Celebrity Home Addresses
No matter where the stars go, you can be sure that the paparazzi are always close by. Invasion of privacy has always been a heavy price to pay for fame and fortune, but some people just go too far. As portrayed accurately in the movie The Bling Ring, celebrity home addresses are incredibly easy to look up on the Internet. Moreover, homes of the stars are always on the agenda for any tourist group. Just how can you tell when enough is enough?
Who wouldn’t want to stalk an Oscar-winning actress? Sandra Bullock bought an impressive gothic Victorian mansion back in 2009 in New Orleans for 2.5 million dollars. The property has 5 bedrooms and measures 6,615 square feet. All was well and good for this second home, until a crazed stalker broke into one of her houses in June. Joshua Corbett has a very unhealthy obsession with the Gravity star because he entered her Beverly Hills mansion despite the fences measuring twelve feet along with barbed wires and high quality surveillance. The stalker was caught making loud noises in her living room in the middle of the night, and he had a notebook with magazine cutouts of her, complete with creepy handwritten notes that said horrific things such as “I will forever be thinking of you and Louis, my son, as you are my wife by law, the law of God and you belong to me and me to you.” How can anyone sleep at night after an ordeal like that?

Back in 2008 to 2009, a group of wannabe socialite teenagers broke into stars’ homes by looking up celebrity home addresses on the Internet. This was turned into a movie titled the Bling Ring, and the teenagers stole more than 3 million dollars’ worth of goods. One of the houses that were targeted was Paris Hilton’s Beverly Hills palace. Worth 5.9 million dollars, the house basically screams Paris Hilton, from the pictures of the Eiffel Tower down to a monogrammed pink surfboard with her name. She even has throw pillows with her own face splashed out front. She allowed The Bling Ring director Sofia Coppola to film in the actual areas of her house where the theft was committed. “I’m not a confrontational person. But I would literally be like, ‘You guys need serious help. And I want my stuff back,”‘ Paris said.
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
Another victim of The Bling Ring burglars, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr had their house on the map for tour buses every single day. There is no privacy when it comes to celebrity home addresses, and so the couple decided to rent it out after the theft. The ¾-acre compound is located in the Hollywood Hills Outpost Estates and is worth around 18 thousand dollars monthly. Still, despite their best efforts to go under the radar, they end up with even more publicity because of all these events. Privacy lawyer Neville Johnson says it’s called the “Streisand effect.” When will the public give these stars a break?
