Sightings

The thing people in Los Angeles like to talk about most, besides an earthquake, is the last time they saw a celebrity.

I’m not really sure why. Seeing famous people is a fairly common occurrence, here. (How we’re the 9th best city for people watching, I’ll never understand.)

Just today, I passed an three-time Oscar nominee in the hall. Celebrities drop kids off at my wife’s school every day. I ran into Bryan Singer at a college party. The weirdest celebrity encounter was when I saw Jackie Chan riding a segway with his mom.

And yet, even though I try not to talk about the lives of celebrities, it’s still fun to see Matthew Perry three rows up at the Imax. (This was last year, at I Am Legend; seeing Perry was the coolest part of the evening.)

So, if it’s so normal and commonplace, why do Angelinos get excited about celebrity sightings? Especially those of us who work with these actors on a daily basis?

  1. I was hoping to see celebrities when I visited L.A, but I didn’t see anyone famous and I was really bummed out.

    I would be VERY excited if I saw celebrities, living in L.A so maybe those people who get excited, are the ones who didn’t grow up in L.A and aren’t used to it?

  2. I find it fun because, and you realize this only once it happens, but you recognize and feel like you have a history with someone you’ve never actually met.
