This week they've been filming a movied called August Rush in Washington Square Park. Yesterday Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who I saw Saturday night in Bend it Like Beckham playing the coach of the soccer team, was there in the park.
First he was like, "I say, do you mind if I look at what you blokes are watching there?"
And then girls started getting brave and talking with him and he was like, "Oh, it is very nice to meet you. Oh yeah? You like my work? Why, thank you very much."
"A picture? Certainly, come right over. "
"Absolutely, you too love. And your friend. Hope you don't mind my cigarette."
Then his co-star, Freddie Highmore (from Neverland and that terrifying Chocolate Factory movie) showed up and the chaps talked about coffee with a p.a. I mean, "I say, this isn't the finest American coffee I ever had." "Yes, Willy Wonka had much better coffee in his factory!" "What can I say? I'm getting paid $5 an hour."
Something like that.
