Celebs’ Homes Gutted in LA Wildfire, Terminator Premiere Cancelled
A wildfire on Monday, 28 October, gutted around five multi-million dollar homes in one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods of Los Angeles. Many celebrities were forced to flee in the middle of the night. Among the places under evacuation orders was the posh area of Brentwood.
Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to say he was among the thousands who had to evacuate overnight. “We evacuated safely at 3:30 this morning. If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out. Right now I am grateful for the best firefighters in the world, the true action heroes who charge into the danger to protect their fellow Californians. #GettyFire,” Arnold wrote.
A red-carpet premiere for Schwarzenegger’s new movie, Terminator: Dark Fate, that was scheduled for Monday night was cancelled due to the fires in the area.
The Terminator premiere had been scheduled to take place in Hollywood, several miles from the fire zone. Food intended for the premiere party was donated to local American Red Cross shelters that were housing the fire evacuees, Paramount Pictures said in a statement.
Agents of SHIELD actor Clark Gregg and Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter also took to social media to say that they had been forced to leave their homes. “Safe in a hotel room with my family and dogs. Awakened and evacuated by the amazing alert system from #lafd #Grateful #GettyFire,” wrote Clark.
