Ssh! There is a famous Mexican actor in town. I see him a lot. He picks up his laundry at the dry cleaner near our spa; he drinks coffee at La Ventana on Sollano in the mornings. I´m told he keeps a very humble apartment and comes to town often. He walks around town, and nobody fusses, so I´m going to protect his right to enjoy San Miguel undisturbed, and not say his name, but I will tell you that he´s had parts in many acclaimed Mexican films, and he was a baddie as well in the second installment of the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Speaking of Famous People, once I modeled for Michelle Pfieffer, back when I was modeling in art classes. Once my husband gave a massage to the actor who played the father on the TV show Clarissa Knows It All. And I massaged the actor who played the filmmaker in the movie, Pancho Villa. I also gave a massage to Salma Hayek´s stunt double when El Mariachi 2 was being filmed in San Miguel! Yeah, that's me, rubbing shoulders with the hoi polloi (which can be taken to mean the common people or the society set.)
