Hugh Laurie’s family plans their move to the states

Hugh Laurie

House star Hugh Laurie will reunite with his family when his wife and children move from their native Britain to join him in Los Angeles after spending four years apart.

Laurie’s wife, Jo, and their three teenage children have reportedly made plans to move into a new $4 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills.

The news comes just days after the star took in a $400,000-per-episode pay raise – making him one of the highest paid actors on the small screen.

A source tells Star: “Hugh was determined not to disrupt the children. Then a family conference changed everything. Jo and the kids just couldn’t bear to see Hugh looking so miserable every time he leaves after visiting them in London. They couldn’t carry on dealing with a long-distance relationship. In the end, Jo took control and made the decision to move.”

The couple, who married in 1989, is parents to Rebecca, 15, Bill, 17 and Charlie, 19.

Hugh Laurie wants to be lazy & is hoping for a summer strike

Hugh Laurie

House star Hugh Laurie is quietly hoping for an actor’s strike this summer, so he can take some time off.

The Brit confesses he is lazy and loved the three-month break the recent Writer’s Guild strike afforded him.

Actor’s union the SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) and studio bosses are currently negotiating to avoid a second bout of industrial action – and Laurie won’t be too disappointed if the talks fail.

He jokes, “I am worried that there won’t be an actor’s strike? Of course not. (But) little tiny strike every now and again is good. I’m very lazy.”

When asked what he did during the writer’s strike, Laurie replied, “I did absolutely nothing. I was like a lizard on a rock. I struck a pose and held it for three months.”
