Celebrity homes are well designed and built to last a lifetime of stardom. The cliche “money is no object” is a true statement when an architect builds a dream house according to these owners’ specifications. How much space each celebrity feels is big or small enough for them to live comfortably is as different as how much they paid for their new property. Whoever is cleaning these magnificent estates is receiving a workout, for sure.
10. Will Smith
Will Smith and his family have a massive home tucked into the mountains of Calabasas, California worth an estimated $20 million. Throughout his career, Smith has been a rapper, a TV star, and an A-list movie star, having starred in many blockbuster films. Thanks to his massive success, he was able to purchase a 25,000 square foot home which provides his family with their own golf course, basketball court, swimming pool, screening room, meditation room, recording studio, and other luxuries.
Smith has come a long way since his days in the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” which debuted in 1990. Prior to his signing with NBC network to the hit sitcom, Smith was nearly bankrupt. Smith was called “the most powerful actor in Hollywood” in April 2007 by Newsweek. His awards include nominations for five Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and he has won four Grammy Awards.
Smith is the only actor in Hollywood to have eleven consecutive films gross over $150 internationally, $100 million in the domestic box office, and eight consecutive films in which he starred claiming the number one spot at the box office domestically. Forbes considers him to be the most bankable star worldwide. He received Best Actor Oscar nominations for his leading roles in ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ and ‘Ali’, and as of 2014, his films have totalled over $6.6 billion at the global box office.
