuddling such massive dogs is amazing,” she said in an interview once. We get it, but it’s still probably a little heart-pounding.
Steven Tyler’s Raccoon
While many people are scared of raccoons as they’re famous for being rabies carriers, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will tell you these guys are cute and make great pets. You can buy one legally, and they can even learn how to use the litter box.
Tyler also said that he took his pet raccoon on his shoulder and went fishing with it every day. A raccoon is actually a pretty docile animal that we’d expect a hard rocker to have, much like the next exotic pet…
Kirstie Alley’s Lemurs
Springing to fame as one of the main love interests of Ted Danson’s character Sam on the sitcom Cheers, actress Kirstie Alley was known for having a particular love for lemurs. Alley tragically passed away in December 2022, leaving behind several animals. She reportedly owned 14 ring-tailed lemurs, animals that are usually natives of Madagascar. One time when traveling, she pretended that one of the lemurs was a cat to get through airport security.
Paris Hilton’s Kinkajou
Paris Hilton is known for her choice of Chihuahuas as being her favorite army of dogs. But she also opted to buy herself a kinkajou. Back in 2006, her exotic friend became famous when he bit his human and made her go to get some medical attention.
Mike Tyson’s Tigers
If you’ve ever seen the popular comedy The Hangover, then, you must know that Mike Tyson had something a little more terrifying than pigeons. The heavyweight hitter has had two tigresses, named Kenya and Storm and a male tiger named Boris. The famous fighter had to pay $4,000 a month for them and $125,000 a year for a personal trainer. However, he sent them to a refugee in Colorado after it was discovered that he didn’t exactly have a valid license for them. Maybe the movie got too much attention.
Tori Spelling’s Chicken
Tori Spelling has a chicken she named Coco Chanel, and the bird supposedly goes wherever her human goes – even to restaurants, where Coco gets her own scones. Ok, a feathery pet is fine, but the next one might make people jump. Check out the next famous person’s creature.
Michael Jackson’s Chimpanzee
Most people know the name Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee that would follow the King of Pop in all of his business trips. The chimp lived with the star at the Neverland Ranch. Bubbles had his own crib in the master bedroom and used the same bathroom as MJ.
Did you know Bubbles drank tea with the mayor of Osaka? For safety reasons, when the chimp started to mature, Jackson had to let his chimp go to an animal sanctuary called the Center for Great Apes.
Salvador Dali’s Ocelot
Salvador Dali was no doubt an eccentric artist and person. His strong personality certainly fits with him having an odd choice of animals as pets. For example, Dali had an ocelot (similar to a bobcat) named Babou, who traveled everywhere with him. The famous artist even took the animal into restaurants with him. It also wasn’t the only exotic pet he owned. Dali also had an anteater who would often be his companion on his walks.
Charlie Sheen’s Chinese Water Dragon
Actor Charlie Sheen, who has made headlines in the past for not the best of reasons, naturally seems like the type who would own an animal called a water dragon. While the former sitcom star has said that he has Tiger Blood, his home didn’t end up being the best fit for the lizard.
It seems that he wasn’t so sure how to take care of his Chinese water dragon, which he named Hopper Jr. The actor’s pet died shortly after he got to its home, due to human neglect. Sorry, Charlie, but you’re ranking toward the bottom of pet owners on this list.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Tortoise
Iconic Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio went to the North American Reptile Breeders Conference and Trade Show in 2010. He wound up coming home with a 38-pound Sulcata tortoise for which he spent $400. He chose the biggest tortoise at the event.
The actor hasn’t settled down with a life partner but may be settled for life regarding his new friend. Tortoises can live until around 80 years old and can reach almost 200 pounds in weight.
Mike Tyson’s Pigeons
Yes, we know Mike Tyson is known for being a fighter that must have a rock instead of a stone, but he has a soft side too. Before becoming a boxer, he started to domesticate pigeons, and he owns thousands now. Pigeons are not the only odd choice of pets Tyson has had in the past – some of which have made it into Hollywood fame…
Hugh Hefner’s Zoo
The Playboy founder might have been famous for his “bunnies,” but many don’t know that he actually had an entire zoo on his property. Hefner had his own zoo license so that many animals could be found roaming the property. During a walk, you’d see peacocks, flamingos, spider monkeys, toucans, pelicans, capuchins and many other creatures. And bunnies, of course…
David Beckham’s Micropigs
Victoria Beckham bought her husband two micropigs for Christmas in 2009. The two adorable pink babies were named David Furnish and Elton John. The former Spice Girl spent about $2,200 for them. We wonder if they’re still around and how little they’ve stayed throughout the years.
John Quincy Adams’ Crocodile
When John Quincy Adams, the son of John Adams, was the 6th President of the United States, he received a pretty unconventional gift. The Revolutionary War hero and Frenchman Marquis de Lafayette gave him a real crocodile. If you thought that the President freaked out, think again. He kept the cold-blooded reptile in the White House bathroom. After all, the First Lady had her own “pets” too: silkworms.
Elvis Presley’s Wallaby
Elvis Presley was known as the “King of Rock and Roll” and even to this day is considered to be one of the most famous entertainers to ever live. So, it shouldn’t be too surprising that this music legend had acquired some unconventional things during his time. One of the most unusual possessions he had, was a pet wallaby. The Australian marsupial was actually gifted to Presley, so he didn’t buy it on his own. Eventually, Elvis wound donating the wallaby to the Memphis Zoo.
Nicolas Cage’s Octopus
The list of exotic celebrity pets wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the oddest of them all: Nicholas Cage’s octopus. We don’t understand how this octopus helped him hone his acting skills, but all we can say is it’s weird what people can buy when money isn’t an issue.
If you think that celebrities are eccentric in their pet choices, you can only imagine the vehicles that they ride around in. The price tag on some celebrities’ cars will dwarf the value of most Americans’ homes…
Tom Cruise – Bugatti Veyron, Estimated At $1.7 Million
No one’s surprised that Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise, who stars in the Mission: Impossible film series, is a huge fan of cars and motorcycles. Many of his films, including the aforementioned Mission: Impossible, Top Gun, and Collateral, have featured some of the world’s fastest and most exotic cars- and Tom’s personal collection isn’t far off. Thanks to his $570 million net worth, the mega-star can easily afford to drive around in the car of his choosing, without blinking an eye.
