No Paparazzo-O

CakeOrDeath here, reporting live from Hollywood, California!

Do you like celebrities? Do you want nothing more in your life than to hear about random sightings of the people you love to hate? What else is there to do? Vote? Fix the economy? Protest war? Fuuuuuuuuuuuck that.

 This past Sunday I saw Gillian Jacobs, aka "Britta" on Community, scuttling the streets of Atwater Village. She and a scruffy-looking man were window browsing while heading toward a Pho restaurant. My friend and I kept staring* at her to see if it really was her. Then she gave me the stink eye, EXACTLY like this:




















Bingo!

*As a so-called native of Los Angeles, I typically don't stare at famous people. Not anymore. Not since I was 9 years old and wanted Raven Symone's autograph at a free concert on Universal City Walk. I'm a grown-up. Plus, I can imagine it's hard being on a popular TV show that millions of people watch, and that leaving your house is cause for being asked nonstop by random strangers 20-years older than you, "I know you from somewhere. Did we go to high school together?" Also, Gillian Jacobs is white, so she probably has other problems. Sorry for eye-stalking you Gillian! It had nothing to do with you and everything to do with my need to constantly prove myself right.

  5. A while ago I was at Whole Foods downtown and I saw Selma Blair. We gasped because we were a few inches from running into each other and we stared into each others eyes. she looked familiar so I thought maybe she was a friend of a friend. she probably thought i was a fan of hers by the amount of smiling i was producing. we then realized we were neither of those things and then awkwardly looked away and went about our ways. she went on to have lunch with Jason schwartzman, I went back to waiting tables at my family's restaurant.

  6. When I was in New York a month ago, I saw Chris Noth and Donald Trump ON THE SAME DAY! My dad also thinks we caught a glimse of Rihanna, which is possible. A few years ago, I saw Noel Gallagher in a hotel.

    This has no relation to the post, I just wanted to tell you which celebrities I've seen.

  7. Anchor Management... that is totally the point of these posts. It's somewhere you can share that stuff, no judgment-o!

  9. My ex and I went to see Jello Biafra give a spoken word performance at a local college. Afterwards, I wanted to meet him, so I went up to him (he was sitting in the front row with a local that he knew from back in the day) and gushed. He was polite, but then turned and started talking to his friend while I stood there and stared at him with a big, dumb grin on my face. Finally I left. Kind of a fond memory, despite the awkwardness.

  10. When Transformers 2 was filming here in Chicago, I went actively looking for Shia LaBeouf. I didn't find him.
