Happy to see Will Ferrell this morning! The mustached version, that is. I recently saw him during the premiere of The Campaign with Zach Galifianakis. He kinda disappeared from my view really quickly on that one but this time I got to see him a lot longer. He is just one of Extra‘s guests for today. Other guests are:
Star of Arrow, Katie Cassidy;
Actor and also a DWTS alum, J.R. Martinez;
and Singer Kylie Minogue.
Some more pics of mustached Will:
I just love the ‘stache. Can’t wait for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues!
And before I leave, here’s a short video of a TMZ guy asking Will Ferrell some questions… and then running out of questions.
Congratulations to Señor Javier Bardem for receiving the 2,484th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! We have an international cast for this induction ceremony: We have Mr. Bardem who is from Spain; director of Skyfall and guest speaker Sam Mendes is from England; then the two new Bond Girls in attendance are Berenice Marlohe from France and Naomie Harris from England. I was kinda hoping to see Javier’s wife and fellow Spaniard, Penelope Cruz as well but it was said that she was busy filming during this event. One more person I wanted to see: Daniel Craig! It’s a long shot but hey, they’re promoting Skyfall at the same time so who knows?
The first one to arrive was Skyfall Director, Sam Mendes. He went on to sign some autograph for the fans.
And then there was Naomie Harris.
Her face looked familiar even if I’ve never seen or heard about her before. Then I realized she was Tia Dalma from Pirates of the Caribbean, one of my favorite movies of all time! Wow, I’m an idiot haha. She sure looked different without the dreadlocks and the black lips!
Berenice Marlohe then came at the same time as Javier Bardem. I gotta say, this new Bond Girl stole the show! She was so GORGEOUS in person! I think I’m in love!
It’s funny because I saw some photographers taking more pictures of her than Javier Bardem. It’s like, “Ah I already got my shot of him, I’ll now focus on the things that interest me.”
And in this photo, all she did was hold on to that post and smile and voila! An instant high fashion shoot for the photographers!
The ceremony started and Sam Mendes took the stage. Part of the speech was about Javier dyeing his hair blonde for the new Bond movie, then entering the set and nobody recognizing him. I checked the trailer again today, he does look different! I think I dig the darker hair though. What do you think?
The guys then shared a big hug.
Javier Bardem Time!
Here’s his speech courtesy of Hollwood Walk of Fame:
The star was unveiled and then photo op galore again!
Haha look at that. Sam Mendes looks like he’s saying “oooh yeah I’m touching Naomie’s tummy!”
At this point I just badly wanted to have a picture with the super beautiful Berenice Marlohe. I was worried I wasn’t going to get one because she was on the other side but then she got closer and closer until she was on our side! Woohoo! Some stupid guy from the press with his iPad kept blocking my sight of her (for Christ’s sake, please don’t shoot with your iPad when you got people behind you!) but then when I called her she did respond and I finally got a picture with her!
She asked me if my camera was working because it didn’t flash. I said, “hmm let me see…” then I checked the LCD and yup it worked just fine and I showed it to her. We smiled together. Aww. We shared a moment. An even bigger story is that our faces were literally five inches away while we were exchanging words. In my fantasy we were already French kissing haha. I wish it happened in real life!
She got back to me after some time and we had another photo. This time, I had my flash on.
One photo means it’s a photo op, two photos means we’re close. Now we’re close. I’ll call her Berber from now on.
And finally, the man of the hour went to my side and there ya go, a new movie poster for 007:
For those of you who would like to visit Javier Bardem‘s star, it’s located at 6834 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028, right in front of the El Capitan Theatre.
I stopped by The Grove this morning so I can catch a glimpse of Hayden Panettiere, the scheduled guest for Extra today. The good news is that I saw her right away as soon I got there, the bad news is that I was too slow to get my camera from my bag! I wasn’t very worried during that time because I knew she will show up again after the interview (which was held indoors), but she didn’t! Or maybe she did, I just missed her. Uggghhh. Anyways, she looked really cute in person. And tiny (I think that makes her super cute?).
My stay there didn’t go down the drain, thankfully, as Taylor Kinney showed up! Okay honestly, I didn’t know anything about him until this morning but I’ve done my research and I know now that he is one of the main casts of the TV series Chicago Fire, appeared in The Vampire Diaries as Mason Lockwood, and he’s also popular for his role as Glenn Morrison in Trauma.
