STORY & PHOTOS

In “No Strings Attached”, Ashton Kutcher’s character Adam works on a very “Glee”/”High School Musical”-ish TV show that films at Paramount in Hollywood. Likewise, the film was shot at Paramount’s studio. You see several views of the lot throughout the film:

And you’d see sights like that while on the Paramount studio tour.

At one point during the film, Adam and his buddies (Jake Johnson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) are walking through a park:

This park is right on the Paramount lot, near the famous Bronson Gate, and if you take the VIP Tour at Paramount it’s probably where you’ll eat lunch! Here’s how the park looks on an average day:

It has also appeared on Paramount-lensed TV shows, like “Community” and “Rizzoli & Isles”.

“Rizzoli & Isles” makes good use of the entire Paramount backlot – they’ve shot everywhere! In episode 413, Jane (Angie Harmon) has a picnic lunch date with Casey (Chris Vance) in the same park used in “Community” and “No Strings Attached”:

You can see the same benches and pavers in the “No Strings Attached” and “Rizzoli & Isles” scenes.
