Nia Long and Diane Warren had an unusual start to their friendship.
Grammy, Emmy, and Golden Globe winner Warren was killing some time before a premiere when she headed to the nearby Neiman Marcus. In her rush, however…
“I hit a car,” Warren told THR. “I gave my info to the attendants with my insurance, driver’s licence, and the phone number for a friend.”
Warren headed inside to buy a jacket before going to the premiere of “Breakthrough” when she received a call from the car’s owner: Nia Long.
Luckily, the “NCIS: Los Angeles” actor wasn’t upset.
“We hit it off,” said Warren, “and now we’re talking about having dinner. She wasn’t upset at all. What are the chances?”
To make circumstances even stranger. The two just happened to be at the same Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Sunset Boulevard the next day.
“This time we ran into each other,” said Warren laughing. “I love smashes — just not car smashes.”
