My little town of Warrenton, VA had a huge celebrity sighting today. Clint Eastwood, (Yes, Dirty Harry baby!!) director and co-producer of “J. Edgar” the movie was filming a scene on the steps of our old court house today. Big news travels fast, especially in a small town, so the streets were filled with adoring fans and some wanna-be paparazzi (that would be me, Tehehe).
Although Mr. Eastwood was the only shinning “star” in our little town today, Leo DiCaprio is set to portray J. Edgar Hoover in the movie. A great deal of controversy surrounds the life of the FBI’s first director J. Edgar. Hoover spent 48 years creating and instituting many of the crime fighting techniques we still use today. Unfortunately, he was also accused of abusing his power and his personal life was filled with rumors of closeted cross-dressing and homosexuality. I am a huge fan of both Leo and Clint, I know they will make “J. Edgar” a movie we all will want to watch.
Here are some of my paparazzi shots of Clint turning my little town of Warrenton into “tinsel town” for a day.
