The Woolsey-Malibu fire is still raging, and ash is starting to rain down on Hollywood, Silent Hill-style. Deadline and Today are reporting that Orlando Bloom, Lady Gaga, Rainn Wilson, Alyssa Milano, and Martin Sheen have all been evacuated. The Kardashians have also had to evacuate their Calabasas and Hidden Hills mansions. Robin Thicke’s mansion has burned down (he and his family are safe), but Caitlyn Jenner’s mansion was saved from structural damage. Here’s an update on the celebrities and their endangered homes.
Miley Cyrus broke her Twitter hiatus to share an update on her house. Unfortunately, she revealed she lost the Malibu home she shares with Liam Hemsworth. She stayed positive, adding, “My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now.” She also encouraged people to donate money, time, and supplies.
On November 9, Kim tweeted that flames had hit her property in Hidden Hills, but it was being contained. She and her family have all evacuated their homes.
While accepting the award for Best Reality Show at the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday, Kim Kardashian-West took a moment to speak out about the fires. “It’s been a really rough week in our home in Calabasas, Hidden Hills, and for our neighbors in Thousand Oaks and Malibu,” Kim shared on behalf of her family. “Our hearts are broken from the horrific shootings and for those who have lost their lives and homes, as well as the hundreds of thousands of us that have been evacuated from the devastating fires that are currently burning.”
Khloé has been active online, trying to raise support and donations for the firefighters. According to Kris Jenner, she also went out and bought supplies to donate.
Caitlyn Jenner was forced to evacuate her Malibu residence, but shared a video on Instagram, letting everyone know she and her pets were safe.
The singer tweeted out support for those affected, revealing she’s right alongside them in wondering if her “home will burst into flames.” She also dedicated two tweets to the firefighters battling the Woolsey fire.
The actor shared a heartbreaking photo of his home and car in Malibu, which were both destroyed by the fire. Despite the bleak circumstances, he stayed positive in his caption: “Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters.”
Cher’s Malibu home also seemed to be in danger. She shared a series of tweets, worrying about her house and sending well-wishes. The singer tried to remain positive and was focusing on Christmas “swag” instead.
On November 9, Alyssa, her family and (after a bit of help from the internet) her horses, were all evacuated from their home and safe. Two days later, she confirmed that her house is “still standing” but in jeopardy, and that she had started bringing supplies to firefighters.
After their son, Charlie Sheen, couldn’t get a hold of them, Martin and Janet Sheen were found on Zuma Beach in Malibu after having evacuated their home.
Guillermo del Toro announced on Sunday that his horror memorabilia-filled home luckily only faced smoke damage. Upon leaving “Bleak House” on November 9, he tweeted, “Bleak House and the collection may be endangered but the gift of life remains.” The Academy Award winning director also donated to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Flames were encroaching on the actor’s neighborhood in Malibu on Saturday. He shared the view on his Instagram page and followed up with another post thanking firefighters and first responders.
As of Sunday, Jessica Simpson and her family were still being kept from their home, according to an update on her Instagram.
April posted on her Instagram story that the couple’s Malibu home had been completely burnt down. In the midst of all the turmoil, she remained positive and grateful that she and her family were all safe. Robin Thicke also posted a statement on his Instagram thanking the firefighters and fans for their support.
Rainn left his home on November 8, taking his dogs and pigs with him. After his home was spared by “a dozen” yards, Rainn Wilson has been using his platform to help reunite families (and pets) who have been separated and to spread news about the evacuations.
As we reported earlier, both the historic Paramount Ranch and the slightly less historic Bachelor Mansion have been imperiled by the fire. The Paramount Ranch sustained significant damage, and the Bachelor Mansion’s status is still unknown. The Paramount Ranch was the site of dozens of Westerns, including Deathrace 2000, Westworld, The Lake House and Doctor Quinn, and Medicine Woman. The Bachelor Mansion was the site of Chad Johnson’s weighing his lunch meat, but it’s also a real home to a real family.
