SOME people don’t know how to navigate under the radar, but Timothee Chalamet manages to walk all around New York City with barely a second glance, much less a paparazzi. The SAG/AFTRA strike has most actors out of work with time on their hands. When he’s not chowing down on a slice of 99 cent pizza, Timothee is working with a dialog coach prepping for his next film, A Complete Unknown. He’s playing Bob Dylan in the film and he’s working on perfecting Dylan’s unique voice. Bob must be flattered to have such a good-looking actor playing him…
Now HERE’S a pleasant surprise! John Legend’s irrepressible wife Chrissy Teigen and her mom took her children shopping at Kids Couture in West Hollywood and the family immediately attracted some roving paparazzi. The photogs followed her in and out of stores – SOME celebrities would have become belligerent (like Alec Baldwin or perhaps Leonardo DiCaprio) and made a SCENE. But Chrissy remained cool. After shopping, she picked up some pizzas to take home and offered one to the photographers! (They were flabbergasted)
British model (and ex-girlfriend of Michelle Rodriguez) Cara Delevingne just returned from Ibiza and this is how she tried to fool the paparazzi: by wearing a pepperoni pizza print onesie zipped up to the top. Apparently she needs someone to lead her around while her face is covered, but it is a fun idea. And it’s catching on – Katy Perry has the same outfit.
This is Edgar. He suddenly became a celebrity Sunday night when he delivered pizza to Ellen Degeneres and the star-studded Oscar audience. Edgar says he had no idea what he was getting into, and that Ellen has ordered from his pizza parlor several times before. Edgar enjoyed his unexpected notoriety and Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizzeria (Sunset location) has already posted photos of their Oscar triumph. (Click HERE to see them) We bet their phone is ringing off the hook today. One question remains: Did Edgar ever get that big tip from Harvey Weinstein?
A friend of ours was indulging in a 1500 calorie slice of deep dish pizza at Gino’s East in Chicago when he sensed a stir and an elevation in the noise level. Actors Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari walked through the restaurant joyfully handing out breadsticks and pizza slices, followed by a photographer. It turns out the pair are visiting pizza places all over the US, promoting their new movie “30Minutes or Less.” It’s a comedy about two fledgling criminals who kidnap a pizza delivery guy and force him to commit a crime. A woman at Gino’s told Jesse Eisenberg she was grateful to him for developing Facebook and he gently informed her that he just played Mark Zuckerberg in the movie. The actors posed for photos with everyone.
David Archuleta is doing his part to stimulate the economy. He spent a few days back home in Florida and made a personal appearance at a local restaurant. The American Idol runner up posed for photos while he made pizzas at Vic & Angelo’s pizza parlor in Palm Beach Gardens, and afterward he put on a live concert for 500 fans (and potential customers) in the parking lot. His doting father can be seen keeping an eye on him in the background.
