Boy, it’s been a while since I posted anything here! It’s nice to be back and now it’s time for some late posts galore starting off with dun dunununnn… G.I. Joe Retaliation! I just gotta say first that I really loved G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra because of Rachel Nichols. I didn’t know anything about her before that film and after I saw it I just had a massive crush on her since then. Gorgeous to the 10th degree. She’s got nothing to do with this movie nor this red carpet premiere, I just thought I’d give her a special mention. I love you, Rachel Nichols!
Okay, back to Retaliation. Bruce Willis. He’s one of my super idols in the world, other than that, he’s my dream dad. I wish he was my dad because he just has this Bruce Willis look. I think I just described him using his own name. I dunno, I just can’t explain this but he’s got this certain coolness and machismo, he’s badass yet lovable, with a leader and protector don’t-mess-with-my-children-or-you’re-dead kind of appeal. Well, I’m not Rumer to say if the last one is true but I just think that’s how it would feel like based on this Bruce Willis look.
And now… I finally get to meet him! YIPPIE-KI-YAY!!!
Daddy! It’s me! Your son! Over here!!!
He recognized me, parted the crowd and said, “son?” He the then hugged me and with tears in his eyes, he said, “we will never be parted again!”
…is how it happened in my fantasy. In real life he just went on signing autographs, getting farther and farther away as the seconds go by. Here he is with his wife, Emma Heming.
You rock, Bruce! And speaking of rocking, The Rock is here too (that’s the best segue I can think of, that’s why I’m not a journalist!). Notice the brahma bull belt that guy is wearing above? Pretty cool, huh?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s owning the entertainment world in the first half of 2013! He’s got this, Pain and Gain, Fast & Furious 6, plus Wrestlemania 29 all just several weeks apart from each other. He’s even got a hernia repair! That too is special! I just adore this man. A natural athlete and arguably the most charismatic wrestler in WWE history. This man can talk the talk and walk the walk! He made the Attitude Era the most memorable of all, along with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Degeneration X, The Undertaker, Mankind, and many others. Ahh. Those were the days! I’ve been an avid fan of the WWE since I was a child and I believe him when he says he is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. I also smell what The Rock is cookin’. It smells like bacon.
He’s even electrifying when he’s signing autographs! His energy was so high it sent chills down my spine. The only other man I saw on a red carpet premiere with this much energy… Terry Crews from the Expendables 2 premiere.
Two of my idols in one event. What a day! One of the best ones I’ve attended! I’m sorry to Channing Tatum fans, he wasn’t able to make it in this event. If you want to see Channing, please check out Magic Mike Red Carpet Premiere.
Here are some more photos, starting off with no other than Bruce Willis‘ daughter, Rumer Willis.
Adrianne Palicki waving to the crowd…
Here’s a jam packed Hollywood sidewalk. Yep, it gets crazy!
Byung-hun Lee, who plays Storm Shadow in the film.
…and I would like to thank that camera man for providing a fill flash on his face. Without you, this shot wouldn’t be possible.

Alright, alright, alright, alright. Are you ready for this, ladies?! Let’s have some strippers in the house!!! Well, no stripping here right now, really. But these men will be playing strippers in this upcoming movie, “Magic Mike.” The film is part of the LA Film Festival and the red carpet premiere is held at the Regal Cinemas in L.A. Live.
You may watch the trailer here.
More and more fans gather to meet their favorite strippers. I mean actors haha. But first, a trivia (though I guess you already knew this even before I did). Did you know that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper and that this film is loosely based on his personal life? Yeah! That’s right! They kinda say it a lot when doing promos for this movie so yup you already know it. Alright moving on… here are some ladies waiting to get a glance of the cute boys…
As the place gets packed, the media people starts to arrive and prepare their equipment. That’s pretty much the signal that the arrivals are going to start very soon.
First to arrive is Adam Rodriguez. He’s well known for his role as Eric Delko on CSI: Miami. He also played Bobby Talercio on Ugly Betty.
My friend’s holding a CSI: Miami picture and he sees her right away so our group’s the first one he goes to.
And here’s Adam talking and having fun with us…
More celebrities start to arrive. Some sign autographs and take pictures with the fans for a long time, some just do it for a couple of minutes. It really depends on the celebrity and the handlers.
Betsy Brandt signs for the fans. She’s well known for her role on Breaking Bad as Marie Schrader.
Next up: Matt Bomer. He plays the main role on the show Blue Collar as Neal Caffrey.
And the crowd gets crazy!!!
We’re hearing VERY loud screams from the left side. Who might that be?! It’s the one and only Matthew McConaughey!
Matthew!!! You’re my idol! I want a picture with you!
…and I don’t get a picture with him. The fanboy in me is not very happy! That’s okay though. I’m happy just to see you Matthew!
Here comes the youngest of them all (fresh meat, I think, is the term?), Alex Pettyfer. He’s most well known for his films, I Am Number 4 and Beastly.
Let’s have some more of Matthew! I’m still not satisfied…
Alright now. The main man is here. Mr. Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum!
*Deafening screams blasting the eardrums!!!*
And that’s it. So much fun at this premiere! Joe Mangianello, who plays Big Dick Richie on this film is too far from us so I’m not able to take pictures of him, as well as Olivia Munn. I like Olivia Munn.
Here are some photos of me and the gang:
That’s all for now folks. See you again on the Red Carpet!!!