I think you will recognize him easier though if I say that he’s Lady Gaga‘s current boyfriend. Lady Gaga, you’re one lucky lucky girl.
Still part of the AFI Fest 2012 presented by Audi, Rise of the Guardians is a film by Dreamworks directed by Peter Ramsey starring the voices of Chris Pine, Jude Law, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Dakota Goyo. Some pretty big Hollywood names here but this fest has been turning out to be a festival of non-arrivals. Like I said in my previous post, none of the stars of Hitchcock attended their premiere while for On The Road, some stars of the film did come, not all of them. Well, for today I guess seeing at least one of these celebrities is good enough.
It’s a Sunday and the gala premiere is being held much earlier than the usual. The arrivals start around 3 pm while the movie starts at 4 pm. Let’s watch the trailer for Rise of The Guardians:
Heading on to the arrivals. Here’s director Peter Ramsey. This is just his second work as a director but he has had a long list of work as a storyboard artist. Fight Club, Minority Report, and Independence Day are just some of the films he has worked on.
And now here’s Alec Baldwin being accompanied by his wife, Hilaria Thomas. He goes right away to the crowd to sign autographs…
He then poses for the photographers…
Unfortunately for us, he is the only one who arrives but like I said, seeing just one star is good enough for this film fest. So yup, this is good enough. Well not really. But it’s fine, it’s fine. Let’s just see Hugh Jackman and Co. next time. Now let’s go home and watch 30 Rock.
Welcome to the AFI Fest 2012! 6 gala premieres in 8 days. Hitchcock premiered last Thursday (Nov. 1), then Life of Pi on Friday, and then On The Road yesterday. I went to the Hitchcock premiere and I got disappointed for not seeing any of their big stars. Anthony Hopkins and the other stars were apparently filming that day while Jessica Biel was on honeymoon. Good for them but what a waste of my time! I wish I was the one she’s on honeymoon with instead haha. I was wondering if any of the stars would show up for this one. I already got the idea that this festival is not taken as seriously by the actors compared to other gala premieres. It’s still nice to be optimistic though. Looking forward to seeing Kristen Stewart! As we all know, The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 is premiering in a couple of days and there’s no hotter names in Hollywood than these Twilight peeps right now. People from all over the world are now on their way to LA to witness the ensemble hit the red carpet in this one momentous occasion for the very last time. Due to previous commitments, I will not be around for that one so to all of you campers, have fun and enjoy the premiere!
Okay back to On The Road. This film is directed by Walter Salles. Along with Stewart, it also stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Amy Adams with Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. Here’s the trailer:
I also really wanted to see Viggo Mortensen as I am a big fan of The Lord of The Rings. He was a no show though, as well as Sam Riley and Kirsten Dunst. But I’ll tell you who’s there, the star of the film, Garrett Hedlund!
Let’s see who else. Oh, Amy Adams!
And last one. Whew. I’m just so glad she came! I might miss the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere but at least I won’t be missing all of it for here right in front of my very eyes (or camera lens) is Kristen Stewart!!!
That car above that partially blocks the shot, by the way, is an Audi. The official sponsor of the AFI Fest 2012. It will soon be mine. Mwahaha.
For those of you who want to see celebrity arrivals during the AFI Fest, here’s the schedule for the remaining films:
Nov. 4- Rise of The Guardians (Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Jude Law, et al)
Nov. 5- Rust & Bone (directed by Jacques Audiard starring Marion Cotillard, et al)
Nov. 8- Lincoln (directed by Steven Spielberg starring- Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, et al)
All of these are to be held in Grauman’s Theater in Hollywood. For more details, please check out http://afifest.afi.com/film-results/galas
John Cusack got his Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on the 24th of April, 2012. He is star number 2,469. This is a super late post so I’ll just try to recall all the things that happened that day through these pictures haha.
Lots of people attended as usual. Always the case with Hollywood A-Listers. John was promoting a new movie called The Raven (where he plays Edgar Allan Poe) during that time and so one of the guests in this star ceremony was a raven. Cool, isn’t it? It wasn’t billed as a guest speaker though, maybe it was a bit shy. The guest speakers that were announced were his sister, Joan Cusack and his close friend Jack Black. I would’ve attended here even if there are no other famous stars as long as I see John, but what a big bonus it was to see Po from Kung Fu Panda and Jessie from Toy Story!
