Hooray for Hollywood
Ok, you should know who this guy is... Mmmmm, Matt Damon!
And finally a close up of Julia Stiles.
I'm not sure if Brad was convinced it was worth standing in 85 degree heat for an hour, but I think a one second glimpse of Matt was well worth it!
Friday morning we were up bright and early to get our tickets for The Tonight Show. We received our tickets at NBC at 8am, then headed over to Universal Studios for a few hours.While we were there we took the Studio tour and got to see movie and tv sets from some of my favourites!
It's the city hall from Back to the Future (minus the clock tower)
Where's Terri Hatcher? On Wisteria Lane of course (they were actually filming that day)!
Don't go in... to the Bates Motel from Psycho!
The wreckage from War of the Worlds...
After a few hours at Universal, we headed back to NBC for the taping of the Tonight Show. It was a great show with Kevin James (King of Queens) and the guy who swam in the Arctic Circle as guests. Once again, we left NBC and headed back to Universal to finish our day. Needless to say, we were exhausted!It worked out well that on our final day, we had booked a tour of the movie stars homes (we needed to give our feet a break)! A few of the highlights included....
Elton John's new house in Bel Air - shaped like a piano of course!
Jack Nicholson's house - Love the tennis court on stilts!
Leonardo di Caprio's house - unfortunately we didn't get an invite in!
All in all, we had a great time in LA - a great place to visit, but I don't think I could ever live there!
