According to the Los Angeles Times, Vince Vaughn has purchased former University of Southern California football coach Lane Kiffin’s Manhattan Beach home.
Vaughn reportedly paid $6.5 million for the sprawling 7,308-square-foot mansion. The six-bedroom, seven-bath home sits on a 1/2-acre lot and features a three-car garage, swimming pool, spa, guest house, and outdoor kitchen.
Just last year, Vaughn purchased what has been called “Southern California’s least offensive, unobtrusive, and numbingly traditional house:” a five-bedroom 5,563-square-foot colonial in the Los Angeles suburb of La Cañada Flintridge. Vaughn paid $3.925 million for the home.
Kiffin, 38, recently relocated from Los Angeles to the Tuscaloosa, AL area. He was fired from his position as head coach for the USC Trojans in September 2013. In January, he signed on as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide.
Vaughn may be making real estate acquisitions based upon the advice of his wife. In 2010 he married Canadian real estate agent Kyla Weber. Daughter Locklyn Kyla Vaughn was born in December 2010 and son Vernon Lindsay Vaughn was born in August 2013.
Vaughn is well-known for his roles in Wedding Crashers, The Dilemma, and The Internship. He will star in Business or Pleasure with Sienna Miller and Tom Wilkinson this fall.
When he’s not acting and acquiring real estate, Vaughn has been known to get involved in politics.
When asked in late 2013 if he considered himself a conservative, Vaughn answered without hesitation:
“I do, yeah…I mean I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been more conservative than not.”
Vaughn supported Paul in the 2008 and 2012 elections and is active in the Libertarian movement.
“I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And you start to realize…when you go back and start to look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to, you know, sort of think and pursue what they have interest in.”
