Actor Vince Vaughn has taken such a shine to Chicago since filming his upcoming romantic comedy The Break Up there, he's ditching Los Angeles to move to the Illinois city.

Vaughn spent much of the summer (05) in the Windy City with Aniston working on the film, and since returning to Los Angeles, he's sold his Los Feliz home for nearly $4 million (GBP2.2 million).

The actor, who plans to use Chicago as his base of operations for a while, influenced the decision to have his movie The Break Up filmed in Chicago, where he was raised.

Vaughn, 35, had owned four-bedroom Los Angeles home since 1991.
