Tony and Eva


Guess who I came across by accident yesterday? Yes, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria. They were invited to the wax museum (musée Grévin) to face Tony's wax replica... OK, the photo is terrible, i know, but, well, you cannot win everyday!

  1. Eric, actually it's quite cool this photo. You can't photograph everyone like you did Tom Cruise, but then again, at least you get to see them in person.

    I did some looking and found out that Tony Parker is the first basketball player ("basketteur" in French) to be inducted into the musée Grévin, wax museum. And that he was carved by Claus Velte in under 3 months.

    Personally, I'd be more inclined to see Desperate Housewife and rich wife of his, Gabrielle Solis...oops, I meant Eva Longoria!

  2. Eric, I had to Google the two names to know who these people were. I'm just a bit out of it, eh? :-) Still, I wonder what American TV and sports personalities are doing in a Parisian wax museum.

  4. I agree with Michael. The blurry photo looks really great. It gives the impression of the crowd trying to get near them, just like you!!! LOL

  5. I have no idea who these people are either but it looks like you have joined the 'press scrum' Eric.

    The image gives a surreal effect and despite it being blurry it creates a great effect and leads the eye to the figure in the centre who has to be Tony Parker. Right?

  6. there is a gossip that they split up last week - and now you have the truth =) maybe you can earn some money with this shot.

  7. Yeah, that's the first thing that crossed my mind: I have no idea who these people are, but I also heard something that came on Spanish TV recently, saying that they had split. You should sell this "scoop" Eric! :)

  8. I agree with Eric. You cannot win everyday. Since Michael explained who the vedettes are, I added that bit of trivia to my knowledge bank. Mais Few people who are constantly in the news are of interest to me.

  11. Oh Heck...could you put a red circle around them using PAINT. That looks alot like you up there on the right...

  12. Hmmmm...not that I pay much attention to celebrities, but here in Canada this kind of information is served up in the morning news. I thought they had broken up too.

    But I digress. That isn't the point. The point is that this is a very frantic looking picture(cool effect). It is as though Eric is being jostled about and carried along with the crowd; "desperately" (he, he)trying to catch a glimpse of little Eva. Whenever you see shots of the two Tony Parker stands head and shoulders (and head and shoulders) over Eva. You sure she is there?! ;-)

  13. Breaking up??!! Does this mean that Gabrielle...uh, I mean Eva, will soon be available? Woohoo!

    On another point, for those of you who enjoy the daily photo blogs Eric started, be sure to see the vertical search engine Fanpop. Really "cool". Be sure to click on "more links" to see all of them and you can even rate the blogs you like.

  14. Why do you say the photo is terrible Eric? How many of us get that close to "early neither by heart" (Tony Parker in French... tot ni par coeur)! Get it?

    A great site you listed Michael. I can't wait to see Eric's portal when it's ready.

  15. I am a huge fan of Desperate Housewives, but I really don't give a hoot about whom Eva Longoria is dating, although Tony Parker is mighty hot.
    Excellent shot, Eric!
    I remember once going to an ice-skating event where some famous ice-skater was present (I can't remember his name now), and when I told my husband that the guy was seating two seats beyond him, he asked me who that guy was anyway.

  16. lol Michael! Never give up hope, you never know!!!

    Love the shot too, Eirc, though I could care less about the two of them

  17. Tot ni par coeur (I love this) is hot! I once gave up a chance to photograph Meryl Streep when she was in St. Paul, because I hate jostling crowds.

  18. Oh, good, I feel better now that I realize I'm not the only one who didn't know who these 2 people are... I still like the picture, though.

    And I'm still laughing from yesterday's post, Eric, good one! :)

  19. this photo is not bad at all! maybe you hardly see who it is, but in general this one is original and cute)

  20. I have been trying for the last two hours to change the photo to use on my profile. I ended up with a big picture of me in my blog. What frustration

  21. Eva left the US last week headed for Paris to be with Tony. It was no secret. It was all over the entertainment news here. It is rumored on again off again with her relationship. She also left here with bruised ribs. She tripped on her trailer steps on set. None broke but sore. Hope Paris & Tony has her feeling better.

  22. Who's been busy with Picasa then?
    I had no idea who these people are until I read the comments!

  23. I can't wait to see Celine Dion at the Grevin!

  24. Funny here these two people are extremely famous. Probably because Tony Parker is half French and also because Desparate Housewifes is a big hit here.

    But obviously they're not that famous throughout the world then!

  25. Eric, I didn't know you've turned into a Voici (French leader people/trash/gossip magazine) reporter.
    Well, at least you do it with class: the shot is pretty artistic.

    Blague-a-part, I am amazed to see how strong the 200 years old concept of being wax-represented at Grevin or Tussaud remains vivid in all celeb's mind...

  26. Parker and Longoria is the annoying couple of the year, they just had a fight and made the spokesperson announce it to the world! They want to be in the news everyday or what?

    ReplyDelete
  27. bv, Eric does everything with class. That's why we love him!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Actually I think the photos quite cool :)

  29. I love my San Antonio Spurs but I find Parker's love life distracting to the team. I can't wait for people to get tired of Tony and Eva. They are so very tiresome here in SA.

  30. No, this is one of your best photos. Look at the slightly off centred focus, amidst the motion of the travellers around him. Love it! Your site is very interesting.
