Gimme Shelter

$1,600,000

SOLD Ben Affleck’s 5 BR, 7 BTH manse to director/pal Kevin Smith

To make way for J. Lo, Affleck had to do some housecleaning. Enter Smith, who, after about a year of leasing, took the house off Affleck’s hands for a song. So how’d the Jersey Girl director get the 8,000-square-foot, four-story Hollywood Hills home so cheap? Jokes Smith, ”Keeping those indecent photos taken of him pre-superstardom was a wise move.”
