I live in Santa Monica somewhat near Hollywood and all but I'm usually oblivious to celebrities. I used to be a gym rat at a local gym near here. From time to time, I would notice this other Asian girl because we were the only two (it's a small gym.) Sometimes she would go everyday at all hours and there were times when I wouldn't see her for months (did I mention I was a former gym rat?) We would take certain classes together and later became better acquaintances. A couple of times she even came over because I live across a great dance studio. Months later, after not seeing her around, I found out she was in The Scorpion King and Xmen2. Yeah, I'm talking about Kelly Hu. She does not look at all like her screen image but IMO even better because I've seen her without makeup (really, who wears makeup to the gym?) and with her hair always tied up. I feel stupid for never recognizing her or asking what she did for a living. It's probably because she acts very uncelebrity-like and is really sweet, humble, and unpretentious.
