We’d advise that you hold onto your seat, these Hollywood mega-mansions are likely going to blow you away with their price tag. Are you ready? Let’s begin!

Ellen DeGeneres – $45 Million

You don’t become one of the most likable entertainers in Hollywood without getting paid for it. Ellen’s mansion in California is as beautiful as it is expensive. Known as The Villa, this property has a price tag of nearly $45 million attached to it. The Villa is modernized but it still retains a sense of classic decor.

Barbara Walters – Undisclosed

Barbara Walters is a media icon, and she has certainly been paid handsomely for it. Walters got started in the industry back in 1953, and she would go on to host a variety of high profile programs, including The View, ABC Evening News, and Today. Walters may have retired in 2016, but the award-winning entertainer is still living like royalty in her New York City-based property. While there is no public price for this mansion, we can only guess that it includes several commas.

Marilyn Monroe – $90K

Despite her relatively short career, Marilyn Monroe is the kind of famous that will never require a celebrity. The former Hollywood icon made her home in a ritzy neighborhood in Brentwood, California.  While Marilyn only lived at this gorgeous estate for six months, she certainly made it her own. The price of this luxurious mansion has conflicting reports, but most numbers point to the fact that Marilyn spent roughly $90K on the property back in the 50s.

Mark Harmon – $9 Million

From the gridiron to the small screen, Mark Harmon has left his mark on the entertainment world. The former actor and collegiate athlete lives in this spectacular mansion in Malibu. We wouldn’t blame Harmon if he never left the property. Would you? The tall ceilings, Olympic swimming pool, and Romanesque statues all work together to create a beautiful piece of property.

Cheryl Tiegs – $12 Million

Who doesn’t want to live pretty in Los Angeles? Cheryl Tiegs lives in a beautiful property in Los Angeles that is as fashionable as it is immaculate. This property was most recently listed for a smooth price tag of $12 million.  You’ll be able to find your way to a private guesthouse, a giant fountain, and a hand-painted tin ceiling.

Hayden Panettiere – $2.1 Million

Hayden Panettiere may stand at only 5′ tall, but her mansion certainly leaves an impression! Panettiere lives in a musical-themed home in Nashville and the property is filled with predictable charm.

Christina Brinkley may live on Long Island, but she certainly has brought some Los Angeles flair to her home. This $30 million mansion features nine bedrooms, an elaborate entrance, and a pristine yard. Brinkley has flip-flopped several times on her decision to sell the property.

Ozzy Osbourne – $10 Million

Ozzy might be the Prince of Darkness, but he sure lives like a clean-cut celebrity. Ozzy’s $10 million dollar home in California is filled with the kind of upscale decoration that only interior designers could put together.

Diane Keaton is an Academy Award-winning actress, and she is certainly living like one! Keaton’s farmhouse in Los Angeles has over 8,000 square feet of coverage. Keaton spent more than $1.5 million dollars on redesigning the property. Stark colors and contrasting lines work to showcase Keaton’s own impeccable taste.

Brooke Shields – $4.55 Million

There’s an old joke that claims a million bucks in New York will get you a closet. Well, for Brooke Shields, $4.55 million seems to have gotten here more than a couple of closets. The Pretty Baby star has grown into an amazing investor and celebrated performer. Her Greenwich Village townhouse is just as beautiful as you’d imagine.

Miley Cyrus – $2.5 Million

When Miley isn’t rotating personas in front of the camera, the 24-year-old star is enjoying her time as a young real estate investor. Cyrus has a beautiful 2-bedroom home in Malibu that seems as austere as it is lush. With a couple of acres of gorgeous land, Cyrus is set up for some cozy time at home.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – $4 Million

Dwayne Johnson is one of the hardest-working celebrities on the planet. With that being said, you can tell that he loves his time at home.

Celine Dion – $65 Million

Celine Dion lives a hop and a skip down the street from Dwayne Johnson in her own Floridian mansion. This absurdly large property looks fit for a king. With a resort-sized swimming pool and 10,000 square feet of land, we bet that Celine Dion hears her own echo wherever she goes. Dion is worth almost $400 million dollars, so what’s a $65 million dollar mansion to her bottom line?

Danica Patrick – $4 Million

As one of the most famous female drivers in professional racing history, it only makes sense that Danica was paid handsomely for her work. Patrick is officially retired and enjoying her life in her own Scottsdale home. This property has a wine cellar, a giant breakfast bar, and more. Danica calls the property her own, ‘Jetson House’.

Matt Lauer – $5.8 Million

Kelly Ripa worked hard in order to become one of the most decorated TV hosts in entertainment history.

We guess that never skipping a day of work can pay off in the long run. Who would have thought?

Clint Eastwood – $145 Million

When Clint Eastwood isn’t directing Oscar-nominated films or talking to empty chairs on stage, he’s relaxing in his home in Carmel. Mission Ranch sits between the Carmel River and the Pacific Ocean. No matter where you look, you get an incredible view of the natural world around you. We wonder what unreleased films Eastwood has penned on the property.

