So anyway, over the next couple of days I will be posting pictures and telling stories from the red carpet. If you want actual coverage of the fest go check out Mad Hatter at The Dark in the Matinee who is making the rounds, or Black Sheep Reviews where Joseph got accepted to be on the You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger red carpet. But if you want pictures of the stars, well darlings, I have them.
The first thing that is shocking about seeing any celebrity is the realization that they are not all ten feet tall. I always expected Geoffry Rush to be a tall guy. He`s quite the opposite actually. This was my first red carpet ever. We came unprepared without anything to sign so this one was fairly tame for us. The King`s Speech is an interesting title for me because I have read the script and enjoyed it very much.
Rush again. At this point I`m already feeling start struck. A new obsession is growing.
I have no idea what her name is, but this is Colin Firth`s wife.
The man of the hour arrives. There was debate about whether Colin Firth would come sign autographs or not because he`s generally low-key at these kinds of things and no one really knew if he was a jerk or not. He disappeared for a moment and then reappeared after the crowd started signing Happy Birthday to him. He was very polite and very British.
There`s the money shot.
