Kitchen 24 and Fred 62 are great. They’re all day and all night, and I’m a big breakfast person—breakfast sandwiches, eggs, bacon. It really comes down to two eggs over easy and bacon. That’s the best, but really anything involving bacon.
Universal Studios and Citywalk
I take my eight-year-old sister Lacy there all the time. Universal is just a great place to jump on rides and have fun. And Citywalk is a good place to hang out because there’s a lot to do. I took Lacy to a Doobie Brother’s concert there once, which isn’t the best show to take an eight-year-old to, but she had a great time.
Dino’s is so good. We’ve gone there every time I’ve moved because it’s right off Hollywood Way, so we stop and get pizza along the way. Their meat lover’s pizza is the best—I would highly recommend it.
When I work out, I prefer to work out outside—the beach, swimming, hiking, yoga. Runyon is perfect for hiking, but I can only go on the weekdays, sometime between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Otherwise it’s too crowded. I used to take my dog Pearl with me, but she can’t make it anymore; she’s a 17-year-old scottie, and she doesn’t have the momentum she used to.
This place is so awesome. It’s a coffee shop right by Hollywood Towers and UCB, on that little strip of stores. They have great customer service and great people working there. I always order hot chocolate or black coffee, but I think the hot chocolate there is worth trying.
Griffith Park is a great place to go with friends. I invite them all and we get together for a barbeque—there are quite a few grill stands all around the park. They also have a merri-go-round, which is another fun place to take Lacy.
If you haven’t been to the Katsuya in Hollywood, you have to go. It’s the best one. Every chain restaurant is different, and the chefs at that one are the best. Get the yellowtail with jalapeno on top. It’s incredible.
Emporio Armani was hooking me up like crazy! They put me in a full suit for Comic-Con. It was dope. They have these amazing fabrics and designers that make the clothes unique. My clothes have to be unique—a cool design or weird buttons or something. I don’t buy a lot of clothes, but when I do, I buy nice ones.
