Where is the island house from The Thomas Crown Pierce Brosnan Rene Russo Affair?:Do you remember the 1999 Pierce Brosnan, Rene Russo art-heist movie The Thomas Crown Affair? Thomas Crown is the most badass rich guy in movie history. Some day my dream is to basically recreate his entire life, complete with a private jet, Bentley, mansion in New York City, a ton of cool expensive toys and perhaps most importantly, an absolutely amazing Caribbean island getaway. I’ve always wondered where the Thomas Crown Affair island house was located. The Thomas Crown Affair island house is located on the French Caribbean Island of Martinique. The house is located in the southeastern area of Martinique within the district of Le Vauclina directly above the Baie du Vauclin and overlooking the island “ile Petite Grenade”. The house’s long, winding driveway shoots off of a dirt road called Anse Maroquet. The house’s exact longitude and latitude is 14.568032,-60.829931. Just cut and paste “14.568032,-60.829931″ into Google or Bing maps and you will be taken directly to the house. Not much is known about the owners of the house. The property has apparently been owned by the same wealthy family for over 5 generations. The family is one of the original people to settle on the island in the 17th century. Ever since the release of the movie, local real estate and travel agents have been bombarded with requests to rent the property but so far none have been accommodated.
Martin Lawrence’s House Up for Rent: The Hollywood Funny Man has new real estate plan:Martin Lawrence’s house in Beverly Hills has seven bedrooms, nine and half bathrooms, and over-the-top styling that screams, “Movie Star!”. The 13,900 square foot property also houses a wine room, a private movie theater with its own concessions area, a gym, a huge swimming pool, an enclosed poolside cabana, winding staircases, marble floors, huge chandeliers, a games room, multiple fireplaces, a large aquarium, and a state of the art kitchen. Martin Lawrence’s house is renting for $200,000 per month, and if you like ostentatious styling and ridiculously high ceilings, Martin Lawrence’s house might be the perfect spot for you. His professional on-camera career began in the late 80s, with roles on such shows as, “What’s Happening Now!”, and multiple pilots. From there, he transitioned into film work, and for the next few years, he would go back and forth between successful big and small screen projects. He appeared in such films as “Do the Right Thing”, “House Party”, and “Boomerang”. In 1992, he began starring in the television show that would bring him the most fame, as the lead character in “Martin”. He earned legions of new fans with his appearances as part of “Def Comedy Jam”, and he also co-starred, with Will Smith, in the blockbuster summer film, “Bad Boys”, and its sequel. Unfortunately, somewhere in there, things started to go awry in his personal life. He was hospitalized multiple times, and arrested once, between 1995 and 1997 for erratic or violent behavior, and his behavior on the set of “Martin” was so unpredictable and ugly, that his co-star filed a lawsuit. He has since slowed the pace of his work down, and has seemed to be back on track. His change in work style has also meant changes in his personal life, including a recent divorce, and now he has put his massive Beverly Hills mansion up for rent.
