What a way to start the year! It seems that Belize is becoming the tropical haven for celebrities; a place where they can go escape it all, even the overbearing paparazzi.

Not one but two celebrities were spotted at the Tipsy Tuna in Placencia for the New Year’s countdown. James Franco, or better known as Harry Osborn, Green Goblins son in the movie Spiderman, mingled with the crowd at the tourist hotspot of the peninsula. He was nice enough to take picture with his fans. James is also known for his roles in the movies Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Spring Breakers, Oz the Great and Powerful, King Cobra and many more.
The second celeb ringing in the New Year at the Tipsy Tuna was Drew Carey (pictured above). He is an American actor, comedian, sports executive and game show host. He is best known for his own sitcom “The Drew Carey Show” or the famous game show host of “The Price is Right.”
A third celebrity spotting took place in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Alan Tudyk was caught on New Years Day as he made his way to dive one of Belize’s greatest assets, the great Blue Hole. John Romero of Amigos del Mar shared his photo-op with Alan on his diving trip. Alan is an American actor and voice actor.
