This is the right street for celebrity spotting or…Sightseeing in L.A.


Not to lead you wrong with my title- but I kid you not, that was the sentence that Birgit and I heard most on the hop on-hop off bus we went on for sightseeing in Hollywood. It was hilarious, essentially there is also a Celebrity GPS…oh well… ;) We didn’t see one celebrity although we were in all the “perfect” streets LOL.


I am so glad Birgit convinced me to get in a day earlier and do a little sightseeing day together. We had so much fun together. We stopped at Mel’s Dinner – love the interior!


We indulged in a huge breakfast after we traveled almost 24 hours and then woke up the first time at 11pm after going to bed at 9pm…and then hourly. Kind of like “hey, I don’t care you only slept only 2 hours and it is only 11pm now…it is 8 am in Germany and you gotta get up now”…it was pathetic.


BTW ¬†taking food photos was our favorite…LOL- especially when you get a piece of chocolate cake which we had decided to split- that would feed about 20 people!


I think the waiter was laughing secretly at us as we repeatedly asked if that is really a portion for one person. We couldn’t even manage to eat half of this but it was delicious!


We did some shopping, well…actually read: I spent my yearly clothing budget in 50s dresses and I love every piece I bought and then we did the before mentioned hop on-hop off bus tour.


We saw some beautiful stuff – like this lamp-post sculpture at LACMA – love it!


So glad we did this extra day. We laughed so much and it got us in the right mood after some stressful weeks to go to CHA. That will be next :)

What Celebrity did you ever spot?

huge hugs

    I think you see more actors walking the streets in NYC than in Hollywood. Last trip to NY I saw Uma Thurman (boy is she tall!!)


  • Pam in New Jersey


    Rod Stewart at the Saratoga Race Track in Saratoga Springs, New York. He was eating french fries at a concession stand and when my friend and I saw him we were close enough to pick a french fry from his plate. We were stopped in our tracks with our mouths hanging open because we had been listening to his music on the trip to New York. He started laughing and gave us a huge smile. Stupidly we smiled back and stumbled away to tell our husbands.

    Mick Jagger, Downtown Julie Brown, Dustin Hoffman, Meg Ryan, Patricia Clarkson, Ali McGraw, Colin Powell….there were more, but I can’t remember. All were spotted on NYC streets except for Colin Powell, who was in the gift shop of the Waldorf Astoria (where I was meeting a friend, not staying there – who could afford it?!). The most fun was Dustin Hoffman. I was wearing white pants with a black shirt. He was wearing black pants with a white shirt – exact opposites. He looked me up & down and gave me a nice smile. That was back when I was younger and thinner. I don’t think he’d look me up & down today, but he’d probably still smile.

    When I was an acting student in NYC years ago, my best friend in school was Lisa Roberts, Julia Robert’s sister. Julia was just working at Ann Taylor and didn’t have plans to act, yet. She definitely had the charisma and groundedness to do it. She was wonderful. I also went on a date with their brother Eric Roberts, and my massage partner in voice class was Dylan Mcdermott. A lifetime ago.
    I want to see the dresses too!

    I saw Willie Nelson in the airport one time – he came up behind me in line – we chatted for a few minutes – he was going to Hawaii and i was going to Nashville – we laughed. I didn’t ask for a pic – i was being nice. I’ve regretted that ever since.
