The good old U.S.A. celebrates its 232nd birthday this week on Friday, July 4th birthday.
At The Movies: The Fourth of July has become synonymous with the actor Will Smith. No less than four of movies have been released in time for the fireworks, Independence Day, Men in Black and the comic western The Wild, Wild, West. On the big screen this weekend Will Smith in his typical humor plays Hancock a wisecracking homeless, alcoholic superhero saves the life of a man who is determined to make him into a true hero the world can adore. It was in 1996 the first of his four movies Independence Day was released and had us forever watching the skies above the valley.
Say Thanks and Display it Proudly: In L.A. there appears to be another trend starting with the all too familiar shortcut for the word thanks “thx”? What I thought was an anomaly of seeing one license plate that read “THXUMOM” became a second plate “THXSUPS.” Just who or what are you thankful for?
Pamela Sue Anderson, actress and maybe best known for her scantily clad role in the television series, Baywatch turned 41 on July 1st.
Hollywood Walk of Fame: The country music duo of Brooks and Dunn will be immortalized on the famed Tinsel Town sidewalk in Hollywood on August 4, 2008. They will join other music notables this year including George Harrison (The Beatles), Christina Aguilera, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ricky Martin.
Angelina Jolie was admitted to the hospital, July 1st in the south of France in the town of Nice. Angelina and Brad and their brood of children have recently begun calling Nice their home along with their seaside residence in Malibu, California and others around the globe. The hospital’s address should make Brad and Angie feel right at home. It’s on Nice’s California Avenue.
Britney Spears will soon be responsible for fewer accidents in the valley, less paparazzi clogging the streets and will no longer require the escort services of the Los Angeles Police Department on her late night runs to the hospital. It has been reported that she is selling her house in Studio City, California. Good luck to the next city where she puts down roots.
