Robert Zuckerman has been hobnobbing with celebs for more than 20 years as a still photographer for countless movie sets. Think The Doors, Escape from L.A., Prefontaine, and Confessions of a Shopaholic. See a retrospective of the part time South Floridian’s work at the Betsy Hotel 7 p.m. Sunday at a party hosted by the cast of his latest gig, Charlie’s Angels. Zuckerman regaled us with some tales from Hollywood:

George Clooney (Sunset Beat): “I worked on this 1990 pilot about undercover cops dressed up as bikers. It starred a cool, long haired hippie looking guy: George Clooney. He was just up and coming back then. But you kind of knew he was going places.’’

Faye Dunaway (The Temp): “She was really hypersensitive to the camera, and particularly to me. I’d try to hide or lay low on set but she just wouldn’t let me shoot her during rehearsal or any other time. She’d say, ‘Not now, dear.’’’

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers): “[Director] Michael Bay had worked with her during a Victoria’s Secret commercial. She’s a very beautiful girl, but she was doing this thing with her lips, this pouting model thing. It wasn’t looking good and was a concern . But much to her credit, she trained herself out of it.’’
