You have to watch this video in the gallery above of Eminem showing Jimmy Kimmel how to rap. It's simply hysterical, and he does a major shout-out to Sherman Oaks. We know Kimmel lives in the area, but it's wonderful how he shows that he's a homie to Sherman Oaks.
He starts off first saying a shout-out to his "peeps in Compton" but then admits to Eminem he knows no one in Compton.
"OK, I'll say a shout-out to my homies in Sherman Oaks, I know people there," Kimmel says. That is how Kimmel's rapper handle Briefcase Joe is born.
Demi Moore has been seen a lot around Sherman Oaks hydrating at Earth Bar, and she is one of those who did an "intervention" on Jimmy Kimmel Live in Hollywood recently after Matt Damon starred in the opening the show as a kidnapper, tying Kimmel, seated, to a chair with duct tape and gagging him with his own tie. (See the photo in the gallery above.)
Surrounding Damon and Kimmel are Andy Garcia, Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Affleck, Sarah Silverman and Demi Moore. . . . .
The international Britney Spears website posted photos of the Femme Fatale (her new album) as she was passing through Sherman Oaks to grab some coffee. She looked great, no weird haircut, no mysterious project. (See the pix above.) . . .
Ms. Sherman Oaks has heard this for a few months, but we finally nailed it down. It's true! Filmmaker and director Baz Luhrmann went incognito to an early test screening of The Great Gatsby at the Sherman Oaks ArcLight. It happened once in November and then a more recent one with Leonard DiCaprio also sneaking in to see the audience reaction even though the film wasn't completed and still needed some music and some CG work yet to be done. The film also stars Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan and it runs about two-and-a-half hours but may be cut back a bit more before final release.
The director donned a maroon baseball cap pulled low over his silver hair. The actor came in and sat in the back just after the lights went down. The audience loved the film, so we're told. It's scheduled to come out later this year. . . .
So who did you see around?
