As one of Hollywood's biggest stars, Leonardo DiCaprio has made millions of dollars over the years, many of which he has opted to put into real estate. The actor owns several homes in California along with a New York City apartment and an island in Belize, and he's also extended his real estate portfolio to his parents, purchasing a home in Los Feliz, California for his father, George DiCaprio, and another property in Los Feliz for his mom, Irmelin Indenbirken.
According to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, DiCaprio bought his mother a nearly 5,000 square-foot home in Los Feliz, paying $7.1 million for the Spanish Colonial-style spread. DiCaprio purchased the property from Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita, and it previously belonged to Gwen Stefani and her ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
