Celebrities are the most interesting people to follow. Not only are they usually the most creative and famous people in the world, but they often have the top things on the market as well—including houses. It makes sense that they would all have big and beautiful homes because they have the money, so why not splurge a little? There is a difference, though, between celebrities who are humble and live in ordinary-sized houses—of which there aren’t that many—and those who buy themselves big comfortable homes, and then those who purchase mansions and only have a small number of people living in them. This is a controversial subject because many people feel as though their money should go to more useful and helpful things, such as charities.
It’s important to remember that a good portion of celebrities do support a plethora of charities. They do all the hard work—for the most part—which gets them all this money, so why shouldn’t they be able to use it the way they please? The following is a list of those celebrities who are living in heaven with their huge five-story houses and those who live just like the rest of us.
25 Jennifer Aniston's Personal Touch
Some actresses leave their home decorations to the professional designers, but Jennifer Aniston is one that decided to design her own home.

McConaughey is popular for his extremely carefree attitude. Not only does the actor have a property with a beautiful home but he is passionate about his traveling Airstream. He has always enjoyed living in something that can drive for three reasons, as reported by Architectural Digest—those are: the ability to see the country, his love of driving, and to be able to catch up on listening to music. His Airstream has everything he could need, including a bed and a shower, and the views changes every single day, which he loves. He hasn’t spent much time in the Airstream since becoming a father, but he will never entirely give up this lifestyle.

The most refreshing aspect of her home by far is the lap pool in her backyard, which is surrounded by a beautiful patio and plenty of shade under the trees.

The actress seems extremely comfortable in every picture; whether she is lounging in her beautiful and open house or cooking up a storm on Thanksgiving day, she has a home worth showing the world.
19 Celine Dion's Jupiter Island Estate Was Out Of This World
The singer doesn’t own this specific estate any longer, but it says something that she did at one point. In Florida, Celine Dion once owned a five-acre property that consisted of a whopping 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. The number of rooms isn’t even the most impressive part of this house, according to Town & Country Magazine; the singer had a water park built into the property that also overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Her estate was worth quite a lot and sold for a whopping $38.5 million when she put it up for sale last year.
18 Kris Jenner And The Infamous Custom Closet
Kris Jenner probably is the celebrity with the most well-known home, given that it is so often featured on her reality television show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Interestingly enough we don’t know much about this house other than what we have seen live on E! One of those rooms often featured on TV is Kris’ massive walk-in closet. According to InStyle, this room was specially designed by Kris, and it is her favorite room.
17 Ronda Rousey's Old Place Is Lous(e)y
One might assume that issues like burglary and vandalism come with the territory when your umm—territory—looks like this. Ronda Rousey rose to fame quickly as a leader in the ring, not only among women in the WWE, but men, too. She's since moved up in rank and found herself to be more comfortable in a far more luxurious home, but it wasn't long ago at all that she was lamenting over being victimized at her Venice Beach home, pictured here, the New Daily reports.
16 Ellen DeGeneres' View From The Top
The popular comedian and talk show host has been in a few different homes, with the most recent purchase being a $15 million home in California. The impressive part about this house is the view. The property is so high that anyone standing on the patio can see almost the entire city, which makes for a magical night relaxing outside for both Ellen and her wife Portia. According to Today, the outside features may be better than the inside with an outdoor kitchen, the view, and the fire pit. The house is a very open and inviting space, which is why Ellen and her wife fell in love with it so quickly.

When the two moved in together, they got a simple home that was hidden away so they could have their privacy. The house only has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, which as we can imagine is pretty small for any celebrity.

According to the pictures shown on Lonny, the house was always set up like a mysterious jungle, and it was unique.
14 Miley Cyrus' Upscale Tennessee Mansion

13 Audrey Hepburn Did It In Style
Although she is no longer with us, her house is still one of the most beautiful homes in existence. For a house that was built in 1938, it is pretty well put together. The 1.1-acre property included five and a half bedrooms, a private tennis court and a guest house. This may seem not nearly as big as other celebrity houses, but it is important to remember that this house was inhabited in the ’40s or ’50s until she passed on in the early ’90s. According to Elle Decor, the house included a beautiful pool as well as a fully stocked library.

8 Judd Apatow's Wave-Side Siestas
Owning a beach house is one of the coolest things in the world. Being able to wake up and go to sleep every night to the sound of the waves and being so close to the beach sounds so relaxing.

The bedroom is full of windows looking out into the ocean, and the home even has a couple beautifully put-together stained glass windows. According to Architectural Digest, there are too many beach views to count from this lovely house.
7 Katherine Heigl Likes Ranch Living

One of those homes is a ranch that is hidden in the mountains, and according to Today, most celebrities that buy ranches do so just to have them, not because they actually want to do any work. But according to Katherine Heigl, she and her husband love the ranch lifestyle and everything about it.

Clooney is one of the last celebrities on this list with more than one beautiful home. He and his wife Amal recently bought a $10 million house in which they plan to raise their twins.
