Did You Know Leonardo DiCaprio’s Malibu Bungalow Was Filled With Titanic Décor for a While?

Titanic’s world dominance in the late 90s was a global phenomenon unlike any other- and it gets weirder the more you think back on the details of the movie. However, one epic thing that the movie gave us was the epic performance by one of Hollywood’s best gift to cinema, Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s safe to say very few actors have a career as diverse as his.

Titanic has gone down as one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, which is exactly why this story, in particular, caught our attention.

A House and A Fun Story

Apparently, his fans weren’t the only ones who had countless posters of the actor lining their walls back in the day. In fact, DiCaprio’s Malibu beach house- yes, the one that’s up for sale now- had a poster of the actor hung up and was filled with much Titanic memorabilia. This juicy little tidbit was made public only recently on the “Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast where Megan Weaver, the Flipping Out star, was the guest.

At the time, Weaver was working for DiCaprio, and his mother, Irmelin, had permitted her to stay at the beach house for a weekend with her boyfriend. She says walking in, not in her wildest dreams would she have imagined seeing what she did. Everything was TitanicTitanic poster, Titanic towels, Titanic robes, Titanic everything.

That day, Megan was destined to get two memorable things- a free beach house and a fun story.

A little disclaimer, though, DiCaprio didn’t decorate the house by himself. In fact, he rarely ever went there, and his mom mostly did the looking after.

Inside the Beach House

Not long after the release of Titanic, the beach house met with its new owner for the price of $1.6 million. The 1,765-square-foot property encompasses three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Despite it not being a primary or full-time residence, it has been updated to include modern furnishing and top-notch appliances throughout the years.

The ceilings have been painted white. The whitewashed floors are bestrewed with vintage rugs. Highlights of the gorgeous kitchen include marble countertops, a herringbone backsplash, and brass finishes. There is a little divide between the outdoors and indoors- the sun deck offering a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.

Wrapping It Up

Back in 2016, the bungalow briefly hit the market for $11 million. Shortly, however, the property was relisted as a rental, with a $25000 rent. Thanks to the security and the fact that it sits within a gated community, peeking eyes are no worry for the residents.
