2 Mar - Marley and Me premiere

March 2nd, 2009.

So.... it's Marley and Me. Starring Rachel from Friends and Hansel from Zoolander. And a dog. This was a bit of a no-brainer, to be honest. Premiere 1 of 10 scheduled in London this month. (Eek!). There's another one scheduled tomorrow, as is rain in London. Outstanding...

I'd like to think I framed this deliberately for the dog and the microphone but this was actually one of the most hasty shots, taken after I realised I really needed to take this one before I ran out of batteries.

She thinks male models are vain, stupid, and incredibly self-centered. (But what does she think about male models?) (it's a Zoolander reference.... Zoolander starred Owen Wilson...) (really? I had to explain that reference? Watch Zoolander, like, immediately!)

Hail to the King. Yellow Cap Guy wins this round, I actually had a rare failure with my camera seizing up when she was right in front of me, distracted by the massively bright reflective jackets on the security people gathered around the area. Argh.

Owen Wilson wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreamt about being an astronaut, rather he was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of his. And Sting. Sting would be another person. The music he's created over the years, he doesn't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, he respects that.... (I... probably shouldn't admit to being such a fan of Zoolander...)

"Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot." Zoolander. Great movie. This movie, though? Who knows. I'm just along for the ride and waiting for 'Watchmen' to be released in cinemas.

"I found her. I'm keeping her". I'll observe that it's rare to have the two lead stars in such constant proximity to each other. Handy little package deal... useful for not having to choose between Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston for Photo For The Day

Jennifer Aniston escapes the gravitational pull of Owen Wilson momentarily. Also : big thanks to random paparazzi flash/muzzle/gunfire for some rather exciting lighting effects. And, sure, some heavy selective darkening in photoshop. But the lighting was real!!

Dress by Guerlain (I'm making this up but want some authenticity.... isn't that, like, a chocolate?). Handbag by Fendi. Jewellery by Tiffany. And lighting by Paparazzi. I gotta admit... having three or four dozen paparazzi on site specifically to allow me adequate side-lighting is paying dividends, here.

In other news, there are theories that Jennifer Aniston has the power to spit venom when stressed. They're fanciful, yet oddly there is evidence...

I have no idea who this is (as usual), but she was being interviewed. And the dude sitting next to her also being interviewed looked about twelve years old and had a brown hair afro. (I cropped him out of the picture because... obviously)

One odd (and not so funny) thing about this premiere was that unlike every other one... basically ever, the police made NO attempt to stop people from standing on hyrdrants, hoardings, fenceposts, bins... anything they wanted. This meant my stool lost some of its usual awesome power... until people started asking if they could stand on the stool for 'just a second'... at which point everybody wanted a go. There's a moral there...

"Hello?"

Until next time!
