Clement von Franckenstein’s connection with ‘Perverts & Whores’ Jennifer Aniston and Oscars Winner Julianne Moore
“Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread like viruses do”. – Malcolm T. Gladwell author The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
I finish a meeting in Malibu and call an old friend of mine actor Clement Von Franckenstein who has just wrapped working with Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, and George Clooney in ‘Hail Ceasar’ a film directed by Ethan Coen and Joel Coen.
Clement wants to know what is going on in Toronto with Julianne Moore. So I explain that she is both nominated and a presenter at Canadian Screen Awards taking place on Sunday in Toronto. I also explain to Clement that I can not watch ‘Californication’ without thinking of him, “Did you see my episode ‘Perverts & Whores’?” he asks and informs me that it was directed by Julianne Moore’s husband Bart Freundlich (the younger husband Julianne referred at the Oscars). So that is the connection with Oscar Winner Julianne Moore what is one of Clement’s lines he delivers “Jennifer Aniston is attached”. So now added to the mix is Jennifer Aniston. This is Hollywood.
In Hollywood everything is about big. Big movie, big budget, big screens, big studios, yet the social network is tight, and small and everyone who is a player in Hollywood is somehow directly or indirectly connected and news travels fast. Clement a Eton College boy is on the inside of this circle of Hollywood,and ever since I met him on the famed cricket field pitch under the Hollywood sign Clement has been working, this alone in Hollywood is unique. Until the time he came to US, he sang in nightclubs and had a lot of performing experience before getting into acting at age 27. His first job was in the mini-series QB VII (1974) starring Ben Gazzara and Lee Remick Check out the scene of Clement in ‘Californication’ “Perverts & Whores” and his work in this show-real.
I walk out of the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica and walk over to the Ivy on The Shore to have lunch with a Oscars winner. Arriving at the Ivy on The Shore, I sit down in the lounge not the bar, and have a shot of Don Julio Reposado, accompanied with a Ketel One Vodka. I try to reach The Artist Zoobs, I get his voice mail. I hit him up on Facebook messenger and he lets me know he is about to start a photo shoot with rocking designer Loree Rodkin. Visit Loree Rodkin site to find out how rocking she is.
While I sit down for lunch with a very excited Oscar winner, Zoobs and Loree rocked this out. Check it out on Zoobs Instagram, he is doing some really cool stuff and give both these talents a follow.
