Now that they’ve moved to a huge and rather sinister-looking mansion perched miles above the Sunset Strip, actress Milla Jovovich and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson have unsurprisingly put their longtime Los Angeles main residence up for grabs. Tucked away in the mountains above Beverly Hills, just a quick skip from the perilously pricey Trousdale Estates enclave, the Tuscan-style estate is saddled with an impressive $14 million list price.
Jovovich and Anderson acquired the property way back in 2008 for $8.5 million, records reveal. Since then, they’ve redone and expanded the grounds and have put plenty of additional custom touches on the place, which is truly a bonafide compound — there’s a mansion-sized main house with five bedrooms, plus a detached two-bedroom guesthouse and a standalone poolhouse/gym with its own kitchen.
Born in Ukraine, Jovovich spent her early life in Russia before emigrating with her family to California in the 1980s. After a rebellious teenage streak — by her own admission, she frequently shoplifted and was once arrested for committing credit card fraud — the 5’9″ brunette began a very lucrative career in fashion; by 2004, she was reportedly the world’s highest-paid model. As an actress, the “Resident Evil” movie franchise made her a household name, and her films have grossed north of $1.6 billion worldwide. As for Anderson, he’s the creative driver behind the “Resident Evil” franchise, which is now the most commercially successful video game adaptation of all time.
In addition to their for-sale estate and their new mansion above the Sunset Strip, Jovovich and Anderson still own at least two other Los Angeles homes: one of them a property in L.A.’s Mount Olympus neighborhood that is occupied by Jovovich’s mother Galina, and the other a “Palm Springs-style” investment house in prime Beverly Hills.
