Now that the Fox series is ending in May, “House“ doc Hugh Laurie, 52, is about to become reacquainted with his family. Since 2004, Hugh has been living for at least nine months a year in Los Angeles while his wife Jo and their 3 children remained in the UK. Several times they considered moving to LA, but the children loved their school and they didn’t know how long the show would survive. After eight years of incredible popularity, daddy became the highest paid actor in a drama, pulling in $700,000 a week. Soon, he’s going home. Hopefully, living apart is not the reason the 23 year marriage has been a success.
“House” star Hugh Laurie is making the most of living in Hollywood by driving around in his bright red 1966 Ford Galaxie convertible. Laurie has a collection of vehicles to entertain himself because his family is back in England while the kids finish their education. Sure, the car is a gas guzzler, but Laurie takes home $400,000 an episode for his series.
“House” star Hugh Laurie started filming the show in 2004, and his family stayed in the UK so the kids wouldn’t have to leave school. His family wanted to wait and see if the show was a success before uprooting. Numerous Emmys and six years later the show is a bona fide hit, but Hugh is still living alone in Hollywood. However he DID move out of his West Hollywood apartment into a large home in the Hollywood Hills. Everyone expected the family to move in, but they just visit! When they’re together Hugh and his petite wife Jo love riding his motorcycle, and seem happy. What’s the deal here?

“House” doc Hugh Laurie wants the world to know that it’s his TV character who walks with a cane, not HIM. He took advantage of the California sunshine by riding his Triumph motorcycle to Orso for lunch. Female fans were impressed. Not even a parking ticket could rob him of his good mood.
24 Hour Fitness, located in West Hollywood, is not a fancy gym. In fact it’s one of the least expensive gyms available and it adheres to a no frills policy. If the showers are hot, it’s a good day. Hand dryers have replaced paper towels and the Jacuzzis are packed with heavy-set elderly people. Still, it’s located in the heart of the gay mecca, Boy’s Town, so it’s a gayish crowd. (” Sex police” patrol the men’s locker room.) So it WAS a surprise to see a successful multiple Emmy winning actor nonchalantly working out on the weight machines. “House” doc Hugh Laurie has been voted one of the sexiest guys on TV, so he’s obliged to KEEP that trim build, although he’s not spending a lot of money to do so. He did his workout alone and left without causing a stir.
