Imagine moving into your dream house. You have worked so hard and so long to achieve your dream of buying your dream home, and it's finally time to put finishing touches on your dream space! Your first experience as a homeowner happens when you pull up to your new pad, and you notice your new neighbors, and you're taken aback: your new neighbors look absolutely familiar because your new neighbors happen to have famous faces! The experience of living next door to a famous person is difficult to nail; you'll never be able to guess what kind of experiences you'll have, based on the celebrity hanging out on your property.
The fantasy of going next door to ask your neighbor to borrow a cup of sugar happens to be a reality for many, and believe it or not, there are many celebrities who live next door to their own famous friends! Have Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox ever reenacted famous scenes from Friends? We all know the Kardashians have featured a cast of famous characters come in and out of the house, but did Travis Barker ever let the Kardashian sisters preview brand new Blink-182 material? We're dying to know!
Celebrities make enough bank to gather many different houses in various parts of the world and they move around fairly often, but the stories of famous celebrities living next door to one another will live forever. Let's gather to witness the many celebs who stepped on each other's welcome mats!
19 Khloe, Kourtney, and Travis Barker
In a scene perfect for a film where the Kardashians are cast members, and there is a soundtrack featuring the classic Blink-182 song All The Small Things, pop culture fans find out Khloe and Kourtney are neighbors with Travis Barker, who played drums for the pop-punk band.
The rumor mill has been rampant with rumors that Khloe and Travis have been dating, but the truth surrounding the duo is that they are just neighbors!
InStyle revealed, "on this season of their E! reality show, the Blink-182 drummer stopped by Khloe's pad so his kids could play with Kourtney's little ones!"
18 Kendall Jenner and Jimmy Kimmel
The combination of a talk show host and one of the most famous women in popular culture today is a recipe for some awesome stories we'd love to be a fly on the wall for!
Our story involves Jimmy Kimmel and Kendall Jenner. The reality star has appeared on Kimmel's show before to dish about the close location of their famous digs!
In an interview from 2016, Kimmel notes that Kendall had just moved "directly across the street" from him, to which Kendall excitedly responds, "we're neighbors!" The two joked about Jenner causing a "ruckus" with her move. How neighborly!
17 Gwyneth Paltrow and Meryl Streep
Hollywood royalty have to find a place to relax and unwind after a long day, complete with a group of famous friends to hang out alongside.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Meryl Streep are two of the most famous actresses of all time, and it isn't unheard of for them to hang out with one another as neighbors.
E! Online reported Gwenyth was there for her friend during a time of "Turkey day" need. E! reported, "The lifestyle guru wasn't in New York City for the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday, so she let Meyrl borrow her kitchen when a cooking crisis struck!" Delicious!
16 Boy George and Sam Smith
Finding out legendary singers live next door to each other brings a very important question to the table; do Sam Smith and Culture Club singer Boy George open their windows and sing songs to one another?
Boy George was the 80's equivalent to Sam Smith. Both singers have legendary, era-defining voices! The singers are neighbors, which makes fans hope for a collaboration together!
Boy George won't be playing any 'crying games' over the pairing. He told The Sun, "He's bought the house next door to me in Hampstead. I saw him there the other day," as per The Washington Post.
15 Justin Bieber and Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard
As one of the most news-worthy celebrities of the last decade, there are many aspects of Justin Bieber to be curious about, including what it's like to reside near the pop star. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard know, and they received an ear-full!
Justin's presence in the neighborhood may or may not have anything to do with the increase of loud music in the neighborhood. Bell told People in an interview, "In his defense, I will say we don’t know the exact house the music is coming from, we just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring.”
14 Oprah and Rob Lowe
California is known for countless attractions and appealing sights to see, and none such sight is more unique than the idea of witnessing Oprah Winfrey and Rob Lowe together!
The two titans lived in the same neighborhood in California for a time; Montecino, to be exact! CNBC recently profiled Lowe's mansion when the actor announced plans to relocate. The lavish home features a home theater and eight bathrooms!
Judging by the number of celebs living in the same community (CNBC lists Drew Barrymore and Al Gore as residents), we wonder if Rob and Oprah co-hosted any dinner parties? Party time!
13 Keanu Reeves and Leonardo DiCaprio
Thinking about two of the biggest heartthrobs of the 1990's just got a little sweeter upon learning Leonardo DiCaprio and Keanu Reeves are next door neighbors!
The actors reside in the heart of Hollywood. StarMap reports their property is in the Hollywood Hills. Settling down in one place is reportedly a fairly new idea for Keanu; the actor "preferred to live in rental houses or hotels."
Keanu seems to have settled! Redfin reports Leo and Keanu have been living in the same area for a while; Leo has been in the area "since 1999, and Reeves moved in two years later."
12 Lance Bass, Katie Holmes, and Nick Jonas
The scenario of two favorite former boy band members and an actress from one of the biggest television series of all time living in the same apartment complex sounds like our middle school fan fiction, but it's real!
Nick Jonas and Lance Bass are the two former boy band-ers, and the actress is Katie Holmes. The trio separately decided to tackle the big city and they coincidentally ended up in the same apartment complex! According to E, "these stars were all in a New York state of mind when they rented apartments in the 21-floor, uber luxurious Chelsea Mercantile building."
11 Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox
I'll be there for you... forever!
Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have had plenty of time to sing the Friends theme song to one another over the years. The former co-stars, who spent ten years playing the iconic characters, Monica and Rachel on Friends, have remained close literally and figuratively!
