Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen, The Wrestler, True Blood ) was in my NYC Limo for three days last year (2008). This was before THE WRESTLER was released, where she co-starred with Mickey Rourke and before Mr. Rourke was in my NYC Limo .
Hollywood didn’t plan to use my EWR Limo Services that way, it just happened. I was given the pickup by a travel agent who we are very friendly with and uses my ORD Limo Services. I waited in the airport for this big Hollywood star and out walks this tiny little beautiful creature with eyes that grab you and force you to look into their beauty. All I could think of was , “how can they let this little girl travel all by herself”!
It was blisteringly hot and Miss Wood had on a gothic rock and roll overcoat which to me meant that she is one of those girls who are always cold. Miss Wood had looping to do in the city and stayed downtown. She initiated conversation and for the next three days I felt like I had a little niece in my NYC Town Car Limo to watch over.
She told me about her new CD, her work with Mickey Rourke, some stuff about Thirteen, and her life in the theater. She shared her sense of humor with me about Hollywood, her work with MICKEY ROURKE and her boyfriend Marilyn Manson, SHE EVEN TEXTED ME AND TOLD ME TO SAVE THE NUMBER! Miss Wood even told me that “it’s so hot, please take off your jacket, man !” Of course I couldn’t tell her that if my mother knew a client saw me out of my jacket, she’d roll over in her grave!! Naturally, I turned into a teenager wondering if she would like this or that suit each day, and I’m supposed to be Mr. cool. I suppose I won’t hear from Miss Wood again as her career gets better, and other people arrange her NYC LIMO, but this experience showed me that my reluctance to take celebrities (you never hear from them again in my biz ) was foolish. But I must confess that I do hope Evan Rachel Wood calls us again.
