A Starlet in Vinewood is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V for Franklin Clinton in Vinewood Hills, Los Santos. The mission becomes available after collecting all 50 letter scraps.


Franklin Clinton, having collected all 50 letter scraps and discovering that Peter Dreyfuss had killed Leonora Johnson after putting the scraps together, goes to his house in Vinewood Hills. Franklin enters the property and attempts to confront Dreyfuss who initially mistakes him for at first a fan and second a script writer. Franklin eventually shows Dreyfuss a picture of Leonora on his phone and Dreyfuss, who had suggested Franklin give him a blowjob, calls for security saying that Franklin is attempting to rape him. When security does not appear and his attempts to bribe Franklin prove unsuccessful, he runs away saying that as he is famous the rules do not apply to him. He leaves and can be spared or killed by Franklin, although the player must kill Dreyfuss for gold medal completion.

Note: on approaching Dreyfuss' house, Franklin may be diverted by an unrelated random event involving rescuing a young woman being kidnapped by members of The Lost Brotherhood bike gang and taking her home (while fending off more attacks by the Lost). The event is triggered if Franklin approaches from the east and he must complete this side-mission (and survive) before returning to Dreyfuss' house again (the question mark disappears once the event begins).


When Franklin pulls up to the house a vehicle will be parked across its driveway. Jacking this vehicle and driving it around the corner will result in Dreyfuss making a run for it on foot, eliminating the need or a car chase and making for a relatively easy kill. The PS3 version has a glitch, however, that may make Franklin's vehicle vanish after the cutscene. If Dreyfuss gets into his vehicle, a car chase will ensue on the winding roads, possibly with the added distraction of a wanted level.

It is possible to kill Dreyfuss from a distance without triggering the cut scene (such as with a sniper rifle) but the mission isn't triggered and therefore the player does not get the credit or achievement.
