Although Oscar season just ended, avid filmgoers and movie star fans need not wait for the next red carpet event to get a brush with fame. Airbnb is now making it easy to hunt down and book a home with a Tinseltown connection. 

“Meeting celebrities is cool, but it's way more interesting to live like one," says Amy Curtis-McIntyre, chief marketing officer of Airbnb whose half million listings include a choice of abodes that were either inhabited by movie stars, or used as the set for a Hollywood film or TV series.
