Celebrity Sightings...

or at least their Doppelgangers

I live in LA and I see celebs all the time..from the obscure to the super famous.

Yesterday I had two weird almost consecutive sightings but I wonder now if I was just delerious from a long day's work. I decided to take a detour home as I was tired of the traffic from my usual route. I decided to drive through Beverly Hills to get home. I was cruising past Roxbury Park when I saw who I think was footballer Francesco Totti jogging I LOVE TOTTI...so I nearly crashed the car (Skeeeerrrrrrrrr!!!) and hurt my neck trying to take a look. He was actually wearing a AS Roma jersey and had the trademark hair....Alas, I wasn't in a position to turn my car around and follow for a better look For Totti I would burn some serious rubber...but there was no chance to get a better glimpse

So I sat there perplexed and pissed. As I turned back to look forward, I take a glance in my rear view mirror and see this huge mac Mercedes roll up behind me. I look at the woman behind the wheel and it was Anna Kournikova...at least I think it was The beautiful blonde looked just like Anna and was working her cell phone for dear life. I was staring through the rear view and side view mirrors trying to be inconspicous She was behind me for miles and each time I looked it was Anna..but I couldn't see how long her hair was to confirm...My car windows were a little filthy so I couldn't see out the back so clearly

So this can easily be resolved if a fan of these people come in here and can attest to their true whereabouts. I still think I was tired and my imagination got the best of me...After a long day at work we can all be a little :retard:

Speaking of Celeb sightings..anyone else have them?

My best friend in New York saw Angelina Jolie once.... but I have no such luck. If I did, I might drop over dead from excitement.

Couldn't you have seen the crew of Dawson's Creek, Rocketta?

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

The only famous people I've seen are: Martina Hingis, and Tim McGraw.... I actually saw Tim 3 times, and once was before he got famous as he performed at my local high school.

So, I think you were delirious, and would strongly advise against you driving in that state again...

Yeah I guess I could've....now I have to settle for One Tree Hill people...

Who are they anyway?

I need to go and track down Andre 3000....he's filming his movie somewhere near me as well. Actually, that's an idea....

One Tree Hill is being filmed down there?
Don't ask me who they are, I bet some lil teeny boppers know all about 'em.

Go find Andre, and if Angelina is ever down that way, you know who to PM

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Yesterday in Manhattan I saw Jason Patric (anybody remember him?) jogging down the street...
Then later on that night as I was going home, I came out of the subway, and right there standing on the corner talking to a woman was the guy who played Steve on Sex In the City. I thought that was kind of weird.

Usually when I see celebrities here, I just give them the "yeah I know you're famous" look and keep going.

I swear I saw Jelena Dokic on a bus once. On the other hand, it was 7 AM then and knowing me in the morning it could have been any girl wit the blonde hair.

I remember Jason Patric...he used to be so fine circa The Lost Boys..then his hairline receeded and he put on some pounds

I shook hands once with Ernie Banks at O'Hare airport. Not that most of you would have a clue who he is. Also saw Vincent Price in LA when I was a kid. And, how could I forget, I was on the same flight from Frankfurt to SFO with Claudia Schiffer. I didn't know it until I saw her waiting at baggage claim. She was a lot slighter in person than in photos. Most people (including me) were respectful of her privacy. Oh, I also had Thanksgiving dinner at a Geneva hotel restaurant right next to Roger Moore and wife. One of my fellow ugly Americans insisted on getting his autograph and had him agree to a group photo with our table. I felt horribly, because that started a siege of autograph seekers from the rest of the crowd, who had theretofore been leaving him alone (as a good Swiss crowd should). Roger was extremely gracious.

I'm almost certain I saw Jason Williams at a gas station in Somerset one evening. This was while his trial was going on.
