Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 965: Last year on Halloween I found out where certain celebs live. Is this a good strategy?
Good strategy for what? What do you plan to do with your knowledge of where they live?
One of the benefits of living in Los Angeles is that, as the tabloids say, "Celebrities are just like us." So yes, they celebrate Halloween just like us. That means that if you are trick or treating in upscale neighborhoods, there's a good chance that you can enter a haunted yard and find Jon Favreau in a superhero costume.
Do not unmask the Superhero! He is enjoying the holiday with his kids and neighbors.
It sounds like you have made some discoveries in past Halloweens and now want to go to new neighborhoods in the hopes of discovering a new celebrity lair or two. I don't understand the strategy because I can't imagine what your plan could be that wouldn't involve you somehow returning to the celebrity's home, and I can't imagine how that would be a welcomed event.
So, if you can give me a good reason why you should know where celebrities live and what you would do with this information to advance your career, I'll give you my opinion. But as it stands, I stand for privacy.
