  • Jennifer Aniston

    When her marriage to <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1042412,00.html" target="_hplink">Brad Pitt soured in 2005</a>, Jennifer Aniston <a href="http://www.zillow.com/blog/2011-03-02/jennifer-anistons-beverly-hills-pocket-listing-42-million/" target="_hplink">purchased a $13.5 million Beverly Hills estate she dubbed "Ohana"</a> and threw herself into renovating it. The "Friends" star added on to the five bedroom, seven bathroom home, upping the total footage to 10,000 square feet and making the space more energy efficient. The wine cellar was said to boast a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/blog/2011-03-02/jennifer-anistons-beverly-hills-pocket-listing-42-million/" target="_hplink">"biometric security system" </a>so that only Aniston's unique fingerprint could open the lock. Aniston sold "Ohana" for a cool $36 million in the summer of 2011 and dropped $21 million for a <a href="http://hookedonhouses.net/2012/01/26/jennifer-anistons-sleek-new-21-million-house-in-bel-air/" target="_hplink">sprawling modernist home</a> in Bel Air with beau Justin Theroux the next year.

  • Tiger Woods

    Tiger Wood's didn't let his <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/news/story?id=5489950" target="_hplink">2010 divorce from Elin Nordegren</a> stand in the way of renovating the <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1364311/Tiger-Woods-60m-Florida-mansion-running-track-golf-course.html" target="_hplink">Jupiter, Florida mansion he bought</a> while they were still married; the golf pro simply changed his plans and turned the $60 million property into the ultimate bachelor pad. To that end, Woods reportedly outfitted the property with a <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1364311/Tiger-Woods-60m-Florida-mansion-running-track-golf-course.html" target="_hplink">running track, a four-hole golf course</a> and a <a href="http://bleacherreport.com/articles/448250-tiger-woods-details-on-his-post-divorce-54-million-mansion/page/8" target="_hplink">massive fitness center</a>.
