Three burglars - two female and one male - were caught on her mansion's surveillance tape. LiLo Twittered after the break-in: «that's how i know it was not a robbery. Electronics weren't taken... just things that a certain old friend knew meant a lot to me».

One of his most prized possessions - a 1950s Rolex Milgauss worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger - was stolen from his home in the Hollywood Hills.

On May 8, the Los Angeles home of Rachel Bilson was robbed and her closet was hit especially hard.

In 2004, eight pieces of jewelry were nearly stolen from Ozzy Osbourne's home when the singer was sound asleep.

Ozzy said at the time, «I'm happy in one respect because it could have got really ugly and I'm just happy no one got injured».

This sounds like the plot of a movie, but Charlie Chaplin's body was actually stolen from a Switzerland cemetery near the hills of Lake Geneva.
