I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a celebrity spotting.
I know, I know, they’re just “people” blah blah, but I doubt that there are many people out there who don’t get a little thrill from a star sighting, or a little pang of jealousy when the story being told isn’t their own. A trip to New York, L.A., and even Yorkville come TIFF time always lacks a little lustre if it’s not accompanied by a movie star moment or two, but living in Asia, I don’t expect much in the way of Hollywood glamour. I usually get my frivolous thrills from baby monkey sightings.
So you can imagine my excitement when on a recent side trip to the tiny picturesque town of Luang Prabang (a UNESCO World Heritage site and a must-visit for anyone planning a South East Asian excursion), I spied Jude Law and Sienna Miller getting cozy all over town.
They shared coffee breaks outside a charming French colonial café, strolled along the Mekong, and shared a bottle of Cab at a local wine bar. What Nannygate?
On the scale of celebrity spotting stories, I totally get a 10.
