Angelina Jolie is a citizen of the world in more than one way. The Hollywood icon has long been active in humanitarian efforts around the world and has even served as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Refugee Agency. She has adopted children from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam and has traveled the world to advocate for the rights of families who have had to flee their homes in Iraq, Thailand, Sierra Leone and other countries. Jolie has also owned properties all over the world, including in Cambodia, her son Maddox’s native country, and in the south of France, where she and ex Brad Pitt previously co-owned a winery, Château Miraval. Angeleno native has also owned a handful of residences scattered across the states, as well as several notable rental properties that the actor and her offspring lived in while she or Pitt filmed in places like London and Long Island, New York . Here we share a glimpse of some of its best-known homes.
Jolie had already made a name for herself in Hollywood with the 1999 hit Girl interrupted when she married Billy Bob Thornton in May 2000. Several months later, they paid $3.75 million for an 11,000-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills that was previously owned by Slash of Guns N’ Roses. “We’re pretty spontaneous people,” Thornton said. Weekly Entertainment at the time. “We saw this house and we said, ‘Okay, we’ll take that one.’ » » The sprawling residence included nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a home recording studio, a library, a gym, a swimming pool and a bathroom. tennis court. According to Thornton, one of Jolie’s favorite features was that there was a kitchen in the room. “You can watch TV (in bed) all day and then walk a meter to the kitchen,” he said. The couple divorced after three years, and Thornton eventually sold the house nearly a decade later for $8 million.
Jolie adopted her eldest son, Maddox, from Cambodia in 2002, and the following year she purchased a traditional house in the Cambodian countryside for an undisclosed amount. She hoped the house would give Maddox a chance to stay connected to his Cambodian culture and also serve as a home base for his work as an environmental advocate there (she founded the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation that same year ). Jolie also reportedly purchased the surrounding more than 148,000 acres and turned it into a wildlife preserve. In 2019, she shared a rare glimpse of her stunning residence while filming a commercial for Guerlain’s new fragrance, Mon Guerlain. The advertisement’s shots reveal a wooden longhouse with a traditional straw roof, wood-panelled and beamed interiors and lots of rattan furniture. Jolie still owns this property.
Jolie met Pitt on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004. The couple purchased property in New Orleans’ French Quarter for $3.5 million a few years later. (At the time, both men were focused on charity work in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.) The traditional-style brick house was built in the 1830s and retains much of its original details. origin, including Venetian plaster walls and custom marble mantels. , and original crown moldings. The mansion measured 7,650 square feet and included five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, with a two-story guest house. After their separation in 2016, they sold the property for $4.9 million.
A year after purchasing their New Orleans home, Jolie and Pitt purchased an apartment in the historic Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. It is unclear how much the two men paid for their accommodation, which they reportedly chose for its enhanced security. Sources told ABC News that the Waldorf offered private entrances and separate elevators for its distinguished residents, meaning Pitt and Jolie could come and go without having to interact with other guests in the main lobby. The hotel’s location was also ideal, given that it was down the street from the United Nations, where Jolie was a goodwill ambassador at the time.
While Jolie was filming Salt, In her 2010 spy thriller, she and Pitt rented a 47-acre waterfront estate on Long Island, also known as The Sassafras, for an undisclosed monthly fee. (For reference, the rental was listed for $55 million in 2017.) The sprawling Tudor Revival estate included a 20,000-square-foot, 25-room main house with a 48-foot cathedral ceiling in the entryway, a grand foyer, a formal dining room and an enclosed outdoor veranda. The land also had two guest houses, a log “tea house” with water views, and amenities like a hair salon, spa, and fallout shelter. The couple and their children had direct access to the sound, with a pier that could accommodate an 80-foot yacht, a 24-foot sailboat, a 30-foot speedboat, and more, according to the listing.
Jolie and Pitt have set their sights abroad for their next home, the infamous Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. The couple initially rented the lavish estate before paying $60 million for the château and winery, the latter of which was used to launch their eponymous wine brand. The couple married on the grounds in 2014, and Pitt is said to have reinvented parts of the 17th-century property by installing a spa, gym, home theater, indoor and outdoor pools, arcade, off-road motorcycle course and even a helicopter pad. Jolie reportedly had a 200-year-old olive tree moved to the 1,200-acre estate in 2010. Things deteriorated after the couple divorced in 2016, with Jolie selling her stake in the business, a move that sparked legal proceedings in course. argument between the two men. Pitt currently still owns this residence and worked with French producer Damien Quintard in 2021 to restore a recording studio on the grounds.
Just before Jolie and Pitt’s marriage collapsed, the entire Jolie-Pitt family was living in a $21,000-a-month rental in Surrey, just outside of London, while Pitt filmed his zombie blockbuster. War machine. The eight-bedroom mansion was located along the River Thames and included an indoor swimming pool and gym, as well as a room dedicated to snooker (a game similar to billiards). The three-acre expanse would also be just a 35-minute boat ride from the nine-bedroom home of Pitt’s good friend George Clooney. A source said Us every week at the time that “(The family likes) that there are toy shops in town and that it’s not far from central London. There’s also this peaceful, leafy suburban vibe.
In June of that year, the couple reportedly paid $2.8 million for a villa on the Spanish island of Mallorca, where Pitt had filmed scenes for Ally. The warm-weather getaway had eight bedrooms and reportedly included a pool overlooking the Balearic Sea. It is not known if any of them still own this house.
Later in 2016, shortly after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, she reportedly began renting a house in Hidden Hills, California, for $30,000 a month. The residence, listed by owner Denise Richards for $7.3 million in January, included six bedrooms and six full and two half bathrooms spread across 8,300 square feet. Jolie and her six children stayed there indefinitely, likely enjoying the lagoon-style pool with several waterfalls and a grotto with a fire pit.
The following year, Jolie made headlines when she paid $24.5 million for a large compound in Los Feliz that was previously owned by legendary actor Cecil B. DeMille. “I wanted it to be close to their father, who is only five minutes away,” Jolie told British News. Vogue in March 2021. “What I like most is that there is no entertainment room, but many paths and places to walk and think. I feel very lucky that we have this right now. The 11,000 square foot Beaux Arts mansion features six bedrooms, ten bathrooms and a swimming pool. Jolie also shared that there was a trampoline on site, a much-needed stress reliever during difficult times. “The other day we were on the trampoline and the kids said, ‘No, mom, don’t do that.’ You will get hurt. And I thought, God, isn’t that funny. There was a time when I was an action star, and now kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I’ll hurt myself. This remains Jolie’s primary residence.
Angelina Jolie announced a new business, Atelier Jolie, in summer 2023, with a former studio once owned by Andy Warhol and rented by iconic street artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The actor reportedly signed an eight-year lease on the 6,600-square-foot space, perhaps best known for its graffiti-covered storefront and history of hosting famous designers. “(Jolie) loved the facade of the building and the fact that it was labeled with street art as a memorial to Basquiat,” Garrett Kelly, principal at Meridian Capital Group, which held the listing, told ArtNews. The space will serve as a socially conscious fashion studio intended to provide a workplace for underserved tailors and artisans, with proposed gallery space and a cafe run in partnership with refugee organizations. And it’s possible that Jolie is looking for a more permanent home base in New York to help bring her vision to life — the multi-faceted woman was spotted looking at apartments with her children Pax and Zahara in July.
