Man oh man… There are nights that I’m thankful to be living in Los Angeles! Tonight there is a special screening of Silver Linings Playbook. Now, it said that it included Bradley Cooper and select members of the cast, however with everyone in town and the film nominated for so many Academy Awards I think that pretty much everyone will be showing up.
Pinky, Lindsay and Billy are coming and I’m hoping it’s going to be a fun night. I’ve seen Silver Linings Playbook a couple times now… and in fact this will be my third time seeing it. You need to go out and watch it if you haven’t seen it yet, seriously.
I’m not going to review the movie again, but every time I watch it something new pops out for me. I love it!
The q and a was literally the entire cast!
BRADLEY COOPER, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ROBERT DE NIRO, JACKI WEAVER, CHRIS TUCKER, PAUL HERMAN, DASH MIHOK, SHEA WHIGHAM & Director DAVID O. RUSSELL.
Hot to the damn. Once the cast filed in, I realized we were in the perfect spot.
Front row right in front of Robert De Niro. You can’t get much better than that.
The Q and A was fun. You can tell the cast was tired, but with 4 of the cast members being nominated for Oscars they were in an amazing mood.
David O’Russell talked about working with Chris Tucker and said how awesome it was to see him on screen again.
Bradley Cooper giving audition advice to the people in attendance.
Jennifer Lawrence texted David O’Russell a picture of a bear covered in Cocaine when he texted her a congrats on the Oscar Nomination.
Dash Mihok said that is first day on set was the fight scene and it was amazing to jump into this movie with Robert De Niro in the middle of a fight.
Bradley Cooper going down the line individually and talking about how awesome it was to work with everyone.
During the audience Q and A the first woman to ask a question failed at a joke and wanted applause to which David O’Russell said, “Are you an actress?” LOL… I loved it.
Another audience question… Some guy talked about walking around his house naked reading Shakespeare. I had no idea why he talked about being naked and it confused everyone on the panel.
A young girl asked Jennifer Lawrence a question and said Jennifer was her inspiration. Then said, “I was talking with Leo DiCaprio…” LOL… and the young girl ended the question with, “Can I get a picture with you?”
After the screening the mad rush was on.
The crazy thing was, Jennifer Lawrence bolted out of the screening like she was Katniss in the Hunger Games. Not even Kristen Stewart bolted that fast. She didn’t talk to any of the other panelists, she just ran out of there. It was a little jarring.
Bradley Cooper as usual came right to the stage and took photos with people and signed stuff as well.
My friend and I asked Mr. De Niro if he would mind signing… To my surprise Robert De Niro came right over to the crowd and signed autographs. My friend got him on a magazine and then he signed my Silver Linings Playbook mini poster and he signed Billy’s as well.
Then, to my shock Robert De Niro even got down on his knees and took photos with people. Billy got a photo, Pinky, Lindsay… I was like… The biggest shock ever. This is an acting legend taking time out for everyone in attendance.
I got a photo with Mr. De Niro even though I could barely speak and then asked him to sign my mini football for Silver Linings Playbook as well.
Robert signed my football and continued down the line of people.
I then saw that Bradley Cooper was signing and whipped out a magazine really fast before he left.
I didn’t try for a photo even though I don’t have one. I just figured it was a tad crazy and I would let others get theirs.
It was funny seeing Pinky get a couple photos signed. Pinky the grapher!
Even though Jennifer Lawrence bolted out faster than lightning, I had an amazing night. Robert Fucking De Niro! Never in a million years did I ever think that would happen!
Hopefully, this isn’t going to be a common thing for Jennifer Lawrence as I heard she was nice. Sigh…
Until next time kids…
