Thomas Hayden Church on the HBO set of Divorce in NYC

On screen California born, Texas raised Thomas Hayden Church comes across as an intense individual who could snap and unleash an artillery of rage, in your direction, at any given moment.  It’s an undeniably intense attractive trait.

It has pushed our button and leaves goose pimples in its wake since we first laid eyes on him as a child in “Wings.”

We recently stopped by the set of the HBO comedy production “Divorce,” presently filming in NYC, on its first day of filming, and spotted the blue eyed hottie making his way down the street and snapped to attention before our brain had a moment to verify what we were registering.

We’ve seen these here photos of Harrison Ford in his Speedos many times before.  We won’t lie…  We’ve had them in a folder on our desktop, as a keepsake to oggle, for sometime, but we thought it high time we made alternate use of them.

You can only self-gratify for so long before you chafe. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Set: West Side Highway Bike Path Run

wshbikepath-filmset-splitDuring a recent drive we came across a film set on the riding up the bike path on the West Side Highway, on a frosty winter’s day mind you, making their way uptown towards Chelsea Piers.

It wasn’t a planned venue for us, we have to say, but as we were in a position to snap first and wonder about it later we gladly did so from the fully heated seat of our ride, all the while thinking we’d give a few research options a try a bit later.   Read the rest of this entry »

Kanye West: Attack Against Amber Rose Backfires

Kanye West gets into a war of indiscretions with ex Amber Rose

Kanye West gets into a war of indiscretions with ex Amber Rose

Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, has fired back after his oral diarrhea on The Breakfast Club, where he made reference to how long it took him to cleanse himself prior to hooking up with his baby-mama Kim Kardashian.

“I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim,” West stated.  Not the crudest statement West has ever made, but certainly one riled with connotations.

There’s an old saying:  ‘Don’t provoke me or I’ll tell your business.’  It speaks volume for those who know you best and, generally speaking, can bring a disagreement to a close with a quick vague reminder of the past.   Read the rest of this entry »

Will Smith: Letterman Stage Door Veteran

Will Smith arrives at a taping of Letterman to promote his new film Focus

There’s little denying that Will Smith is a nice guy.  And he makes an effort to acknowledge everyone he passes.  We know that for fact as we have been in his vicinity repeatedly and not only watched it happen with others but have been the recipient of it as well.

We stopped in at the Letterman stage door, a few days ago, just in time to catch the Fresh Prince of Bel Air alum’s arrival to tape a segment to promote his film “Focus” and marveled at how he managed to both greet fans, turn and do a photo run -with eye contact with every lens – with the greatest of ease and no bother what-so-ever.

And that is the true sign of a celebrity veteran! Read the rest of this entry »
