I have no idea why, but I always seem to run into celebrities on the streets of New York. I promise I'm really not a (total) stalker- maybe it's just that I'm out and about in the city a good portion of the day, but whatever it is I always seem to catch some of my favorite models, actors, ect. downtown.
New Yorkers are very proud of their blase attitude towards stars, and normally I don't want to bother them either, but when someone I am as obsessed with as Matt Bomer or Karlie Kloss passes by, I just can't pass up the opportunity to meet them! Luckily they've all been super nice about it and willing to take a photo or even chat for a few minutes about whatever it is we are both doing (the coffee at Odessa, growing up as "all American girls," their outfits...) no one went all Blake Lively on me this summer.
A look at a few of the faces I've seen since I officially moved to the city a month and a half ago:
Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay outside filming the next season of White Collar.
The flying tomato//Sean White at the CFDA awards (flashbacks to his scene with Justin Timberlake in Friends with Benefits)
Karlie Kloss on 5th Avenue! She was the sweetest- her sister had just gone off into some store so she was just kind of hanging out near Cartier (where she had "just gotten married... to myself") and stood outside talking to me for a good twenty minutes about everything from living in the South to the latest iPhone. We even found out we had mutual friends. That's right, I have mutual friends with Karlie Kloss. No. Big. Deal.
(cute shot right... :/)
Jessica Chastain. She is a fairy princess.
Flashbacks to my photo with Miranda Kerr. Ughhhhhh.
Kaylee DeFer (Ivy on Gossip Girl) was probably the weirdest encounter yet. She wandered into this little cafe on the Lower East Side that my friends and I were having coffee with around 4 AM looking for ice and bandaids as apparently she had just witnessed someone get hit by a car outside. I'm still not really sure what was going on, but at least I was able to make good on my promise to my out of town friends to help them meet someone they'd seen on TV.
Brad! He is just so adorable all of the time.
also, Adam Levine is filming a movie in downtown New York for the next few weeks and I have made it my mission to meet him. They were even filming part of it on my on my street, and while it was fun to watch Kiera Knightly work (and her PERFECT posture, my gosh) this will clearly not suffice.
