Celebrities love to share with other celebs. They share, agents and wedding planners, hairdressers and clothing stylists, sometimes, they even share their significant others and celebrity mansions…But that’s a whole other story. So when it comes to their multi-million dollar homes, it’s no wonder that when one big name celeb puts their mansion on the market, another A-lister snaps it up in a jiffy.
Here are 10 celebrity mansions and the A-listers who have previously owned them.
10. Ginnifer Goodwin Buys Hollywood Bungalow from Busy Phillips Fro $1.1 Million
Once Upon A Time, (seven years ago to be exact) actress Ginnifer Goodwin purchased Cougar Town cast mate Busy Philipps’ century-old Hollywood home. The two-bedroom bungalow in the Whitley Heights area of the Hollywood Hills must be a hot commodity – previous owners included A-listers Rachel Bilson andRose McGowan and talk about charm – funny man Charlie Chaplin once lived in the neighbourhood.
At just over 2000-square-feet, the modest, Spanish-style casa includes three beds and baths, an outdoor spa, and a rooftop patio with gorgeous city and mountain views. Ginny and her on-screen and real life Prince Charming, Josh Dallas must be busy baby proofing their abode – the couple’s first child is due any day now.
9. Selena Gomez Buys Jonah Hill’s LA Home For $2.2 Million
When Selena Gomez bought The Wolf of Wall Street actor Jonah Hill’s 7000-square-foot Tarzana celebrity mansions in 2012, she was just a hop, skip and a jump away from pop sensation boyfriend, Justin Bieber‘s Calabasas mansion. My how things change. Selena and the Biebs are no longer together, and she has since sold the Tarzana property and moved into Justin’s old Calabasas stomping grounds to be closer to her new besties,Kendall and Kylie Jenner. But then she got the rumour mill buzzing when she promptly unfollowed the sisters on Instagram…but back to the house. Selena’s former mansion is truly celeb-worthy. Amenities include a basketball court, tennis court, private gym and massive pool. Looks like the songstress will make a pretty profit on the sprawling property, as she recently listed it for a cool $3.5 million.
