Not all the stars want to be in La La Land.

While many celebs are happy living in their gigantic mansions and enjoying the near-year-round sunshine in the Hollywood Hills, Malibu and other uber-rich communities of Los Angeles, others prefer to live in what New Yorkers call the greatest city in the world.

A More “Normal” Life for Celebrity Kids:

Recent reports said Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel , parents of son Silas , who is almost 2, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt , parents of daughters Hazel , 3, and Violet , 9 months, just bought homes in New York City.

Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso , parents of four daughters, also live there.


“We’re not leaving,” he told USA Today in 2010. “Nobody bothers me. The younger ones are not aware of any of the celebrity [stuff]. We walk to school every morning. We play in the park. It feels like a normal life.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas own a few homes, including a luxury apartment in Manhattan.

“I hate L.A. with a passion,” the actress told Cosmopolitan U.K. in 2008. “We go there, work hard, have our meetings, then get the hell out again. I don’t know how people live there, especially with kids.”

She and Douglas share son Dylan , 16, and daughter Carys , who is almost 14.

More Chances to Meet People: In today’s age of dating apps, meeting people offline has become rare. But it’s more likely to occur in New York, where people walk everywhere, unlike in L.A., where people tend to drive even if their destination is one block away.

“I’m a New Yorker, I’ve always lived here but one of the reasons that I love New York is that the serendipity is just so thick here, so you can go out on the street and just see things you didn’t count on and you don’t have to swipe left or right,” Susan Sarandon said at post-screening Q&A in New York for her film The Meddler , according to People .
