6. Shonda Rhimes
If there’s one thing writer and producer Shonda Rhimes knows about is story telling. The woman behind Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal bought her house thinking it was ugly, but that it had a story to tell, and today her home is one of the nicest looking houses among Hollywood stars.
You can leave it to celebrities to have enough courage to buy a house they find incredibly ugly, because they have the confidence (and the means) to turn it into anything they want. Rhymes saw the potential behind her Hancock Park home, and it took her no less than five years to remodel the house and make it her home.
