    When it comes to buying and selling celebrity residences that run in the tens of millions of dollars, the action usually takes place in high-priced cities like Los Angeles and New York. But this time around it’s the Nashville suburb of Franklin, Tennessee, that’s getting the attention now that country music royal couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have listed their estate there for $20 million, according to real estate website Zillow.

    The next buyers will certainly be getting plenty for their money: The property totals 753 acres and includes four residences and a barn.

    One residence is an Antebellum-style house, which, according to the listing agent’s notes, was the former home of Hank Williams Sr. and "needs restoration." There's also a 12-stall barn with an attached caretaker's apartment that totals 1,188 square feet and a 3-bedroom, 3,330-square-foot restored log home built in 1850. Based on interior shots, that's the more luxurious home that probably gets used the most with its

    When it comes to big-deal social events, the Met Gala is one of the year's most anticipated. The swanky soiree always takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always hosted by fashion bible Vogue, and always features plenty of Hollywood's hottest celebrities dressed in creative creations from world-renowned designers. But when this year's event took place in May, the media was most eagerly awaiting the appearance of not A-list actors, but two professional athletes: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn.

    "Tiger's fame is obviously in the extreme, the amount of scrutiny that he's constantly under," Vonn, 28, says in Vogue's new August issue. "But that's the thing: It all comes back to being happy. It doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks; do what you love to do and be happy and that's it."

    Thanks to the fact Vonn is Woods's first serious girlfriend since his infidelity scandal made international headlines and led to his split from wife Elin Nordegren,

  • Jason Sudeikis on His Ellen DeGeneres Crush: ‘It Was 100 Percent for Real’

    Jason Sudeikis (Jason McDonald/Elle)"It was the gorgeous blue eyes. And she’s hilarious. That's all it takes for me," Jason Sudeikis says in the latest issue of Elle magazine. But no, he's not talking about fiancée Olivia Wilde. He's talking about his college crush.

    Ellen DeGeneres.

    "It was 100 percent for real," he insists.

    More than a decade and a half later, his new crush is the woman he plans to spend the rest of his life with: the 29-year-old Wilde. Sudeikis knows that public perception is that the "Tron" hottie is out of his league, and while he claims in the interview that it doesn't bother him … well, it kind of sounds like it does. "I don't get upset about it," the 37-year-old says, but then admits: "I might have a moment of gangster flare-up. It's more like, You don't know me!"

  • Cher Buys Beverly Hills Home for $2.1 Million … But Will She Actually Live There?

    Beverly Hills can add one more rich and famous face to its roster of homeowners. Cher just purchased a 4-bedroom, 3-bath home there for a little over $2.145 million, according to real estate website Trulia.

    As per the home's original listing, the two-story house sits on about a half acre, and boasts a bright, eat-in kitchen with stone countertops and (pricey) Viking appliances; beamed ceilings; a master bedroom with two fireplaces; and a closet that would make any clotheshorse drool complete with "his and her" sides and a center island, perfect for storing all those Bob Mackie pieces.

    Cher (Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images) The house certainly sounds fit for a celebrity who values her privacy since it's gated and sits at the end of a private driveway, nestled in a canyon. As for outdoor space, there's a courtyard adjacent to the kitchen, a deck attached to the master bedroom, a patio off the living room, and a large yard with a waterfall and meditation space.

  • Inside Bruce Jenner’s Beach Bachelor Pad

    Bruce Jenner will be spending time in Malibue ... wife Kris Jenner won't be. (WireImage)He may be a married man, but Bruce Jenner apparently needs a bachelor pad.

    On an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that aired last month, Bruce, 63, and wife Kris Jenner — better known as the Kardashian momager — got into an argument after Bruce and his pals made a ruckus flying model helicopters and interrupted Kris's in-home massage. (Ah, the problems of the rich.) "You can go get a man cave. You and your ping-pong table and your dog can go have a great time," a frustrated Kris, 57, to whom he's been married for 22 years, told him. "Your helicopter friends, you can all go find a little getaway that you can go relax at."

