Where the stars live in Beverly Hills, you will find all kinds of incredible shopping like that of Rodeo Drive, you have some of the fanciest and most famous hotels that boast visits from the biggest celebrities in the world.
Back in the day, it was Walt Disneys, Frank Sinatras, Marlon Brandos playground. More recently it was Jack Nicholson and Lucille Ball. These days it’s Justin Bieber and Hailey, Kendall Jenner, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. Beverly Hills will forever be the epitome of celebrity.
Do Celebrities Live in Hollywood?
No, Virginia. Celebrities do not live in Hollywood proper. Most celebrities live just outside of Hollywood in Beverly Hills or Bel Air or even further out in gated communities like Calabasas and Santa Monica, or oceanfront communities like Venice Beach and Malibu.
However, there are some celebrities who live in West Hollywood and Hollywood Hills. These aren’t technically Hollywood but they do contain the word. So…sort of Hollywood.
One of the reasons people get confused about celebrities living in Hollywood is because of the stigma of “Hollywood.” The glits and glam of the movie star life, right!? Not so much. Hollywood was once the mecca of studios – and there are still studios in Hollywood – but they are not concentrated there anymore. Hollywood is an awesome spot for tourists, but celebrities and locals tend to live in areas around Hollywood.
So, now the goal is to find these Hollywood Celebrity homes. Map them out in all of the aforementioned areas in Los Angeles and surrounding areas…and you are on your way. Why not start with a tour of the studios? It’s a good addition to any celebrity hunt.
The most popular is Universal Studios. How far is Universal Studios from Beverly Hills, you ask? A very short 7.7 miles and should take you about 30 minutes, depending on traffic. Not so bad, right!?
To pack the most celebrity punch, your best bet is to look at the general areas of your favorite stars. For example, the Velvet Ropes app will let you know that Simon Cowell lives in Beverly Hills near Sunset Boulevard. Imagine, seeing the actual state of the man who created so many pop stars. It’s worth a look!
Where do Celebrities Live in Hollywood Hills?
Hollywood Hills is a beautiful part of Los Angeles as it’s part of the Santa Monica Mountains – beautiful! The hills also stretch waaaaay inland towards Burbank. It’s a mountain ridge that basically separates what we locals call “the valley” and the rest of Los Angeles. Grand estates with incredible views abound all over and it is home to one of the most well-known streets in Los Angeles, Mulholland Drive.
So, who lives on Mulholland Drive? Katy Perry, Jennifer Lawrence, and Adele live very close to it. Madonna used to as did John Lennon, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis when they were together. The always awesome and never forgotten Molly Ringwald also lives near there.
Speaking of Santa Monica. Do you remember the Eagles’ song, “Hotel California?”
Where is the Hotel California?
Ahh, Hotel California. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave. So the Eagles say, but the hotel itself will tell you that leaving is not a problem, it’s just that you might not want to.
The famous hotel is at 1670 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401 and it is in a very scenic area right next to the water. It’s a great place to stay if you are wanting to do celebrity tours because it puts you in the right mindset and you are in a more centralized area to see celebrity houses in Malibu, the gated communities of Santa Monica and Calabasas and then just a short drive to Beverly Hills.
Hotel California rooms start at $239. With a charming courtyard and “beachy” rooms, the song doesn’t lie when it says it is such a lovely place. A perfect way to start your celebrity tour vacation.
But it must be said – there are many other hotels that, uh, are much nicer. 😉
