After finding out she didn’t care for life in the big city anymore or even her neighbors, actress Jennifer Anniston sells her New York City apartments at a discount, just so she can leave. She opted on selling her two city apartment properties to live in California full-time. Aniston may have grown up in New York, and moved back to be with boyfriend Justin Theroux, but she says it isn’t the place she remembers anymore.
“We tried New York,” said the 43-year-old actress. “It was a little rough with the paparazzi. It didn’t feel like the New York I grew up in and knew.”
She had also told an Australian talk show that New York “is like living in a fish bowl,” then there were her neighbors, that she said “mortified” her.
She had paid a combined $7.01 million for the neighboring apartments in the hopes of making them into one big condo down the road, along with Theroux. Instead, they will now live full-time in their 8,500-sq-ft, $21 million Bel Air estate they bought last year together.
To get rid of the NYC apartments as quickly as possible she sold them to a real estate developer for a combined $6.5 million, more than $500,000 less she had paid.
Aniston said, “Here in L.A. you have a more relaxed sense of the world and life, and you realize there’s nothing to be taken too seriously besides doing your work and being a really good person.”