    And that he did.

    With rumors of marriage troubles swirling, the former Olympian is shelling out $14,500 a month not just for a man cave, but a Malibu man cave. According to real estate website Trulia, the place totals 4,456 square feet, boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and sits right on star-studded Broad Beach, overlooking the Pacific. And now

  • Why Halle Berry Changed Her Mind on Marriage

    Why did Halle Berry change her mind about marriage? (WireImage)"I will never, never get married again.”

    Halle Berry uttered that short phrase (packed with not one but two nevers) back in the spring of 2007 during an interview with InStyle magazine … and six years later, has taken it back. The Oscar winner is engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez, with whom she's expecting a child, and the two are rumored to be tying the knot this weekend.

    Hey Halle, here’s another double-never phrase for you: Never say never.

    So what's different this time around? It's not just that the 46-year-old thinks she's found the right guy in Martinez, 47, and wants a family with him. At the time of the InStyle interview, Berry was in a relationship with model Gabriel Aubry, with whom she'd go on to have daughter Nahla, now 5. The couple split in 2010 after five years together and ended up in a bitter custody battle punctuated with abuse allegations.

    Amanda Seyfried talks to Elle. (Carter Smith/Elle)To actor Dominic Cooper's next love interest: By dating him, you're automatically going to get another celebrity in your life: his ex-girlfriend Amanda Seyfried

    "We love each other," Seyfried tells Elle magazine of Cooper, whom she met on the set of "Mamma Mia!" and dated for two years before breaking up in 2010. "He'll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I'm never going to be with a guy that can't deal with my friendship with him."

    And, based on something else, er, interesting, she says in the interview, featured in the magazine's August issue, there was obviously sexual chemistry from the moment they met. "Everybody I've dated I've been sexually attracted to immediately," the former "Big Love" actress reveals. "Sparks don't grow — your vagina doesn't become more inclined to wanting someone just because you're around them."

  • College Orientation Is a Little More Exciting With Matt Damon There

    A parent-student college orientation session on a humid Nebraska day doesn't sound like an event full of excitement, but it certainly was for a group of incoming students and their parents at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln on Wednesday when Hollywood A-lister Matt Damon quietly joined them.

    "A man wrote 'M. Damon' on his name tag and our folks over at the orientation thought, 'Oh ha ha,' but we were surprised to learn it actually was Matt Damon," school spokesperson Steve Smith tells omg!.No, the Oscar winner — who dropped out of Harvard more than two decades ago to pursue acting — wasn't going back to school at age 42 to finally get his degree. He was accompanying an incoming college freshman. "It's a student he has a relationship is but I don't know what the relationship is," says Smith, who explains that while it's typically a parent who attends orientation with a student, it could be an older sibling, a guardian, mentor, or other relative. In this case, it sounds like Damon was being the good uncle.

  • Olivia Wilde on Jason Sudeikis: ‘I Like Having a Real Partner’

    Olivia Wilde on the August cover. (Giampaolo Sgura/InStyle)Olivia Wilde may have been married for eight years to Italian prince Tao Ruspoli (whom she wed when she was just 19), but it sounds like she's finally found her Prince Charming in former "Saturday Night Live" castmember Jason Sudeikis.

    "I like having a real partner. It's the model I grew up with. It's part of why I was able to take so many chances in my life, because I felt like someone was watching my back. I could never imagine life without someone I respect, someone who offers me infinite possibilities," the 29-year-old tells InStyle of her 37-year-old fiancé, whom she's been with for nearly two years.

    Though she admits there are challenges that come with having two people involved in show business in a relationship. (Incidentally, Sudeikis was previously married to actress and "30 Rock" writer Kay Cannon, while Wilde's ex Ruspoli was a filmmaker.) "There are spikes and dips and plateaus in this business. I've seen couples fall apart through it, and it is heartbreaking," Wilde says
