The Bling Ring (2013)

In the 2013 Sofia Coppola film “The Bling Ring,” a group of teenagers begin robbing celebrity homes.  One of the homes targeted by the characters in the film is that of reality television star Audrina Patridge.  Rebecca and Marc, played by Katie Chang and Israel Broussard respectively, locate the home by search engine.  The address seen in the film is only slightly altered from the actual address where the scene was shot.

The house can be found on St Ives Pl, but the view from the film is actually looking down from Cordell Dr.  The entire robbery is shown in a single shot from this road.  However, since filming completed, remodeling to the homes on Cordell Dr has caused the view to become more obscured.

This Is 40 (2012)

In the 2012 comedy “This Is 40,” a spin-off of “Knocked Up,” the story follows the life of a married couple, Pete and Debbie, played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann.  The same house was used for the couple in both films and can be found in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.  The property is gated, with a long wall running along the front, so visibility is difficult.  From the right angle, however, it can still be seen.
