It’s not just Sir Anthony who wants to go home
Despite a comfortable LA lifestyle and a multi-million pound home in the beachside haven of Malibu, it seems Sir Anthony Hopkins is yearning for the small semi in Wales where he was born.
The Oscar-winning star of The Silence of the Lambs and his wife Stella (and two bodyguards) surprised Chris Trainor and Carly Culver recently, when they stopped by their Port Talbot home, right, and asked to look around. Stella surprised them even more when she suggested that her husband might be interested in buying the place.
And it seems that Sir Anthony is not, however, the only actor to want to reconnect with his roots.
In 2003, the actress Kate Hudson with her then-husband Chris Robinson bought the palatial Pacific Palisades home that had once belonged to her mother Goldie Hawn and her step-father Kurt Russell.
Evidently one who is fond of staying close to home, last year Hudson and present partner Matt Bellamy, frontman of the band Muse, bought the house next door.
In nearby Topanga, California, Joshua Jackson, one of the stars of TV’s Dawson’s Creek, was reported to have bought his the home where he grew up.
When the childhood homes of the rich and famous come up for sale they are often the subject of much attention.
In 2011 the pretty, four-bedroomed house in Berkshire where Kate Middleton lived until she was 12, sold for £485,000, despite the potential allure of the royal connection, the final bid was £10,000 less than the original price.
The Dunblane home where Tennis champion Andy Murray grew up did slightly better, after his mother Judy sold it for £600,000 last year, as she moved to a larger, grander place three miles away.
