There are certain celebrities that we, for whatever reason, simply can’t imagine being young. It’s almost as if they reached a certain age and simply froze in time. Take Morgan Freeman for example – it doesn’t look like he aged a single day since The Shawshank Redemption! And don’t even get us started on Keanu Reeves. But as surprising as it may sound, they have once been young too – and the photos from their youth might surprise you.
Check out the famous actors you’ve probably never seen in their youth in the gallery below! And if you want more, see our previous post about celebrities hanging out with their younger selves here.
Broad City star Abbi Jacobson is the latest celebrity to shell out for a midcentury-style home in recent weeks, and based on descriptions of the restored 1950s home, it isn’t hard to see the appeal. The 2,000-square-foot, two-story residence, located in Los Angeles’s Silver Lake neighborhood, includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a separate office space accessible through a three-car garage). It also oversees the city’s downtown skyline. The home’s main focus seems to be natural light: The living room is lined with windows and the dining room features glass sliders that open out onto a covered patio, perfect for sunbathing in late December or watching the sun rise each morning. Meryl Streep and Kristen Wiig have also recently purchased homes in a similar style.
Meryl Streep boasts an impressive 42-year history in Hollywood, so it’s only fitting that the acting legend is now associated with a house that has an equally impressive legacy. The award-winning actress purchased the 3,087-square-foot home in Pasadena, California, for $3.6 million, marking the first time the gorgeous late-1950s mid-century modern home has changed hands in nearly 50 years. The home, which originally had an asking price of $4.125 million, features a winding, tree-covered drive that opens up to the noticeably low-slung estate.
The home, located on one of Pasadena’s most prestigious streets, includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and was designed by lesser known midcentury architects Whitney Smith and Wayne Williams, who incorporated plenty of windows and skylights into the space for maximum natural light. The living area is high-ceilinged, with wood panels and tiled walls that help add texture to the interior of the open-plan home. Each bedroom, scattered throughout the house’s wings, also features floor-to-ceiling windows. The backyard features a stunning tree-framed view of the iconic Colorado Street Bridge.
