Celebs? Like whom?!
Well, we are fortunate to live and work in a town with lots of motion picture and television activity.
Just yesterday I saw Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rosdale with thier baby at the Calabassas farmer's market- They walked right by me, and I could have said something but I didn't. We just exchanged smiles.
The same happened with Kate Beckinsale and Christopher Walken at work just before Comic-Con. How hard was it for me to keep my cool around Christopher Walken!! I did talk to Kevin Bacon when I saw him looking lost last year. I was actually able to point him to his building. He thanked me and was on his way.
Anyway- what about those people who we lost our cool with and actually got an autograph or picture!

Senator Ted Kennedy We attended a fundraising benefit for Senetor Kennedy that was of all things, tied to the Star Wars exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Mr. Kennedy seemed to have personal ties with the president of the school, but was there mainly to stress the importance of the federal student loan program. Maybe he was there to check out the Star Wars costumes too- because really, how many of us Californians would be voting for him next november in the Senatorial elections? We knew he was cool :) At any rate, we did manage to dig up enough nerve to get this shot with him just as he was getting into his car. He even shook Cris' hand and asked for a copy of the picture!
Johnny Depp. Here's a fun little story. So here we were, Me happily working away at a friend's prop shop working on new costumes and Kim at home studying for finals when the friend says- "so do you wanna go meet the cast of Star Wars?" Well it was a tough choice because Kim had her papers coming and we didn't exactly have passes but eventually we said- what the heck- lets do it!!
So we piled in the car and made our way down to the Nickelodeon kids' choice awards hosted by Ben Stiller. Through some wheeling and dealing we were able to score some crew badges and the first thing we see once we get there is Will Ferrel backstage with no shirt on leaning out of his trailer. (little did we know that he had just been green slimed) We went in and watched the show.
We had gotten there late due to the traffic, and just missed the Star Wars skit. BUT we did get to see Will Smith and at the end of the show the special guest turned out to be none other than Johnny Depp! (kim's boyfriend) That would have been good enough- but it gets better. While hanging out backstage after the show to try to catch the Star Wars people, Cris happened to see a large crowd gathering and people coming away with signed photos. (apparently the autograph hound business is booming because these people came equipped!) Well we DID happen to have our camera, so we got Kim up close and managed to snap a couple of photos :) Enjoy!
