Abstract

The private lives of film stars are strangely contiguous with their roles. Consequently, a film star's home becomes an ambiguous ecology: part dwelling, part location. Hollywood's domestic staging in promotional/publicity photo shoots exposes the semifictional condition of the mechanism of stardom and suggests a cross-pollination between the art of the film industry and the life of suburban Los Angeles. Further, a star's masculinity as displayed through décor provides a measure of Hollywood's gendering of domestic space.
