Between the COVID-19 pandemic, New York's lockdown to contain it, and the economic fallout, the city's celebrities spent the past few months lying relatively low as far as real estate is concerned. But now that the city is reopening and face-to-face apartment showings have resumed, stars of screen and business alike are listing their apartments, picking up new property, and reporting sales.

Luckily, her Park Avenue duplex is big enough to hold all her awards. She has listed the apartment, having relocated to London, but has not ruled out a return to New York.
