Star sightings: Lady Gaga, Ben Stiller, Goldie Hawn, Sammy Hagar and more!

Lady Gaga, Ben Stiller, Goldie Hawn and Sammy Hagar are but a few of the celebs who have been spotted in Atlanta over the past week or so.

Goldie and her daughter Kate Hudson had brunch at R. Thomas on Sunday. Tipsters say Goldie was looking all put together — straight hair, perfect makeup, while Kate had a casual elegant look going, with her hair in a ponytail. Kate is here filming “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” with Kiefer Sutherland and Liev Schreiber. That movie’s here for a short time, like maybe just this week. It’s been filming downtown (Castleberry Hill area) and Midtown/Piedmont Park. Kiefer has been spotted at places like Veni Vidi Vici, and South City Kitchen.

Lady Gaga was at Holeman & Finch last Thursday night and so was Ben Stiller (they were not together). We think she’s in town because she is dating .. a vampire? (Reports link her and “Vampire Diaries” actor Taylor Kinney). Tipster says she had drinks and snacks at H&F and had a nice low-key time.

Gaga also took in one of the final Braves games of the season. She reserved one of the box suites so she could watch last Tuesday’s game in privacy. Tipsters say she showed up looking casual, drinking a brew and just enjoying the game. (If only the Gaga magic had rubbed off on the Braves.) She was also spotted at Church (the store, not a house of worship) and we hear she also ran by the Clermont Inn, which sounds about right.

Why is Ben Stiller here you may ask? Filming “Neighborhood Watch,” with Adam Sandler and Vince Vaughn. More on that to come.

Oh speaking of the Braves, Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman were spotted at Tavern 99 in Buckhead Sunday during local musician Scotty Cram’s performance.

Comic Adam Carolla, in town for his show at the Tabernacle over the weekend, checked out Varasano’s pizza. And last Wednesday must have been 80s rocker night at Hudson Grille in Midtown. Sammy Hagar and Eddie Money dined there. Maybe they were hoping to spot Justin Bieber. He and Selena Gomez had a little date night there about a week before, with Usher as chaperone!

All the Braves players must have man crushes on Scotty Cram – Peter Moylan is always hitting him up on twitter as well.

“Sammy Hagar and Eddie Money dined there. Maybe they were hoping to spot Justin Bieber. ”

Why the Hager/Money slam? It just goes to show the author of this column knows zero about
rock n roll. Maybe they gained mainstream popularity in the 80’s but Hagar and Money go back to the 70’s and made some classic rock music. I doubt our writer has ever heard of Montrose?
“…looking for J Bieber?…” Do not insult or elder statesman of rock. Bieber wishes he could sing like Hager and Money.

Scotty Cram is one of the best live music performers in the ATL.

M Fender, no slight intended. Just figured I would mention the Biebs and Selena had been there as well.

Jennifer,

Thanks for the reply.

I guess it all relates to your age group.

Holy poop M Fender, all I can say to you is ‘Lighten Up Frances.” I took Jennifer’s remark in the funny way she meant it and got a chuckle. (I wonder if Sammy and Eddie even know who Justin is?)

“The Clermont Inn”. What’s that? Could we mean the Clermont Lounge? The Motel closed years ago….
