Let's go back to the fall of 2012. Exactly this time last year. It was the Toronto International Film Festival (aka the time when all the celebs flock to our city). I'm not one to go out of my way to catch a glimpse of a celeb and to be honest, prior to this, I had seen zero celebs in my life. Go me!
A friend and I were going for dinner in the area where the major theatres are and we noticed that a few of the bigger films were happening that night.
We heard a few screams across the street so we clearly bolted in that direction, dodging traffic and it was like the sky opened and sang to me. There stood Bradley Cooper. There were probably only about 20 people gathered at this time (and it was outside the media tent so it was a huge area). I felt like we locked eyes and he started walking towards my friend and I. I nearly died. He started signing some autographs and made his way to us, taking selfies with everyone, answering their questions and was SO friendly and genuine. I can't recall if I asked him anything as I was so damn shocked and I definitely didn't get an autograph (no pen/paper and I'm not a fan of them). I did, however get these beauties below. His smile is forever etched in my brain. We were so giddy the rest of the night.
That, my friends, is the story of how Bradly and I became BFFs. I think what made it most fun is that we just happened to "stumble" upon him and we were there before the throngs of crazy people starting pushing and screaming.
We also happened to stumble upon Hallie Barry. The photo below isn't mine but see that pink camera back there? I was standing behind that crazy person. See those people who are much higher than everyone else? Ya, they brought their own step stools. Hardcores.
Have you seen any celebs recently in your area?
