November 17th, 2009.
British Billionaire Richard Branson!
Noted Feminist Germaine Greer!
Former US President Bill Clinton!
'The Fonz' Henry Winkler!
All of these played themselves in this film/documentary, and might therefore have been possible attendees. Awesome! However, since this premiere was billed in advance as 'small', this was probably the first clue that not all of the above would, in fact, show up. And indeed, most didn't. Only one did. No, not him. And no, not that guy either. And not her.
So… that's that, then. Fare thee well, young stars: go out there and make your lives extraordinary!
I'll just head home and get steel myself to do battle against the thousand screaming girls at tomorrow's Zac Efron premiere…..
Until next time!
