Here Are Some Luxury Love Nests Of Privacy-Seeking Stars

- — For A-listers, singers and celebrities being chase by hordes of tabloid and TMZ-type paparazzi, there's not a lot of anonymity when it comes to romance.

So what's a star to do about a little private place to cozy up without the intrusion of the looming lenses? Find a romantic hideaway -- preferably one with an infinity pool, hot tub, and manicured and gated grounds!

In honor of Valentine's Day, we're taking a peek past the high walls and security to see where some of the big stars — past and present — hole up with their significant others.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

Since her days on "Friends," Jennifer Aniston has reaped the "rewards" of stardom like no other, especially since her high-profile split from Brad Pitt. Jennifer's relationships — and rumors of pregnancies — are a constant source of media fodder.

Her latest relationship with actor Justin Theroux has been no different, especially now that the couple recently purchased a home together. Jen and Justin's new home is located in the ultra-private and celeb-friendly Bel-Air neighborhood. Priced at $24.9 million, they reportedly snagged the home for around $22 million.

The mid-century modern home, above, was designed in 1965 by noted Los Angeles architect A. Quincy Jones. Set on a 3+ acre promontory with high gates, the home gives Jen and Justin privacy as well as spectacular city views.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

The vampire couple in the "Twilight" series is a couple in real life too, albeit a super private one. Although it’s commonly reported that they’re together, the two have never formally announced their relationship. They prefer to hide out from the media's prying eyes in romantic hideaways.


One of "Twilight" stars' more famous hideaways was a Los Angeles home rental, pictured above, that they snagged last summer. According to previous listing information, the lake home offers “privacy, serenity and tranquility,” perfect for the stars to take a breather between filming. The 5-bedroom, 5-bath home sits on over half an acre of land overlooking the Stone Canyon Reservoir at the end of a gated dead-end drive, but is only minutes from Sunset Strip and the rest of Beverly Hills.
