In June, action pic hunk Jason Statham officially listed for a tetch less than $9 million the 1920s Mediterranean in the Hollywood foothills that he bought from Ben Stiller in 2011 for $7.35 million — and in July, he sold the place for $9.2 million to “The Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki.

Tobey Maguire realized a nearly $2 million windfall on a six-bedroom residence in L.A.’s low-key but high-cost Brentwood area that he bought from Ricki Lake in early 2014 for $8.45 million and sold just over a year later for $10.4 million to nutrition-bar moguls Ronald and Shannan Penna. Lucky Jonah Hill made out like a real estate bandit on both coasts: He sold his Los Angeles abode for $650,000 more than its $3 million asking price, and off-loaded his New York City pied-a-terre at a $400,000 profit. Julia Roberts also earned a pretty penny in the Big Apple when she dumped a 2,400-square-foot condo in Greenwich Village for $850,000 more than its $4.5 million asking price.
