Stu’s House from “The Hangover”

One location that I have been on the lookout for for over a year now is the adorable bungalow where Stu Price (aka Ed Helms) and his girlfriend Melissa (aka Rachael Harris) lived in fave movie The Hangover.  I absolutely fell in love with Stu’s home the moment I saw it in the flick and, thanks to its Craftsman-style architecture, became convinced that it was most likely located in the Pasadena area.  Thankfully, I had spotted an address number of 1325 on the front of the house while watching the movie, so as soon as I got home from the theatre I immediately began searching all of the 1300 blocks in Pasadena for the property.  When that failed, I moved my hunt first to South Pasadena and then to Altadena, but came up completely empty-handed on both ends.  I was still absolutely convinced, though, that the property had to somewhere in the San Gabriel Valley.  And oh, how wrong I was!  Enter Mike, from MovieShotsLA, who decided to help me in my Hangover quest by searching for the home outside of the Pasadena city limits.  And sure enough, it wasn’t long before he found it, in a place I never would have even thought to look – West Hollywood.  So, a couple of weeks ago, after our tour of Paramount Studios, I took fellow stalkers Lavonna, Beth, Debbie, and Connie, who were all in town visiting from Ohio, right on over to WeHo to do some Hangover stalking.

The house was used in the very brief, but extremely funny scene in which Phil Wenneck (aka Bradley Cooper), Alan Garner (aka Zach Galifianakis), and Doug Billings (aka Justin Bartha) pick up Stu before heading to Las Vegas, where Doug’s bachelor party is being held.  And I am very happy to report that the incredibly picturesque home looks exactly the same in person as it did onscreen.

As you can see in the above screen captures and interior images of the property (which I snagged off of a real estate listing that I found online yesterday), the actual interior of the home was also used in the filming of The Hangover.  The areas used include the kitchen;

and the living room – the fireplace of which you can just barely see in the above screen capture.

The window where Stu and Melissa sat in the scene is located just to the left of the abode’s front door.  Unfortunately, though, the real estate website did not include an interior photograph of that exact spot.  Nor did the listing make any reference to the home’s cinematic history, which is a total abomination in my eyes!  I mean, come on, did the real estate agent honestly not realize that mentioning the property’s appearance in one of the biggest movies of 2009 would add value to the home?  Sigh!  Why do I have to think of everything?  😉

The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,746-square foot dwelling, which was originally built in 1919, was sold this past August for a cool $1.2 million.  Interestingly enough, while searching property records for the house yesterday, I came across information that former Beverly Hills, 90210-actress Lindsay Price and her then-husband, producer Shawn Pillar, owned the home from October 2003 through March 2006.  So incredibly cool!

On a Hangover side note – Before meeting up with me a couple of weeks ago, fellow stalkers Lavonna, Debbie, Connie, and Beth went on a tour of Warner Brothers Studios, where The Hangover 2 is currently being filmed, and while there they spotted both Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis.  The actors were being shuttled around on a golf cart at the time and while Zach tried to shield his face from view, Bradley Cooper was nice enough to turn around and wave to the girls.  So cute!  :)

Big THANK YOU to Mike, from MovieShotsLA, for finding this location and to fellow stalkers Lavonna and Beth for loaning me the above photographs of Zach and Bradley to publish in this post!  :)

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  :)

Stalk It: Stu Price’s house from The Hangover is located at 1325 North Ogden Drive in Hollywood.  You can check out the home’s real estate listing here.

    Another great find to put on my “to do” list. I wish that I had the energy and drive that you have to get my location pics taken. I have over 450 locations to shoot and the list doesn’t seem to get any shorter. Always checking your entrys. Keep up the great work!

    As the current owner of, “The Hangover House” I can confirm that it is in Los Angeles not in West Hollywood. LOL! I’m just a crazy for pop culture as all of you are. Glad you had fun and also happy the mums were still alive when you took your picture. We love the house!
    Happy hunting,
    Dan

  3. Hey Lindsay. Great post! But, just for the record, the 1325 N. Ogden Drive address is NOT in West Hollywood (since it’s north of Fountain Avenue), but in the neighborhood of Hollywood in the city of Los Angeles. :-)

    Lucille Ball’s first house when she moved to Hollywood was down the street at 1344 North Ogden. I stalked that a few weeks ago…Now I need to go back. Thanks!

      Lisa,
      Funny you mention that…when I got back to hotel after going to Hang Over house I text Lindsay that one of my books listed that address as one Lucille Ball rented. I think she moved her grandparents out and they lived there too.
