January 20, 2016 It is really strange seeing this B+ list model soon to be B list mostly movie actress go from her A+ list boyfriend to some guy who has great grandchildren.
A few days back, the Facebooks was a’flitter with news that Nicolas Cage was chowing down at East Austin’s french bistro Justine’s Brasserie.

I still haven’t figured out why Nic Cage was in Austin or if he is even still here, hiding behind a dumpster and shouting unintelligible words at homeless people for fun.
Theory is he’s in the new Terrence Malick film shooting here (that is every Austinite’s answer for when they spot a celebrity), but I can’t imagine Malick casting someone like Cage for his highly intellectualized dramas. The Cage spotting got me thinking about all the celebrities that live in Austin or enjoy frequenting Austin.
There are a Texas or went to UT or shot a movie here and have always had a fondness for the capital city.
Other celebs, like us regular folk, caught wind it was the next hip city and decided to set up digs here.
Tennis star Andy Roddick and his model wife, Brooklyn Decker, live in a fancy-ass equipped with hotel-style carpeting and questionable artwork.
Lance Armstrong proudly calls Austin home both for himself and for the Lance Armstrong Foundation (he owns other homes in Aspen and the Texas Hill Country).
Willie Nelson not only lives in the suburbs of Austin, his ponytails are featured on official Austin t-shirts at the Austin Visitor’s Center.
Below is a list of celebs you will often see milling about the ATX. Several celebrities own houses here including Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant (rumor has it he likes to barter the price of cheese at Whole Foods), and Austin lovin’ Billy Bob Thornton, UT grad Matthew Mc Conaughey and Dennis Quaid.
I can’t confirm Quaid’s current housing status for his Austin realtor wife, Kimberly Buffington, recently filed for divorce, then retracted it.
