The 4,200-square-foot house was built in 1978 and had been on and off the market since 1995 -- and was listed just two years ago for nearly $15 million, the newspaper said Saturday.
The identity of the buyer was not revealed.
The property has a guest house and screening room included with the four bedrooms, one of which includes floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Pacific.
The deal was struck as Russell was starring in the upcoming comedy film, "The Art of the Steal."
