Yes, you read that correctly! Last evening Mr. D and I attended the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s a prestigious event in the world of film and held here every September.
We Torontonians love it!
Hollywood royalty, like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, and Gerard Butler descend on our fair city. And we go celebrity crazy. :)
This is my first time at TIFF and Mr. D and I saw Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler. We were at the premier showing and had VIP access to the red carpet. SQUEEEEE!!!
So, yes, I got to see Gerard Butler in person! In fact, how do you like this for up close and personal!!
I held in my crazy fan girl scream. Barely. However, I will admit, with him standing so close to me, I wanted to whisper in his ear, “You want to play Jules de Moutier, my hero in A MIDNIGHT DANCE, right?” LOL
Mr. D and I were both armed with cameras. Mr. D calls this pic below, “Lila and Gerard” because those are my hands up ready to snap the shot of Gerard you see above. I allow Mr. D his humor.
Trailer for Machine Gun Preacher — coming to theaters soon! I overheard the real Sam Childers say, “Children are still dying in Sudan.” This is the kind of film that stays with you.
