Their body guards wait while they finish dinner at Sunset Boulevard restaurants, and the paparazzi stalk them at the Silver Lake Boulevard 7-Eleven. The Hollywood Celebrity set appears to be migrating east, making Silver Lake a popular destination. The neighborhood has long been a hangout and home to artists, actors and musicians. But hardly any of them would ever appear on the cover, or at least mentioned inside, People magazine – until now.
The young stars of Star Trek, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, live in Silver Lake and have been photographed walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir or grabbing a cup of coffee (Pine prefers LA Mill; Quinto sips at Intelligenstia). Drew Barrymore hangs out a lot in Los Feliz but is also no stranger to Silver Lake, with sightings at Madame Matisse and even further east at EchoPlex in Echo Park. In perhaps the most notable A List sighting, actress Jennifer Aniston apparently made her Silver Lake debut at a dinner last week at Cliff’s Edge, where she was joined by Gerard Butler.
“Jennifer Aniston east of La Brea? I do believe that was a first for her if you don’t count concerts at The Greek,” said a Los Angeles journalist whose staff follows the comings-and-goings and air-kissings of Hollyood celebrities. “Funny, because her ex Brad Pitt is a regular at the Dresden [in Los Feliz]. He loves a little Marty and Elaine from time to time. Maybe that is why Jen stays west of LaBrea.”
Will Aniston and other A Listers keeping coming back to Silver Lake? The valet at Cliff’s Edge certainly hopes so, according to the Daily News story. “Both Jen and Gerard are great tippers,” he said.