I love Jack Black’s look on this one. He actually had that facial expression the whole time. Badass Jack haha.
Joan Cusack was really nice, just looked a bit older in person. I’m sorry Joan! It’s just a bit! Like a few months. Seriously! She’s a really really good actress though!
It’s sometimes nice to have a guest list that doesn’t reveal everything for there’s the element of surprise in it. For this instance, I was lucky to see Billy Bob Thornton! He just appeared out of nowhere!
Maybe his name was actually written on the guest speakers list and I just didn’t see it, but that doesn’t matter. The surprise made a bigger impact.
Dan Aykroyd also appeared out of nowhere! Maybe there were ghosts present and he had to do some ghost busting?
John finally stepped on the stage and gave his speech. I didn’t really get to listen that much. I kept saying to myself, “gosh, this man is so good looking. Why don’t I look like him?”
He was then given the certificate by the City of Los Angeles declaring this day As John Cusack Day in Hollywood.
Congratulations to John Cusack on having his name immortalized on the streets of Hollywood! For those of you who would like to see his star, it’s located right in front of Larry Edmund’s Bookshop on 644 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90028.
I’m still hyped from seeing Denzel Washington last night and I’m thrilled to be in another premiere just 24 hours after! Here we are today at The Grauman’s Chinese Theater for the Red Carpet Premiere of Cloud Atlas.
There’s another premiere simultaneously held at the Arclight Cinemas, it’s called Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. It’s a great movie as well (I love the video game!) featuring Adelaide Clemens, Carrie Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell. I chose to go to the Cloud Atlas premiere for obvious reasons: the star power of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant!
Let’s go spot some movie peeps!
Here’s writer/producer/director of the film, Lana Wachowski!
She and her brother, Andy, are best known for directing The Matrix. They’re more popularly known as the Wachowski Brothers/Wachowski Starship/The Wachowskis. Other films they’re involved at are Bound, Speed Racer, V for Vendetta, and Ninja Assassin.
You can tell she’s in a very good mood!
Now here’s the other half of The Wachowskis, Andy Wachowski!
English actor Jim Broadbent
I’m sure you know the next one. Academy Award Winning Actress, Susan Sarandon!
It’s funny because while I was taking the picture above, there was this woman behind me who was talking in another language and even if I wasn’t able to understand what she was saying, it was very clear that she was so ecstatic and she mentioned Susan Sarandon’s full name about a hundred times! It’s always nice to know that the tourists are enjoying their time here in Hollywood!
Now here’s Jim Sturgess and his mustache
Keanu Reeves also made an appearance which is a huge surprise because I love the guy and I didn’t expect him to be there! The Wachowskis directed The Matrix series so I guess he’s there to support them. He hasn’t made that much films as of late but he’s working on two new films, Man of Tai Chi an 47 Ronin. I didn’t get to take a picture of him *sigh*, he was too quick to disappear. He still got those The Matrix moves.
Now let’s see the star of the film, the man who needs no introduction, Mr. Tom Hanks!!!
He took out his iPhone and decided to take a video of the crowd. Nice. We’re gonna be on Tom Hank’s iPhone haha!
The only disappointment of the night was that there’s no Hugh Grant appearance but to me it’s really not a big deal because after seeing a Tom Hanks and a Susan Sarandon up close, I guarantee that everybody will go home happy! Well, except for the ones who came there just for Hugh Grant but oh well, there’s always a next time for you guys.
Last but not the least is another Academy Award Winning Actress, Halle Berry!
And now it’s time for you to see what it feels like to be Halle Berry on the red carpet! Make sure you give your best smile to the cameras, okay?!
Stand up straight, give your best red carpet pose!
Alright 1…2…3… smile!!!
Yayyy!!! You sure got it in you! You’re gonna be the next Halle. Halle Tosis.
That’s all folks! See you again on the next premiere!
This is a big day for Family Guy fans. Its mastermind, Seth MacFarlane is premiering his first ever motion picture. He’s had a tremendous success on TV despite the criticism of the content and humor of his shows (which I love to death) and now it’s time for him to test his comedic genius on the big screen.
Here’s the trailer for Ted:
I’m posting this very late and I guess most of you have already watched the movie. I still haven’t, sadly! I’m still waiting for the DVD release which is coming out on December 11, 2012. Pretty long wait but it’s all worth it!
Moving on to the arrivals!
