Hollywood Days - Leonardo DiCaprio

Pin It Now!
If you are new to my blog, on Wednesdays I post about my experience in Hollywood as a former child/teen actress. If you want to start at the beginning of these posts go here. If you are thinking, "Hey this isn't Wednesday!" I want you to know that you are right. It is not Wednesday.
------

Today I did another guest post over at Surfewife's blog about my experience with Leonardo DiCaprio.
And I put up a new clip here from when I guest starred as Cheryl Murray on "Growing Pains." In this scene I am the new Cheryl -- with my hair down, no glasses, and the confidence to stand up for myself. (Here is the old Cheryl.)
You might also recognize "Sasha" in this scene . . .


On On Surferwife's blog there are two more clips -- one from "Growing Pains" (scene with Kirk and Leo) and one from "The New Lassie when Leonardo guest starred on an episode. Check it out.

Hahaha! Hilary Swank! Man, you don't often see her in such a snarky role. I like "Cheryl's" little head toss when she's talking to the boys. You show em!

My hubby used to wear those awesome sweaters like Leo had on. All I'm going to say is "THANK GOD he doesn't anymore." Looks like someone raided Dr. Huxtable's closet.

random fact #507: my feet have been the same size since 5th grade (5/12), which means my army boots were a size 3, which means i get about half of my shoes from the kids' section so they are cheaper:))

Total random fact: loose hair (as in not attached) makes me get the dry heaves, much to the amusement of my family.

Oh, and I'm exactly the same height as MiMi.

Thank you for these interesting posts(both here and on the other blog)! I watched GP after I fell in love with Leo in 1998. But then I saw all the episodes of the 7th season and love them. There's really noting with LEO in it that I don't like...*smiles*

Random Fact: I try to wear colors that match the food I prepare each day because I WILL spill on myself. Every time.

Random fact: I actually miss teaching middle school (though, not enough to stop being a stay-at-home mom). Another odd fact, I wanted to look like you back when you were on Lassie :)

Ooh! Ooh! I'd love a free copy of your book! (If not, I'll buy one from ya in October :) )

Here's my random fact:
I learned the following poem in 8th grade:
"Procrastination is a crime, it only leads to sorrow; I can stop at any time, I think I will TOMORROW!"

And here I am 20 years later, still planning to stop tomorrow :)

I do not have 'hell' in my name. Hence...Michele. And not Mic'hell'e. And that's the reason....very true and very random.
