Hilary Swank

Located in the heart of New York City, Swanks city apartment is a mere 1,400 square foot apartment. Swank considers her New York apartment to be like a treehouse overlooking the city. Swank grew up living in a trailer, so she is used to living in smaller spaces. She has a travertine floored updated spa like bathroom, and the rest of the apartment is styled in a very understated manner but chic.

Johansson owned a 1,300 square foot duplex loft in Manhattan. The duples loft offered 22 foot high ceilings, Brazilian cherry hard wood floors, a limestone fireplace, double height windows, a chef's kitchen, 2 full baths, and a European pod shaped soaking tub. Even though Johansson once lived in this smaller apartment, she originally paid $1.95 million for the 1,300 square foot duplex loft. Living in Manhattan doesn't come cheap.

      Lewis, I agree. It's sad that these are the most "modest" homes I could find celebrities living in. Imagine how much good each of them could do with that amount of money.
