Let's play celebrity "Six Degrees of Housing Separation." It's a game where in a tight housing market, agents throw in every celebrity name in the refrigerator vegetable bin and hope it results in a soup that buyers can't resist.
So to that end, we have a pretty adorable house in Studio City, Calif., that, according to the MLS, was once owned by Academy Award-winning actress-activist-exercise guru Jane Fonda and is now owned by Ethan Suplee, the guy who played Randy, the buffoon-like baby brother on "My Name is Earl." Listing price: $2.295 million for the 3,787-square-foot home built in 1951.
He purchased the home for $2 million in 2006, according to public records.
The seven-bedroom home
sits on almost an acre and has multiple family rooms, lots of light and a rustic feel. There is a detached guest house/office. And it, of course, has this Hollywood connection thing going for it.
Hanoi Jane -- a term I use with great respect and mostly because the Occupy Wall Street protesters bring up the inevitable comparison to the anti-Vietnam War marches in which she participated -- divorced CNN founder Ted Turner in 2001. In 2010 she decided to divorce Atlanta too, listing her 4,700-square-foot loft there at $4.5 million -- a price that was dropped to $1.95 million. The unit was leased briefly to Queen Latifah
and Fonda was last seen leasing a condo in Los Angeles where she planned to resume her acting career. But forever etched in our memory is Fonda's description of her Atlanta place: "To me it is a womb with a narrow birth channel and then you enter the wide open sunny loft to be reborn again."
As for the Studio City home where she once lived and that's now owned by Suplee, we're not seeing any wombs but perhaps you will.
