Bridget Moynahan: Rock My World
In The Recruit, Bridget Moynahan plays Colin Farrell's serious-minded love interest, so we decided to loosen her up in a rock star fantasy photo splash at the luxe Summit Hotel Bel-Air.
Behind the Scenes
The story continues...
1. Maybe "girlfriend" roles aren't so bad. After locking lips with Chris Noth on "Sex and the City," John Cusack in Serendipity and Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears, Bridget Moynahan gets to steam up the screen with "It" boy Colin Farrell in the upcoming spy thriller The Recruit. But the movie, which costars Al Pacino, gives the 30-year-old a bigger assignment than just bed-hopping. Moynahan chopped her locks to get serious as Layla, Farrell's love interest, fellow CIA trainee...and suspected double agent. In real life, the only thing suspect about Moynahan was her decision to star in Coyote Ugly. And yet the admitted nail-biter and knitting hobbyist seems to be leaving her fellow barmaids in the dust as she boogies her way toward A-list status. For those of you wondering who Moynahan plays the "girlfriend" role for offscreen, it's Scott Rosenberg, screenwriter of--wouldn't you know it?--_Beautiful Girls_.
2. There's a whiff of Rat Pack elegance and decadence at the Luxe Summit Hotel Bel-Air. Somewhat secretly tucked onto a seven-acre estate right next to the famed Getty Center, the Luxe is where Hollywood lets its hair down. It's low-key enough for privacy fanatics like Sean Penn and Clint Eastwood, yet modernized with a full day spa to satisfy the likes of Alanis Morissette, Maria Shriver and Shaquille O'Neal. Guests hole up with scripts or get fit for a role on the tennis courts and in the outdoor heated pool. Best of all, this boutique getaway is the antithesis of corporate; because it's privately owned, it's got a quirky, unique character that makes stars feel at home rather than stuck in another anonymous pit stop.
