Celebrity escort` pens tell-all book on life at the red carpet

New York - A “celebrity escort,” who has been in the business for 14 years, has now written a tell-all book titled ‘Arm Candy: A Celebrity Escort’s Tales From The Red Carpet,’ where he spills the secrets the stars would rather keep hushed.

According to the New York Post, Christopher Gaida, 38, started escorting A-listers to award shows and benefits when he was 24 and temping for MTV, the Huffington Post reported.

He has since been to 150 events and escorted huge names like Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Julia Roberts.

At the 2007 Teen Choice Awards, for instance, Fox started freaking out backstage. Gaida was the one who calmed her down.

That same year, he was the one who suggested Jessica Alba change into a different dress at the Taurus World Stunt Awards.

At the 1999 VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards, Sharon Stone acted like a total diva and asked him to walk three steps ahead of her and never look back, Gaida said.

At the 2000 GQ Men of the Year Awards, Julia Roberts yelled at him backstage. 10 years later he escorted Roberts to an event and mentioned the incident to her. She apologized.

The job of an escort is when the star arrives at the carpet, Gaida introduces himself to the star’s staff — publicists, managers, etc. — and then to the star directly. From there, they quickly discuss a game plan. How long will they stay on the carpet for photos? How many interviews will they do? What media outlets need to be avoided completely because they’ve written negative things in the past?

You would think red carpets and award show teleprompters would be a cake walk for such well-versed celebrities. But “they are actors, so they are used to having lines prepared for them, and they get several takes,” Gaida said.

“These shows are mostly live, and they have to be themselves, which is sometimes hard,” he added.
