Los Angeles is home to many celebrities. Before asking a star for an autograph or recounting how much you love their movies, remember that this is where they live — would you want to be interrupted every time you went out to run an errand?
Still, if a celebrity sighting is what you’re after, you’ll have better luck if you don’t plan your activities around supposed “celebrity hangouts”. Go about your normal business and you’ll more than likely see a star while eating out, going to the grocery store or attending a movie.
If you’re only in town a short time and want your best shot at seeing a celeb, try upscale restaurants like The Ivy and Newsroom Cafe, clubs like Hyde (if you can get in!) and high-end shopping areas like Robertson Boulevard.