Corey Harrison – $2.4 Million

Corey Harrison is one of the stars of the ensemble reality show, Pawn Stars. Known for cutting deals and maximizing profit, Harrison certainly got his money’s worth from this Las Vegas property. The house is located in the valley and is probably filled with an amazing collection of antiques.

Sean Connery – $1 Million

Sean Connery is one of the most decorated performers in Hollywood history. Despite his impact on American pop-culture, Connery looks to Ireland to spend time at home. This beautiful building is set deep in the heart of Ireland’s lush greenery. We’re sure that Connery enjoys the quiet life of retirement, away from SNL parodies of his voice.

Ron Howard – $27.5 Million

At over 100 years old, Douglas knows that he wants to live his life in style. His mansion features a massive pool, a cozy fireplace, and more than $3.45 million dollars worth of property.

Bruce Willis – $33 Million

We always wondered why Bruce Willis appeared in so many straight-to-DVD movies of late. Of course, he needs the extra cash to pay the mortgage on his $33 million dollar home in Turks and Caicos. This unreal looking property is almost too much. With the most impressive pool we’ve ever seen, it’d be hard to get us to leave home. The estate also has a private oceanfront beach, a resort, and a private movie theater.

Kathie Lee Gifford – $10.5 Million

Kathie Lee Gifford has been a household name for decades. Even after retiring in 2019, she’s still finding time to put out new work. When she’s not writing books or making an appearance on camera, Gifford is enjoying time in her massive home in the Florida Keys. This mansion has eight bedrooms, a deck, and a private gym. For just $10.5 million dollars, you too can have your own 11,400 square foot mansion.

While Murphy’s star has seemingly faded over time, he has never stopped being a bankable asset. Known more for his work in the 80s, 90s, and early 00s, Murphy has been living it up at his home in the Hollywood Hills. This property looks like a resort and it has all the amenities that you’d expect of one. We’re sure that Shrek had a big part in paying for this beautiful home.

Samuel L. Jackson – $13 Million

When Samuel L. Jackson isn’t putting together the Avengers as Nick Fury, he’s spending time in his classy New York loft. Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Jackson has owned the property since 2005. Jackson purchased the property in order to renovate it. If y ou want to live where the Captain Marvel star called home for over a decade, you only need $13 million bucks. Maybe we could all chip in?

Movies Create More Pet Problems Than Help

Mackenzie Freeman



When Disney released the second installment of Nemo storyline with Finding Dory kids flocked to the theaters and the toy stores to see and grab their favorite forgetful fish. Voiced by Ellen Degeneres in both films, Dory endeared herself to kids and their parents so much, many wanted to have their own pet version of Dory, specifically a Blue Tang. However, like so many other movies before, Finding Dory set off a red alert for conservationists who saw the same problem record playing all over again, just with another animal species favorite du jour.

First, Blue Tangs are very inhospitable to captivity and do not breed, which would otherwise produce a farm grown population that could satisfy the pet industry demand for them. Second, that means what Blue Tangs are provided as pets are literally captured from the sea as wild specimens from their natural environment. Third, the same in turn has huge implications because in practice pet-loving humans literally become a collective predator through the pet supply chain, reducing the wild population dramatically and suddenly.

The Dory demand is not the first time a fish or other animal has seen a run on the natural population, affecting eco-systems in the wild. When the first movie, Finding Nemo, was released, the main character’s fish, the Clown Fish, skyrocketed in home aquarium pet demand by 40 percent. As soon as they left the theater, everyone wanted their own Clown Fish. The harvesting from the wild was so bad, the fish just about started to disappear from its natural regions in the waters off of Indonesia and the Philippines. And all of it was driven by a cartoon movie and massive consumerism in the U.S. which practically sends ripple effect across international markets as a result.

And fish are not exclusive in the movie-driven eco-damage. The Harry Potter film franchise has done its damage as well, specifically hunting for pet owls. An unreasonable number of Potter fans insisted on trying to get their own pet owl after the movies became extremely popular. And, like so many non-normal pets, people realized they aren’t soft and cuddly. Owls have razor sharp claws, they smell quite a bit, and they can bite viciously. Most of these owls had been captive-bred so there was no possibility they could be returned to the wild once they became unwanted.

Disney again triggered and earlier run on a specific animal when it re-released the 101 Dalmatians story in a mid-1990s movie. Now most folks would assume dogs should be just fine; they’re man’s best friend. However, the Dalmatian breed is a fussy one, packed with a lot of high-strung energy and needing regular exercise. Add to the mix, they don’t do well with small kids. Soon after the movie’s pet rush, Dalmatians began to spike in dog shelters and dog rescues as many of them were given up as unwanted and their true nature was realized months after previous Christmas.

Whether its mini-turtles due to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies and related salmonella sickness in kids, or “Dory” Blue Tangs, people need to teach their children and their wallets to refrain from running out and getting the next pet fad. It’s costing needless loss of animal lives and frustration. If you want a pet that will likely love your family, try pet adoption first. Give a lonely animal that can be is ready to be a pet a second chance instead and leave Nemo and Dory in the sea.
