Ben & Jen

Blue Ribbon Home

5/2/2009 11:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have just purchased a mansion that was formerly owned by Gregory Peck -- thereby placing the couple the closest they will ever get to an acting Oscar.



The 8,000 square foot ranch house in the Pacific Palisades was sold to the couple for a whopping $17.5 million by mega-producer Brian Grazer, according to Hot Property. The five bedroom house features a gym, swimming pool and eight bathrooms -- and Gregory Peck once shot an ad for Pabst Blue Ribbon beer in the den.

The house was originally listed for $27.5 mil. Times are tough people, sometimes $17.5 mil is all a man can get.

The picture you are showing is not Ben and Jen's new house that they purchased from Brian Grazer. You are showing a home that sold in the Beverly Park area of Beverly Hills for $31.5M recently. How are earth are you confusing that for their new house in Pacific Palisades? This is horrible and very shotty reporting.

Umm, ok, whether it is or isn't their house....I like the house pictured, LOL. At least the shot of it anyway, it must be the lighting that makes me like it, certainly not the extravagance of it.

Ben is a lousy actor married to a plain Jane woman who is an equally lousy actress.
Beats me why magazines even pay attention to her and her ordinary looks.

The pictured house is in Beverly Hills, not Pacific Palisades, has 27,000 sq.ft., is twice the price and was built recently, so there's no chance Gregory Peck even stepped inside it. It was also owned by developer Jeff Bazyler as a spec house and recently sold to some rich Ukranians.
