Celebrities love to complain about how rough it is to be in the public eye, constantly hounded by paparazzi hungry for shots of cellulite or no-panty-parties.  On one level, I sympathize: it would definitely suck to wake up and get dressed knowing that whatever you wear will be scrutinized by legions of online critics (yes, me included).  A day without makeup is, for many stars, inconceivable.

But these people have chosen to become very public figures, and we shouldn't forget that despite the nuisances, these select few have some pretty substantial payoffs.  I find it difficult to wrap my head around a $20 million paycheck for six weeks of work, but when I see what it actually buys, it forces me to reevaluate any pity parties I might have thrown for the Hollywood crowd.  Why bother to go outside if you have a multi-million dollar Malibu beach compound like supermodel Cindy Crawford?

Feeling sorry for poor, famous Julia Roberts?

It seems like everyone owns a piece of real estate on this coast.  Here's Kate Hudson's Malibu, CA beach home:

And her ex-boyfriend Owen Wilson's:

Remember that for many of these stars, this is a second or third home.  Suddenly, I just don't feel as terrible about reading semi-exploitative tabloids. Do you?
