Russell Brand has bought Laurence Olivier's first Los Angeles home. The comedian paid £1.3 million for the five-bedroom, five-bathroom property, which was built by architect Roy Selden Price in 1926.
The interiors of Brand's new bachelor pad are a vibrant mix of modern and traditional — it has a cinema, beautifully arched ceilings and a roof terrace with incredible views.
However, the flamboyant British funnyman may not have much time to enjoy it for a few months. He is on his Messiah Complex world tour until April 2014.
