‘This is my house…’ Crocodile Dundee Paul Hogan goes off on homeless camping at Cali mansion

The star of the “Crocodile Dundee” film franchise is apparently sending a message to the homeless population that has engulfed his Los Angeles-area neighborhood to keep out or, metaphorically, to get off his lawn.

Actor Paul Hogan reportedly pinned a note on the front door of his $3.5 million home in Venice, Cal., that reads “THIS IS MY HOUSE NOT YOURS,” according to the Daily Mail.

Hogan, 81, said in a recent interview with the Sunrise on 7 Australian TV show that he is “desperately homesick” to return to his home country and that he hardly goes anywhere and is mostly hunkering down at home.

“The minute I can get on a plane without being locked in a hotel for two weeks, I’m back,” he said, referring to a mandatory COVID-related quarantine for arrivals.

Los Angeles County has been a hotspot for the coronavirus, but cases are dropping, and the county has now moved into the least restrictive tier for the first time in the pandemic.

A local politician and neighbor purportedly likened the area where Hogan lives to a hell on earth, adding that “his house is like a fortress, and it needs to be. I can see why [he] wants to move out,” the Daily Mail reported.

Hogan — who also achieved notoriety for the “shrimp on the barbie” TV commercials that promoted Australian tourism — has resided in L.A. for about 20 years.

Venice was once an upscale area; Hogan currently lives there with his 22-year-old son Chance.

The deterioration of the overall quality of life in California population centers, which includes, but is not limited to, rising crime along with rampant vagrancy and open drug abuse, is likely one of the reasons why Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing a recall election later this year.

It also explains why many taxpayers are abandoning the once Golden State for Texas, Tennessee, Florida and elsewhere in the red-state universe.

The well-known Venice Beach boardwalk, in particular, has become a crime-ridden homeless encampment.

Earlier this month, residents sent a letter to city and county officials that read, in part, that “Venice’s world-famous beach and boardwalk are crippled. Local children are refusing to come to the beach because they’re frightened by what they’ve witnessed. Seniors who live on or near the boardwalk are terrified of walking in their own neighborhoods,” Fox News reported.

Separately, last summer when asked for his opinion about then-President Donald Trump by an Australian TV interviewer, Hogan provided this irreverent response that sounded like he wasn’t on the MAGA team.

“From a very selfish point of view, he’s always been one of my favorites. I mean, he’s right up there with Caligula, Mussolini, remember the great Idi Amin. He’s in that category. He’s the most entertaining politician of the last 50 years. As long as they don’t let him touch anything.”
