About Greg In Hollywood editor Greg Hernandez
He knows what it’s like sitting next to Jennifer Hudson at the Oscar nominees luncheon one year and next to George Clooney the very next and how to keep cool when driving on the freeway and Elton John calls and needs to chat NOW. Then there was the time a hotel operator in London failed to put Greg’s call through to Lauren Bacall on time and her first words to him, in the unmistakable voice were: “You’re late!”
