The 40 Year Old Virgin Apartment

This weekend, while stalking in Studio City, I dragged my boyfriend to the apartment complex used in the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin.  In the movie, the main character Andy Stitzer lives in Apartment #5 of a white clapboard and brick apartment building that can be found in Studio City.  This is another movie I have yet to see, but since the location was featured in my fave stalking book, I figured I just had to stalk it.  You know I have a problem when I am stalking the locations of movies I haven’t even seen!  :)

Sophie Kinsella and me!

In The 40 Year Old Virgin, Andy meets a girl named Beth at a bookstore near where he works.  The interior of that bookstore is located in Pasadena.  It is called Vroman’s Bookstore and it is one of my favorite places in the entire world!!  It is the most charming, adorable bookstore I have ever set foot in.  A Pasadena landmark since 1894 (yes, you read that right!), Vroman’s is so much more than just a bookstore.  Filled with candles, fine stationary, scrap-booking supplies, gifts and cards, I can literally spend whole afternoons roaming the many aisles.  Vroman’s has an incredible selection of well-known and best-selling authors who come to give readings on a daily basis.  Last March, my very favorite author Sophie Kinsella made Vroman’s the sole California stop on her Shopaholic and Baby book tour and she signed autographs and took pictures with every single fan who showed up, including me.  :)  Yes, I stalk authors, too.  :)

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  :)

Stalk It:  The 40 Year Old Virgin lived in Studio City at 12016 Moorpark Street, in Apartment#5.  Vroman’s Bookstore is located at 695 E. Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena.  After some Vroman’s stalking, head over to Lovebird’s Cafe and Bakery at 921 E. Colorado Blvd. for some espresso and a bite to eat – the restaurant is a favorite of Charlie Sheen’s.