I was in the mood to take videos for this day so here he is signing some autographs…
And here I am fanboying.
And here’s Meg slash lead actress of this movie, Mila Kunis!
Laura Vandervoort. She played Kara on Smallville and had also guested in some episodes of Family Guy.
The star of the show, one of my favorites and one of the reasons why I went to the gym back in college. Also one of the reasons why I love Calvin Klein, Mark Wahlberg!
And finally, the head of the family (guy)… Seth MacFarlane!
Wait, let him cross the street first…
Seth Macfarlane, everyone!!!
I know this movie is going to be funny. There’s just something about Seth’s way of attacking his comedy that really makes him my favorite. I can’t wait to see it!
And before I go, here’s a little something that my buddies found on the internet the next day, a nice Mark Wahlberg photo with them on it! Yipee!
There’s also one with me but it’s cuter without so let’s just stay with that. Haha.
That’s all for now folks. See you again on the next red carpet premiere!
One of the most unforgettable celebrity events I’ve been to. I went to Hollywood on June 26, 2012 knowing that there was going to be a red carpet premiere for this movie. I’ve been to several premieres before so I knew pretty much what to expect. I knew I was going to see Katy Perry this day and perhaps some celebrity guests. When I got there, I was so surprised that there was a huge stage right by Hollywood & Highland. Oh yes! There’s going to be a CONCERT! But is it going to be free? Oh yes it is!!! Now I’m sure this event was promoted several days before, I was just too naive to know but then I guess being unaware has its advantages: you get more surprises!
I met with my friends and we decided to go straight to where the stage was so we can find the best spot. The moment we got there, we got another big surprise: Katy Perry was already there on the stage rehearsing!
We were really near the stage so we saw her up close. They were rehearsing for the whole set they’ll be doing that night so that was a long exposure for her. I even got to roam around and take videos and photos from different angles.
That was a lot of fun! Usually, you get to see celebrities only for a really short time and they’re always on the go but this time, I was the one on the go and Katy stayed where she was the whole time. I guess I can say I developed a love for watching rehearsals. Maybe concert promoters should offer fans free entrance to rehearsals every now and then. That is an event in itself! I remember watching an NBA All Star practice and we paid somewhere around $50/ticket for that, all they did was run and practice lay ups. Not a single soul complained.
At this point I can totally go home. I’ve actually already seen who I wanted to see for this day! But then that would be silly. Of course I’ll wait for the real thing!
The setup here was a bit different from the other premieres. The arrivals were still going to be held at Grauman’s Theater but the concert was in front of the H&H Center. That means fans have a choice whether to be on the arrivals area and see some more celebrities like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen, etc. or to be on the stage area where they can watch the free concert.
I’ve seen lots of celebrity entrances before, I chose the free concert. That doesn’t happen everyday! And besides, the spot we had wasn’t that bad since the cars passed right by us.
Here are some of the dancers upon arrival.
It was weird because I was just seeing them on stage rehearsing a while ago, and now they look like they just got here!
Oh by the way, this wasn’t really a red carpet premiere but a pink carpet premiere. I didn’t have a picture of the carpet because like I said I was on the concert area but just imagine you’re seeing a pink carpet. There. You’re still well informed haha.
Fast forward to the concert…
And she came out of a popcorn box!
Sure is the best way to pop out for a pop star! By popping out of a popcorn box! Okay I’ll stop talking now. Enjoy the concert!!! Concert photos, that is.
It was amazing! She sang her best hits including “I Kissed A Girl”, “Wide Awake”, “California Girls”, “Fireworks”, and of course, “Part of Me” which was also the title of the movie she’s promoting.
And now that I’ve pumped you up with the pictures, I now have a surprise for you: Here’s the full video!!! Go get some popcorn and set your loudspeakers on!
Please don’t forget to watch Katy Perry: Part of Me. Now available on DVD.
Congratulations to Mark Harmon for getting the 2,482nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
For this event, I was only expecting to see Mark Harmon and perhaps one or two guest speakers but lo and behold! All the NCIS cast and crew were there! They happen to be in the middle of production at the Dillon’s Irish Pub, a restaurant where Mark’s star will be placed in front of, so it was an awesome encounter. The down side is, I don’t watch the show. I would’ve been a very happy fanboy. But then at least I knew a little about Pauley Perrette, I’ve seen her from the Expedia commercial before. And Mark Harmon, I saw him on The Deliberate Stranger: The Ted Bundy Story. He’s so handsome haha. Now I’ve met them all, I’ll start watching NCIS, Abby Sciuto has converted me to NCISianism!
