I am totally star struck. This morning at the Madagascar 2 premiere in Westwood, CA, I saw sooo many stars! Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, Adam Sandler, Mark Wahlberg, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Will.i.am, Fergie, Adam Richter, Cedric the Entertainer and more that I can’t remember right now. It was a morning premiere since it was a children’s movie and everyone brought their kids. I love when the stars and studio execs bring their kids to premieres or screenings because the playing fields are leveled. You can be the highest paid movie star or the most powerful movie studio executive, but if your kid acts weird, rude or disrespectful towards you or others, suddenly in that moment you become just as vulnerable as the rest of us! I didn’t see any famous people’s children getting crazy. Overall it was an excited group of movie-goers today. As I watched Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller talking in the lobby of the theatre, there was a brief moment that I felt like I was hanging out with them and that we were bffs. But then I got called outside to help hand out stuffed Lions, Zebras, Ghiraffs and Hippos and I remembered… oh yeah… I’m working. By the way, Mad 2 is a great movie. The penguins are hilarious! And King Julian is the star of the show as far as I’m concerned. “Hello Freaks!” “I’m a lady!” “Which one of you is attracted to me?” hahaha Let me know what you think of it after you see it. We have so many movies coming up over the next few months!
