So, yeah. When we were in LA just a short time ago for the premiere of Iron Man 3, not only did we hang out with Tony Stark, but with a whole bunch of other A-list celebrities too. I even have the pictures to prove it!! Well, the celebrities in the photos are actually wax figures at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, but close enough – right?? We spent a super fun afternoon in the wax museum posing with the stars and generally having a great time hamming it up.
I grabbed photos with a bunch of the “old school” celebrities – some of my favorites:
|Dancing with Elvis Presley|
|Playing it Cool with James Dean|
|The NEW Pink Ladies!|
I also got to hang with some more modern ladies:
|Measuring Up with J-Lo|
|Showing Madonna a Few New Moves|
And that’s Madame Tussaud herself! She started the long tradition of making lifelike wax depictions of well known public figures all the way back in the early 19th century.
It takes over 800 hours of painstaking work, including molding, measuring, painting and sculpting to make each figure. Madame Tussauds no longer relies on one person to do all this, they have a small army of highly trained wax sculptors.

I also met up with a “non-human” celeb and took E.T. for a ride:
Last, but far from least, to get my super hero style on, the MARVEL characters were there to represent and I joined them of course:
