My friend Lauren is a spirited, intelligent, movie-loving young lass who's already planning to take Hollywood by storm. (As pictured at right, she is in talks with a group of ducks to option their life story for two sacks of breadcrumbs and a pretzel.)
I met Lauren when I was working at the Starbright Foundation, a nonprofit that helps sick kids. Thursday night, she was a guest speaker at a fundraising dinner for Starbright.
Her charms know no bounds because as this article shows she has scored a friendship and future working relationship with none other than Steven Speilberg. With nothing more than a wheelchair and a wink, she's already catapulted past most aspiring filmmakers in this town.
So bravo to Lauren, I say! Hoorah and hooray! Move that wheelchair aside so I can start kissing your ass - you'll be running Hollywood before I know it.
