Taking care of the day’s business matters, Kristen Stewart was spotted heading to an office building in Toluca Lake, California on Friday.
Fresh off of a time-consuming Allure photo shoot, the Bella Swan cutie was decked out in a navy blue t-shirt with jeans as she strolled past paparazzi.
In related news, Kristen’s “New Moon” co-star Michael Sheen recently chatted with Empire about what it was like working on the sure-to-be-hit “Twilight” sequel.
“It was great to work with Chris Weitz; it was a really funny set, really relaxed,” Sheen said, adding that the cast is “young and beautiful.”
Tom LaBonge News
The coming week marks the final ride in Tom’s summer evening bike ride series, Tour LaBonge.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, a shining moment in modern city history, Tom joined Councilmember Bernard Parks and the LA84 Foundation in releasing an informative brochure on the Olympic Games. The brochure will be distributed to public school students through the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Beyond the Bell program.
On Monday, Tom broke ground on a much-needed facelift at Shatto Park in Koreatown. The Dept. of Recreation and Parks will install new universal-access playground equipment, new fitness equipment for adults and new drought-tolerant landscaping. The upgrades are being funded through Quimby Funds, which are collected from condominium developers in the area.
