Our celebrities are rich and famous and therefore can afford to live in any kind of house they desire. But unlike us, there are basic things celebrities look out for in choosing a house, top on the list is privacy, they need a place where they can escape the itchy shutter fingers of paparazzi so they usually go for secluded areas. To avoid public appearance as much as possible, celebrities usually have over the top amenities in their homes like movie theaters, gyms, pools, game rooms, beauty saloon and even panic rooms in case of intruders.
