Hugh Jackman received star number 2,487 in the streets of Hollywood yesterday and it was a great experience seeing him in person! Les Misérables director Tom Hooper was in attendance, as well as castmates Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. The Tonight Show Host Jay Leno was the guest speaker.
And now, here are the photos!
The freshly polished star. This photo was taken around 8:30 am, before the crowd arrived and the ceremony started. The guys have just finished working on it and it’s ready to be unveiled later during the day. I didn’t wanna wait for that, I was too excited. Might as well take a picture before everyone else does, and while it’s still shiny!
The ceremony was held in front of Madame Tussauds, and they were nice enough to put out a wax figure of Wolverine outside to match the occasion.
As expected, news teams and fans from Australia made their presence felt. Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!!
The stars have arrived!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Walk of Famer, Hugh Jackman! He’s greeted by the warm cheers from the crowd and warm hugs from his loved ones and friends from the industry, including Anne Hathaway.
Academy Award Winning Director Tom Hooper sat beside Anne Hathaway. He’s most known for his work on The King’s Speech.
Guest speaker Jay Leno took the stage…
…and went on to give him a big hug.
Hugh was given the certificate.
All eyes on this super good looking man now.

His exclusive photographer:
That’s his daughter, Ava. She’s already a better photographer than me.
He posed with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.
Photo op with cast mates!
For Les Mis fans, the caption can also be Fantine, Jean Valjean, & Cosette!
After the ceremonies were interviews here and there. Here’s one with his fellow Aussie, Renee Bargh from Extra.
Before I end this post, please check out the trailer for Les Misérables:
It opens December 25, 2012.
For those who want to visit his star, it’s on 6931 Hollywood Blvd, right in front of Madame Tussauds.
Congratulations, Hugh Jackman!
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.
