Top places to spot celebrities???

What are the top 5 places to spot celebrities during the day.

I'm not going to stalk them for an autograph or anything. I just think it would be fun to spot one or two!

Thanks

P&Q

Westwood Village in the Wilshire Blvd area. I've spotted a few there, especially during a movie premiere. Good luck!

Westwood Village? You'll see lots of UCLA college students there, but not celebrities (unless, of course, there is a movie premiere - which isn't all that often).

P&Q, try also seeing the website for Seeing Stars. Lots of information here and also a events calendar for the 3 movie premiere locations in Westwood Village. Looks like there are many premieres in the month of December. Also shows the times of when the movie stars are expected. Good luck!

Premieres in Westwood Village maybe, but otherwise I haven't seen anyone famous in Westwood since the '70s (I know, I'm dating myself). On the other hand, I see them constantly at the Santa Monica cinemas, on Robertson, at The Grove, on Montana Ave., in Barneys, etc.

theartgirl, it is really a matter of 'chance' when you see them. I didn't say they would be out 24 hours a day. I've even seen them at the Ralph's grocery store off the 405 on Wilshire. Again, it's all a matter of chance when you see a movie star.

I've lived in the Los Angeles area for over fifteen years and it's rare that I spot a television or movie actor. I agree with "yogachik" that you're not likely to spot a celebrity in Westwood unless there's a movie premier there.

In general, I think the odds that you'll encounter a celebrity by just walking around are extremely thin. Don't be disappointed if you don't encounter a celebrity.
