Today was awesome - Warner Bros studio tour was unreal - we had soooo much fun and learnt so much about films and sitcoms - the museum was unreal because it had displays of costumes from Harry Potter, the Matrix, 300, Casablanca and heaps more Warner Bros Films (& Supernatural!!!). It was unreal to see Heath Ledger's Joker costumes from the Dark Knight ( his last film before he died)- how precious!! And we all loved seeing how they make sitcoms such as 2 and a Half Men, Friends and we sat down at the set from The Big Bang Theory. We had photos taken waiting for the Hogwart's Express and in Central Perk ( a cafe in FRIENDS). We didn't see any movie stars but we did see the cars and trailers for the Cold Case crew - Dave was so disappointed because he looovvveeess Lily Rush!!! A fantastic tour which we highly recommend! After that we drove into Hollywood to check out the famous sign and to walk along the Walk of Fame at the Graumann's Chinese Theatre to look at all the celebrity's hand and footprints. We drove through Sunset Boulevard and onto Rodeo Drive - we didn't see any movie stars and we definitely didn't shop (beyond our budgets) but it was cool to walk along the streets!!! Back home meant a rest or swim at the beach before dinner.
