michael dellSure, we talk about the homes that celebrities live in — how eco-friendly they are (or not) — and what new additions they’ve made to reduce their footprints. Talking and seeing, however, are two different things; and using the wonders of Google Satellite we can come to our own conclusions.

Thanks to a site called Google Earth Hacks, a large array of celebrity homes have been compiled for your perusal. From Oprah Winfrey’s sprawling Santa Barbara Estate to Will Smith’s ginormous home (which appears to have solar panels) in the LA hills. To Orpah’s credit, her property in Santa Barbara seems to have the largest amount of “green space” left in the city — so kudos to nature, bummer for the rest of you denizens.

Moving on, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s new home in New Orleans looks decidedly cozy, while Elton John’s pad is too large to describe, and Michael Dell’s park-like estate at the very least features solar on the long entryway.

When you put it all together, most of these people make Al Gore’s mansion look economy size.

Jerry Seinfeld’s residence, Trumps many abodes, Nicolas Cage’s castle, and many more after the jump.
