Brush with fame game--Monday!! Jerry Maguire--Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr.

We worked as extras in Jerry Maguire for 1 long day!!! This movie was as a volunteer, but they fed us all day and gave away prizes, we did not win any but the experience was so awesome!!!
We were at Sun Devil Stadium and the scenes they shot that day was when Cuba's character gets hurt and Tom runs out of that tunnel, we also watched alot of the football game scenes being filmed!!! Tom came out a few times with the help of a micro-phone and spoke and also drew out one of the winning tickets for a prize!!!!! He is NOT Tall at all!!!!! I was stunned --maybe 5 feet 9 inches???
No Cameras were allowed on set AT ALL!!! They searched you!!!! We also had a cardboard dummy friend that sat in between each real person, to make the stadium look full!!!!!
Other movies I have worked on again with NO pictures was Terminal Velocity with Charly Sheen the scenes I was in on this film were in downtown Phoenix near the State Capital building and I also worked on Waiting to Exhale with Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett at the Arizona Biltmore Shopping Center. I have more movie and commercial adventures to share in the coming weeks!!!!!

I can't believe it. I went to Sedona with a famous movie person, and road in your car, ate lunch with you, and didn't even get your autograph. How dumb was that?? Sounds like you have had a lot of fun doing this type of thing. Who would have thought?

Hope you trip is going good and that you are enjoying your daughter and sister, and the time away. Hopefully your house will still be standing when you get back home. Have a wonderful blessed time.

So many things going on. Will email about them later. Love you Jamie, Hugs, Sherry

ya Tom Cruise is not very tall. He has been in Louisville several times, since he has relatives here. How do you know when they are filming? Do they put out a call for extras?

I had read somewhere that Tom was not tall...I bet we would be stunned about a lot of stars in real life!

Hi Mimi.
Blessings to you!
This had to be fun as an extra for the movies.
I feel rested after my short break preparing for company and having company.
We shopped til we dropped and that's the truth.
God Bless,

I was telling Cody you have seen so many famous people, and he was like who? I know he wouldn't believe me...so I showed him all the fun posts you've done. Wow! I must say you live one of the most exciting lives. Always full of fun and a good story to tell. I couldn't help but remember the good old days when my family got to be extras in "Sandlot". It was so fun, and we got paid too! Life is just different infront of the camera's and lights! Can't wait to hear about more fame!

The first time I saw him with Katie Holmes, I knew he was a short man! Have a great trip!

We're at Topsail Hill state park R.V.ing! I actually have felt like a missing person today! Nothing like going down to the beach and leaving your cell phone in the R.V.!!!

No pictures with Tom? Oh boo! I've heard that he is pretty short. I'd probably be disappointed if I saw him in person.

I saw TC once and he is short, short....

Keep up the good work