One of the cars sitting in his collection, the Bugatti Veyron, is currently the fastest car in production. It allows the driver to go from 0 to 60 in just 2.4 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 267 mph. For a change of pace, Tom can also select one of nine motorcycles in his garage.
Jennifer Lopez – Bentley Continental GTC, Estimated At $250K

It’s no secret that Jenny likes the finer things, and her vehicle of choice reflects that. Her vehicle of choice: a Bentley Continental GTC worth an estimated $250K. Not bad for a person with a net worth of $400 million.
Celine Dion – Maybach 62, Estimated At $500K
Canadian singer Celine Dion has filled stadiums all over the world. With hits like My Heart Will Go On, I’m Alive, and All By Myself, it should come as no surprise that she’s won over 7 Grammys.
Whether she is on stage or heading to the gym, she exudes class and grace wherever she goes. The same can be said about her vehicle, a $500K Maybach 62, which has a leather and wood interior.
David Letterman – Jaguar XK 140, Estimated At $137K
The former Late Night Show host hast been in the public eye from a very young age and has been successful throughout his career. Letterman has one of the longest-running shows in television history, anchoring it for 33 years and piling up a pretty good stack of cash. Despite retiring from the show, fans can still catch him on Netflix’s “My Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.”
David’s ensemble of cars is quite impressive. It includes 8 Ferraris, 6 Porsches, 3 Austin Healeys, a Chevrolet Cheyenne, and the iconic Jaguar XK 140, which set him back $137K: a small price to pay for someone like him.
Leonardo DiCaprio – Fisker Karma Hybrid, Estimated At $135K
Leonardo DiCaprio started gaining attention when he starred in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape when he was 18 years old. He attained star status after appearing in Titanic, and he’s now considered to be one of the best actors of our time. Besides acting, the star is well known for his interest in fast cars.
Mr. DiCaprio is the proud owner of a Tesla Roadster and a Fisker Karma Hybrid: two supercars that do not have a prominent carbon footprint. The car with the Eco-chic interior only cost Leo $135K. It’s good to know that the stars of his caliber are making environmentally friendly choices.

John Cena – 2017 Ford GT, Estimated At $400K
John Cena is one of the world’s most famous wrestlers, and if his success in the ring didn’t fill his pockets, his career as an actor did. The 42-year-old has a current net worth of $55 million, and it’s only going to go up with the projects that he has lined up.
Like many celebrities, John decided to gift himself a luxury vehicle: a 2017 Ford GT worth $400,000. It’s a powerful four-wheeler that’s sure to turn anyone’s head.
Jerry Seinfeld – Porsche 959, Estimated At $1.8 Million
Actor and comedian Jerry Seinfeld knows a thing or two about luxury vehicles; after all, he’s owned more than 45 Porsches. He’s sold 17 of them, earning a staggering $30 to $32 million from the sales. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, he’s donated every single cent of the proceeds to charity.
But there’s one vehicle that he has yet to part ways with: his four-wheeler, a Porsche 959 that’s currently worth $1.8 million. It wasn’t very hard to get either, at least for a man who’s worth $959 million.
Nicolas Cage – 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina, Estimated At $3.6 Million
There are very few things that actor Nicolas Cage has not accomplished in his two-decade-long career. Although most of his money comes from a string of ’90s blockbusters, the actor has also starred in a number of successful newer releases.
There was a moment when he was forced to sell off some of his possessions, including several high-end cars. He did, however, keep 10, including a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina, which according to several sources set him back $3.6 million.
Tiger Woods – Porsche Carrera GT, Estimated At $440K
Tiger Woods became one of the greatest golfers of all time, amassing over $122.5 million in prize money alone. Beyond golf, the sportsman has shown quite an interest in luxurious cars. A few years ago, Woods got into a bad accident while driving his Mercedes Benz S65, getting arrested for driving under the influence.
Such a loss was replaced by a $440K Porsche Carrera GT. It joined his already impressive collection, which included a Lexus LS460, a Cadillac Escalade, a Buick Enclave, and a 2001 Buick Benga. Woods also has yachts and a private jet that he frequently uses.
Robert Redford – 1964 Porsche 904 GTS, Estimated At $1.6 Million

One of the many cars in Robert’s garage is a 1964 Porsche 904 GTS, and its beauty can only be appreciated by seeing it up close. Robert bought the classic racing car for $1.6 million but sold it at an auction in 2019, and although the price was not disclosed, many sources believe that it went for more.
Jay Leno – 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Coupe, Estimated At $1.8 Million
Comedian and talk show host Jay Leno has not been shy about letting everyone know that he has a net worth of $350 million. He’s invested some of that money into building a collection of 130 cars and 93 motorcycles, and they’re not cheap, the stand-out being a red 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Coupe.
The vintage race car was purchased for $1.8 million and was stored away for a couple of years before the television personality came to know of its existence. Unbeknownst to Leno, the car costs more than its latest model, making it a great investment.
Sylvester Stallone – Mercedes-Benz G550, Estimated At $166K
It comes as no surprise that the star of blockbusters like Rocky and Rambo, Sylvester Stallone, has a fondness for cars. His success on the big screen allowed him to stockpile quite the collection of cars, including a Ferrari 599, a GTB Fiorano, an Aston Martin DBS, and a Bentley Continental GTC.
The cars clearly demonstrate Stallone’s masculinity, and his next big purchase was no different. In 2016, he bought himself a Mercedes-Benz as a gift to himself. His films have earned over $2 billion in the box office, so no one can blame him for putting the money to good use.
Lady Gaga – Audi R8, Estimated At $165K
The Grammy Award-winning singer is known for eccentricity on stage and in her outfit choices, and it was expected that her ride would demonstrate some of the same features. She surprised everyone when she purchased a $165K Audi R8, a vehicle that has both active and passive safety features, as well as a few amenities that are not often seen.

Devin Hester – Chevrolet Impala, Estimated At $250K
Retired NFL athlete, and potential future Hall of Famer Devin Hester used the money that he earned on the field to make a number of impressive purchases, one of which was a stunning 1972 Chevrolet Impala.

Devin’s car spent a few months in the shop until its worth reached a staggering $250K. He’s also the proud owner of a Chevy Caprice whose interior was customized by Louis Vuitton. It was also fitted with 26” rims.
