Mira Booted Out of Her 600 Square-Footer

Mira SorvinoBack in 1993 when Mira Sorvino was filming Mighty Aphrodite, she started renting a “prewar, rent-stabilized one-bedroom on the Upper West Side near Central Park.” She has kept the apartment to this day to use when she is working in New York. But now her landlord is kicking her out. Says the Oscar winning actress, “My landlords are selling the building, and they want the units cleared so they can turn it into a luxury rental, even though it’s a one-bedroom. I mean, it’s 600 square feet! No great digs, but I loved it and now it’s probably going to go for $4,000 a month.” Since Mira does not live there full-time (she lives with hubby actor Christopher Backus and their 2 kids), the landlord has an even stronger arguement.

So, how does this story become an ecorazzi-worthy bit? Many, many, many actors have multiple homes, but rarely (or never!) do we hear of a “second home” being a 600-square-foot apartment. Smaller is greener, and 600sf = small!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
