As no one will be surprised to hear, the fabulously wealthy producer has also amassed an outsized amount of real estate over the years. Properties in his portfolio include a 400-acre ranch in Ojai, a 1,200-acre farm in Kentucky, and the two-acre Harry Cohn estate in Beverly Hills, which Bruckheimer shelled out $23 million for in 2013.