Jason Momoa – Cadillac, Estimated At $16K
Actor Jason Momoa is one of Hollywood’s leading actors, starring in HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, and then picking up the mantle of DC superhero Aquaman. Although he’s had many other roles, those two were enough to increase his net worth… tremendously.
Nonetheless, his vehicle of choice is a pink Cadillac worth a mere $16K. Neither the vehicle nor its price is what anyone might expect from the phenomenally wealthy, 6’4” actor. But he’s named the car “Bernadette,” and he loves her! He also owns a Range Rover Defender Series 3, a Harley Davidson bike, and an e-cycle.
Steve Harvey – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Convertible, Estimated At $500K

Tom Hanks – Scion XB, Estimated At $18,675
Award-winning actor Tom Hanks has an astounding $350 million to his name, but unlike many other celebrities of his caliber, he’s not into flashy cars. His car, a Scion XB, doesn’t even fall into the “luxury” bracket, and Tom only had to dish out $18K to make it his.
It may be a bit modest for a man who has accomplished so much, but Tom, along with his wife Rita, prefers to spend money elsewhere- they own more real estate than some small countries.
Bradley Cooper – Mercedes-Benz G500, Estimated At $220K.
Bradley Cooper first popped onto the scene when he appeared in The Hangover and its sequels. He took on a few more roles, solidifying his place as one of the best in the industry. Instead of purchasing a flashy sports car, he prefers to drive an eco-friendly Toyota Prius…

Jennifer Love Hewitt – Bentley Continental GTC, Estimated At $218K
Jennifer Love Hewitt’s time in Hollywood has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. In the same way that she has experienced success, she’s also had a few movies that have not been as successful. Either way, the mom of two has earned enough money to splurge on a luxury car.

Cam Newton – 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass, Estimated At $255K
Former Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton has proven himself to be a force on the field at one point in his career, and as such, his bank account has seen the benefits of it. He’s invested quite of bit of his earnings, but he’s also looked out for his family the entire time.

Alessandra Ambrosio – Range Rover SUV, Estimated At $100K
At one point, Alessandra Ambrosio was considered the most successful and highest-paid model in the world. One would expect her to drive around in a Lamborghini, but that may be too much for people to handle. Instead, the now-retired model went for an unconventional choice.

Paris Hilton – Bentley GT Continental, Estimated At $400K

Katherine Heigl – Range Rover SUV, Estimated At $108K

Guy also owns a 1968 Pontiac Firebird, a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette, and a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle worth $166K. Rumor has it that he had his eye on the car for some time but could not afford it. He even wanted to mortgage his house to get it, but the idea was quickly shot down by his wife.
Keanu Reeves – Volvo 122, Estimated At $22K
The Matrix and Constantine actor Keanu Reeves is known for his down-to-earth demeanor. Despite having a net worth of $360 million, the star prefers simplicity over luxury, especially when it comes to the cars that he drives.
His Volvo 122 was the first car that the actor owned. He purchased it for $22K and affectionally named it Dumpy due to its poor condition. Dumpy got a complete makeover and is now worth more than what it was sold for.
Austin “Chumlee” Russell – Rolls-Royce Phantom, Estimated At $420K
Austin Russell, also known as “Chumlee,” is a businessman and reality television star best known for appearing on the show Pawn Stars. Since his first episode, he’s made quite a bit of money: enough to buy a few luxury vehicles.
Apart from owning a Maserati Gran Turismo and a 1964 Impala, Austin also owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom valued at $420K. $25,000 an episode would allow you to make purchases like that.
Jeremy Clarkson – Ford GT, Estimated At $450K
The Grand Tour’s Jeremy Clarkson became a household name after appearing on Top Gear, a show that’s all about cars, and because of this, there was enormous pressure on him to show off, and he did just that.
One of the many vehicles in Jeremy’s ever-growing collection is a Ford GT worth a staggering $450K. He’s also been spotted driving a McLaren P1 and a Toyota Hilux.
Connor McGregor – Rolls-Royce Dawn, Estimated At $350K
Professional MMA fighter Connor McGregor had been working as a plumber before realizing that he had a natural talent for fighting. He experienced success both in and out of the ring, investing much of his earnings in real estate. He owns several properties in Ireland, Marabella, and Las Vegas.
He also owns over a dozen luxury cars, including a Cadillac Escalade and a Rolls-Royce Dawn worth $350K. He also has three Lamborghinis in his garage, including an Aventador, and Aventador Roadster, and a Huracan.
Manny Pacquiao – Ferrari 458 Italia, Estimated At $270K
Manny Pacquiao has been one of the most celebrated boxers in the world, and his finesse in the ring has seen much success. In 2015, he was named the second richest athlete in the world, with some of his fights generating as much as $1.25 billion in revenue.
Like many other celebrities, Pacquiao has an amazing fleet of cars, including a Lincoln Navigator, a Porsche Cayenne Turbo, a Mercedes Benz SLK, and a Ferrari 458 Italia that cost $270K. They are just four of his twenty-two car collection.
Austin Mahone – BMW I8, Estimated At $148K
Austin Mahone rose to fame when he started posting cover songs on YouTube back in 2010. Now, at the age of 23, he’s one of the most popular pop artists in the country. Although he hasn’t been around for very long, he’s made enough of a mark for him to make some big purchases.
Such purchases include his BMW i8. He even customized his luxury four-wheeler to better suit his tastes. It included changing the color from candy red to a rust finish courtesy of MetroWrapz.
Sam Elliot – Chevrolet Suburban, Estimated At $50K
Sam Elliot, also known as the “eternal cowboy,” has been entertaining the masses since 1967, starring in films like A Star is Born, Gettysburg, and Murder in Texas. When it comes to his cars, Sam’s choices, unlike many other Hollywood actors, are more practical than flashy. For years, Sam has been driving a Chevrolet Suburban, a family-style truck.
With a net worth of $10 million, Sam can easily afford a luxury vehicle but opted for the Chevrolet, probably because he has to drive across rough terrain on the many properties that he owns. And he’s not the only one; many Hollywood A-listers dish out $50K for the truck.
Bing Crosby – Cadillac 1947, Estimated At $3,195
Actor Bing Crosby is a legend whose films, including Holiday Inn and White Christmas, were not only box office successes but also earned him praise from the industry’s biggest critics.
