Read this: ‘Argo’ veteran Kathy Stafford recalls Iran crisis; the secret lives of four-stars

Another real-life character from “Argo” speaks: Kathleen Stafford, who was one of the “house guests” in Iran, shares stories that didn’t make it into the hit movie: How they escaped from the U.S. compound in Tehran; how they shuffled from one temporary hideout to another before finding a permanent berth at the Canadian ambassador’s home; how media leaks almost blew their cover. She’s the one who posed as a Hollywood makeup artist to escape Iran — and now, reports our colleague Patricia Sullivan, she’s an artist in real life. (Earlier: Tony Mendez, real-life inspiration for ‘Argo,’ 10/12/12)

In other news: Private jets, chefs, valets, string quartets. Basically, four-star generals live like rap stars or Fortune 500 CEOs, it turns out.
