Checking Out the Red Carpet

Posted: July 19, 2009 in Family and Friends


Didn’t think it was possible, but today was at least as good as yesterday. After worshiping with the Logans this morning, we met Jeneen Metz at Malibu Country Mart for Sunday lunch. I enjoyed a sandwich from John’s Garden (I chose the Atlantic, a combo shrimp salad / egg salad sandwich, and an organic oatmeal-raisin cookie – yum, yum!). After a long outdoor visit on a beautiful afternoon, we headed to Hollywood. There, we stumbled on a movie premiere for the new Disney movie, G-Force.


They had already rolled out the red carpet for the arrivals, but we were able to see the stars coming out after the show. Jody was bummed that Nicolas Cage wasn’t there, and I wasn’t any happier that Penelope Cruz didn’t make it either. Still, we saw four pretty cool celebs. I can’t wait to see the Logans’ pictures when they are posted – I think their shots are better than mine (the pic at the top of this post is Gene checking them out when we ended our day with dinner at Johnny Rocket’s).

The first one is Gena Lee Nolin, former Baywatch star. We didn’t know who she was until we got home and worked a little Google magic. Jody said our friend, Todd Hayes, would have known who she was immediately. 🙂


Then we saw Brenda Song, who plays London Tipton on Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” Anyone with kids would recognize her.


Then we recognized a rather significant star in Jon Voight, father of Angelina Jolie, and star in movies such as Midnight Cowboy and Deliverance. We (meaning, Jody) recognized him on the spot.


Finally, we saw a mega-star in producer, Jerry Bruckheimer. We didn’t recognize him until we made it home to play around with Google. But, huge Hollywood star. Too many television hits and movie blockbusters to start naming them – just check out the Wikipedia link HERE.


But in spite of all this fun, the picture of the day had nothing to do with the movie premiere. From our perch high above Hollywood Boulevard, we noticed a great sight among the costumed characters working for tips – here is the Son of God with a cold beverage chatting with KISS frontman, Gene Simmons.

    My life is so BORING compared to yours! The National Governor’s Conference is meeting in Biloxi 2 miles away – and not a one has come over to see me!
