Filming for the upcoming movie, Red, took place in my building/1 King West yesterday. I sat in the lobby for pretty much the entire day, hoping to meet Bruce Willis & Morgan Freeman (apparently they were shooting here). In the end I never got a chance to. I missed Bruce Willis by like 2 minutes though - when I went to the bar, the bartender told me he was just there having a coffee. I also heard that Joaquin Phoenix was here too.
As soon as I updated about him (Joaquin Phoenix) on my FB/Twitter I started to get emails, FB messages & Twitter messages from reporters at "E!" asking me if they could talk to me about it!! lol that was pretty cool. I don't follow celebrities at all but my friend told me the whole thing about Joaquin Phoenix quitting acting..so I guess that was why they were all so interested. He may or may not have been filming here - I just heard the rumour but didn't see him personally!
The picture above is part of the set. The film crew took over like our entire bottom floor (where the bank vault is) ..the first time I accidentally stumbled onto it while going to the path..the second time I went again and asked very nicely if I could take a look around. There were a couple men there who said it was fine. They were so nice. So I looked around the set a bit (it was so different from before!) and managed to snap like 2 quick shots before I got kicked out by this woman..here's the sneaky pics I managed to get:
My lobby was PACKED