Now the photos!
I love this ID… I think the letters are a bit small here but it says at the bottom “valid for star ceremony and lunch reception.” The last part is the most important thing, isn’t it?
Here’s the chair of Cote De Pablo waiting for her…
First one I saw: Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, David McCallum
Then it’s Ziva David, Cote De Pablo. This i my first time to hear about her and see her. She’s lovely. I can’t wait to watch her on my first NCIS episode tonight!
Abby Sciuto, Pauley Perrette. Great personality and great with people. Really knows how to entertain the crowd. Yep, I’m a fan of hers now!
She’s got pretty awesome tattoos as well!
Haha stick figures with halos on both sides and a flower (?) in the middle. Not everybody can pull that off!
The man of the hour, Special Agent Jethro Gibbs, Mark Harmon arrives and is greeted by his team mates. They’re known as the BOMBERS, the football team that Mark played for in his early days. Can you guess what position he played?
He is greeted by his family, friends, work buddies and his loving fans. Here he is giving a kiss to his NCIS co-star, Pauley Perrette.
Start of the ceremony. Guest Speaker Les Moonves takes the stage.
A very dear friend of Mark, he’s not really a big household name. But he’s the President and CEO of CBS Corporation. Now who’s your daddehhh?!
Here’s Mark giving a speech…
…or belting out a Pavarotti. Nah.
Some of the people in attendance listening to every word he says:
Jimmy Palmer, Brian Dietzen
Anthony Dizzono, Michael Weatherly
And again, the BOMBERS!
Mark mentions the special people in his life. Here’s Ducky being given a pat on the back by his cast mates as Mark talks about him.
Here’s the special photographer doing her thing
That’s going straight to Twitter! And now, smile everyone!!!
I’ll have a look on her phone and see if my face is in there.
Here now is the complete speech:
Some extra shots after the ceremony:
Here’s Mark’s wife, Pam Dawber (left) interacting with the fans. You probably remember her as Mindy from the TV Series Mork & Mindy. I wasn’t born yet when it was airing. I’m only 16 right now, so much more to see and learn.
And a funny video while Mark is doing his photo op. During the photo op, photographers usually ask the celebrities to look a certain direction so they can get their shots. “Look to your left/right” are the the most common phrases you’ll hear. This time, Mark Harmon’s NCIS co-stars Pauley Perrette and company help Mr. Harmon where to look: to his right, where a bunch of people inside the Irish Pub are taking photos of him too! These turn out to be the NCIS crew who are currently in the middle of a production inside the pub and took time off to see this historical moment of Mr. Harmon’s career.
It was a great day. A very special day for all Mark Harmon & NCIS fans out there. Once again, congratulations to Mark Harmon!
Pitch Perfect held its premiere on the 24th of September 2012 at Pacific’s Cinerama Dome in Sunset Blvd, LA. I had to choose between attending this premiere and Frankenweenie, which was held simultaneously just a few blocks away at the Grauman’s Thater. My childhood crush Winona Ryder is on the other side, so as Tim Burton but still, I had to chose this. Why?! FAT AMY was here!
Here are some photos from the event:
Anna Camp (she has appeared in True Blood, The Good Wife, and the Academy Award winning film The Help)
Brittany Snow (Harry’s Law, Hairspray, Prom Night)
Anna Kendrick (Twilight, 50/50, Scott Pilgrim vs The World)
Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, 30 Rock, The 40 Year Old Virgin) She also co-poduced this film.
Skylar Astin (The Online Gamer, Hamlet 2)
Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf, Lincoln Heights)
Rebecca Black (Singer, most well known for her song, “Last Friday Night“)
Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, The Bachelorette) a.k.a. Fat Amy!
Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, The Firm)
Shelley Regner. This is her first feature film.
The Director of this film, Jason Moore.
Ben Platt. Also a newcomer.
Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow Parts 1 & 2)
A lot of fresh faces here folks. It’s nice to see these young men and women gracing the red carpet. I hope they all make it big here in Hollywood.
Problem for me when it comes to new faces though, is that it’s hard to caption haha! Now if anyone can help me name these beautiful ladies, I’d love you forever…
…and this one’s Ms. Beautiful Smile…
…here’s Madame Cool…
… there’s also a guy whose name I don’t know… I’ll call him Surfer Dude for now…
And now here are my favorite shots of the night.
