In our last installment of Celebrity Housefax: Oscars Edition, we feature the one and only, Jeff Bridges. Beloved as The Dude in “the Big Lebowski” and bestowed with an Oscar for his role in “Crazy Heart,” Bridges and his wife, Susan, recently listed this spectacular property for a cool $18.5M.
Working Title Films
Bridges (who received a 7th Oscar nomination this year for his role in “Hell or High Water”) and Susan have called this oasis home since 1994. In a Wall Street Journal interview, Susan shared her husband’s love of the property’s aloe trees and his “fort,” which she described as “a quiet spot with a hammock, swings and benches, where he occasionally makes pottery.”
Born and raised in Alabama, Octavia Spencer landed her first acting role while working behind the scenes of 1996’s “A Time to Kill.” She then moved to Los Angeles where she landed small parts in films and on television. In 2011, her career reached new heights with the hit dramatic film “The Help”, which earned her an Academy Award. This year she’s nominated for her role as NASA mathematician Dorothy Vaughan in the inspiring film, “Hidden Figures.”
Octavia Spencer, Academy Awards, 2012
In 2013, Spencer bought a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Toluca Lake, California, for $841,500 (a steal for Los Angeles real estate).
While modest in size, the 1927 Spanish-style home is filled with character — from dark hardwood floors and plantation shutters to vintage tiles and original fixtures. The property is also in a great location: a block and a half from Toluca Lake boutiques and restaurants on Riverside Drive.
Some amenities of Octavia Spencer’s California home include:
As a nod to Oscar week, we take a peek inside the home of Oscar-winner Goldie Hawn and longtime partner, Kurt Russell. Together since 1983, we fell in love with these two in the quirky rom-com, “Overboard.” A red-carpet staple, they share four children between them and two Oscar nominations for Hawn, who won Best Supporting Actress in 1970.

Recently, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell sold their home in Pacific Palisades for $6.9 million after listing it last year at $7.25 million. Hawn, who returns to the silver screen for the first time in 15 years with Amy Schumer in the comedy “Snatched,” and Russell, who co-stars in the spring action-thriller “The Fate of the Furious,” purchased the property in 2004 for a bit less than $4.12 million.