In 1947, the actor purchased a Cadillac, which at the time was only $3,195. Today, it would be worth approximately $57,350; not bad for an actor back then. He also owned a Mercedes-Benz 300 S Roadster and an Aston Martin DB6.
Danny Kaye – Cadillac 1956, Estimated At $4,600
Danny Kaye was a quadruple threat; he acted, danced, sang, and he was also a comedian. With so many notches in his belt, it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that he attained millionaire status back in the 1950s, especially starring in films like White Christmas, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and The Kid from Brooklyn.
By the time he was ready to retire, Kaye had enough money to live like a king for many years to follow, and he certainly did. One of his biggest purchases was a 1956 Cadillac, which was one of a kind both back then and now.
Clint Eastwood – GMC Typhoon, Estimated At $30K
Clint Eastwood has acquired an impressive record over the course of his career. You’d expect the multimillionaire actor and director to ride around in something that reflects his net worth, but no. He owns a GMC Typhoon worth approximately $30,000: a very modest ride for one of the highest-paid men in Hollywood.
While not every A-lister cruises around in a luxurious car, celebrity homes are almost universally over-the-top. Take a tour inside some of the most expensive and lavish celebrity mansions…
Taylor Swift – $17.8 Million
While most celebrities flock to the coastal media havens of Los Angeles and New York, Taylor Swift went a different direction. Sure, she has a home in Nashville where she made her mark as an artist, but her most impressive estate is in the small state of Rhode Island, of all places.
We aren’t sure if there’s any reason for buying a home on Rhode Island’s Watch Hill, other than it’s a beautiful 11,000 square foot beachfront mansion overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The house cost Taylor $17.8 million and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Lady Gaga – $22.5 Million
If you’ve ever enjoyed any of the beaches around the Malibu area of Southern California, then you certainly know that the Zuma Beach is an absolutely immaculate creation. This didn’t go unnoticed by singer Lady Gaga, who bought a home directly above it.
The pop star has lived in her Malibu mansion since 2014 when she bought it for $22.5 million. The home features an open floor plan, exposed wood beams, and rustic aesthetics. Lady Gaga is clearly gaga for the place, and has called it her “Gypsy Palace.”
Eddie Murphy – $35 Million
Apparently, not all the land in Beverly Hills has been developed because in 2001 Eddie Murphy decided to buy 3.7 acres of land and build himself a home. The land alone came a price tag of 10 million, but it came with neighbors such as Denzel Washington and Rod Stewart, so you can’t really complain too much.
Lord knows how much the 40,000-foot mansion cost to build, but it’s a stunning home that was built at some point in the 19th century Classical Italianate style. It even has a guest house that’s certainly bigger than most of the homes in your neighborhood.
Demi Moore – $75 Million
Almost all of the homes on this list are free-standing properties that aren’t attached to anything else. Not this one. Demi Moore bought this NYC penthouse apartment in 2015 for $75 million. It’s been dubbed a “floating mansion” due to its size and price tag.
The triplex penthouse has a space of 7,000 square feet, with 6 bedrooms and 5 ½ bathrooms. It also includes exquisite plaster ceiling molds, a fireplace accented with turquoise tile, and a 1,500 square foot terrace that wraps around the building’s top tower.
Justin Bieber – $25.8 Million
The Biebs and his new wife Hailey needed a place to call their own so they bought this beautiful $25.8 million mansion in the North LA neighborhood of Beverly Park. Not just anyone can get themselves into Beverly Park, so don’t expect to drive by and see Justin mowing the grass.
The Biebers managed to get incredibly lucky with this property. It had been on the market on and off for years and was originally listed at $42 million. They managed to buy it for a little more than half of that price. Maybe he isn’t all good looks, vocals, and dance moves after all?
Aaron Rodgers – $28 Million
You’d think that after winning multiple MVPs with the Packers that Rodgers would have the best house that Green Bay has to offer. Well, he might, but he also has a $28 million Malibu mansion that he purchased with ex-girlfriend Danica Patrick in 2019. Before that, the property was owned by singer Robbie Williams and even leased to Janet Jackson before that.
Naturally, the Malibu house is right on the beach and has an entertainment room with all glass doors. That makes it easy to transform the space from an indoor setting to an outdoor setting, which is ideal for Rodgers to enjoy the precious free time he has in the offseason.
Jennifer Aniston – $21 Million
Jennifer Aniston is one of Hollywood’s coolest leading ladies. Though she is certainly way wealthier than you will ever be, as well as better looking than you, she seems like she’d be really fun and down to Earth. Her home seems to be a good reflection of that personality.
While not small, Aniston’s Bel Air mansion is just 8,500 square feet. It was built in the 60s by famed architect A. Quincy Jones, known for his modernist designs. The home is minimalist in style inside and out and is completely surrounded by gardens and other greenery that helps keep energy in and stress out.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen – $29 Million
Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele are by no means a one-house family; the couple owns multiple properties. But it’s worth looking into the house they moved into when Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are actually renting it at a price of $75,000 per month from baseball great Derek Jeter, who built the mansion.
The house is 22,000 square feet on 1.25 acres of land and is located on the gorgeous Davis Island near downtown Tampa. The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion is located right on the water and comes with a theater, full-service bar, a boat dock, and an 80-foot lap pool. Now that Brady has announced his retirement from the NFL, the question is if he’ll stay in Tampa Bay, and this dream home.
Kylie Jenner – $16 Million
One of the world’s youngest billionaires, Kylie Jenner, is probably someone that would have an opulent mansion to spend her days in, right? While the “self-made” part of her net worth topic is one that’s up for debate, the opulence of her home certainly is not.
Kylie lives in a beautiful 13,200 square foot mansion in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. This home cost her $16 million, which is double what she paid for her two other houses. That’s right, Kylie already owns two other homes in the LA area and they cost $6 million and $8 million each.
Clint Eastwood – $9.75 Million
One could assume Clint Eastwood’s home was inspired by many of his film roles. The man who is known for starring in numerous western movies where his character traveled the on horseback lives in a Hacienda-style home that allows nature to actually come inside.
The Spanish mission-style home that is in Pebble Beach, California has adobe walls, a terracotta tiled roof, and beautiful Spanish wooden doors. In true “Hacienda” fashion, the home is built around a central fountain, which sounds like it would be pretty relaxing.
