When you live in Los Angeles, the first thing out-of-town guests want to do is "see movie stars". Watching TMZ or Entertainment Tonight, they think celebrities are everywhere and easy to spot. But, that is just not the case. Stars don't travel in packs, they don't usually hang out at Starbucks and they are rarely seen "just driving down the street". They pretty much keep to themselves and aren't thrilled by tourists asking for their autographs.
My friends know that over the years, I've met my share of movie, television and music stars, and I've even been up close and personal with a lot of them. I find that when it comes to stars and big name celebrities, what you see is what you get. If you think they'll have an attitude-- they do. If you think they'd be nice to talk to, they are. So naturally, when my friends visit, they want me to hook them up with some quality celebrity sightings, like this....
I love Jack Nicholson. He is a riot! Whenever we've been together he's either dressed like this or wearing a purple Lakers polo shirt at a basketball game. He's always cool and waves at me but he keeps a low profile-- for Jack anyway.
Steven Spielberg is a pretty quiet guy. It's hard to spot him out and about town because he usually wears a cap.... But his gentle voice gives him away.
When my man Will Smith is around you know it! He's loud and happy and friendly and the room seems to circle around him. His wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith is great too; but let me tell you, she weights about 89 pounds soaking wet! She is tiny.
It's exciting to see Elton John but I've only ever seen him at charity events when he's performing. I wonder what he wears when he's hanging around the house?
Brad and Angelina make a stunning couple in person-- Odd, but stunning. I've run into Brad on numerous occasions around town too and let me tell you, as cute as he is on the big screen, he is to die for in person! Put that man in jeans and a tee shirt and I'm swooning.
This is our Governor. Kinda makes your feel proud to be from California, huh? I see him all over town-- in and out of costume, war paint and the crazy eyeball. It's shocking that even looking like this he couldn't get a California State Budget passed on time. But he's a friendly guy. Maria, his wife, is terrific too.
Of course if you believe any of this all I can say is FOOLED YOU! You can see these stars and more anytime at the new Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Hollywood, CA
That's my city. Hope your Sunday is great!
