Mariah's beau, Aaron Mathias, goes Hollywood
If Aaron Mathias has stars in his deep brown eyes, it's no wonder. Barely out of acting school,
this 24-year-old former model has quickly become a focus of casting directors and agents. He's
auditioned for "Sex and the City", "Oz" and "All My Children". He's working on a feature film
with Academy Award-winning director Sarah Kernochan, whose documentary "Thoth" is up for an Oscar,
and he's got back-to-back meetings with New York talent scouts.|
Why are things breaking his way? It certainly doesn't hurt that he's been linked romantically with
Mariah Carey. "I feel like my life has become a Hollywood movie," he said during a recent interview.
"You know, one of those old films where the country boy leaves his hometown for the big city
because he's gotta get in films. He's starving and just about to pack it up when he gets the big
break, and everybody bursts out singing while Fred and Ginger dance across the stage."
Actually, in Mathias' case, that's not far from the truth. Four years ago, Mathias packed his bags,
stuffed a $100 bill in his back pocket and left his small hometown of Harris, Mich., for the Big
Apple. He went to acting school - he studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater
and the Caymichael Patten Studio in Manhattan - and tended bar to pay the rent on a shoebox-size
Long Island City apartment he shared with three roommates.
One night, while he worked at Tonic, a stranger approached and told Mathias he had what it took to
make it in film. "I'm thinking, Yeah, right," he said. Two months later, the stranger, who turned
out to be Curt Johnson of New World Inc., a manager who handles actors and is also a producer
(he's up for an Oscar with "Thoth"), started lining up auditions for Matthias.
As for the new woman in his life, he won't say where they met (Sundance, it is rumored), but he
mentions he had a great time at the Super Bowl in New Orleans (where MC sang the national anthem).
"I've always been a Patriots fan," he said. "Seeing them play was a childhood dream come true."
For Mathias, the dream is just beginning.
Many thanks to Mariah

The little interview was cute. I was rolling when Tamron quoted ODB. It was a fun moment not to be taken seriously, but I'm sure somebody will make it an issue. Lol.

I don't think MC should cut her hair. A bob wouldn't look cute on her. Just the thought makes me laugh. I would like MC to have a more relaxed style though. Like I need to see her with some jeans on, hair pulled back every now and again. I think it would come off very rediculous at this point in her career to change her entire image. More so than a... read more

I don't think there is a bandwagon, per se. People are making excuses for Mariah, it's not a farfetched notion. Some people on this board truly feel the only way to be a fan is to wear blinders and that's ridiculous. "Yes" people in a celebrity's life do more harm than good, and I think Mariah could benefit from hearing some genuine criticism from ... read more
