The majority of the primary cast from the CW hit show "Supernatural" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
In total, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jim Beaver & God himself, Misha Collins went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
Going to SDCC
We first saw Misha. This was upsetting for me, because it was only upon his arrival that I realized....I had nothing for him to sign. I had 2 instances like this that weekend, this would be the first. I still took a few pics of him & asked him filming was going & if he knew how many episodes he would be around for this year. He kept pretty tight lipped about the latter question, but said things have gone well so far for this season.
At about the same time as Colling arrival, Jim Beaver also arrived. He stopped to sign for the few of us who had stuff for him, and really, I didnt get much of a chance to chat with him as this was prime time for people arriving, and actors for other shows were still coming in as well. I told him to have a good trip & have fun. Unsure if he heard me or not, hopefully he did.
Not too long later, Jensen Ackles showed up. Myself & 1 of the other hounds who got him only 2 wks ago decided to give him a pass for autographs, but that didnt stop a couple of the others from asking him. Had a few words with him about filming this season, said its gone well. Asked him if we'll see Death much this season, he had a bit of a grin, but no verbal reaction to it outside of "I dont know". Then he was on his way.
The last person we got on Saturday was the SPN fanbases favorite love/hate couple. Genevieve & Jared Padalecki arrived, just literally minutes before the cut off time for their flight....but that didnt stop the demon & demon killer from stopping to sign for us & chat some. Gen was incredibly pleasant, and yeah, I know how some of you fans pick on her because of your personal views on her husband and his life. My opinion on it, grow up. I've read your theories, and IMO I think its pretty far fetched. Not impossible, but verrrry far fetched. Shes a pleasant & friendly girl who doesnt seem like the type of person who would try to take advantage of any situation for PR or $, so really, stop assuming such a thing till 1 of your batshit nuts friends comes up with some real verifiable proof of your idiotic claims. As for Jared, he was his usually friendly self. even called Gen back when he realized the other hound had a photo that she was on. She of course has started signing "Genevieve Padalecki" which the hound, who had got her back when she signed Cortese, said "oh youve changed the signature" which she replied with the fairly obvious "well I'm married now". Jared was signing for me when I asked him about getting held up in customs for his return to Vancouver a couple weeks prior, which he said "yeah, I have been hauled in 3 times already.". I asked him what he did to piss them off & he said it was a visa issue. he then politely said they had to go (which they really did...like I said, showing up literally last min) & the couple hurried off to their gate.
Returning from SDCC - I never saw anyone. I missed Misha by literally seconds, which better result in the firing of a specific Burger King employee, since the incompetent dullard cost me anywhere from 45-75 seconds of time, and I missed Misha by less than 30 seconds. Jim stayed down there an extra day, as for J2, as far as I know, no one has any idea when they returned.

I know Genevieve Cortese and I don't like her, but then I have spent more than 10 min in the airport with her

Dude, I dislike Gen because of my personal views on her.

Hee. Pitch perfect dig at the loons at the gossip comm.

These are awesome pictures and awesome stories! Thank you for sharing! And I agree about your thing about Genevieve! I met her at this years LA Convention and she was so sweet and adorable! Shame on those who hate her just because she is married to Jared!

Hey, Padalecki himself said he bought her
7/25/2011 05:54:43 pm
My friend your views about the couple are based at your assumptions just like our views are based on ours.

Thanks for sharing more of your awesome pics mate, and the little blurb to go with them... Heading over to Vancouver in 3 weeks so I may see you around again :)

I dont think you should tar everyone with the same brush you know. If we are mature people we tend to form our opinions based on fact and on personal experience.
7/25/2011 10:11:04 pm
You are very unprofessional, giving opinions when you have no real knowledge of the situation. All gossip columns talk trash. You think how they are talking is so wrong yet by commenting on it you are giving it more power. Real smart.

I guess you wanted attention and attention you got. Congratulations!

Thanx for the pix CG, tell Jensen his fans think he should wear shorts way more often!

Well, I am allowing comments that are unpleasant, because I simply wanted it to be shown to some of you, what type of "fans" I was referring to.

If U dont want me calling some of the viewers here "batshit nuts"..quit emailing me several times a week asking me to spy on them, verify where they were @ this time & with whom. I saw several people here use the term "classless" & "douchebag" to categorize me. Do you want to be the pot or the kettle? Yes, I can absolutely be a snarky prick when I feel like it. Yes, I took a purposeful pot shot at some users of this group..just as you all do each time you concoct situations & theories about the lives of J2.. or is it somehow not "classless" to try & sexualize them without proof to meet whatever agenda you have?

SPN's favorite love/hate couple? Really? Since when? I don't love or hate either, it's more indifference, since my favorite is Jensen Ackles and how he is married to makes me happy for him. I don't give two hoots about JP and GC and I don't think most of the SPN fans care as much as you do.
