I posted a pic of Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield after eating at Café Cluny in the West Village on Tuesday. But what I didn’t see until later were the signs they held up that featured nonprofit organizations to divert the focus away from themselves and towards the things that really matter to them.
Emma’s sign reads:
“Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do:”
Andrew’s note says:
“Here’s to the stuff that matters. Have a great day!”
This couple is actively involved in these social causes – and the organizations mentioned appear to be VERY happy about the publicity. Paparazzi scrutiny is intense and is not going away anytime soon. I used to work for both Us Weekly and OK magazine so I understand all too well how this works. Now I post pics of people walking around in New York City every so often (and Red Carpet) but the fascination with famous folks for me wore off long ago. Stone and Garfield are over it too, apparently. A lot of others celebs use the attention they get for good, as well. If these moments get ignored by paps and the press, that is REALLY a shame. I really like these real-life super heroes better than the on-screen ones. Check out the links above. And share this, please. The “quotation” post yesterday got 150+ likes on Facebook and Twitter – we can do better than that!
