“I Had Your Number and I Just Called Information and Got Your Address.”

My stalking hero Mike, from MovieShotsLA, has done it yet again!  🙂   The two of us have been looking for Ashton Kutcher’s parents’ house from my fave romantic comedy A Lot Like Love  for a while now.  I really had no hope of ever finding the home, as I had no idea what city it was located in and I couldn’t find any nearby landmarks, such as street signs or addresses, while watching the movie.  But then last week, while doing some cyber-stalking, Mike found this article which featured a brief interview with Encino homeowner Ramona Hennesy, who mentioned that her home was featured in A Lot Like Love.  Eureka!  Once we knew the home was located in Encino, it was simply a matter of searching public records to find the address.  And, voila – just a few hours later I was in my car headed to Encino to stalk the property.  🙂  YAY!

Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot of the house to see from the street and it looks a lot different in person than it appeared in A Lot Like Love.  In the article mentioned above, Ramona says that producers turned her carport into Ashton Kutcher’s bedroom during filming, so the home was definitely altered for the production.  And to be honest, when I first arrived there, I actually wasn’t entirely convinced it was the same house from the movie.  There is currently a wall of tall hedges surrounding the property that didn’t appear in the movie.  But when I got home, I looked at some old Google maps images of the house and the hedges didn’t appear in those photos either, so it seems that they are new additions.  Why, oh why, do these homeowners have to go and change things????

The Encino home was featured several times in the movie, most prominently in the scene when Amanda Peet’s character shows up at Ashton’s parents house to finally confess her love for him.   When he asks her how she found his address she says “I had your number and I just called information and got your address.”  LOVE IT!  That’s so something I would do!  🙂  LOL!

As always, a big THANK YOU goes out to Mike!!! 🙂

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  🙂

Stalk It: The A Lot Like Love  house is located at 17050 Magnolia Boulevard in Encino.

    Congrats to you and Mike on another great stalking score!

    Now, go find the house that Julia Roberts rents in the movie Erin Brockovich. Not a fancy house by any means but one of those……I really want to find it houses!
