Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are looking for a new house and are said to be eyeing on Brad Pitt’s Malibu mansion.
Ellen DeGeneres, 53, just put her $49million Beverly Hills compound up for sale and is now looking for something smaller.
Sources told People Magazine, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, 38, are very interested in buying Brad Pitt’s $14million Malibu home.
Brad Pitt’s Malibu property consists of two separate houses, a pool, a tennis court and expansive lush gardens.
The sprawling 4,100 square foot property also has private beach access and is set back off the Pacific Coast Highway by a long private driveway.
The main house has four bedrooms and four baths, a large chefs kitchen with stainless steel appliances, bamboo floors, three fire places and a top of the range security system.
The house has had extensive renovations in the past couple of years with an additional story added by the environmentally conscious designer Christopher R. Sorensen.
Malibu mansion is just one part of a property portfolio belonging to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that also includes homes in Los Angeles, New Orleans, France and Italy.
No one knows why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have chosen to sell the property, which is set into a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Reese Witherspoon, 35, was spotted looking at the home this past summer.
But in the end, she and her new husband, Jim Toth, decided not to buy it.
While the home is pricey, even by Hollywood standards, the $14million price tag is certainly no problem for Ellen DeGeneres.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi is said to have a net worth of about $85million.
Forbes Magazine recently listed Ellen DeGeneres as one of the wealthiest women in Hollywood.
According to Reuters, last year alone Ellen DeGeneres made $45million thanks to her syndicated talk show and endorsement deals, including a contract with Covergirl Cosmetics.
Ellen DeGeneres got her start as a stand-up comedienne and has appeared in a number of films including EDtv and The Love Letter.
The comedienne also provided the voice of Dory in the Disney-Pixar animated film Finding Nemo and was a judge on American Idol for one year, having joined the show in its ninth season.
Portia de Rossi, a native of Australia, most recently co-starred on the TV series Better Off Ted and she also earns a sizeable income.
