We’re with Jimmy Kimmel when it comes to preserving the privacy of celebrities, but if you see an architect “visibly intoxicated” or looking like Jabba the Hutt, heaven help you, send that baby in. We’re thrilled when architects are high-profile enough to be included in things like Defamer’s Hollywood PrivacyWatch, where Frank Gehry was spotted working out at the Gold’s Gym in his ‘hood (Gehry is seen demonstrating the size of his biceps in the photo above):
Of all the freaky-deaky things: Frank Gehry…at Venice’s Gold’s Gym? There was a funny moment when the master builder snapped at some meathead who dropped his 9,000-lb. weights to the floor with a deafening crash. Then Meathead snapped back at Gehry, “Ya wanna hear some noise, go to one a your damn sites!” The whole thing is just so surreal. After Bilbao, why ab crunches?
