Oh Yeah, That Movie
October 2, 2011 | TV/movie addiction
So I think the big Hollywood hub-bub has left the area… or at least most everyone is kind of over it.
It was fun for awhile, but I knew I was kind of over the cool factor when one of my close friends told me a house on her block was going to be used for filming, and I didn’t go over to check it out.
Of course, none of the hotties were there, just Eva Mendes, and I can’t get excited about her.
A couple blocks over from my house, I spotted Ray Liotta getting dropped off at the set…the kids and I just walked over, and there he was. Crazy. You know he’s playing a crooked cop — he’s gotta be. Has he ever played a kind, gentle soul?
We stopped two houses over because one of the elementary school teachers was there, and Jojo wanted to say hi. I instantly liked her more because she was there in her running clothes — sweaty and not ashamed.
One mom kind of worried me because she was all gussied up and apparently had searched out the sets all summer, bringing her child every day to catch a glimpse of the stars. What does she expect? I’m not sure. But her intensity creeped me out, so we left shortly after seeing Bradley Cooper arrive at set, which happened a few minutes after seeing Ray:
What? You don’t see him? I needed a better lens? Yes, but if you squint and get REALLY FREAKY close to your screen, you can see him in the middle of the picture, wearing a blue tshirt heading into the house — he’s to the right of the crew member in the yellow tshirt.
Apparently, he’s rather snooty and has no interest in talking with locals. What gives, Coop? The boys weren’t impressed with any of it (although I’m more interested in seeing all the goings on needed to make a film and the fact that it was RIGHT down the street! Crazy!), so we left.
I’m looking forward to the film, though, since they shot at several area locations we know well. I’m rather surprised at how quickly I got over the initial excitement considering how into movies I once was. Sorry I didn’t score more insider gossip or scandalous photos for you, dear Reader.
