Rosie’s Pink House from The Wedding SingerJun 23rd, 2009 | By Lindsay | Category: Movie Locations
A couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker Owen contacted me to see if Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I could help him track down Rosie, aka the rappin’ granny’s, pink house from the 1998 movie The Wedding Singer. Owen had been trying for quite a while to locate the home, but just couldn’t make out the house number that appeared above Rosie’s front door. So, Mike and I got to work in trying to nail down the home’s location, or at least its correct address number.
And, while neither Mike nor I could figure out that address number, Mike did notice a house number painted on the curb across the street from Rosie’s home (pictured above). We were fairly certain that address number was 1428, so I immediately emailed Owen to let him know. And, with that bit of information, he set off to locate the house. I’m happy to report that it wasn’t long before he found it!
After searching every single 1400 block in the Pasadena area – which is where we were assuming the house was located – Owen ended up contacting the movie’s location manager, who got back to him pretty much immediately. Amazingly enough, the location manager remembered the general vicinity of where the home was located, which ended up to be a long way from Pasadena. It turns out that Rosie’s house is located in West Hollywood, just down the street from both Lauren Conrad’s former Hills home and the two houses that appeared in the original Halloween movie. I am happy to report that, despite its color, Rosie’s house looks pretty much exactly the same today as it did back in 1998 when The Wedding Singer was filmed. According to the location manager that Owen talked to, Rosie’s house was painted pink solely for the filming of the movie, much like the home featured at the end of 13 Going On 30. In real life, the house is painted a light shade of grey. Also missing in real life is the white picket fence surrounding Rosie’s house, which I am assuming was also installed solely for filming purposes.
The house located across the street from Rosie’s also looks pretty much exactly the same as it did in The Wedding Singer. Even the address number painted on the curb is still there. Love it!
Big THANK YOU to Owen for finding this location!!! Very nicely done!!!
Until next time, Happy Stalking!
Stalk It: Rosie’s house from The Wedding Singer is located at 1425 North Orange Grove Avenue in Los Angeles.
