We were beyond thrilled today by chance to meet one of the Film’s Stars, John Corbett, who reprises his role as Ian Miller. Although admittedly, Corbett wasn’t thrilled about being spotted, he was a perfect Gentleman taking a minute to walk back over and clarify the situation. “These guys come right up to our home in California and we’re tired of it”, he says. “I reacted that way because this is my home for the next while”. “It’s my job to protect Bo also”, he says about his stunning Wife, whom we also admire greatly for her work and her support of the Horse Racing industry. I appreciate more than anything his explanation and have so much respect for Corbett, and are glad we had a proper conversation. After explaining himself, we have a better picture where he’s coming from and he was beyond nice to take a Selfie with me after everything. Usually a “no” is a “no”. Anyone who knows me understands how huge a Sex and the City Fan I am and knows how happy this makes me. Aidan is a personal Fave.
