Warning! Celeb sightings at the Hollywood Wax Museum ahead! Read on about Hollywood Joseph’s latest encounters!
Me with Mila Kunis!
A talking teddy bear? Really? When I first saw the trailer for Ted – coming out tomorrow – I couldn’t believe one of my fave actresses, Mila Kunis, would be starring in such a wacky film. But with comedies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and That ‘70s Show under her belt, I’m betting this will be another humorous hit.
After meeting Mila AND Seth MacFarlane (the movie’s director) in person, I’m adding Ted to the movie queue!
And yes, I did meet the stars thanks to my fantastic job at the Hollywood Wax Museum. It’s always great to talk with our visitors (like YOU) and see how much fun they’re having at the Wax Museum and its neighbor, the Guinness World Records Museum.
Turns out that Hollywood celebrities love visiting us too! Mila was doing a scavenger hunt in Hollywood when she stopped by to ask for Wax Museum tickets as part of the game. What are the odds?! Of course, I jumped at the chance to snap a picture of the beautiful actress! Don’t let those looks fool you, she is super cool and so down-to-earth!
Seth MacFarlane and Adam West
Then, Seth MacFarlane made an appearance at Adam West’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Ceremony in front of the Hollywood Guinness World Records Museum. Move over Christian Bale, Adam is the original Batman dating back to the ‘60s. How lucky am I to see so many celebs during work hours?
(BTW: Seth is best known for creating the amazing animated TV series, “Family Guy”. Besides directing Ted, he also co-stars in the film with Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. Mark plays John Bennett, whose teddy bear comes to life because of a childhood wish.)
Back to the Walk of Fame Star Ceremony: After Seth’s amusing speech honoring the legendary actor, Adam West, he was more than happy to pose for pictures with fans and ME!
Me with Seth MacFarlane!
As if that wasn’t enough excitEment for one day at work, the original Bat Mobile was parked right across the street from the Hollywood Wax Museum. Although I took this shot before we opened, the crowd ended up filling all of the lanes of Hollywood Boulevard.
Thanks for the post, Joseph. You’ve got it made in Hollwyood!
