Even for Los Angeles, it's an impressive star-studded cast. Roger Moore owned the Beverly Hills Post Office Spanish hacienda in the '80s and '90s, then Candice Bergen bought it, and now the new owner is Cameron Diaz. The property was quietly shopped around to agents as a pocket listing for $10.25 million, but the sales price has not yet been reported on the L.A. County Tax Assessor's website. Occupying about 3 acres in a gated community, the compound has a 5,000-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and four bathrooms and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to online marketing information.

The gift went on to serve him well through seven outings as James Bond.

The man who Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry L. Nichols said provided explosives used in the blast denied Wednesday that he had any role, and said the attempt to link him to the plot fit Nichols' demeanor as someone who "hated everybody."
