Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck moving to Boston with Violet

Us Weekly reported on Wednesday that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have decided to raise their daughter Violet in Boston, rather than Los Angeles. Reportedly, they want to provide her as normal an upbringing as possible. I think I'd have to agree that they can accomplish more easily in Boston than they can in California.

I wonder how it works though, if your career is primarily based on one coast and you choose to live on another. Once you are an established actor, does it really matter where you live? Do so many of them live in LA because of the industry? Or because they just like it there? I went out to LA for a wedding last summer (I live in small town Missouri). I admit that before I went, I thought, "Why do those actors need to be paid so much money? That is ridiculous!" But when I got out there, I understood. In order to have any privacy at all, you have to have a ton of money there.

So, I guess it makes sense: Live in Boston, and fly to LA for business lunches. It's not like they have to pay LA prices to live in Boston-- so they can probably afford the plane tickets pretty easily.

I'm just guessing.

Where would you live if money were no object? Would you live somewhere like LA? I think I would, yes.
