That wasn't the case on Thursday night at Brentwood's Katsuya restaurant.
Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon, supermodel Cindy Crawford, Ryan Haddon (Christian Slater's ex) and Jim Belushi's wife were at the Japanese eatery having drinks at the bar while they waited for their table. And waited. And waited.
Finally, after it was clear that they wouldn't be seated anytime soon, the gorgeous group took their girls night out to the nearby trendy Brentwood Restaurant, where they were quickly ushered to the safety of an available table.
If real stars like Reese and Cindy can't get a table in this town, then "celebs" like Kristin Cavallari and K-Fed better get in line at Mickey Ds now!
