Per Lisa the sis-in-law:
No comment on how or why he knew of him since Dustin had no sisters growing up.
This is a shout out to my sister who wore/talked/looked at NKOTB every day for two years while I was in Junior High.
Walked by Justin Long from the TV show “Ed” and the movie “Dodgeball”, while eating lunch on Larchmont.
My sister-in-law Lisa emailed me last night from her crackberry: “[Saw] Katie Holmes at the kcrw sounds eclectic show at universal ampitheater. Boo ya kaw.”
Once again I didn’t who either of them were before I IMDB’d them.
So while we were eating dinner at some pseudo-dive garlic italian restaurant, some guy comes up to the table soliciting. I said “no thank you” not realizing who it was: Bernard Parks. He is some ex-police chief running for mayor of Los Angeles. So we talked to him for a bit. Pretty cool.
That counts as a celebrity sighting, yes?
As we were walking into The Ivy, we saw Paula Abdul. We ate our lunch and then walked down Robertson for about an hour. When we came back to valet, I looked into The Ivy courtyard and saw Simon Cowell.
I don’t bug celeb’s but I considered (for a moment) bugging him and telling him the coincedence. I am sure Paula had left before he arrived with his girlfriend.
I was pretty amazed I spotted him. I am always arguing that so-and-so looks like so-and-so when Sam laughs and says it IS so-and-so. Last week I saw a girl that looked like Elizabeth Berkley. Sam came up to me later and said, “Did you see Elizabeth Berkley in Barnes & Noble?” Ugggh, I had done it again.
And yesterday Samantha saw Annette Bening walking down Bedford in front of Victorian Rose (where Sam was buying a new necklace) in Beverly Hills.
I have to say it is great being married to an actress for that reason. I just dont know celebrities names and am always referring to people as “That’s that one guy from blahdy-blah.”