Tiger Woods – $40 Million
Tiger Woods, once the world’s most valuable athlete, has his own little oasis in Jupiter, Florida. The famous golfer’s impressive mansion is located right on the beach, has two separate pools, a boat slip, and obviously, it has a private golf course.
The home cost Woods $40 million back in 2006 and is pretty much all a guy like Tiger could ever ask for. Sun, sand, golf, and 9,000 square feet of some nice luxurious Florida living. But one question is, does he have a guy to keep the alligators away, though?
Britney Spears – $3 Million
Here’s another reminder that not all the mansions on this list are in LA. In her heart, Britney Spears is just a down-home Louisiana girl. When it came time for Britney to splash the cash on a mega-mansion, she didn’t go for the bright lights of Los Angeles.
She ended up going home to Louisiana, where she could be herself. The house set her back $3 million in the year 1999, but it’s very far away from TMZ’s cameras so it may have been worth it. Her sister Jamie Lynn lives there now, which is a pretty sweet deal.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith – $42 Million
While some of the homes are understated, others are pretty ostentatious. You would need a map with a “You Are Here” sticker when visiting Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s home. The Smith home is located in Calabasas, California, and sits on 150 acres of land.
The “home” itself totals 25,000 square feet and took seven years to finish. With a house this big, the Smiths drew inspiration from multiple regions. If you ever get to visit you’ll notice themes of Asia, the Mediterranean, and Africa. The front door was salvaged from a fort in India.
Jake Paul – $20 Million
In 2021, Jake Paul and his brother Logan both spent more than $20 million on a pair of penthouses in the E11even Residences Beyond tower in Miami. Each condo that the Paul brothers bought in the 65-story hotel and residence skyscraper has three bedrooms and its own plunge pool.
The E11even Residences Beyond tower is located in downtown Miami and comes with ridiculous amenities for its residents, including a casino, a spa, and a rooftop area that is bound to have amazing views when the building is completed. The starting price for condos in the building is $300,000, so one can only imagine what a $20 million condo will look like.
Ariana Grande – $13.7 Million
Ariana Grande lives atop the Sunset Strip in a neighborhood called Bird Streets. Now you might be wondering how the neighborhood got its name. No, it isn’t because there are an abundance of birds living there, it’s because all the streets are named after birds.
AG’s place is in the heart of the neighborhood that’s getting increasingly crowded with celebrities. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Jodie Foster, and Keanu Reeves all live on an avian named road in Los Angeles. Ariana’s place cost her a cool $13.7 million.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel – Price Unknown
Celebrities often move around, buying and selling properties like they were trading in a used car. But that’s not Justin Timberlake’s style. He bought this Mulholland Drive mansion from actress Helen Hunt in 2002 and has been there for 20 years now.
The occupancy has since grown as he’s welcomed his wife, Jessica Biel, and their two children. The house is 12,000 square feet and has 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. There’s even a sprawling guesthouse on the property. Recently, Timberlake added a full-size basketball court, a putting green, and a swimming pool.
Elon Musk – $23 Million
Elon Musk is a skilled businessman in many facets and industries; real estate being one of them. In December of 2021, the world’s richest man sold his last remaining home, a 47-acre estate in Hillsborough, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area for $30 million.
Musk had bought the house in 2017 at a little over $23 million from Christian de Guigne IV, who had reportedly owned the property since the 1860s. The Tesla and SpaceX tycoon has previously said that he wants to sell most of his possessions to fund a colony on Mars.
Pete Davidson – $1.2 Million
Obviously, celebrities aren’t lining up to live on Staten Island, but that’s where Davidson grew up, so that’s the place he continues to call home. After all, he did star in “The King of Staten Island.” To his credit, he probably lives in the nicest place Staten Island has to offer.
Davidson’s condo cost $1.2 million and has just two bedrooms. However, it has an open floor plan and is located close to the water with brilliant views of Manhattan. There are high ceilings, tons of natural light, and a waterfall installation. If nothing else, it seemed to impress Kim Kardashian, who reportedly visited soon after Davidson bought it in December 2021.
Mel Gibson – $30 Million
Mel Gibson has homes all over the world at this world. That’s the perks of being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars of all time. This home, his Costa Rican estate that is called Playa Barrigona, is without a doubt the most lavish. It’s 500 acres in size that includes 2 miles of beachfront.
Essentially, the Braveheart star has his own private jungle and as much beach as a man could want. The property also happens to include three houses. The main home has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and balconies overlooking a courtyard pool.
Jennifer Lopez – $28 Million
Jennifer Lopez’s home is as incredible as she is talented. Lopez’s home was built in the 1940s by famed designer Samuel Marz and features nine bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms. The home has floor-to-ceiling windows, its own pub, and a 30-seat movie theater.
One person who you will not be seeing at J-Lo’s home is her former fiancé Alex Rodriguez after they decided to split up in April of 2021. They lasted longer than anyone else has been able to stand being with the former baseball superstar. Most recently, J-Lo has gotten back together with old flame, actor Ben Affleck.
Miley Cyrus – $5.8 Million
Miley Cyrus may have hopped off a plane at LAX with her dreams and her cardigan, but her home is in Nashville, Tennessee. But like in Los Angeles, even modest homes in Nashville are big and expensive. The reason is pretty simple – it’s the home of country music!
The former Disney channel star’s home is a modern 7,000 square-foot farmhouse. It has a pretty modest 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It’s the perfect place for Miley to entertain and relax when she’s not swinging back and forth on wrecking balls. It cost her $5.8 million.
Whoopi Goldberg – $28 Million
Whoopi Goldberg’s home in the Pacific Palisades district of Los Angeles was built in 1933, and she owned it from 1993 until its $8.8 million dollar sale in 2019. Situated on 0.67 acres, the property features lush landscaping that flanks a 7,000-square-foot home. The house has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and lots of living space across its two stories.
Goldberg is one of only 15 people in history to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, a grand slam of awards commonly referred to as the EGOT. She’s been a host on “The View” since 2007, and came under intense backlash in 2022 for making insensitive remarks. This led to her temporary suspension from the show, followed by a hiatus through early May 2022.
Mark Wahlberg – $13.95 Million
It shouldn’t come to as a surprise to you that Mark Wahlberg has done alright for himself. Ok, that’s a bit of an understatement. Mark Wahlberg is one of the planet’s biggest movie stars, so of course, he has a 30,000 square foot mansion in Beverly Hills.
