Celebrity real estate: Billy Bob Thornton’s LA mansion

According to Zillow, the house that Billy Bob Thornton once shared with then-wife Angelina Jolie is now up for sale. The 11,000-square-foot mansion lists at $9.995M and features a pool, tennis court, paddle tennis court, gym, library, in-home recording studio and two-story living room. They bought the property back in 2000 for around $3.75M from Guns ‘n Roses guitarist Slash, which means the housing market in LA has exploded since then or Thornton is trying to capitalize on his ex-wife’s fame to pad the price.

Celebrity real estate often garners top price. What would you pay for a 9 bed/10 bath house like this? What if it was in Greater Chicagoland instead of LA?
