Hollywood Joseph (a wonderful Hollywood Wax Museum employee) and guest blogger offers a jolt of joe just for you–starring a celebrity sighting of the lovely and funny Anna Faris.
Guest post from Hollywood Joseph:
If you had told me that I was going to meet Anna Faris tonight, I wouldn’t have believed you. But, on my way to my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant, Habibi Cafe, in Westwood Village (yes, that’s near UCLA), I ran into a movie premiere unfolding.
Check out the scene before the premiere of “What’s Your Number?” at the historic Regency Village Theater (a.k.a. Fox Village Theater). The publicists were all gathered on the red carpet waiting for their celebrities to arrive. It seemed they mostly held stuff for their clients, like purses and already chewed gum, while the stars posed for pictures.
I thought it would be fun to get a celebrity autograph while I
was there. So, I asked Dave Annable (remember him Brothers and Sisters–I miss that show!) He came off the red carpet, and I handed him a pen. When he was done signing, he walked away without giving it back to me. I yelled, “my pen, Dave!” He brought it back and said with a smile, “I was actually going to keep that as a souvenir.”
All in all, a great Hollywood encounter with a bonus of awesome Baba Ganoush (roasted eggplant, tahini sauce, garlic, olive oil and lemon) and Atayeh (Egyptial crepes with stuffed with walnuts and syrup). Gotta love LA!
Thanks for this guest post, Joseph. We can’t get enough of your Hollywood nights insight.
