I grew up in London and live in Los Angeles, so it’s safe to say I’ve seen my fair share of celebrities. In a big city like those it’s not unusual to bump into a famous person in the street, a restaurant or even at a party. My mother once sat next to a Hollywood star in her doctor’s office in London’s East End. (She also spotted a James Bond star on her local high street. She’s spectacularly good at celeb spotting.)
But I’ve never had the balls to take a sneaky, cheeky photo of a celeb on my cell phone while in their presence. And this incident with Naomi Watts is exactly why I would never do it.