The huge home was designed by famous LA designer Richard Landry and has 11 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms. It’s designed in a classic French estate style and features and pool, spa, and full-size basketball court. Want to practice your golf game? It’s got a putting green too.
Howard Stern – $52 Million
It may come as no surprise to you that being the king of mass media pays pretty well. Howard Stern is the dominant radio personality of the 21st century and has a big enough following to parlay his mature radio show fame into gigs on network television.
So naturally, he’s going to have a mansion that is fit for a king. Very little is known about the inside of the home, but the outside is sweet enough. Stern’s Floridian paradise has multiple buildings, pools, and even has an oceanfront view, though everyone else will have to guess what is inside.
Cooper Kupp – $4.1 Million
Cooper Kupp was never projected to be a star in the NFL, but he did have a phenomenal 2021 season, that ended with a Super Bowl MVP award and Super Bowl ring. He has made good use of his money, spending over $6 million on two homes, including his primary residence in Westlake Village, California, a 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean style that cost $4.1 million.
While it looks great from the outside, it doesn’t even compare to the inside, starting with a twin staircase in the foyer. There are high ceilings in the dining room, a classy billiards room, and a chef’s kitchen. Also, since it’s Southern California, there’s a pool out back and an outdoor (cut-covered) living room with a fireplace.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen – $17.5 Million
Is there a more couple with more star-power than John Legend and Chrissy Teigen? Legend himself has an EGOT, having won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards, and Teigen is a model and master of social media. With their powers combined, they must make their Beverly Hills neighbors jealous.
Their $17.5 million mansion comes complete with a home theater, an infinity pool, and a wine cellar. The home is over 10,000 square feet and has 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. That’s certainly a lot of toilets to have to scrub, but they probably have help for that.
Jeff Bezos – $165 Million
The richest man on this list, and nearly one of the wealthiest in world, has the most expensive home on the list. Bezos’ Beverly Hills mansion cost a residential real estate record price of $165 million. Sure that’s nothing for a man worth an estimated $177 billion.
Bezos bought what’s known as the Warner Estate from media tycoon David Geffen in February of 2020. If the home looks familiar, that’s because it should be. The property was the television home of the Clampett family on the Beverly Hillbillies in the 1960s.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi – Price Unknown
Legend has it that when Ellen DeGeneres was growing up the family was too poor to own their own home, and was always renting. When she earned her fame and wealth, buying homes became a bit of an obsession for DeGeneres, who is now on her seventh home.
She and her wife, Portia De Rossi have great taste and a passion for interior design. This home, pictured here, has 5 bedrooms and more bathrooms than a couple could use in a week. That being said, the home has terrific natural light and is really comfortable.
Lil Wayne – $10 Million
Lil Wayne just sold this house a few years ago, but the place is a doozy so we have to show it to you. There’s nowhere to start but with the shark pool that’s built in. That’s right; the home comes with a pool of sharks. There’s also a separate shark-less pool for humans to enjoy.
The home recently sold for $10 million, which was a good deal considering it was listed for $12 million. The property includes a rooftop skate park, a movie theater, a recording studio, and even a private dock. What would a waterfront Miami Beach property be without a private dock?
Harry Styles – $4.9 Million
Unfortunately, Harry Styles no longer owns this impressive plot of land in Los Angeles. Styles sold this home in 2019 for $4.9 million. It would be interesting to know how much the value of the house went up just because the realtor was able to say “Harry Styles lived here.”
The former One Direction frontman, who is a native of England, now owns just three homes. Incredibly, all three are actually in England. Considering, it’s not that big of a country, you’d think he’d want to spread them out a bit more. But to each his own.
Joe Burrow – Price Unknown
There’s no shame in living with your parents; even NFL quarterbacks do it. At the time he was the no. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft in 2020, Joe Burrow was still living with his parents in Athens, Ohio, with his dad being the longtime defensive coordinator at the University of Ohio.
The kicker is that Cincinnati is only a couple of hours from his hometown, so he didn’t have to move far when the Bengals drafted him. When he signed his NFL contract for $36 million, the young QB’s dad joked that “we finally got him outta our basement.” Burrow, who came back from injury to make the Super Bowl in 2021, has said he’s planning to live off his endorsements and keep his NFL salary in the bank, so don’t expect him to move into a palatial estate anytime soon.
Rihanna – $22 Million
Nearly a decade ago when Rihanna returned to her native Barbados for the holidays, she decided to give this huge home a test drive. She would rent it out for the festive season and fell in love with the property. A mere $22 million later and the home was all hers.
The question you’re likely asking is, what was her current home in Barbados like if she needed to rent out a mansion for the holidays? Either way, she won’t need that home anymore as she’s living large in this estate, which has five-bedrooms overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Bill Gates – $123 Million
You might think Bill Gates is a stuffy computer nerd who gets more excited about code than real-life things. Maybe you’ve seen that old grainy video of him dancing on stage at a Microsoft launch. Well, try this on for size, Bill Gates has a 200-foot trampoline room in his house.
That’s really cool, but the rest of his house is pretty great too. The Medina, Washington mansion is 66,000 square feet and took seven years to build. The house cost $63 million to build but is now worth $123 million. That’s the kind of business sense you’d expect from a guy like Bill Gates.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union – $6.2 Million
We have plenty of details about the home Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union bought because it went back on the market in 2021. The couple purchased their Sherman Oaks, California home for around $6 million in 2018, but had an initial asking price of $6.2 million.
They ended up selling it for $5.5 million, a little more than half a million than they bought it for. The Mediterranean style home has a 180-degree view of the San Fernando Valley and includes 5 bedrooms, and a stunning circular staircase right down the middle of the home. Take a look at Zillow and see what else it has to offer.
Jerry Seinfeld – Price Unknown
What’s the deal with this huge house?! Forgive us for the joke, but there is actually something special about this house. Seinfeld’s Long Island, New York mansion wasn’t his originally. He bought it in 2000 from its original owner, Long Island’s own Billy Joel.
The house is a monster that sits on 12 acres, has two pools, and a 22-car garage, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. The home includes a three-bedroom guesthouse. What touches has Seinfeld put on the property? Well, the lifelong Mets fan installed a regulation baseball diamond on the property, as well.
