Lou Diamond Phillips just wants to make friends.
Page Six hears the “La Bamba” star just moved to Scarsdale, NY, and his real estate agent is appealing to new neighbors to welcome him to the community.
In a post on a Facebook page for the town, a Keller Williams agent says that if the townsfolk spot the actor, his wife Yvonne or their daughter at the “grocery store and Starbucks” they should “say ‘hello.’”
“They are a very kind and friendly family,” the post adds. “Yvonne said that she would love to make new local friends.”
The agent was clearly enamored with the famous family.
“We shared a lot of humor and laughs during our walk through today,” she posted, “They are in love with the town and Westchester [county].”

Phillips rose to fame with 1987’s Ritchie Valens biopic “La Bamba” and 1988 Western hit “Young Guns.” He also got a Tony nomination in a Broadway revival of “The King and I,” and he loves to tweet about cats. Plus, he’s a world-class poker player who finished 186th in a field of 6,500 in the 2009 World Series of Poker.
He was born in the Philippines, raised in Texas and previously lived in Los Angeles. Yvonne is his third wife.
Scarsdale is just an hour from New York City and has been described by the New York Times as, “A pricey suburb with an Old World air.”

Judy Garland grew up there, as did “Stranger Things” star Noah Schnapp, football legend Frank Gifford, and both Aaron Sorkin and Andrew Ross Sorkin (even though they’re not related). It’s also been home to wives of two Beatles: Yoko Ono and Linda McCartney. Not to even mention the “Scarsdale Diet.”
Phillips recently returned to his alma mater, the University of Texas at Arlington, to teach an acting class.
