Actress Renee Zellweger, who co-stars with Jim Carrey in the upcoming movie "Me, Myself and Irene," has purchased a Hollywood Hills house for about $1.8 million.
Zellweger and Carrey have been dating since they met while filming the comedy, due out June 23.
The actress, 30, is probably best remembered for her role as a single mother romanced by a sports agent played by Tom Cruise in the movie "Jerry Maguire" (1996).
She also co-starred with Chris O'Donnell in "The Bachelor" (1999), and she co-starred with Meryl Streep and William Hurt in "One True Thing" (1998).
Zellweger recently signed to play Bridget Jones in the film adaptation of Helen Fielding's popular novel "Bridget Jones' Diary," about a young single woman in London.
Built in the 1960s, Zellweger's new home has three bedrooms in about 3,000 square feet. The house, which is on nearly an acre, also has a pool.
Jeeb Naiman-O'Reilly of Nelson Shelton, Beverly Hills, represented Zellweger in her purchase, and Neal Baddin of Coldwell Banker, Sunset Strip, had the listing, sources said.
The longtime Malibu Colony home of the late Ivan Goff, co-creator of the 1970s TV series "Charlie's Angels," has been listed at about $3.5 million.
Goff, who died in September at 89, and his writing partner, the late Ben Roberts, wrote 25 feature films. Among them: "White Heat" (1949) and "Man of a Thousand Faces" (1957), both starring James Cagney. Gregory Peck, Clark Gable and Doris Day were among the stars of their other movies.
Goff was a newspaperman in his native Australia before he stowed away on a ship en route to the U.S., rode the rails across America and talked his way into a job in the 1930s as a Hollywood correspondent for the London Daily Mirror.
He met Roberts during World War II when both were serving in the U.S. Army Signal Corps. After their movie-writing days, they turned to TV in the '60s and wrote the series "The Rogues," starring Dick Powell, David Niven and Charles Boyer. In 1976, they wrote the pilot for "Charlie's Angels."
Goff purchased his Malibu home in 1971. Built in 1930, the 2,000-square-foot house has four bedrooms plus a guest apartment. A beachside patio leads to a large oceanfront sun deck.
Ann Fulton at Fred Sands Estates, Malibu, has the listing.
Tony Christopher, CEO and president of Landmark Entertainment, and his wife, Lydia, have purchased a Georgian Colonial-style house in La Canada Flintridge for its $1.9-million asking price.

Entertainment attorney Bruce Thabit has listed his home on Carbon Beach in Malibu at $17 million.
He completed construction on the home about two years ago.
