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.

I have never read so much whining in my life. If you people care so much about the environment, then how about getting off the computer, which, um, uses electricity, and go out and enjoy life.

Do you people have any idea how you sound, with this poor pitiful me crap that you continually post about?

So they bought a house, big friggin deal.

It seems to me that a lot of people here are jealous.

Kellie,

Get over yourself. Whether they help the poor or not, is none of your business. They bought a house. That is all. They are rich because they were/are successful in their chosen careers. That doesn't make them spoiled.

If I had their kind of money , I would buy a nice big house too. So what , they have earned it . It's THEIR money people ! I also would give back to our society where needed . Why shouldn't they live in a nice big house . Should we all live exactly the same no matter whom does what for a living ? I think there are a lot of jealous people out there. I say good for them !!!

My god people- this is one couple that is making it in Hollywood. Stop hating on them. They've been in their old house since before Violet was born. I'd buy the new house too if I could. They both still have the star power to get people out and spend money. All you haters are just jealous you can't look like that, make that kind of money and produce beautiful children as well. GO BEN & JEN -- you guys ROCK!

why?    

To all you non haters out there, what is your problem?If you "hate" haters what are you doing on this site? How retarded is that? Yes I SAID THAT! Last I checked this is still a free country and we are free to hate all we want. Big celebrities have a tendency to piss me off. Hard working people out here are loosing their homes but these rich spoiled stars seem to think they need to live in a house that could buy thousands of people homes and they could still live in a really nice home. They get paid mega bucks for doing what, the fine art of "pretending". Give me a break.