And to wrap it all up, here again is Anna Camp, my most favorite of all!
That’s all folks! Don’t forget to watch Pitch Perfect, in theaters October 5. See you again on the next red carpet event!
I wanted to call this the “Trouble With The Curve Red Carpet Premiere”, but then it wasn’t a red carpet that was laying there. Instead, it’s green to match the color of a baseball field. This film revolves around baseball after all. Cool, isn’t it?
Today we’re at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood. It’s my first time here so I gotta look around first to see which area is the best spot for shooting. There are less people here compared to the premieres held at Grauman’s Theater, mainly because Grauman’s Theater is right in the heart of Hollywood where tourists are all over. This place is a little farther west (ahh so that’s why it’s called “Westwood”?!) This theater is near UCLA as well so if you’re a Bruin this place is no stranger to you. I see a pretty good spot in the middle. Okay ready to go.
First to arrive… John Goodman.
He’s been in so many movies and TV shows but the one that’s really printed on my mind was his role as Fred Flinstone on The Flintstones. I loved that when I was a kid. It’s nice to see Fred here! Yabba dabba doo!!!
Right after Fred… I mean John Goodman is the living legend and the star of the movie, Mr. Clint Eastwood.
Now I can tell my dad and all my uncles and grandpas that I saw Dirty Harry in person. I got street creds with the elderly mwahaha.
Clint waves and smiles to the people waiting but doesn’t walk towards the crowd to sign autographs and take pictures with them which, to me, is totally fine. The man’s been on the scene forever, he’s in his 80’s and still working, let him decide whatever he wants to do. He’s the law. He IS Clint Eastwood. To everyone who’s waiting for an autograph, I know you’re disappointed but don’t fret. Seeing him in person is already a big honor.
I myself wanted a picture with Clint, even if it’s like this…
Or maybe not haha. That’s from the movie How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, by the way (I LOVE Simon Pegg!)
He’s on an Escalade…
And he’s bringing Sexyback…
Sir Justin Timberlake!!!
He’s a really nice guy! He signs for everyone in the crowd. Doesn’t take pictures though, perhaps to speed things up. I gotta say, this man’s got a lot of sex appeal!
And here’s a little video…
Now we have an Olympic gold medalist with us, swimmer Tyler Clary.
Looking stunning in her red dress is Amy Adams.
Doesn’t look very comfortable though. You want me to cut it for you, Amy?!
We saw Fred Flintstone a while ago, now we see Shaggy from Scooby Doo! Matthew Lillard!
It’s a YABBA DABBA SCOOBY DOOBY DOO day!!!
Uhh, Matthew, are you signing with your hand and with your mouth at the same time?!
Abadee abadee abadee a that’s all folks! See you again on the next red carpet premiere!
One of the most exciting days of my life, seeing Scarlett Johansson upclose and personal as she receives the 2,470th Star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood Blvd.
I arrived there around 8:00 am and there were already quite a few people waiting. It was drizzling, looked like it wasn’t gonna be the best day for doing a star ceremony. I saw the men working on the star, which was located right in front of Madame Tussauds.
Thankfully, the drizzle stopped. After the workers finished with the star, they started putting up the stage and the railings for the event. These guys seem to have been doing it for the longest time coz they’re very good at it, finishing in just a few minutes. We were then all allowed to finally pick our spots. It was still pretty early so we spent the time chit chatting with one another, doing whatever things that could put us away from boredom. Scarlett’s a very special lady, and none of us really minded waiting for her even if it took several hours. Even Captain America was willing to stand in there for a long time.
He sacrificed the safety of America just to see Scarlett. He also ate a little too many cheeseburgers while waiting.
The paparazzi arrived and the tension built. We’re SO ready to finally see our favorite Hollywood girl!
Uhm guys, don’t you think you’re setting up the camera a little too low? Upskirt shots are supposed to be done discretely, you know.
And after much anticipation, Scarlett arrived, she was very stunning, Like a goddess walking amongst men!
The ceremony started at 11:30. The day looked so beautiful, so much different from how it looked just a while ago. It’s the Scarlett Effect. Leron Gubler of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce stepped up on stage to introduce Scarlett.
