Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan left a note outside his LA mansion directed to the homeless people who sleep outside his property, it has been claimed.
The 81-year-old currently lives in a $3.5million (£2.4m) home in Venice Beach, with homelessness spiking in the area recently due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He reportedly stepped outside his house on Sunday and pinned a note to his garage, which read: ‘THIS IS MY HOUSE NOT YOURS’.
To emphasise his point, the actor underlined the words ‘my house’.
TMZ states he has since taken the sign down.
The number of homeless people in LA has risen to more than 66,000 people last January – from around 40,000 in 2011.
Paul’s local area in Venice has seen a huge rise in figures recently, with residents demanding action from authorities.
The Hollywood star relocated to the US in 2005 but is desperate to return to his home in Australia as soon as possible when the coronavirus pandemic is over.
‘I can’t wait for this stupid disease to go away so I can get out,’ he confessed during an appearance on the News Corp podcast Evenin’ Viewers last October.
‘I’m like a kangaroo in a Russian zoo – I don’t belong here.’
Speaking just last week in a chat with Sunrise, Paul added that he was ‘desperately homesick’ and looking forward to finally returning to Australia, leaving his life in LA behind.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Paul’s reps for a comment.
