For the record, Michael Cohen is not Michael Stars.
And though he and his wife are unquestionably the driving force behind the successful “casual couture” t-shirt business bearing that recognizable moniker, he prefers to walk through his Downtown Manhattan Beach neighborhood with an air of anonymity — just another local out for a cup of coffee or ice cream around the block.