Hayden Panettiere – $3.07 Million
Full disclosure that this is actress Hayden Panettiere’s former home in the Hollywood Hills. Before she needed to move to Nashville, Tennessee to star in the drama series Nashville, she lived in this mansion. It’s a 3,120 square-foot, 3-bedroom abode.
What the home lacks in size it makes up for in amenities. Panettiere’s home has a state-of-the-art kitchen, a stunning pool, and decks that give relaxers a wonderful view of the city. Her former next-door neighbors were Drew Barrymore, and Slash from the band Guns N’ Roses.
Matthew Stafford – $19.6 Million
New LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford paid $19.6 million for a Southern California mansion that wasn’t even built yet. The home is in Hidden Hills, California, which is well-known for being filled with the rich and famous, including members of the Kardashian family. With having won the Super Bowl in his first year in LA, it’s safe to say, he’ll be sticking around for the long haul.
Stafford’s new home apparently sits on two acres of property and is around 15,000 square feet. There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as a home theater, library, fitness center, and massage room. The massive house even has two temperature-controlled wine cellars since everyone knows red wine and white wine can’t be stored at the same temperature.
The Weeknd – $18.2 Million
Stop on by this Hidden Hills neighborhood home in Los Angeles where it’s always the weekend. Please excuse the bad joke and take a look at the property that singer The Weeknd used to call home. The former Super Bowl performer bought the 12,500 square-foot home back in 2017.
The Weeknd paid a cool $18.2 million for the home. But in 2021, he actually sold it to another former Super Bowl entertainer. In the spring of 2021, Madonna ended up buying the property for $19.3 million, and considering he initially listed it for $25 million, she may have gotten a good deal. The house has a garage full of luxury cars, and a basketball court.
Ed Sheeran – Price Unknown
Ed Sheeran’s home may look modest given his fame, but rest assured that’s exactly what he wants. Sheeran purchased the property in 2012 in his native country of England. It comes complete with everything one of the world’s most famous bachelors could want.
Just some of the amenities that his place include a gym, a pool, obviously a recording studio, and even a 26-foot-tall treehouse. There’s also an outdoor kitchen and even a man cave. However, if you’re a single man living alone, isn’t your entire home your man cave?
Dr. Dre – $40 Million
Here’s another home with famous provenance. Dr. Dre, one of the GOATs of the rap game, bought this house from another GOAT, Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundchen. The estate cost Dre a cool $40 million. That’s probably why those Beats headphones cost so much.
The home has 5 bedrooms, an infinity pool with a poolside cabana, an outdoor kitchen, and a bathtub. And if you’re worried about being invaded by a neighboring tribe, the home comes with a moat. Yes, a real moat. No word yet on whether it’s filled with alligators.
Gwen Stefani – $15.5 Million
Gwen Stefani purchased her home from Jennifer Lopez. So, the musical talent that has lain their heads on their pillows in this house is pretty astounding. “The Summit,” as it’s known, has six bedrooms, including a master suite with two separate master bathrooms.
The home also happens to have 5 fireplaces, a guesthouse, an infinity pool, an outdoor kitchen, and a tennis court with lights. But what’s the the crown jewel of this awesome estate, you ask? Having fresh eggs every morning from the onsite chicken coop.
Sting – Price Unknown
If there’s one place you’d want to live in Manhattan, it’s in an apartment overlooking Central Park, right? Well, if you’re Sting the answer is definitely yes. He and his wife Trudi Styler own this magnificent apartment. Floor-to-ceiling windows in every room bring the lights of the city inside and provide stunning views of the park.
An open fireplace accents the living room, and a double sculptural spiral staircase makes going upstairs and down an elegant experience. The building the apartment is in features a pool, fitness center, a movie theater, and a private restaurant just for residents.
Jack Nicholson – Price Unknown
Jack Nicholson has been in Hollywood for a long time. Like a really long time. As in, six decades at this point. He’s been a showbiz staple for so long that he’s owned four properties on Mulholland Drive, and the one he bought from Marlon Brando was demolished years ago.
This property here he’s owned since July 1969. The home is 3,303 square feet and has a pool. If those walls could talk. But back to Jack’s other homes. He used to own a home on Mulholland that had an underground tunnel that led directly to Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé – $88 Million
Jay-Z and Beyoncé are still relatively new neighbors in their Bel-Air neighborhood. The power couple bought their 30,000 square-foot mansion in 2017 for $88 million, which would be a ton for most of us, but it’s simply a drop in the bucket for these two moguls.
This place has a plethora of patios and terraces overlooking the city, four, count ‘em, four swimming pools, a spa, and a wellness facility, and is actually made up of 6 buildings altogether. And for one of the OG’s of rap, the home comes with bulletproof glass windows and walls…just in case.
Aaron Spelling – $160 Million
Even if you don’t know the late Aaron Spelling by name, you know his work. He was a legendary Hollywood producer responsible for Charlie’s Angels, Beverly Hills, 90210, and Charmed, just to name a few. But just as famous in Hollywood is his home, the Spelling Manor.
Spelling knocked down Bing Crosby’s old mansion to build his 56,000 square foot, 123-room home. It’s commonly acknowledged to be the largest home in Los Angeles County. This estate has four rooms for gift wrapping, a humidity-controlled room for storing silver, and many rooms to display his wife’s collections.
Greta Thunberg – Unknown
An outspoken climate activist, Greta Thunberg is most known for her speech at the Global Climate Summit in 2019. She became famous for scolding world leaders for their lack of effort and support to curb climate change.
At only 19 years old, Greta has an estimated net worth of $1 million. She lives a very quiet life and just last year she moved out of her parent’s home. She lives in Stockholm, Sweden with her two dogs.
Oprah – $50 Million
No woman has achieved more in this country than Oprah. She’s become the queen of television and the queen of our hearts. Who doesn’t love Oprah? Maybe not her groundskeeper. Oprah lives on a 70-acre estate called, the “Promised Land.” That’s a lot of shrubs.
The property includes a rose garden, as well as multiple terraces, and fountains. The house is a 23,000-square-foot-home built in the neo-Georgian style. The home that was purchased for $50 million in 2001 is located in Montecito, California and is now worth over $100 million.
Denzel Washington – $2.6 Million
Denzel Washington’s mansion would be better described as a complex rather than a home. The do-it-all Hollywood star owns this home off Mulholland Drive between Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. Though just 1.5 acres, Washington has gotten incredibly good bang for his buck.
