By Jose Lambiet, Gossip Extra EXCLUSIVE - Oscar nominee Tommy Lee Jones wants out of Wellington — a decade after he bought 50 acres and built a polo ranch, Gossip Extra has learned exclusively.
The star of Men in Black, who’s nominated as best supporting actor for Lincoln, has quietly put the property on the market for a whopping $26.75 million!
Records show Jones, 66, bought the land in two separate transactions in 2002 for a total $4.62 million.
A source close to Jones said the actor now prefers to play polo at home in San Saba, Texas, and his other place in California.
“He’s got three huge properties,” said the source. “He decided to get rid of one, and he picked Wellington.”
