Edward Norton has been in a lot of movies. He’s even been in a fair number of pretty good movies, but he always has that look about him. You know. THIS look. The look he has on in this picture, which also features Cameron Diaz making sure her pants fit the right way.
They’re attending a Tommy Hilfiger Party at a place called “Bar Room” in Miami on January thirty-first, 1999. And while both of them have been in plenty of movies since then, it’s hard to say their stars have risen since this picture was taken. Sure, Diaz was in the “Shrek” films, and Norton was Bruce Banner in the 2008 “The Incredible Hulk,” but still.
Heh, She's a Pinhead
While this picture is supposed to be focused on the two stars in the center – Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore – our eye is certainly drawn to the unnamed woman on the left side. It looks like she's wearing a headdress of bowling pins.
This pic is from the premiere of “The Big Lebowski” on February 23rd, 1998, and we'd have to guess that's why there are so many bowling pins all over the place. A lot of the action in that movie takes place in a bowling alley. Did the movie really come out then? Huh, what do you know? We thought it was older.
It's Time to Be Notorious
One of the things you have to do if you want to be famous is do something worth the fame. That can mean starring in hit movies, releasing genre-defying music, or dancing backup for Janet Jackson like JLo did. This picture, taken in 1999, tells us that she also danced on tables at fancy parties.
Who's her makeup-obsessed friend? It's none other than Donatella Versace. You know, the fashion designer who makes expensive, fancy clothes? There's got to be something else she did; hold on. Nope, that's pretty much all she's done. She's that one famous lady with huge, puffy lips. Ah, there we go, she was in “Zoolander” as herself.
He Even Made This Picture Worse
It looks like these two are about to come to blows. Or, there's a serious business pitch going on. People are ignoring them, or staring worriedly. But who are these two combatants? That's Vince Vaughn on the left, in the red hat, and wearing the black hat is Michael Rapaport.
This picture is from the year 2000, back before people realized having Vince Vaughn in your movie generally isn't a good idea. Why are these two talking and/or arguing in Chinatown? Maybe Rapaport saw the 1998 “Psycho” remake. Other than that, we don't have a clue. Hopefully, these two have patched things up by now.
Are You Sure She's Famous?
If we hadn't been told that this was Sarah Jessica Parker (from “Sex in the City” fame, but you knew that already), we wouldn't have been able to guess it. She looks quite different now, seeing as how this picture is from 1995, and it was before Parker had taken off.
“Sex in the City” wouldn't hit the tube until 1998, but then Parker would be raking in the awards – Emmys, SAG awards, and multiple Golden Globes. In this pic, however, she's just relaxing at an AIDS research benefit party. Little did she know that in a few years, she'd skyrocket to fame.
