Hollywood - star spotting

Thursday, April 22, 2004
Whether you hit the pavement with the paparazzi or take a tour of the star’s houses, you don’t have go far in Hollywood to be spotting the Celebs.

Catriona hitched a ride with one of Hollywood's most successful paparazzi, Giles Harrison. He is very quick on the draw and in no time at all saw Sally Field, Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford and home boy made good, Ben Lee.

Brendon and Catriona happened to see a scene of Be Cool being filmed. The sequel to Get Shorty, it stars Harvey Keitel, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Danny de Vito and The Rock.

For those keen to take a peek at the homes of the stars, StarLine Tours can help. They have been operating since 1935 and as well as knowing where everyone lives, run tours such as Los Angeles by night, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry farm, Sea World, Disneyland and the J Paul Getty Museum. You can even visit famous gravesites. They will take you along Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and through Beverly Hills and Bel-Air, where you see some incredible mansions with impossibly perfect lawns.

Hollywood tours head off every half hour, lasting two hours. You are collected from your hotel and your experienced guide tells you who lives where, as well as giving interesting information and stories along the way. They have all the inside gossip.

One of the best chances of seeing a film star in the flesh is just from walking around the streets. There are movie and television locations all over the city and while stand-ins are used a lot, you could luck out and see one of your favourites. A visit to the Seeing Stars website will let you know the current locations.