While he’s doing this, I fainted coz her beauty was way too much for me to handle. The ceremony was halted for a bit as there was a need to call for paramedics. Oops, sorry for the scene. Scarlett approached the mike and said there was no need for one, then she ran towards me, knelt and gave me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
And then I woke up. Gosh.
Her guest speaker was Jeremy Renner, who co-starred with her in The Avengers, together with Robert Downey, Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Mark Ruffalo. If you still haven’t watched it by now, I feel sorry for you!
Here’s the full speech recorded by a buddy of mine. He made us laugh!
It was really cute when they locked eyes…
They had a big warm hug after his speech.
Then Scarlett got off the stage to hug me too. Not.
A little kiss…
And then it was the woman of the hour’s time to give her speech…
Yep, it’s on an index card. Don’t throw that away Scarlett, we’re gonna auction that haha!
And here’s the speech in full:
She got a bit emotional. I wish I could hug her during that time. I wish I could hug her all the time. Don’t we all?!
Two things that really caught my eye as she was giving her speech:
1. Her wrist tattoo. I thought it was a crucifix from afar but it wasn’t… what is it?!
2. Her lovely red shoes that matches her beautiful red lips that matches the elegant red carpet.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
After the speech, she was given this certificate from the city of Los Angeles, declaring this day as Scarlett Johansson Day in Hollywood!
The new walk of fame star is finally revealed!!! Woohoo! Well, I saw it this morning already, but this time, it’s official! Wohoo!
I saw another tattoo in her forearm, it’s a colorful one, looked to me like a sunrise scene…
It was a really great day! Congratulations to Scarlett and hoping to see more of you on the big screen!!!
This one’s being held at the Regal Cinemas in L.A. Live, this venue is smaller than Grauman’s theater and is less known to the public. That means there are less people going to the events held here and therefore better chances for a fan to get pictures and autographs with his/her favorite celebrity. And’ that’s why I love this place! They hold gala premieres here every now and then, and I invite you all to come experience it with us sometime.
Before we get started, let’s clean the red carpet first. There might still be some dog fur in there. My pet husky has been shedding lately…
I think it’s clean now. Alright I’m kinda in a hurry, let’s go straight to the arrivals. Celebs, come on over!
First up, Anna Kendrick.
I love this girl. She looks really sweet and charming. I’ve been seeing her a lot of times lately, it gives the illusion that we’re close friends now even if she doesn’t even know me haha.
She signs and interacts with everyone in the crowd. Thank you, Anna!
Arriving right after Anna is the star of the show, Jake Gyllenhaal!
And he goes straight to the fans. Here he is as if saying with his eyes, “okayyyy…”
Jake’s really nice, signing and taking pictures with everyone. He’s also noticeably grizzly now, I thought I’d see him with a shaved head like in the movie trailer. Expecting bald and seeing super hairy. It’s a bit surprising haha.
Cody Horn is next. I’ve only seen her on film once before, and that was on Magic Mike which also happens to have premiered here in this exact place!
She’s so gorgeous in person!
Michael Peña arrives shortly after Cody. Guess what? He will be having a starring role as Cesar E. Chavez in the upcoming movie, Chavez.
There’s a limo coming!
But you know what’s more amazing? It’s the blue streaks of light that I’m getting from my camera. I don’t know how that’s happening there are no blue lights there. Can somebody explain that to me? Any photographers out there? Physicists? Chemists? Astronauts?
It’s Joe Maganiello! He’s appeared in a lot of movies and TV series but he’s most famous for his works on True Blood. He also appeared on Magic Mike as Big Dick Richie. I got stuck with that name so I think I’ll always call him Big Dick Richie haha.
He’s so tall and buff it would be hard not to nice him even if he’s not an actor!
Remember Steven Hyde from That 70’s show? He’s here! Danny Masterson! He’s also appearing now on the new TV series, Men At Work.
I miss that show. That 70’s Show…
That’s Frank Grillo. He appeared on movies such as Warrior, The Grey, and Minority Report. He’s the last one to arrive for the night.
There ya go folks. Please watch End of Watch, on theaters September 21, 2012.
I’m going home now. Bye guys!
Wait! Hold on! Someone’s coming!
I see a Rolls Royce…
And it has a convoy… a Bentley! This must be someone big!
But who could that be? The main actors are already inside…
It’s 50 Cent!!! AAAHHH!!! Blast the speakers up!
Such a fun night. I’ll see you again on the next red carpet event, folks!
