Dennis Hopper, Rolling Over in the Grave



Actor Dennis Hopper's Venice, Calif., compound is back on the market -- at a higher price tag, according to Realtor.com. Now listed at $6,495,000, what's being offered is a five-parcel package that includes a 4,800-square-foot main house and three two-story condos designed by Frank Gehry, plus a 100-year-old guest cottage, a pool and a pool house. With an undulating aluminum and steel exterior, the main residence has been described as "an ode to the industrial look."

But let's get back to the higher price part, and the part about rolling over in the grave. At the time of his death at age 74 from prostate cancer, Hopper had filed for divorce from his fifth wife, Victoria Duffy. Despite being estranged -- and not quite divorced -- both still lived on the property. We figure that with 15,500 square feet of living space, this arrangement is at least imaginable if perhaps even tenable.
