Be the proud owner of Starwood, the private waterfront estate was home to the late, great, legendary 5-time Oscar Winning Director/Producer Michael Anderson. Some of his most famous movies include Around the World in 80 days, The Dam Busters, Orca, and Logans Run. His daughter is Laurie Holden, actress of The Walking Dead.
I met Michael back in the summer of 2012 August 9th to be exact and I was to be one of the lucky ones to have been invited to his home and be his special guest. What a beautiful day and memory spending it with Michael and his beautiful wife, Adrianne Anderson. Michael was a true gentleman full of class and charisma. We all spent the afternoon by the pool and it was one of my favourite memories that I will always remember and cherish. Michael was 90 at the time and he could walk but had a cane. When I was leaving we were all at the bottom level by the pool. I said my goodbyes, but he insisted to walk me all the way up the stairs to the front door even though he had his cane. I will never forget his true class and character.
