Three years after stealing the screen as a charismatic leading man in movies like Thelma & Louise, Pitt paid $1.7 million for a Los Feliz mansion, purchased directly from Cassandra Peterson, better known by her alter ego, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. In the following years, the actor took over two adjoining properties to expand the complex and then bought two others after he married his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, in 2005.

Shortly after marrying Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt spent $4 million on a 11-acre oceanfront vacation property near Santa Barbara. The house, located near Gaviota State Park, is still in his possession today. When he and Jolie were together, they used it as a vacation retreat for themselves and the children, riding horses and enjoying time on the beach.
When Aniston and Pitt bought their main marital home together, they opted for an impressive 1,040-square-meter mansion designed by Wallace Neff. The couple spent three years renovating the residence French Norman style, originally built in 1934 for actor Fredric March and his wife Florence Eldridge. Upgrades included heated marble floors, a bar with wooden floors from a 200-year-old French chateau, and a brand-new projection room. When the couple split in 2005, he put the property on the market, eventually selling it for $28 million the following year.

Apparently, the architecture buff spent millions renovating the property from 1962 before putting it up for sale in early 2009. His colleague Ellen DeGeneres bought it for $12 million in 2011 and sold it a year later for a $1 million profit.
