As it turns out, there are thousands of of us searching online for movie stars’ homes every month. And, with more of us than ever spending the majority of time in our bedrooms, kitchens and lounges, there has been a peak in our interest in celebrity homes for 2020 and beyond.

Kate Winslet is the highest searched British actress and comes in 4th place overall, with 590 searches each month for her stately home in Sussex.

The Oscar-winning actress was reported to be selling her NYC pad in December as she settled in England for good. Her home is a 17th century, eight-bedroom property situated by the sea in West Wittering, Sussex. Winslet bought the property for £4.1 million in 2015.

3rd Place: Hugh Grant

Chelsea, London

The quintessentially British actor is the third most searched celebrity on our list, with 700 searches a month for his lavish six-bedroom semi in Chelsea, London. Purchased in 2019 for a staggering £17.5 million, it’s not surprising to see such public interest in this particular celebrity home.

2nd Place: Tom Hardy

With 720 searches a month, Tom Hardy has the second most searched-for celebrity home. The much-admired 43-year-old actor lives in Richmond, where he has reportedly started looking into self-sufficiency and growing his own vegetables during lockdown.

1st Place: Jason Statham
