Fascinating fact:

Actor Rob Lowe is reportedly preparing to downsize his home after placing his sprawling 20-room mansion in Montecito, California on the market for a whopping $42 million (£28 million). The West Wing star and his wife, Sheryl Berkoff, are offloading the house now that their two sons, Matthew, 20, and 18-year-old John, are grown up, according to the New York Post. The next owner will be able to boast about living in the company of superstars – Oprah Winfrey, Drew Barrymore and comedienne Ellen DeGeneres are all neighbours.
