Laura Meets Jennifer Lopez

Here is a copy from a past Blog about Laura’s run in with Jenifer Lopez.

July 19, 2005

While I was out on my errands, I stopped to watch the movie Dr. Dolittle 2 being shot. Rumor had it that Eddie Murphy was on set, but alas I didn’t see him.

Our (old) neighborhood (Yale Town) is considered to be part of Hollywood North. Vancouver has been the location of countless movies over the years. Recent movies that come to mind are The Fantastic 4 and X-Men.

Over the years Laura and I have run into Michael Keaton, Jennifer Lopez, Alanis Morissette, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Christian Slater and there may be a few more.

Can you imagine being in the same grocery line up with Alanis Morissette?

This brings to mind a funny story that I told Kim Black while talking E-Marketing with her on my cell phone while watching the Dr. Dolittle movie shoot.

I had seen a “movie star” profiled on the local news a few days before. While Laura and I were in the grocery store (Urban Fare) I noticed the coat the “movie star” was wearing from the storey on the local news. And low and behold it was her and I was the only one that seemed to notice the “movie star” and her entourage. I kind of stood back to watched Laura to see if she had noticed the “movie star” as Laura was literally side by side with the “movie star” buying tomatoes.

Laura came back to where I was standing with the shopping cart and Laura said “My God, can you believe that woman. She must be wearing 5 carat earrings and she is shopping on a Saturday afternoon!” I said, take another look. Laura turned back to me with eyes as big saucers and said “That’s not really her, is it?” I said yes, that’s Jennifer Lopez, buying tomatoes, same as everybody else.

By that time, everyone in the store knew it was J-Lo (that’s what I call her now that we are tomato shopping buddies); she handed her groceries to an assistant and exited the store.
