Patrick Wilson's Love Affair with LA
by LESLEY MCKENZIE
Patrick Wilson has proved his acting chops in a diverse range of roles, including Tony-nominated Broadway performances in The Full Monty and Oklahoma! and a superhero turn in Watchmen. This month Wilson stars on the big screen opposite Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams in the comedy Morning Glory. We asked the former LA resident (who now calls New York City home) to give us his favorite aspects of the City of Angels.
LA is unbeatable as far as weather goes, but I love a change of seasons. I didn’t get that in Florida where I grew up.
It’s really all about In-N-Out Burger when I’m on the West Coast—my first stop from the airport.
Marix Tex Mex Cafe in Santa Monica—Dos Equis on tap and good Mexican food to go with it.
The Santa Monica Stairs when they’re not crowded
The jazz clubs Downtown
