During the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, I met a few exceptionally friendly celebs. Most notably, The star of Clash Of The Titans, as well as the all time highest grossing movie, Avatar. Of course, that man is Sam Worthington.
I had the pleasure of catching up with Sam on the red carpet, first for his film with Oscar winning acting legend Helen Mirren in "The Debt". At that time I had made the strong statement that I thought Sam was the best signer at film fest. After that interaction I did run into another strong contender with Dexter star, Michael C. Hall. But Sam had a chance to put a stranglehold on the title...and he did.
Final day of my film fest, I happened to come across Sam at the hotel. There was about 5-6 of us waiting, and he signed ALL THIRTEEN photos I had at the same time. he made little comments, asking me what I was doing with them, told me he didnt care if I was selling them & even said good on me if I did. His easy going persona didnt stop with me. When a very cute Japanese girl asked him if he would remove his glasses for a photo with, he quickly responded in jest with "sure, if you remove your top", then proceeded to take off his glasses anyways, despite the girl not acceptiong his counter-proposal. With another fan who was getting an index card signed, he made her sign 1 for him & give it to him. Another fan he posed for a photo with, holding the signed index card from the other fan. He was just a joy to be around.
With any large venture such as a film fest, there is always going to be losers, and winners. This years biggest winner, my NEW Best Celebrity encounter Number 1 ranked star - SAM WORTHINGTON!

I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
