Movie 43 Red Carpet Premiere
Movie 43. So many stars in one movie and I’m really curious how it would turn out! Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, and so on and so forth. The list of stars never ends! Is it going to be one of the most successful comedy movie of all time? Or is it going to blow? Starpower does not always necessarily mean success, I mean, look at the Lakers now. All those talents, wrongfully utilized. How can you have Kobe and Pau and Dwight and Steve Nash and MWP in one team and still suck?! It’s unimaginable. Anyways, I’m getting off topic now. Here’s the trailer for Movie 43…
I was highly skeptical about all those stars showing up for the red carpet premiere so I tried not to expect too much to avoid disappointment. The arrivals were scheduled to start around 6:30 pm and I got there at 6:28, which was really late since you have to be at least 2 hours early if you want to get a pretty decent spot for your stargazing. I got to stand far far away from the carpet, so please enjoy my ugly pictures. Ha.
Roastmaster Jeff Ross was the first one I saw, he was doing interviews for a segment on his new show on Comedy Central, The Burn With Jeff Ross. He’s in almost every picture that I’m posting here so if we change the title of this blog to The Burn With Jeff Ross, it can actually still work!
Here he is with Rusty Cundieff
Jackass Director, Jeff Tremaine
TV Host Chelsea Handler and actor Griffin Dunne
Producer of There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber, and Hall Pass, Peter Farrelly with wife Melinda Kocsis
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air‘s Alfonso Ribeiro
Rules of Engagement‘s Patrick Warburton. He’s also the voice of Joe Swanson on Family Guy, my favorite show in the world
Basketball Player, Larry Sanders (Milwaukee Bucks)
Hip hop Artist and Actor, Common
J.B. Smoove and Seinfeld writer Larry David
KISS’ Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed
Wayne Brady with daughter Maile Masako
Andy Dick and his middle finger
Jackass‘ Preston Lacy and Dave England
Skating Legend Tony Hawk
So many more celebrities attended this star studded event, I just stopped shooting as this was star overdose for me already. Jeff Ross overdose too. I didn’t want to sleep and dream about Jeff Ross. The A-Listers Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and company were noticeably absent so fans who were wanting to see them were probably disappointed but then the number of B-, C-, and D-Listers who attended may have compensated that for some. For me, it was a really fun night. I think seeing Joe Swanson in person was the highlight as I’m a huge Family Guy fan.
Please don’t forget to watch Movie 43! Now Showing!
Please don’t forget to watch The Burn with Jeff Ross as well! —>Says Jeff Ross.
Helen Mirren: The Queen Gets Immortalized
I finally met Her Royal Highness Queen Helen Mirren last Thursday! I know I know she’s not the real queen but there certainly was a royal feel to her presence. Like you hear trumpets playing in your ears as she walks. And British soldiers marching. And the gates of the castle opening. I think I’m hallucinating, I should get help. Having played the role of three different queens in her career, it’s not unusual for people to associate her name to the role of Her Majesty.
It was a glorious day in Hollywood as we witnessed her name immortalized on the Walk of Fame. She has won 4 BAFTAs, 3 Golden Globes, an Academy Award, 4 Emmy Awards, and 2 Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards (thank you Wikipedia!). With those achievements, one can say that this ceremony should have been done ages ago!
As usual, the event was packed.
Here are the list of wonderful peeps who never fail to deliver us the freshest news all the time. *clap clap*
Nope. I’m not one of those guys who deliver the freshest news. My blog is three days late. I doubt if anyone will ever get to read this. Ha.
The ceremony started with Leron Gubler introducing Dame Helen Mirren.
Guest speakers were film director/producer John Turtletaub (National Treasure: Book of Secrets)…
…who at one point mistakenly referred to her as Helen Hunt…
…and author/playwright/producer/screenwriter/director David Mamet.
She was given a certificate from the city of LA and the ceremonial loaf of bread.
I’m sure you’ve noticed by now how cool her purse was.
Here’s her speech courtesy of telegraphtv:
The Majestic Pose, ladies and gentlemen.
And the Royal Kiss with husband Taylor Hackford (director of Devil’s Advocate, current president of the Directors Guild of America)
Dame Helen Mirren gets star number 2,488. For those of you who would like to see her star, it’s right in front of Pig ‘N Whistle Restaurant at 6714 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028.
And before I go, here’s my picture with the queen *play trumpets*
