Like another poster has already said, celebrities/stars live all over Los Angeles.
If you go to Rite Aid in BH you may see some incognito, especially around the cosmetic bar and ice cream area.
Stars live in Pasadena, Los Feliz, Baldwin Hills, Ladera Heights, Beverlywood, Bel Air (east & west), Hombly Hills, West LA, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Palisades, Malibu, and other beach cities, , Tarzana, Hidden Hills, Hollywood Hills, Laurel Canyon, and too many other areas to mention here.

Mainly, they live like the rest of us, they simply have a tad more money (at least some of them do LOL!)

Good luck, and enjoy yourself

yeah it was a somewhat decent gig. i needed a 2nd part time job along with another job i had, but towards the end of my run with starline many streets became restricted for us to drive through which made it difficult to do a tour because i didn't have a lot to work with; which is why some people would lie.

some tour guides are pretty cool though. i wouldnt mind doing some other type of tour out there if its legit.

1. I know most people coming to L.A want to view the star homes. Perhaps if I wasn't born here I'd want to do the same thing. The thing is most of these homes are all covered up/ hidden by landscaping. Also I've lived here my whole live, but have probably only seen a handful of celebs in public. Although I'm not crazy about celebs...you gotta admit it is sort of exciting to see them in their private lives , so to speak. Most i've seen probably just driving around actually. But the chance to see a bunch of celebrities on a short trip is probably rare.. But I don't hangout at the spots where they might hangout generally ...sooo...

2. It can take a LONGGGG time to get from one part of L.A to the other. Traffic can make it 3X longer versus no traffic. Also depends on what you consider L.A? L.A is a HUGE CITY. I'm guessing you are talking about like Downtown to the Beach or Vice Versa?

i can understand wanting to seeeee celebrities, but wanting to see their houses? that is a bit weird. but ok.

if you want to actually see celebrities, the best place in los angeles in my opinion is the venice boardwalk, and abbot kinney in venice. i never DIDN'T see a celebrity when i lived there. i saw angelica huston a number of times, wesley snipes, jason schwartzmann, molly ringwald, the guy who played "snider" on one day at a time, gretchen moll, samuel l. jackson, the blonde afroed guy from "that seventies show", minnie driver, joan osbourne....on and on an on. and best of all, javier bardem. he is much more good looking in real life than i actually thought possible.
or you could just drive around and waste your gas and look at houses!

I live here - and have absolutely no interest in seeing these peoples houses. If I ever see them in public I will be polite and say good morning or whatever - perhaps make small talk. Some people might get a "high" out of conversing with a celebrity - I would simply view it as being friendly. Celebrity hounds need to realize that these people are simply in a high profile line of work. Being an actor or actress is their mode of employment. It is a demanding job that requires much preparation, many hours, and some level of stress. It is true that they have some obligation to be responsive tho their fans - who after all pay the bills. I would think that their homes would be places of sanctuary that people would respect. Isn't that what people usually value most about their homes - the peace and privacy that one can find there? This is no different for people who make their living in front of a camera - and it is likely valued more so. Talk to these individuals on the street and ask for an autograph. Leave them alone in their homes.

I grew up in Venice many years ago and ran into so many B-list, charactor actor types usually at the park or store -- Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix, Risky Business), Harris Yulin (Scarface), Bill Paxton (Weird Science, Aliens 2, True Lies), Kareem Abdul Jabbar, etc. I didn't treat them any differently and they didn't act any differently than anyone else ... maybe 'cause they weren't huge stars. Lol