The accomplished actor bought the home back in 1992 from former Disney CEO Michael Eisner. The complex contains manicured lawns that would make the Palace of Versailles jealous, an enclosed tennis court (because runaway balls are a way to ruin an afternoon), and a breezy pool area. Must be nice.
Dan Bilzerian – $80 Million
Dan Bilzerian isn’t a celebrity in the same way that others on this list are, who have become famous through more traditional means from the entertainment industry. He’s known exclusively in the world of Instagram, but has nearly no fame outside of the social media platform.
He made his fortune playing poker and parlayed that into an extravagant lifestyle. And his home is just as big as his lifestyle. This thing is 31,000 square feet, has 12 bedroom suites, 23 bathrooms, and 40,000 square feet of patio space. It set Bilzerian back a cool $80 million when he bought it.
Joel Osteen – $10.5 Million
Joel Osteen, one of America’s most famous preachers and best-selling authors, lives a life a bit differently than some of the characters in the Bible. Osteen, who sermonizes out of a 600,000-square-foot megachurch in Houston, calls this $10.5 million mansion in Houston his home.
The enormous estate has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, five separate fireplaces, and three elevators. Yes, three. Honestly, if your home ends up needing three elevators, it’s probably too big. The mansion also happens to come with a large pool and a guesthouse.
Sean Hannity – Price Unknown
Sean Hannity is known for being one of Fox News’ biggest stars, drawing millions of eyeballs as an anchor every night as he defends the conservative right of American politics. He’s been handsomely rewarded for his work on the popular network, too.
Hannity owns two different homes, one in Nassau County, New York, and one that’s in Palm Beach, Florida. Hannity’s New York home is a majestic mansion, built in 2002, and features seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and a total of 11,400 square feet of living space.
Tucker Carlson – $2 Million
Another Fox News’ pundit that lives well is Tucker Carlson. He is insistent on having his finger on the pulse of Washington politics so he can inform his fans of the goings-on in “The Swamp.” As such, Carlson finds it important to live in said swamp.
He lives in a $2 million colonial home in Washington, D.C. Carlson’s residence has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. The house has a two-car garage and a suite set aside for his au pair. Carlson has four children, so having the live-in nanny certainly comes in handy.
Laura Ingraham – $3.3 Million
Laura Ingraham traded the gilded suburbs of Connecticut for the glistening suburbs of Washington, D.C. when her career took her to the nation’s capital. Ingraham bought a massive 7,869 square-foot-home in Mclean, VA, which lies just outside the District.
Her home has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and sits on 2.1 acres of land. Ingraham purchased it for $1.6 million, and it is currently valued at $3.3 million. That’s a pretty sweet chunk of change that the Fox News anchor would make if she decided to move right now.
Ira Rennert – $100 Million
If you don’t know one name on this list it might be Ira Rennert’s. But he’s a billionaire businessman from New York City. Rennert got his start on Wall Street in the 1950s and did a lot of things that are honestly too complicated to explain to earn his wealth.
Whatever it is he did worked out as he was able to build a 63 acre compound in the Hamptons that cost roughly $100 million. It’s so big that it angered the locals. One even wrote a book entitled, “The House That Ate the Hamptons.” It has between 21-29 bedrooms and up to possibly 39 bathrooms. That’s outrageous.
Patrick Mahomes – $1.9 Million
A giant contract typically means a giant house, although even before Mahomes signed a contract extension in 2020 worth a total of $503 million, he purchased a $1.9 million home in 2019. The house is only three bedrooms, which seems somewhat modest for such a big star.
Nevertheless, the home is in a gated community and comes with smart home technology. There is also a chef’s kitchen and wet bar. The house is also surrounded by green space and trees while also letting in plenty of natural light. Mahomes’ home also comes with a wine cellar and a walk-in closet that could pass for a large home office.
Nick Saban – $11 Million
As far as we can tell, Nick Saban is one of the richest people in Alabama, at least until some of his players get more of that NIL money. At the same time, it’s tough to envision him relaxing at his beautiful lakefront home in Tuscaloosa. However, it’s hard not to feel relaxed just looking at pictures of the rustic home.
The three-story home has six bedrooms, a boathouse, a wine cellar, and a billiards room that looks straight out of an upscale pub. It sits on 1.7 acres and includes 700 feet of private lakefront property. It also has enough room to host the entire Alabama football team for a meal if Saban were ever so inclined.
Cardi B and Offset – $5.8 Million
With all the LA-based homes on this list, you could forget that other parts of the country have their share of wealthy stars as well. Atlanta is no exception, and this mansion owned by rappers Cardi B and Offset is a perfect example of a celebrity home outside of California.
The couple bought this 22,000 square foot mansion in Atlanta for $5.8 million in the year 2019. It’s got classic European architecture inside and out. The home is on a six-acre property that includes manicured gardens, rolling lawns, and a four-car garage.
Mark Zuckerberg – $7 Million
When you look at how cool Mark Zuckerberg’s home is, remember he got all of this by reconnecting you with your long-lost high school classmates and then tracking your every digital move on the Internet. With that said, respect to Zuckerberg for going a different direction with his mansion.
Instead of building a state-of-the-art, brand-new mega-mansion, Zuckerberg went with an older home built that was built in 1903, which only cost him $7 million. For a guy worth $97 billion, he probably could have found $7 million in change in his couch cushions.
Sean Connery – $45.7 Million
Of course, the man who was the original man to play James Bond wouldn’t lie in just any old slum. Sean Connery laid his head to rest at night in a luxurious mansion that was on the French Riviera. It was a classic French home on an enormous 24-acre plot of land.
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Connery’s estate featured an underground fitness center, two guest houses, and an indoor pool. Since Connery’s death in 2020, the home has gone up for sale. Living the lifestyle of 007 will set you back at least a cool $45.7 million.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – $20 Million
The second member of the Kardashian family to appear on this list, it’s fair to say that this is the couple’s former home at this point. There were major headlines all over the news when this Hollywood power couple ended up splitting up following years of bizarre behavior from Kanye.
It’s still a compound worth showing, though. “Kimye” lived in a $20 million mansion in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. The grounds covered 3 acres, but that apparently wasn’t enough for the couple as they bought the neighboring properties as well.
