I have to tell you, people are acting stupider and stupider at large events. Dealers crashing into folks, fans freaking out and acting even more crazy, I mean look… I know it’s fun and I’ve fanned out more than a few times but come on people…
Erica headed down to the This Is The End premiere and was able to get a bunch of folks including Harry Potter star Emma Watson! Paul Rudd! Danny McBride! Seth Rogen! and More!
Check out her full recap below!
As awesome as Billy’s recap of the premiere for This is the End is, I thought I’d add a few more colorful tales of the day.
Billy snagged a great place on the barricade, but this was a really packed premiere and we were packed in tight even before the event began. So tight, that when I looked down, I had 4 feet since these Japanese girls behind me were pressed up so close I wasn’t even sure where legs were mine. At least I wasn’t sandwiched in with the tall drag queen in the press box since she would totally tower over me.
When the red carpet finally begins, Danny McBride heads straight over and signs for us. The girls behind me freak out and hand Danny their Nook to get signed. Really? That was your goal for today? To get Danny McBride to sign your Nook? Danny is also puzzled and stops and asks “are you sure you want me to sign this?” He gets nods from the girls and sort of shrugs before he signs it. Right with you there, Danny!
While Billy got a photo flop for his selfie with Charisma Carpenter, my selfie totally missed (I’m not good at these!) so here’s the best picture I got of her. I should’ve asked if she was going to show up in the Veronica Mars movie…
Seth Rogan actually signed a full “Seth” on Billy’s poster since it was the first he did that day.
I was shocked since it’s normally a “S” which is what I got on my 50/50 poster.
Yes, Paul Rudd was skipping folks as his publicist directed him past a whole bunch of folks, but she did point out my (bright green) Perks of Being a Wallflower poster which he gladly signed. And then he was whisked off several feet down the line again.
Since Jay Baruchel skipped us, things were quiet for a bit. Disappointing since I was hoping to get Jay on How to Train Your Dragon for my sister as a nice surprise. I guess her surprise will be to read it here since I don’t actually have anything to give her. (Hi Linda!)
The next limo drops and there is a huge squeal so we know Emma Watson has arrived. She heads straight to the barricade and starts to make her way down the barricade.
It’s an absolute frenzy as one particular idiot undesirable basically body dives from the 6th row. He’s hoping that he can lunge over enough people to get something signed.
I’m crushed in the madness and totally covered by CB (ahem!). However, I have the wonderfully bright green Perks of Being a Wallflower poster and Emma’s publicist sees it and calls it out.
Emma’s face lights up and she searches for my poster (!) and brings it out and signs it beautifully. Yeah! It really is a great movie and I love seeing that the cast really enjoys it as well.
Emma is steadily making her way down the row, smiling and signing as she goes. She sees the idiot crushing people and makes a face and avoids him. I heard that he chased her down the line, repeatedly diving on people, until she finally said “no, you’re pushing people.” Such a smart cookie!
She continues to sign down the line, but isn’t taking pictures – probably because she’d be brained by all the flying posters/diving autograph pros. I don’t blame her as I take an elbow to the throat (CB!!) and get choked as the Japanese girls try to get their Nook signed again. Sigh!
Since there is no Jonah Hill (Mike would cry himself to sleep if Jonah showed and Mike wasn’t there to greet the Academy Award nominee) and no James Franco (to the heartbreak of so many girls who made signs), that leaves Jason Segel who Billy swears is in this SUV which looks like it’s going to drop someone off, then zooms off and around the back. We never did see him so maybe that was Jason.
Nick Swardson arrives and signs for a few folks…
… and Martin Starr also arrives, but gives a half hearted wave.
And that’s that! My main goal was to get Emma on Perks and I got a bonus Paul Rudd and also Seth on 50/50 so it was a good day.
