Joshua Jackson Finally Lifts The Veil Off His Mysterious L.A. Home

Often, after attaining success in life people want to take a feel of where they started from. Reconnecting to their origin gives them a sense of belonging. It’s a deep feeling only the ones who’ve already tasted the best in life can experience. Maybe that’s what’s happening in Dawson’s Creek star, Joshua Jackson.

According to Mr. Porter, Joshua Jackson has bought his childhood home and is now raising his 15-month-old daughter there. Guess he wants to pass on the same values that he grew up with.

Joshua Jackson’s Best Kept Secret

If you think Joshua Jackson has only been hiding his marriage, you’re dead wrong. The actor has also managed to keep his current dwelling a secret for a long time, but thanks to his recent interview to Mr. Porter magazine, his fans know a few things about his home-sweet-home. 

As per the interview, Jackson bought the Topanga, California, house in 2001. It’s the same place where he lived for the first eight years of his life, before moving to Vancouver with his family. Today, the actor stays there with his better half Jodie Turner-Smith and his little daughter Janie.

Jackson revealed that when he purchased the house, he was surprised to find a memento from his young time still intact. He described that he wasn’t expecting to see the dragon mural in his former room. Quoting the previous owner, he said the landlord believed this mural meant something, and that one day, someone would come back to claim it. 

Though he didn’t specify anything about the designs of the house, he did share the special connection he feels with the place. He said that acquiring the house was a healing experience for him. The Little Fires Everywhere star explained his father was neither a good husband nor a good father. He left them in the middle of nowhere, but that house always reminded him of the good times they spent there. 

A unique proposal

Before this interview, Jackson appeared on The Tonight Show and shared some details of how his marriage came to be. He said on New Year’s Eve, while he was strolling on the beach of Nicaragua with his then girlfriend Turner-Smith, she got down on one knee! Turner-Smith had rehearsed everything from the lines to the way she would ask him. And when she popped the question, Jackson knew exactly what to say.

The actor added though all parents find their children cute, his daughter is the cutest (aww!).
