Ah, another premiere day. Now, I know what you’re thinking… You’re thinking Mike… Why would you even try and go to a Natalie Portman premiere and expect anything but a smirk and if you are lucky a wave… Sigh… Well, I still have some hope and am really heading out for Kevin Kline… I have loved Kevin Kline’s work forever and have never seen him out and about. Also, Ashton Kutcher is in this flick, which of course is No Strings Attached and Westley himself, Mr. Carey Elwes. So, Scotty is meeting me up there, and fingers crossed maybe Natalie Portman’s cold cold heart with thaw for a night at least.
3:43 p.m. – So, I just got here. I ate In and Out and am feeling queasy… I was feeling queasy before so I can’t blame them. Lol…
3:47 p.m. – The barricade is quite empty, I have to say. I got a spot for Scotty and I pretty close to the front. There are only a few other collector’s. I know there’s a big FOX party tonight so hopefully some of the annoying dealers will be there.
4:05 p.m. – The carpet is pretty basic, nothing too interesting… Except they faux framed some of the movie posters down the line… Strange.
4:16 p.m. – We are really close to the carpet. I mean not even two lanes of traffic, so if Ms. Natalie Portman doesn’t sign here then there’s not much hope for her at all.
4:21 p.m. – Scotty just got here. He brought a few things. I have a couple magazines for Ashton Kutcher, my A Few Good Men poster for Demi Moore, and four posters for Kevin Kline! LOL… He’s just never around!
4:34 p.m. – I also have a couple rare V for Vendetta posters a friend gave me for Natalie Portman… I just don’t know if she’ll do it. It’s hard to get my hopes up. This is why I really decided to come for Kevin Kline. This way I’m not going to be too disappointed… lol…
4:54 p.m. – It’s cold… Not freezing cold, but still cold nonetheless… lol… Oh wait… Dude, it’s drizzling… Noooooo not the rain!
5:01 p.m. – Still an hour and a half away from arrivals… Scotty just left to take his, “before premiere pee….” I think he also ran to Best Buy around the corner to try and find a DVD for Ashton Kutcher to sign… lol… I’m wise to his tricks!
5:21 p.m. – There are a few French girls who I think attend UCLA. They are clearly mad… simply mad… for Ashton Kutcher… lol… I mean he’s cool and all but I just don’t get the fanatic fandom over him… He’s a cool guy and all… but…
5:46 p.m. – Scotty just took a picture of us before the premiere. He said if Natalie Portman doesn’t sign then he’s going to take a post premiere pic and look at the difference!
5:55 p.m. – Wow… Security is moving the barricade even CLOSER! I mean it’s like another six feet closer to the carpet. They are just making sure it doesn’t go over… It’s hard not to get excited about this. Now we have an even better shot of getting Natalie Portman to actually sign. Literally we are right next to the carpet.
6:09 p.m. – It’s still drizzling… grrrr…
6:15 p.m. – It stopped raining! Man oh … it started drizzling again… great…
6:34 p.m. – Some early arrivals. No one I really know… I’m hoping Kevin Kline will arrive on the early side… This way we can get him over and at least get him.
6:41 p.m. – Oh… I think that’s… Yep that’s Carey Elwes! I have loved the Princess Bride forever… and He’s Westley, the man dude! Everyone calls him over and he crosses and starts signing. I pull out my laser disc, and my DVD cover. I have Rob Reiner, Carol Kane, and Mandy Patinkin on the DVD and only Carol Kane on the Laser Disc…
6:43 p.m. – Carey Elwes is getting closer now… He comes over to us and I ask him to sign my laser disc. He personalizes it to Mike and then I asked him to sign the DVD and he does really fast. He’s very nice and takes his time.
6:45 p.m. – Oh crap, that’s Kevin Kline… He arrived just as Carey Elwes finished signing… Everyone calls out for him. He holds his hand up telling us he would be over in a minute. He takes some photos with Carey Elwes…
6:48 p.m. – It looks like Kevin is going to head onto the carpet… dammit!
6:49 p.m. – Oh… Wait… Kevin is coming over… Everyone around me takes one of my posters cause they don’t have anything for him. I also have Erica’s Soapdish poster as well for him. I have Soapdish, In and Out and Dave.

