Star Trek Into Darkness After Party! Kate Beckinsale Holy Crap Awesomeness! So Nice! J.J. Abrams! John Cho! Karl Urban! Alice Eve! Peter Weller! Autographs! Photos! And More!
After going back and forth about waiting for the after party for the Star Trek Into Darkness premiere I’m still deciding. I know it’s annoying, but waiting 2 to 3 more hours seems like torture. Still it is torture and the chance to get Leonard Nimoy is pulling me to stay.
Yeah, that’s been going on for an hour and a half.
Erica and I got Baja Fresh and then headed back. The barricades are lined up all along Hollywood so who knows where to stand.
After some debate we settled on a spot… But then… Then we decided to run down to the end where everyone would be walking out as opposed to the end when they would be getting into the party.
It’s so sad to see the wreckage of the red carpet once the actual premiere is over. LOL…
It’s like the Enterprise being battle damaged and falling into the earth’s atmosphere from the movie.
Wow, I geeked out there.
Anyway, there are a lot of people waiting that’s for sure.
And here are the people flooding out. Chris Pine ran out and told everyone he had to pee so he couldn’t stop.
Ummmm why didn’t you pee inside the Dolby theater… The same place as the Academy Awards? As Erica pointed out… “He waited to pee in the port-a-poties?”
Alice Eve left and still came over and signed more. I honestly didn’t have anything left for her.
Then we spotted Judd Apatow and his family and a little star by the name of Tom Cruise! Tom didn’t stop. LOL… He did say hi though.
Karl Urban signed a few on the way out
John Cho did sign a couple. I got him on my other mini poster but couldn’t find my Sulu individual poster. Only me.
Peter Weller came out and signed, he was again pretty cool.
Then J.J. Abrams signed up a storm once again. Dude, the man is amazing!
I saw Leonard Nimoy but he wouldn’t even look over on the way out… Sadness…
Either would Zachary Quinto. Man oh man… Such a disappointment. Come on brother!
And then… Then it happened… The stunning the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale. She was leaving as J.J. Abrams was signing and came right on over. Stunning and beautiful as she is.
Keep in mind that this is not her movie. She was only a guest and yet, here she is taking time for the fans calling for her… hundreds of fans, longer than the barricade for the Underworld: Awakening premiere!
Most people didn’t have anything for her to sign so what did Kate do? Photos.
It was so above and beyond for her to do that. She did the ENTIRE barricade. THE ENTIRE BARRICADE!
I did manage to get a photo with her. I hate barricade photos, and I think I look like crap. BUT… It was 11 hours on the streets of Hollywood so I need to cut myself some slack.
I think Pinky is correct… No one looks good when standing next to Kate Beckinsale. LOL.. She’s too stunning.
I talked to Kate about Cold Comfort Farm and told her I love that movie. She literally stopped for a second and we talked about it. She said, “Oh, you’re the one!” lol… I told her I’ve turned so many people on to that movie… and she was like, “Really?” I was like yep. It’s awesome!
A moment with Kate Beckinsale was totally worth waiting.
So nice. Seriously.
Until next time kids…

Where was that Simon guy? Did he show up at all? Great pic with Kate…Not sure what is up with that Quinto guy though. Hollywood is about promotion…c’mon. Great job and maybe I can go to the next one of these.
She’s so stunning, just beautiful. Love your pic with her!
