Jack Nicholson is selling a plot of land where his house burned down.

'The Departed' actor's 1,300-square-foot Hollywood Hills house went up in flames back in September 2011, and the damage was so bad he razed the plot with a bulldozer. The plot is listed at $595,000, TMZ reports.

Before the fire Jack - estimated to be worth some $400 million - had been renting out the property which stood on it. He originally bought the plot in 1975 for just $49,000, so could stand to make a considerable profit.

Jack, 75, is not the only actor who's had trouble with their house burning down recently. Robert De Niro and his wife Grace Hightower were left homeless by a fire at their home in Central West Park, New York City, caused by a lint build-up in their clothes dryer at the couple's luxury apartment.

As a thank you to the firefighters who tackled the blaze, the couple laid on lunch from Robert's Tribeca Grill restaurant and hung out with them.

A source said: ''Robert De Niro took pictures with the guys, and got a full tour of the firehouse.

''The food was a huge spread with two servers, meatballs, eggplant sandwiches and more.''
