"Joe, sorry maybe not on the b movie jive your working on, lol, but on the big sets, tons of security."


I literally walked right up to you on XXX State Of The Union, right past Willem DeFoe and Samuel L Jackson. Hadn't seen you in years.

No gate pass, no ID...nothing. No one knew who I was. At the Playa Vista stage.

I still remember your exact words: "can you believe you can just walk right up to Willem DeFoe?"


And COZ, WE AIN'T TALKING ABOUT ON-SET.

Celebs do not live day-to-day life, in public, with armed guards. That's what we're talking about.

Jim Carrey doesn't need to tell his armed guard to give up his gun - he doesn't have one in the first place.

C'mon dude, you know better than this.

"Is the security on the sets, or is it personal body guards following them around at the grocery store? HUGE difference."

EXACTLY, COZ

It's both now, especially in less safe countries, like South America, India, Mexico, were express kidnapping is common.

Although, I've notice it's usaually only the big guys like Justin Bebier, Sly, Shahrukh Kahn, Pitt etc.

These guys often roll with car loads of former spec op guys in tow.

When they come to sets their security come with them.

Like I said Joe doesn't know all this because he's editing porn in Simi, mostly...

Joe there was almost an Army around Jennifer on HGames.

Edit...Joe that was along time ago, things are changing, although you can often find huge gaps in security, but rest assured its there.

I used to work in the same building where Oprah had an office.

Maple Street in Beverly Hills.

My coworkers would see her from time to time.

I only saw her once, from a a distance, but many of my coworkers had seen her, walked past her in the hallway, rode in the elevator with her.

She's a billionare - celebrity doesn't get any bigger than Oprah.

As far as I know, she was never alone, but she did not have an army surrounding her either.

Coz...try to keep up...I already posted this. Please click on the link.


I video-tech'd this shoot, 2 days

He was driving around with his dad in a Dodge Sprinter van. That's it. We all parked in the same lot, both days. No security. Nothing.

The cops were there part-time because we shut down a couple streets, but they had nothing to do with providing security for him.


Again, Coz - no armed guards, no security, nothing. I was there. Same with McCartney, who has as much reason to need armed guards as anyone not named Obama.


Oh...and you can walk right up and knock on Brad and Angelina's front door - believe it or not. it's a gated community, but no guards - you just wait for the gate to open and follow whoever opened it. Producer I work for lives right across from them. It's a normal, middle-class neighborhood - again, believe it or not. Supposedly they want their kids growing up as normally as possible. Like someone already posted, no one wants to bring their kids up surrounded by armed guards.

And again, that's on set, and we're not talking about that.

Oh, almost forgot because it was 4.5 years ago

Tech'd this one too

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD3NKdSUyQg

Half of it was at DiCaprio's house, the rest on a sound stage in Marina Del Rey


A PA ran the gate at the house, and that was it. ZERO security at either location.

And they were armed? They're going to start shooting people on a movie set?

Really, Coz?

When in the history of making movies have you ever heard of a bodyguard drawing a weapon on someone on a movie set?

As someone who knows someone who might be Hispanic, I find that racially insensitive.
