Have you seen a movie celebrity in Shreveport Bossier?
 
Have you ever seen a celebrity or someone from a movie here in Shreveport or Bossier?

Yes! My sister and I actually saw Jennifer Tilly at the mall in Bossier last year. My sister recognized her and pointed her out to me. I recognized her voice when I heard her speak to a cashier.

My mom used to play golf with Kevin Costner.

I heard Kevin Costner swims regularly at the indoor pool at LSUS. Dunno if he still does. I hear that he really likes our area though.

I've heard the same. When they filmed The Guardian here in town, I met one of the production crew members at their crew party and he told me that Kevin Costner lives in Bossier. I haven't found any confirmation though.

Where did your mother play golf with him at? I know Stonebridge has a golf course and really nice, expensive housing. That would be best guess for where Kevin Costner lives.

Starstruck!
 
Sandra Bullock was filming outside my work place, but they asked us to all stay inside and to pull the shades! Can you imagine? I can't wait to see Premoniton to see if you can see me "poking" through the shades! LOL She looked completely normal not all glammed up! I sure would like to run into Tom Cruise!:cool:

I snapped a photo of my old buddy working at Master Cuts in the mall. Sad, but since our show he's had to find other work. U.S. Postal Service wanted nothing to do with him.

Being an "extra" is fun!!
 
Both my kids have had the opportunity to work as extras on the sets of movies in town. I watched as they worked with Sandra Bullock and the others from Premonition. Also, the elementary kids in my school were extras as well. Pretty awesome to be close to people we consider stars. There are very strict rules against conversation and pictures, though. So you have to just enjoy the moment and savor the memories. Then you spend the whole time watching the movie looking for some sign of the ones you know in the background shots.

Tom and Katie Cruise are coming over to my house for dinner tonight and a birthday party for Suri. Is that going to count?:laugh:

Kevin was living at Southern Trace. that's where she played with him. She played with his wife (at least i think it was his wife, maybe his girlfriend) a bunch, but only got to play with Kevin a few times.

>I can't wait to see Premoniton...

I can't wait for them to make a movie here that doesn't look like watching it would make me claw my eyes out*. The wife and thought "Thief" was OK, but every other project filmed here has been a steaming pile.

They were filming some scenes for that Jessica Simpson movie a few months ago in front of the S'port Club and the old guys up on the 3rd floor were saying disgusting things abut her, it was great.




*how's that for awesome grammar/sentence structure?

Thanks for the welcome!
 
Always fun to watch my kids!! Sports, school stuff, etc. I know from reading your posts you have that same feeling about your girls.

Our experience with the movie set was hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait!! Then, they do exactly the same scene over, and over, and over - in total silence. Only the real actors can speak - not the extras. The actors get paid for every word, so real money comes in there. But $80 a day for an 11 year old was really fun cash for him. My 16 y/o daughter had a full week - nice paycheck for her.

It's only one or two days at a time, though. It would be hard to have any consistent cash flow as an adult. Also, if your child is on the set, a parent is required to be there. So, it's a two for one deal. That's when you need a good book, 'cause no talking among the excited parents either!

But what an exciting memory for my kids!! And what a great experience for Shreveport Bossier to host this industry!!

Again, thanks for the welcome!:)

Tom Cuise
 
Hey Pocahontas, I'd like to run into Tom too. With my truck.

I heard that the paparazzi finally came to shreveport since we have bigger stars in town now like Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise, etc.

Now that's pretty funny! The paparazzi chases Katie all over the country but she calls the Shreveport police. Guess she likes that Mayberry local police hospitality! You know all the local Barney Fife's ate this up!:)