The duo both headed for California in the 2000's and ended up living in the same neighborhood. The New York Post shared Aniston was "three doors away from her Friends co-star, and real-life best pal, Cox."
This sounds like the perfect idea for a Friends reboot! What would Ross say?
10 Kim, Kanye and Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin might be known for her brand of comedy, but it isn't so surprising that she has lived next door to reality TV's "first family" Kim Kardashian and Kanye West!
Griffin had nothing but praise when asked about her famous neighbors by Us Weekly. She said, "We are right next door, and I don't know if the karma is worse for them or me, but I have to admit that they're fantastic neighbors. They don't make noise, they have a ton of security … they're really fantastic neighbors!"
A "celebrity neighbors" reality show would be perfect for this trio!
9 Heather Locklear and Denise Richards
The scenario of Heather Locklear and Denise Richards living next door sounds like a plot from Melrose Place, but the situation didn't derive from pages of script!
In the mid-2000's, the two actresses had no chance of a friendship after Heather went through a divorce from her husband, Richie Sambora, only to discover Sambora and her former pal Denise, were an item!
It is safe to assume Heather and Denise stopped scheduling play dates for their children after the news broke. Heather had previously quipped to paparazzi that Denise was her "best friend" after her divorce from Richie. Ouch!
8 Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
It's no secret Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are among the closest friends in Hollywood, so the news of the duo being neighbors is even sweeter. There's a ton of humor between the pair, as seen in an interview with E!
Damon said, "Yeah, it's definitely not the life we had planned for ourselves in that way, It's great in a whole different way, like that Garth Brooks song, 'Thank God for Unanswered Prayers.' I never looked up at the sky and asked for this life and I'm very lucky that I got it."
What a friendship for the ages!
7 Janet Jackson and Bruce Willis
Superstar singer Janet Jackson once called a residence home affiliated with a media mogul and future leader of the free world. Jackson lived in New York City, and E! News revealed the singer shared some space with one of the biggest actors of all time, Bruce Willis, who of course is known for his hit action films!
E! reported Miss. Jackson "...listed her lavish crib to rent for 35,000 a month."
Bruce Willis began the dawn of the 2000's living in the same Tower, according to The New York Times.
6 John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, and Jimmy Kimmel
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are one of the biggest couples and celebrity dynamic duos of these times and as one of the biggest talk show hosts on TV, Jimmy Kimmel has access to some of the biggest stars of all time!
Kimmel has all of the access to the superstar couple he could want. The Krasinskis and the Kimmels are neighbors! The couples have plenty of fun together and enjoy lots of fun antics, as evidenced by an article from the Los Angeles Times, which detailed the couples' love for fun, making us wonder if the couples talk nonstop?
5 Miley Cyrus and Steve Carell
Michael Scott and Hannah Montana: neighbors? It's pretty funny to imagine the regular-teen-pop-star-by-night living next to the boss of Dunder Mifflin, but the actors behind the two iconic characters live close to one another, and the neighborly feelings might not be mutual.
Living around your neighbors isn't always a walk in the park, and Steve Carell just wants to look out for his younger neighbor, Miley Cyrus!
The pop star opened up to Rolling Stone and said, "He always gives me the stank-eye because I drive so fast."
Driving safety is important, so there's nothing but positivity between the neighbors!
4 Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, and Billy Corgan
Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan might not be welcomed to hang out with Rebecca Gayheart and her husband Eric Dane "tonight tonight!"
The former neighbors ran into some landscaping trouble into the early 2010's when one of Corgan's trees, unfortunately, did a number on Dane and Gayheart's property. According to E!, the couple wanted to take their rocker neighbor to court when "abnormally high winds caused a large eucalyptus tree on the rocker's property to fall on the couple's Beverly Hills home and apparently wreaked major damage."
The legendary rock star felt sorry for his blunder and apologized afterward!
3 Tracy Morgan and Sherri Shepard
Sherri Shepard and Tracy Morgan have been through a lot!
Ten years ago, Tracy had a mishap when a fire was started in the apartment complex he and Shepard lived in. According to Jezebel, "a lightbulb attached to one of Tracy's fish tanks burst. Tracy, his neighbor Sherri Shepherd, and all of the fish were uninjured."
Shepard forgave her neighbor, thankfully! She said, "she and her son are all fine, but the sprinklers flooded her apartment. Sherri says: "My son has lung issues, so I'm kind of concerned about that ... But I'm not pissed, I'm just glad everyone is okay."
2 Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley
Reading that Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant live next door to each other seems ultra confusing! The two very famous icons of the 1990's were once living in the same house together because they were once a couple.
The former couple has somehow found a way to co-exist with one another in a fashion that works for them. According to E!, the former flames know their situation is unique. Hurley said, "He's my next door neighbor, godfather of my son, and my best friend."
Hurley has also posted a sweet "Throwback Thursday" photo of the couple, too! Talk about harmony.
1 Jennifer Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis
When you think of power couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, and the equally hilarious actress Jennifer Lawrence, it's easy to imagine a lot of laughter going around! Turns out, Jennifer Lawrence lives very close to Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher!
There isn't much space between the couple and the actress, and it seems like it's a-okay with Mila and Ashton. Jennifer joked about living near the couple to Vanity Fair, she told the publication, "I've made friends with Mila and Ashton two doors down. They're awesome. I go over there uninvited. They're probably getting pretty sick of me."
