Putting aside the whole debate about wasted water, we’ve noticed another unwitting side effect of the Ice Bucket Challenge. Some celebrities' videos have provided us with glimpses into their worlds we otherwise may never have seen — specifically, their backyards. For example: Who knew that Tom Hiddleston actually lives in the quaint cottage from The Holiday? And, that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have the perfect party setup you’d envision?
Ahead, indulge in a bit of superficiality and take a Cribs-worthy gander into these celebrity abodes. Please imagine all captions being read in Robin Leach’s voice. This is:
Lifestyles of the Ice Bucket Challenge Rich and Famous.
If you can manage to tear your eyes away from his pecs and abs (that white T-shirt is really working for him), you'll note that Tom Hiddleston lives in the English cottage of your dreams. Trellis covered in ivy? Check. He can 100% promise you a rose garden, too.
This video is total cute overload. Not only is Jennifer Garner the one dumping the ice on her husband's head, their adorable kids can be heard LOL'ing at the turn of events (parents can be so silly). Ben returns the favor by throwing his wife in the pool, and my, what a nice pool it is.
A grainy glimpse behind the house of Gomez.
Chris Pratt & Anna Faris
Honestly, how do we get an invite to Star-Lord's cabana?
Oh hello, in-ground pool on bucolic estate.
May we borrow your proffered ice bucket, O?
It doesn't look like there was any actual ice in those buckets, but we barely noticed with that beautiful sun-drenched lawn in the background.
Nothin' but blue sky and palm trees...we want to go there.
Robert Downey, Jr.
Just a grown man playing with his Thor doll by himself in the pool.
You simply must tell us the name of the quarry where those stones were hewn, Kaley.
Innovators gonna innovate...on gorgeous teak docks.
Cue up the R.E.M., cause it's time for some night swimming.
A bit overgrown with opportunistic moss poking through the cobblestones; this is exactly how we envisioned the Facebook founder's backyard.
Kate Upton & Justin Verlander
These two appear to be living in Audrey's "Somewhere That's Green" fantasy from Little Shop of Horrors.
Where, pray tell, did he get those beautiful Spanish tiles?
Why yes, we will attend your alfresco cookout, V. Hudge.
Is that Necker Island we spy?
Stone Gossard from Pearl Jam
That's quite the picturesque house and dock, but for god's sake, put the check down, then pour water.
Rolling farmland and a pool — this might be our favorite yard of all.
Either they're on vacation, or Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor, and their kids actually live on the set of Jurassic Park.
That pool would be absolute perfection on a day like today.
"That's cold! That's cold! That's cold!" Yes, yes it is.
The cast and crew of Pan
This is only their temporary backyard, but how could we not include a video with Garrett Hedlund and actual pyrotechnics?
