FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CELEBRITY REAL ESTATE IS JUST LIKE OURS (ONLY MORE EXPENSIVE)
Global property portal explores which properties Oscar nominees can afford in the emerging markets
An Oscar is not a monetary prize, but winning the coveted statuette is considered to be one of the highest acknowledgements an actor, a filmmaker or a film can receive. However, we are more interested in what kind of real estate is available for the salaries Oscar nominees received for their roles.
Global property portal Lamudi answers the question, “What could an Oscar nominee buy in the emerging markets with their salary?”
Jennifer Lawrence in Joy, $15 million
Lawrence is probably best known for playing Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games series of films. However, she has been nominated for an Academy Award three times for her other work and won the Best Actress prize for Silver Linings Playbook. Today, she has been nominated for a fourth Oscar, this time as Best Actress in a Leading Role for her part in Joy.
With her salary of $15 million from Joy, Jennifer Lawrence can buy mansion in Dhaka. Actually, she could buy almost 4 of them.
Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies, $11.6 million
Everyone knows that Tom Hanks is one of the highest paid actors in the universe. Hanks’ last film, Bridge of Spies, has been nominated for Best Picture. But Hanks is no stranger to Oscar glory. He has been nominated for the prize several times and won the Best Actor award for portraying Forrest Gump.
Since we don’t know how much he earned for Bridge of Spies, we can only assume he was paid something around $11.6 million–the average pay he received for his last three major roles. With that, Tom Hanks could buy this single family home in Jakarta, Indonesia, and still have enough left to buy a box of chocolates.
The huge luxury home with marble and granite floors sits on 700 square meters of land and has a combined area of 800 square meters on its two floors.
Matt Damon in the Martian, $25 million
Also not a stranger to the Academy, Matt Damon is up for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his work in the Martian. There has been some controversy over the reportedly $25 million he received for the film, namely because his co-star Jessica Chastain received a far lower salary of $7 million.
Matt can afford quite a lot of real estate with $25 million, including this residential tower in Business Bay, Dubai, but he would have to get a mortgage.
The tower features 176 residential units, seven shops and a plethora of world-class amenities, such as a spa, a massage parlor and 24-hour concierge.
Rachel McAdams in Spotlight, $1.1 million
Rachel McAdams, who is up for a Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Spotlight, reportedly received only $1.1 million for the film, which is very low by today’s standards.
Still, $1.1 million is no paltry sum. McAdams could easily afford this apartment in Rosales, Bogotá, Colombia.
The duplex apartment features stunning views of the city, wooden floors and plenty of closet space. The building itself has an elevator and 24-hour security.
Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn, $1 million
21-year-old Irish actress Saoirse Ronan’s star has been rising for several years now. The young thespian is still in the beginning stages of her career and has yet to command the larges sums that many of her older colleagues do. Ronan is up for the award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her film Brooklyn.
Based on her presumed net worth of 2.5 million, the actress from the Emerald Isle probably hasn’t broken the $1 million threshold. But with that kind of money, she can just about afford this six-bedroom house in DHA Phase 6, Karachi.
The gigantic house in one of Karachi’s premier neighborhoods is close to the budding nightlife and recreational areas of the city.
The Bear from the Revenant, $9.99 per pound
Although the bear from the Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is not up for an award, we believe that he deserves an honorable mention on our list. To date, no other animal actor has so convincingly mauled DiCaprio (on film that is).
Unfortunately, based on the $9.99-per-pound cost of fish heads and chicken gizzards the bear received as “payment” during filming, he can not afford to buy anything in the emerging markets.
