LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT IV
Musician and actress Caroline Vreeland on who made her heart skip a beat.
“Two years ago, my friend — an aspiring screenwriter and director — wrote an independent movie based on my life called Femme.
I’d never dabbled in acting before, but he asked me to play myself. We considered casting one of my friends as ‘Arthur,’ a character based on my real life ex-boyfriend, but I decided there was no way I could have romantic chemistry — there was a sex scene — with a friend on camera.
The director put an ad on Craigslist to fill the role, and the scariest monsters responded to the post — [some of] the people looked like they’d just escaped from jail.
One day, I was told ‘Arthur’ would show up at my doorstep in 10 minutes. I was so nervous, and preparing for the worst, but in walked Cameron, the HOTTEST guy I’ve ever seen. He came with his son, so all day my roommate and I called him the DILF.
We filmed a love scene that day — December 4th — and, within minutes of meeting each other, snuggled under the covers.
Cameron said that when he first saw me, he thought to himself, ‘This is the type of girl I’m supposed to be with.’ We’ve been together ever since.
Nothing came of the film — it was never finished — but I got my Cammy out of it.
