We all know what the majority of celebrity houses look like – luxurious and larger-than-life. Most celebrities who have earned a certain degree of success rake in millions for their movie roles, or hundreds of thousands per episode of their television series. With that kind of cash flow, it only makes sense that they can afford to splurge on houses with pools, countless bedrooms and bathrooms, and endless luxury features.
However, most celebrities aren’t born with a silver spoon. Yes, some come from wealthy families and never have to truly struggle, but those individuals are definitely the minority. The majority of celebrities were, once upon a time, just regular people from across North America who came to New York or Los Angeles to make it big. Many come with only a few dollars to their name and end up struggling for several years before getting their big break. Thus, they can’t afford nice digs when they’re first starting out – some can’t afford even the smallest studio solo. Some celebrities merely want some company when their star is rising, someone to navigate the world of Hollywood, so perhaps being roommates is more so about the camaraderie for them.
Whether having a roommate is a choice made out of necessity, or out of a desire to share one’s space in the intimidating world of Hollywood, one thing is for sure – many individuals who are now celebrities were roommates back in the day. Here are 10 celebrity roommates you may be surprised to know lived together once upon a time.
10 Lauren Graham and Connie Britton
9 Lindsay Lohan and Raven Symone
8 Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Downey Jr.
7 Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson
6 Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake
5 Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler
4 Jude Law and Ewan McGregor
3 Jonah Hill and Justin Long
2 Ali Larter and Amy Smart
1 Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito
While many celebrity roommates that surprise the most of us are more contemporary stars who were struggling to make it in Hollywood a decade or so ago, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito are a great throwback. Instead of trying to make it in Los Angeles, as most stars and starlets do now, Douglas and DeVito were in New York City. In the 1960s, when the duo were just starting out on their careers in the entertainment industry, they shared an apartment on West 89th Street. They’ve spoken about their former roommate status, with DeVito telling the New York Daily News that Douglas did the laundry, and Douglas stating that DeVito (while a great roommate) was a little messy.
