This past week we had a visit from Ashton Kutcher, who was here for the Melbourne Premiere of his movie 'Killers'. Stopping off in Sydney first, he visited a wildlife park and tickled a koala. "Koalas have two thumbs, that kind of freaked me out. Imagine how fast you could text with two thumbs", he said.
More of my vintage was the presence of dishy Robert de Niro, here filming his latest spy thriller, 'The Killer Elite'.
His scenes, as 'a wily veteran assassin' were shot at several locations in Melbourne and producers were able to depict Paris, London and Oman.
Shooting was ahead of schedule and Robert fled Melbourne's winter for a holiday in Bali with his wife and son.
