15 Celebs Who Bought Secluded Homes To Hide From The Public Eye

When it comes to celebrities, many people are under the assumption that they all live in big mansions in Hollywood or Beverly Hills. This is not the case with all celebrities, and while a lot of them do live in those cities, some have chosen not to. Some celebs live in areas that we've never even thought of.

You may be asking yourself, why would celebrities want to leave big, prominent cities? The simple reason is that not every celebrity enjoys living in Hollywood. Not every celebrity wants to see the paparazzi all the time, or have fans running up to them for selfies and autographs. These rich and famous people want their peace and quiet as much as anyone else.

Celebrities escape the extreme attention by living in places like Florida, Arizona or Texas. Other celebs don’t even live in the United States. Actors such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Kevin Spacey and Tina Turner, have taken themselves out of big cities to live in quieter areas out of the country. Read on to find out the 15 places celebrities live that you didn’t know about. Your city may be on the list.

1 Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Florida

After realizing that his football career wasn’t going to take off, Dwayne got involved with professional wrestling with his first fight against Brooklyn Brawler. Originally, he was signed to WWF with the name Flex Kavana before being named The Rock, a year later. Throughout his wrestling career, he won six WWF Heavyweight titles and five Tag Team Championships and became known as “The People’s Champ.” Some of his most popular catchphrases include: “Shut your mouth and know your roll”, “You want to go one on one with the great one” and “The Rock will take you down to Know Your Role Boulevard which is on the corner of Jabroni Drive and check you directly into the Smackdown Hotel.” Eventually, The Rock started his acting career and was met with a large amount of success. He first appeared on screen in the film Scorpion King, followed by The Mummy. He landed other roles in films such as Be Cool, The Game Plan, Hercules and Fast & Furious 6. The wrestler and actor purchased a secluded home in the Southwest Ranches of Fort Lauderdale for $5.5 million, which is also close to where his ex-wife and pro football player Brandon Marshall, live.
