Here’s How Brad Pitt Got ~$40 Million Richer This Week

Brad Pitt is already one of the richest actors in the world with a reported net worth of $400 million, buuuuuut he’s officially ~$40 million richer thanks to selling his long-time home. By which I mean mansion.

People reports that Brad has “found a buyer” for his “sprawling estate” in Los Angeles, which he put on the market for ~$40 million back in January. And while the exact amount that Brad ended up getting for the home is under wraps, he’s turning a huge profit considering he purchased it for “just” $1.7 million back in 1994.

Apparently, Brad is now “looking for something smaller” in the L.A. area, though let’s not forget that this man also recently purchased a casual cliffside bachelor pad in Carmel, which happened to be the most expensive home ever sold in the area. According to The Daily Mail, Brad’s Carmel Craftsman place has its very own name (Seaward), and is literally built on a cliff with “locally quarried sandstone and granite.” Basically, it’s a castle.

And speaking of castles, quick survey of Brad’s other properties: he and Angelina Jolie famously owned a winery together in France, as well as a New Orleans mansion that they sold for $4.5 million, and a “superyacht” worth an estimated $322 million. Brad also bought a $3.1 million villa in Mallorca around the time of their divorce, and owns (or owned…TBD on if he’s offloaded some of these properties) a beach house near Santa Barbara worth at least $4 million, and a $8.4 million mansion in Malibu (which he sold to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi for $12 million).
