In researching and collecting information
from celebrities for our book the
Celebrity Almanac we have discovered some funny
and interesting addresses of stars in relationship to their
names or something they have done that has made them famous.
To protect each celebrity's privacy only the street, road or
city has been revealed. So sit back and enjoy.
Did you know that former presidential
candidate Gary Hart, who had to quit the race because
of the "Monkey Business" scandal with Donna Rice actually
lived on Troublesome Gulch Road. Maybe that should
have been his first clue? How about this one. Actor
George C. Scott who played the hard driving Gen. George
S. Patton lives on Retreat Court. Now thatís hard to
believe, but itís true. Former basketball great Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar who towers at 7 feet 3 inches lives on
Summitridge Drive. Seems appropriate to us. The
Late actor Lloyd Bridges who starred in the
television series "Sea Hunt" didnít move far from the set of
the show, he lived on Pacific Coast Highway. His
actor son Jeff Bridges must have a great reputation
in the bedroom because he lives on Hot Springs Road.
Know what I mean? Hereís an oxymoron. United States Senator
Dale Bumpers lives on Honesty Way. Ya, right,
but tis true, tis true. Another famous politician, Ted
Kennedy actually has a residence in Virginia located on,
are you ready for this one-Chain Bridge Road. No
guilty conscience here. Michael Jordan, point guard
of the World Champion Bulls, conveniently lives on Point
Lane. Like in point guard, like in drive the lane-get
the idea? Barry Manilow known for being a great
composer and pianist lives on where else, Beethoven
Street. Makes sense to us but Pamela Anderson
also lives on the same street. Go figure. Tennis star
Tracy Austin who has been at the top of her game as the
number one seed, lives coincidentally on Pinnacle Drive.
Pretty clever. Another tennis great Andre Agassi
lives on his namesake Andre Drive. We wonder if he
will soon be adding Brooke Court to complete the
perfect address? Go for it Andre! Indy 500 multiple winner
Mario Andretti lives appropriately on Victory Lane.
Now thatís a real winner! Hereís an interesting phenomenon,
singer/actor Frankie Avalon famous for summer beach
movies has gone and done the opposite. He lives on Spring
Forest Lane. However, his beautiful co-star Annette
Funicello at least tried, she lives on Sandy Lane.
Alec Baldwin must have a big reputation to live up to
with his wife Kim Basinger, unfortunately for
him they live on Don Juan Place. Talk about hot fun
in the summertime. On a similar note, actress Valerie
Bertinelli has had her hands full with hubby rocker
Eddie Van Halen and his wandering eye. Perhaps Valerie
should consider moving away from Broad Beach Road
where they live? Just trying to be helpful. Actress Gale
Storm of "My Little Margie" fame keeps our streak alive.
She lives on Seacliff Drive. We love ya for that
Gale. Hereís three interesting ones: Johnny Rivers,
Carrie Fisher and Charlton Heston all live on
Coldwater Canyon Road. Rivers, Fisher and parting the
Red Sea-are you on board with this one yet? Actors
Timothy Bottoms and Joyce Bulifant have something
in common. Tim lives on Hot Springs Road and Joyce
lives on Red Tail Court-OUCH? The latest Batman
heart-throb, George Clooney doesnít live on bat cave
drive but he does live on Lookout Mountain Road.
Probably helps him see big bucks coming his way. Here are a
few more stars who donít seem to live where they should.
Former Harlem Globetrotter, Meadowlark Lemon doesnít
live on Meadowlark Lane but country songstress
Lacy J. Dalton does. Comedic legend Bob Hope
doesnít live on Bob Hope Drive but funny guy Will
Smith of "Fresh Prince" fame does. So does best-selling
author Danielle Steel. Baseball star Pete Rose
doesnít live on Rose Avenue but actor Peter Coyote
does. Comedian Chevy Chase doesnít live on Chevy
Chase Drive but comedian Jack Carter and actor
John Schneider do. Jackie Cooper doesnít live on
Cooper Street but television actor Chris Burke,
Corky of "Life Goes On" does. And finally, Fats Domino
who found his thrill on "Blueberry Hill" doesnít live on
Hilltop Road but Chubby Checker another rock and
roll idol does. Now thatís a real twist! Even though we
donít consider Amy Fisher (the Long Island Lolita) a
star, we had to point out the irony in her address for you.
Sheís doing serious time at a facility located on State
School Road. Wonder if sheís learned her lesson? Actor
Marlon Brando should consider changing homes with
Elizabeth Taylor-he lives on Weddington Street.
Well, Liz has had a ton-a-weddings. We thought Sylvester
Stallone was the Italian Stallion but NFL studly
quarterback Dan Marino lays claim to that, because he
really lives on Stallion Lane. No horsing around
here. We wonder if actor Don Johnson is trying to
forget about former wife Melanie Griffith? He lives
on Heather Road. Maybe his neighbor actor James
Spader can set him up with Heather Locklear?
Hereís another good one. Millionaire jokester and
presidential candidate Ross Perot lives on
Lakeside Square. No kidding! Golfer Fred
Couples lives on Greensboro Drive. Getting
the swing of this? Speaking of great golfers, Tiger Woods
should check out actor Tony Franciosaís place
because Tony lives on Tigertail Road. However, Tiger
did pretty good, he lives on Teakwood Street.
Close enough for a gimme here! Peanuts cartoon creator
Charles Schultz lives a dogs life on 1 Snoopy Place.
The late Col. Tom Parker, Elvisí manager didnít have
far to go to get into heaven. He lived at the Hilton Hotel
in Las Vegas which is conveniently located on Paradise
Road. Speaking of heavenly bodies, Burt Reynolds
who has been acting like heís on another planet after his
breakup with Lonie Anderson lives curiously on Jupiter
Farms Road. Far out. And speaking of planets, astronaut
Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon,
lives on Columbus Ave. A street named after
another guy who laid claim to doing something first.
Finally, after all our research we were disappointed that
not one actor who has ever played Tarzan actually
lived in Tarzana, California.
