it's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb...

it's TIFF time here in toronto!! from september 11-22, a tonne of stars are in the city for the Toronto International Film Festival! i'll definitely be walking around in hopes of catching some star citings ;)

sunday was a big street festival to celebrate the start of tiff. K'naan and Fefe Dobson performed and they were both pretty good live. there was food, free cupcakes (which must have run out by the time we got there..*sad face*) and free glass bottles of coke being given out (glass bottles are so much cuter!)
**lots of pictures ahead**
first up, Fefe Dobson was playing when we got there (you might know her song 'ghost')
the hosts; the only reason i post this picture is because this lady is from a commercial they show at Christmastime that i find hilarious; here
gosh i need a spray tan or something, and my hand looks really bony...but yay for free coke! (even though i don't drink pop haha)
probably only Canadians will know this guy; George Stroumboulopoulos (longest last name ever!) introducing K'naan
getting everyone into it.

 that night at 6:00 was the premier of the movie 127 Hours with James Franco and directed by Danny Boyle (who also did Slumdog Millionaire). me and my 2 friends had wanted to get tickets, but we didn't up doing it. but then last minute, my one friend said she was still going to come up and we thought we would check out the red carpet and see what it's all about.
we had no idea what time people would start walking down the carpet, but we got there around 4:30 and they ended up coming around 5:30, so it really wasn't that bad. 
 all the media people waiting for the important people to arrive
Danny Boyle
David Cross
Clémence Poésy; i heard she's going to be on gossip girl and she has been in harry potter? (i'm not sure, i've never watched either)-i loved what she was wearing.
Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn (in the white dress) who wouldn't turn around!
Aron Ralston; who the movie was about (a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in a canyon)
 there he is! James Franco; the man of the hour
so cute and smiley
seriously *this* close, of course my camera wouldn't click when he was looking my way, and then when he turned it took! grrr!!

such a cool experience overall. last night was the premier of Black Swan which i have been dying to see and had no idea it was playing at tiff until sunday night. it stars Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman. i can't wait for this one to come out in theatres. i really wish i could have made it to see them on the red carpet. and of course, i still want to see 127 Hours as well.

when i looked at the list of stars that are scheduled to appear at the festival, i couldn't believe all the names. Ryan Reynolds is here, at some point. but i don't know when!! oh man would i love to see him in person!!

Thank you for giving me that little starstruckness this morning. :) Posey is adorable - I'm a Harry Potter fanatic so I know all about her. Amber Tamblyn is my favorite Sisterhood girl and James FRANCO. mhhhhhh...yum. :)

I love how you seem so casual "oh ya..then we strolled over to the red carpet premiere and spotted some celebs". :P

Black Swan looks amazing! Portman has always been one of my favorites. Does it come out later in the US? :-/ I didn't think it was already out. Must see :)

Ahhhh so jealous you were so close to James Franco - he's so hot!! I saw a trailer for that movie too and it looks interesting. Also looking forward to Black Swan - looks creepy and sexy!

LovelyBee said...

I love how you're like Oh yeah! I meet celebs all the time! You know it's a usual day for moi :)

Omg! George Stromboulopoulos!!I used to have the biggest crush on him growing up!!! The good old MuchMusic days.

Did you know that David Cross and Amber Tamblyn were dating? I was kinda shocked when I heard that because I do not picture them together

oh i am jealous beyond words. i'm missing TIFF because of stupid passport issues (well, ok, i forgot to renew it) and i'm so sad. also, i go to school with james franco so it's so funny to see him in a suit on the red carpet!
