By on January 5, 2012 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Actor Hugh Jackman has had huge success in Hollywood, on Broadway and with his charity work. He is also apparently a successful haggler, when he bought his massive Triplex in New York for around $21 million, almost half the original asking price of $40 million. The three floors were bought by billionaire Bill Joy, founder of Sun Microsystems, for $17.6 million in 2002. He then spent millions updating it into a triplex home and was originally asking for $40 million. Bill Joy lowered the price to $33 million just before Hugh Jackman entered negotiations for it, who came out with a final price of around $21 million.
