Film stars get taste of Baltimore during weekend shoot

The Baltimore Sun

Celebrity sightings continued this weekend as the cast of He's Just Not That Into You worked and dined around town.

Filming, which started Friday in Little Italy, will tentatively continue through tomorrow. Based on a self-help humor book, the movie brought stars Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly and Kevin Connolly to Baltimore for the past few days.

In Mount Vernon, restaurants Thairish and the Helmand were temporarily redecorated Saturday with new lights, a new door and a new name: Red Seven.

A few fans were able to watch as Connolly, star of the HBO series Entourage, filmed a scene in Mount Vernon Square.

But this weekend wasn't all work. Johansson and Jimmy Fallon, who is engaged to one of the film's producers, stopped into the swanky Aldo's Restaurant in Little Italy for a late dinner Friday.

Then yesterday afternoon, Johansson stopped into Jimmy's Restaurant in Fells Point for a crab cake and her first taste of scrapple.

"She looked so pretty in person," said Pamala Jollymore, a waitress at Jimmy's. "She's so gorgeous, and she was really nice, too."
