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.

Congrats Ben and Jen:

America and the world needs people with money to spend even more in these horrible financial times. If not for rich people, we would all be starving. They helped the owner, the bank, the real estate company, the agent who sold them the house, the community that no longer has a "for sale" sign in their neighborhood, the stores around there that they will be purchasing products from, the school system, the California state who steals our money and calls it taxation, the furniture designers and decorators who have not business anymore... It goes on and on and while they are helping the community, you all jealous people should ask yourselves, why do I hate, why am I so jealous, why do I sit on my computer on TMZ and instead of spouting horrible words, why am I not working harder and better and with dignity to help myself, my community? All of you, animals shelters need help - spend your time helping not worsening the world around you.

OK Obama, why arn't you getting ahold of this wealth to share with the have nots before they spend it all? I mean if they can afford this they are NOT paying enough in taxes. No wonder CA is broke they are not taxing the RICH enough. Or maybe they are hiding it somehow. Oh wait it's the middle classs who are going to pay, sorry I forgot. If he taxed these folks like he should then he would not have donations for his next campaign.

Ben, along with Matt Damon each won an Oscar for Good Will Hunting. TMZ got this one wrong.
