The recent trend of moving from one coast to another is not new, but it has been more popular in the past few years. Long-distance moves are a unique experience that comes with their own set of challenges and experiences. Some people choose to use professional movers, while others opt for do-it-yourself services. The latter can be risky and time-consuming if you’re not careful. This blog post will talk about three celebrities who have made long-distance moves look easy!
1. Sandra Bullock
The 2012 Academy Award winner decided to relocate from Atlanta, Georgia, to Austin, Texas. She dealt with an awful high school experience in her hometown, and she never felt like it was home. Her ultimate goal was to become a performer, so she had no choice but to move halfway across the country for higher education. Without any family or friends nearby, a young Bullock had no choice but to make the long-distance move independently.
After many auditions and a successful career, Sandra decided it was time to find a new home in Austin with her then-boyfriend, now-husband, “Jesse James.” She sold all of her belongings and made the big move from Atlanta to Texas. It was a long and risky move for Bullock, but she got the house of her dreams in Austin, and we think it was all worth it!
2. Justin Timberlake
The Grammy Award-winner once said: “I grew up in Memphis until I was about eight, then moved to Tennesse. “For me, Nashville felt like home. It was the first time I felt like I could be myself.” That’s why many people were shocked when JT announced he was moving to Los Angeles.
What most fans don’t know is this wasn’t his first long-distance move! Justin moved from Tennessee to New York for a starring role on “Saturday Night Live.” He spent five years in New York, so he had experience with this kind of move.
When Justin made the big announcement, many media outlets said it was because his wife, Jessica Biel, wanted to live in Los Angeles. But JT also told “Entertainment Weekly” that New York just no longer felt like home and that the time he spent there didn’t feel real.
He’s still heavily involved in the music industry, but he also spends time doing charity work. His foundation, “The Justin Timberlake Foundation,” is dedicated to encouraging healthy lifestyles for children and has already raised over $5 million!
3. Jay-Z and Beyonce (From the USA to France)
The bold-faced power couple’s love for each other is enviable, as they seem to be living a dream life. They have been together since 2002, got married in 2008, and now have a baby girl. The family also owns a big house in the countryside of Paris, which Madonna previously rented. Their love seems to be incorruptible, but recently there have been rumors of Jay-Z cheating on Beyonce. We are not sure whether this move by the rapper was intended to get away from his alleged mistress, or is it something else entirely?
People move to cities, states, and even countries for different reasons. For some, it is the lure of the big city, while for others, it is career opportunities. This trend has become more popular in recent years because of people’s ever-increasing need to travel abroad for their job or education. As long as you are willing to be flexible, you can make any move look easy. If these celebrities can make long-distance moving look easy, you can do it too! All you need is to plan your move well so that the disruption in your life is minimal.