6:51 p.m. – Kevin comes over and signs a few in our section but not where I am. Then he heads down to the other end where he says he has to say, “Hi” to some people….
6:52 p.m. – One of the guys got Kevin Kline on my Dave poster and then took Erica’s Soapdish poster. So, that’s cool.
6:54 p.m. – Kevin Kline is spending so much time down on that end I’m starting to get worried… Everyone says, “Oh I’ll be back,” but then it’s “Oh, I’m late.” Ugh…
6:57 p.m. – Finally Kevin is starting to make his way back to us. He still is taking his time however. He gets my In and Out poster then Erica’s Soapdish poster that the other guys have. Then finally he makes his way to me.
6:58 p.m. – Kevin Kline signed my Soapdish poster and I asked him if he would mind if I got a photo, but he said “oh… I have to go.” I was like… Okay… he just took a bunch of photos with people… ah well… Scotty got him as well… Thank God, at least I got what I really came for. Whoo hoo! I’m very happy and to get all of my stuff done, I’m happy.

7:02 p.m. – Someone else just arrived… It’s Lake Bell… Oh shit. I forgot she’s in Scream 4 and I didn’t bring my poster. Ugh… Sure enough she’s coming over to sign. Ah well… If that’s the only thing I forgot I’m doing okay!

7:10 p.m. – Oh… That’s a big car… Oh… yep, it’s Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher…
7:11 p.m. – The squealing… SQUEALING! The girls have gone wild! Lol… Insanity… Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher come right over. I could get Ashton on my Details magazine but I really want Demi Moore on my A Few Good Men poster.
7:12 p.m. – Ashton signs for a bunch of people but the French girls really want a photo with him. Alas, that really didn’t work out…
7:13 p.m. – Demi Moore is signing a bunch of stuff, and I keep asking if she will sign my A Few Good Men poster and she finally notice’s it and signs it perfectly. I thank her and she says, “You are so welcome!” Demi Moore has the most beautiful smile! Yay…
7:15 p.m. – Ashton signs for pretty much the entire barricade. He then heads onto the red carpet with Demi Moore.
7:17 p.m. – Wow, I’m a little shocked by all that. I had to sacrifice my Ashton Kutcher but I really wanted Demi Moore, so I’m super stoked.

7:21 p.m. – Oh… here it comes… It’s Ms. Natalie Portman… I can see her in the car… She gets out of the car and everyone screams for her. She looks over and waves and then starts heading into the carpet.

7:23 p.m. – Okay, everyone is chanting now… You have 200 people chanting Natalie… Natalie… Natalie… She looks over and then waves again before turning her back on us and then talking to Kevin Kline… Sigh…
7:25 p.m. – Everyone starts chanting again… Natalie… Natalie… Natalie… She looks over briefly and then just walks onto the carpet… Sigh… I’m not shocked by this… I mean… No, I am shocked. I’m shocked that someone would just ignore 200 people chanting their name! lol… Like really, when you’re like five feet away! I mean yesh… It’s just the ingratitude… I know Natalie Portman is not fan friendly. I mean anyone who likes her knows this, but it’s just… So many people have it hard right now, and when you’re doing as well as she has this year and last I would just hope that you would want to give back. But, I guess I’m wrong.
7:33 p.m. – I’m climbing down off my soapbox…
7:34 p.m. – Scotty and I are heading to the other end of the carpet. Just to see if we can get anyone over… Even though it’s a lost cause… sigh…
7:39 p.m. – Carey Elwes comes over to sign a few. That was really nice of him.
7:41 p.m. – Kevin Kline and Natalie Portman head into the premiere. One guy yelled, Thanks for signing Natalie! Lol… That was funny. Even though I didn’t get Natalie Portman I still am quite happy. I got a bunch of Kevin Kline stuff signed, Demi Moore, Carey Elwes, I say, a pretty good night overall! I will not let Natalie Portman ruin this night! Lol…
