TIM ALLEN: FLOOR PLEASE
Posh Beverly Hills hotels are loaded with celebrities and out-of-towners during award season. A recent elevator ride at The four Seasons proved amusing. Tim Allen got on the first floor elevator and it filled up with children, visitors, and employees. As the packed lift slowly rode a little girl remarked to her mom “It’s crowded in here!” From the back of the elevator Tim piped up “That’s because it’s MY elevator!” The mother turned to look at him and gasped with recognition, and other riders laughed. When the ride reached the 8th floor there was a slightly haggard looking woman in black tights wearing a lot of makeup. She looked at the crowd and said, in a VERY deep and familiar voice “I think I’ll wait for the next elevator!” the door closed and people suddenly realized it was almost unrecognizable Kathleen Turner! (currently doing Virginia Woolf onstage in LA) The little girl asked her mom “Why didn’t she get on?” From the back Tim joked “Because it’s MY elevator!” It was a fun ride.
