Hollywood’s Stellar Neighborhoods There’s a phenomenon taking Hollywood by storm, and it’s not a new movie or television show. Instead, it’s a surge in celebrity neighbors, as many of Hollywood’s elite have become not only co-stars but also neighbors. Hollywood A-listers such as Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Oprah have chosen to live in glamorous neighborhoods away from the incessant attention of the paparazzi, creating their own star-studded oases.
Whether it be indulging in dinner parties or offering a helping hand during holiday seasons, these famous neighbors have created unique bonds in the exclusive enclaves they call home.
The Neighborly Stars of ‘Oppenheimer’ Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, the stars of Christopher Nolan’s war drama “Oppenheimer”, share more than just screen time. As it turns out, the two also share a residential building. In a recent chat with Fox News Digital, the duo revealed the joys and quirks of being co-stars turned neighbors.
Living in the same building has been a pleasure for both, leading to “fun dinner parties” as described by Blunt. The two, however, have drawn a line, deciding they would never read lines together off-screen.
Royal Neighbors: Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Oprah Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who decided to step down from their senior royal roles in 2020, have found refuge in the celebrity-infused neighborhood of Montecito, California. Surrounded by Hollywood’s elite, they have made friends with notable neighbors such as Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe, Katy Perry, and Chris Pratt. Oprah, in particular, has grown close to the couple, having been their interviewer of choice for a revealing conversation about their reasons for leaving their royal responsibilities.
Star-Studded Vacation Homes: Clooney and Crawford In Los Cabos, Mexico, Hollywood friends George Clooney, Cindy Crawford, and her husband Rande Gerber took the notion of neighborly friendship a step further. They decided to build neighboring vacation homes after being captivated by an oceanfront lot. Their houses are essentially used as one large home, where they host dinners and cocktail parties, epitomizing the concept of the “House of Friends”, a title they also adopted for their tequila brand.
Surprising Pop-Ins: Jennifer Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis Living in the luxurious neighborhood of Beverly Hills, Jennifer Lawrence has found joy in the proximity to her neighbors, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. The ‘Hunger Games’ star often shows up unannounced at their doorstep, affirming the close-knit bonds formed among these Hollywood elites.
A Neighborly Thanksgiving: Meryl Streep and Gwyneth Paltrow Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow lent Meryl Streep her oven for a special Thanksgiving meal, fostering a unique neighborly relationship. Even though Paltrow wasn’t home, Streep described the oven as the “best she has ever seen”.
Jocular Jibes and Sports: Adam Sandler and Conan O’Brien On the comedic side of Hollywood, Adam Sandler and Conan O’Brien, friends and neighbors, share a friendly rapport that extends beyond their professional ties. Sandler often yells “Coney!” outside O’Brien’s gate, and although invited in to watch sports, the “Grown Ups” star prefers not to overstay his welcome.
Hollywood’s trend of turning co-stars into neighbors has resulted in unique friendships, shared meals, and a sense of community, illustrating that even in the glittering spotlight of stardom, a neighborly bond can form and flourish.
