Gone are the days where South Africa is “too far to visit” or “too small to tour”… South Africa is now firmly on the map for top celebrities to visit, tour, film and holiday in. Take today for example… We have Rihanna hanging out in Cape Town (check her Instagram feed to see pics). Keri Hilson and Anthony Hamilton were hanging out in Macufe over the weekend. Idris Elba was jamming it up at DStv’s Delicious Food & Music Festival two weeks ago and now Taylor Swift, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and a few other big Hollywood A-listers are apparently in the country too. They’ll be getting to work on a new film called The Giver, which is set for release in August next year. I also know that John Cleese was here shooting the third installment of Spud… SA is #Winning!!!
If you’re in the Cape Town area, be on the lookout for Ms. Swift and crew. I’d love to get some pics of them, but I’m in the Joziwood at the moment, so I’ll leave it up to you. Send them to me on firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me: @JasonVonBerg.
There are loads of other events coming up in the next couple of months that will see big stars heading to our shores including:
Mandela – Long Walk To Freedom world premiere
