My trip to see Tom on the red carpet [Sep. 7th, 2013|07:48 pm]

Tom's new movie Parkland was playing at the Toronto International Film Fest last night. I wasn't able to get tickets but decided to go down and stake out the red carpet. This would not normally be my sort of thing - I don't mind crowds when they're organized, as at Cons, but am not fond of crowds in general.

But of course, I make exceptions for Michael and...

A teenage girl got very excited for actor Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) and was calling for him to come over. The Pap told her to stop because he wanted a pathway clear for Kidman. Well, the Colin Firth fan ladies were NOT having that and started to shout "Jeremy!" too.

Good! The paps are so obnoxious and entitled.

Colin Hanks posed for the professional photographers but didn't walk around. The crowd growled a bit but you figure, someone who grew up with a famous dad has had enough of paps & autograph seekers to last a lifetime.

I kinda get that but on the other hand, what else is he going to do there? But then again I wouldn't get bent out of shape cos it's just Colin Hanks. The only thing he's done that resonated with me was his time on "Roswell".

Tom arrived in the second last limo and walked around for quite a long time. I was impressed with Mr. Reclusive! He looked a little bemused "Really? All this?" but he gave the fans what they wanted. The lighting was terrible & most of my pics were blurry or show the back of his head. But he towered over everyone so was easy to spot.

BUT YOU ACHIEVED TOM AND THAT's WHAT COUNTS!

The kid next to me burst himself screaming "ZAC!" and got a photo, while Mr. Efron, unknowingly, stepped on my foot.

I did manage to get free while Zac was still roaming. But the fans behind me were too polite to let me out at first. "Are you sure?" He might come back here." I had to repeat several times I was fine & please go ahead, take my spot, get your best picture. Didn't want to be rude & say I was only there for Tom.

That's so sweet of all of you :)

Ottawa has a collection of bad-ass sculptures. I like sculptures that look like they belong in Dr. Who:

I love those!

Exquisite post!

Thanks very much!

The paps are so obnoxious and entitled.
The same Pap asked a Colin Firth lady if she could step aside so he could get a shot. She pointed out that she had gotten there hours early to get her spot and no, she wasn't leaving it.

But then again I wouldn't get bent out of shape cos it's just Colin Hanks. The only thing he's done that resonated with me was his time on "Roswell".
He got some respectful shouts from the crowd, but nothing like the pandemonium that greeted Tom or Zac. And Paul Giamatti managed to sneak in entirely unnoticed!

BUT YOU ACHIEVED TOM AND THAT's WHAT COUNTS!
When he emerges from his hermitage, it's an event! When he went to the after party he was bold and went in through the front door, giving fans there a thrill. (ZE snuck in through the side door.)
