Valhalla Entertainment CEO and heavyweight producer Gale Anne Hurd and screenwriter/director Jonathan Hensleigh are penthouse owners these days, after dropping $4.5 million on a 4,300-square-foot unit in The Montana, the stylish new residential building in downtown Pasadena.
With three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and luxurious in-built amenities like high ceilings, minimalist fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace featuring views of the skyline to the west and mountains to the east, it’s well worth the price—and the $2,200 a month in homeowners association costs.
The HOA fees also entitle Hurd and Hensleigh to a gauntlet of services that include an indoor swimming pool, a fireplace-equipped lobby, a number of landscaped and ivy-draped garden lounges, on-site parking and an exercise room.
Hurd’s production credits stretch back thirty years, beginning with her work on Terminator in 1984. She’s also had a hand in the Alien franchise, Dante’s Peak, Armageddon and both Hulk movies from the aughts. She is currently Executive Producer of The Walking Dead, AMC’s horror drama series about a zombie takeover, and serves as Recording Secretary to the Producer’s Guild of America.
Hensleigh’s career features writing credits for 1995’s Jumanji, Die Hard with a Vengeance and Armageddon. He also worked as a Producer for Nic Cage vehicles Con Air and Gone in 60 Seconds and wrote and directed 2004’s The Punisher.
In 2007, the couple got $11.5 million for a 13,500-square-foot Pasadena mansion from former boxer Oscar de la Hoya.
