Red carpets, award shows, magazine covers and movie screens - it's not often that we see celebrities outside these circumstances. Though chances are slim, in our celebrity-obsessed culture, everyone still has a wish list of stars they'd love to meet one day. What about living next door to a celebrity? Would that list change?
This December, in the seventh annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey, we asked Americans which celebrities they would most like to have as their neighbor, as well as those with whom they wouldn't dare share a fence.
Most Desirable Neighbors for 2014
On top of a laundry list of other accomplishments this year, comedian and late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon landed "Saturday Night Live" its highest ratings in 2 years when he hosted last week's holiday episode with Justin Timberlake. Now, he gets to add "Most Desirable Celebrity Neighbor."
With 11 percent of the vote, Fallon was the top choice for a neighbor in the coming year. His popularity was highest among young adults surveyed (14 percent) and slightly more popular among females (12 percent) compared with males (10 percent). For those on the East Coast, you may have more luck borrowing a cup of sugar from the Fallon family. In 2011, he purchased a stunning 1800s farmhouse-style home that sits on more than 2 acres of Sagaponack, NY real estate.
"It's been a landmark year for Jimmy Fallon. He had his first baby, headlined a successful comedy tour and was named Jay Leno's successor to 'The Tonight Show.' He carries a positive, funny and relatable vibe, which people would love to have in a neighbor," said Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky.
