Zsa Zsa Gabor and husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt have turned to Hollywood for a little help in selling their home.
When Zsa Zsa Gabor and husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt were unable to sell their home, the two turned to Hollywood for a little help. They rented out their place to the movie industry, reports Zillow.
The home can be seen in Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning movie "Argo" with John Goodman and Alan Arkin.
Gabor's home appears during the scenes featuring the producer, played by Arkin, who lives there in the film.
The home has been on and off the market for the past few years, with pricing going up and down, too. Gabor and von Anhalt were slated to lose the mansion to foreclosure, but in a last-ditch effort to save the property, von Anhalt took to Facebook and begged for his fans to help. Someone stepped in to secure a $1.5 million personal loan, which von Anhalt used to pay off the mortgage. Von Anhalt has a year to pay back the loan.
And the two aren't stopping at "Argo." Matt Damon is starring in a film about Liberace that will reportedly be filmed in the house. Something like this can bring in around $1,000 to $2,000 a day when it's being set up and as much as $3,500 a day once filming begins. It's being estimated that for the Liberace film, Gabor and von Anhalt will receive around $70,000.
Update: the house has just recently sold. Wonder if it will continue to be a staple in Hollywood films!
