Paparazzi are a real threat if you’re an A-lister — especially if you’re an A-lister in love.
The one way to combat photographers and fans set on catching a glimpse of their favorite couples? Find yourself a really private home — preferably one with high gates and a top-of-the-line security system. We’re taking a tour through some of those secure love nests and the celebrity couples who occupy them.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield began dating after playing love interests in the latest "Spider-Man" movie. The two previously lived in a New York townhouse, but more recently they’ve been sharing the Beverly Hills home that Stone bought for $2.5 million. The gated 3,900-square-foot home is surrounded by high hedges to keep prying eyes out.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Soon-to-be parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently bought a home in a gated and super private neighborhood in Bel-Air. The Mediterranean-style home spans 9,000 square feet — more than enough for the reality TV star, rapper and their future child.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
Even while they were broken up, the “Twilight” couple couldn’t stay away from each other. While they were still apart, Kristen Stewart purchased her own home — just streets away from Robert Pattinson’s place. Now that the two are back together, they can swap between homes without having to leave Los Feliz.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Shortly after Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore ended their marriage, Kutcher picked up a super-sleek home in Hollywood Hills. The home is situated above Lake Arrowhead behind walls and gates, making it a perfect place for Kutcher and new flame Mila Kunis to hide away from the paparazzi.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
Jennifer Aniston and current beau Justin Theroux picked up a modern Bel-Air estate in January 2012. Designed in 1965 by noted Los Angeles architect A. Quincy Jones, the home is set on a 3-plus-acre promontory with high gates, providing Aniston and Theroux privacy as well as spectacular city views.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
Olivia Wilde made the cross-country move for love, listing her L.A. home for sale and buying a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath apartment to be closer to fiance and funnyman Jason Sudeikis. Although the two are often photographed walking in Manhattan, they are guaranteed privacy in a loft apartment, several stories above the streets.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
On-and-off couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel recently made it official, getting married in Italy. The couple own a few properties between the two of them, but most often they are spotted in New York, where Timberlake owns a modern penthouse in SoHo.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus bought this home on her own for $3.9 million in August 2011 but now shares it with fiance Liam Hemsworth. The Studio City home doesn’t lack for privacy; the gated and walled compound is situated down a private country lane and includes state-of-the-art security systems.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
This A-list couple really values their privacy. Not only did Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds keep their home purchase under wraps, but they also managed to get married without tipping off the press. They reportedly dropped $2.3 million on their home, located in quiet and picturesque Bedford Hills, NY.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski decided to make their love nest outside the city lights of L.A. The pair bought an eco-friendly estate back in June for $2.15 million that sits on the site of the original Ojai hotel.
