Becky Bloomwood Takes on the El Capitan!

Feb 27th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

I have long been obsessed with the “Confessions of a Shopaholic” book series authored by British novelist Sophie Kinsella (aka Madeline Wickham).  So obsessed in fact that about five years ago when I heard that Hollywood was optioning a screenplay based on the novels, I wrote to Sophie pitching myself for the movie’s lead role. I must say that I was absolutely born to play the story’s heroine, Becky Bloomwood – a slightly daft shopaholic with a completely unique and upbeat take on the world.  So when Sophie Kinsella wrote me back, as you […]



Isn’t It Romantic!

Feb 26th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A few weeks ago while watching my all time favorite episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, entitled “Isn’t It Romantic”, I noticed something I had never noticed before in all of my previous times watching it.   In the episode, Dylan takes Brenda on a date to a scenic lookout point to discuss their burgeoning relationship.  While watching that scene I noticed that Dylan and Brenda walk right by a sign reading “Mulholland Scenic Corridor” (pictured above).  And I almost jumped right out of my chair as I knew exactly where […]



The Robinson House from “The Graduate”

Feb 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks back fellow stalker Scott, from the Film in America website, asked me if I knew the location of the Robinson house and the Braddock house from the 1967 movie The Graduate.   He told me that he feared the locations of those homes were lost to history being that the movie was filmed over forty years ago and the addresses didn’t seem to be posted anywhere.   So I just had to get Mike from MovieShotsLA on the case – and sure enough he found the houses.  Well, the […]



Get Out Of Line!

Feb 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
Those of you who read my blog regularly know that there’s only one thing I like better than stalking and that’s Starbucks.    Or any kind of coffee, really.  So when Mike, from MovieShotsLA, called me up last Sunday morning and asked if I wanted to stalk a coffee shop with him, I believe my exact words were “How fast can you be here?”  LOL  On a side-note, my grandma just started reading my blog and the other day she called me up and asked “So, who’s this Mike guy????”  LOL  She […]



Oscar Weekend 2009!

Feb 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Oh, how I love the smell of Awards Season in the morning! And let me tell you – this was the Academy Awards Weekend to end all Academy Awards Weekends for me! I had the absolute time of my life!!!!!!!!!!! It was so incredible that I am still pinching myself today. Bright and early Saturday morning I dragged my boyfriend out to Hollywood and Highland Mall to stalk Oscar’s red carpet and we didn’t make it home until after 3am the following morning. AND I […]



How To Spot a Movie Star!

Feb 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Because so many of you have been asking lately, and in honor of the upcoming Oscar Weekend, I thought I’d do a post today on the best places to go in L.A. to see a star.   But first let me start by saying that if your sole purpose in visiting L.A. is to see celebs – and let’s be honest, what other reason is there? – the very best time of year to plan your trip is Oscar Weekend.  I’ve said it before and I’ll […]



Le Borghese Apartments

Feb 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While Mike, from MovieShotsLA, was cyberstalking the ‘Til There Was You  apartment building a few weeks ago, he came across a comment on a website which stated that the very same building from ‘Til There Was You  was also used in the 2001 David Lynch thriller Mulholland Dr.   Well, after doing a bit more research, Mike and I discovered that information is actually incorrect.  While there was a Spanish style courtyard apartment building featured in Mulholland Dr., it was not the El Cabrillo apartments which I blogged about yesterday.   The building used in Mulholland Dr. is actually […]



The “‘Til There Was You” Apartment Building

Feb 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Movie Locations

Another day, another elusive location found thanks to Mike – God of Stalking – over at MovieShotsLA.    I have been challenged several times over the past few months to find the beautiful courtyard apartment building featured in the 1997 movie ‘Til There Was You. Unfortunately I had never seen the movie before and my local Blockbuster did not carry the title.  And according to Amazon.com, the DVD had been discontinued by the manufacturer.  So I thought I was really out of luck on this one, as without […]



Meet Me At 3rd and Fairfax!

Feb 17th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

My boyfriend has some amazing celebrity karma!   He pretty much sees a movie star of some sort or another everywhere he goes.  And for some odd reason it seems his celebrity karma is especially strong when I am not with him.  It drives me nuts!!  Just a few of his celeb encounters that I somehow missed – he ate dinner once next to Calista Flockheart and Harrison Ford – and he didn’t even look to see what, if anything, Calista ate!!, he shopped for CD’s right next […]



Happy Presidents’ Day!

Feb 16th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

Hi fellow stalkers! As you’ve probably noticed already IAmNotAStalker has a new look. Because I was working out the kinks on the new site all weekend, I didn’t have time to write a post. And in honor of Presidents’ Day, I’m taking today off. I promise I’ll be back tomorrow. So without further ado, welcome to my new site! I hope you enjoy it!
