Homes gossip: Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt battle for the same house in Richmond

Amira Hashish has all the latest gossip on celebrity moves, including Lady Gaga's luxury penthouse living in New York; Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp battling to rent the same Richmond property; the former home of Richard Hargreaves - creator of the Mr Men book series - is for sale; and a chance to live next to celebrity polo hotspot in Cowdray
Pity the poor estate agent who has to choose between Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt. Both actors are determined to rent the same Richmond house when they film in Britain later this year.

Depp is expected in the capital for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 in December, when Pitt is set to be working here on a separate project. And both have their hearts set on the property, which they have each rented in the past and fallen in love with, thanks to its great security features, spacious grounds and easy accessibility to central London.

But before Depp prepares to draw his sword he should consider a five-bedroom family home in the heart of Petersham, available to rent at £10,000 a month through Hamptons International. Gort Lodge’s blend of traditional and modern styling offers the best of both worlds.

Take a look inside the luxury home here.
