Toronto International Film Festival 2014 - Day 5 - TIFF14 - Andrew Garfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Miles Teller, Sam Worthington, Evan Bird, Bobby Cannavale, Julianne Moore and more
Day 5 of TIFF14 would be my most successful of the fest stats wise. However, it did start with failure. I went to try and get Jennifer Aniston and Sam Worthington at their premiere for Cake, but was unable to get close enough. For some reason, the crowd there was substantially larger than anyone should have expected. I got very close to getting an Aniston, but in the end, not close enough.
I instantly left that disaster and headed to Ryerson for the premiere of Whiplash. Although Melissa Benoist was not there, I did well enough between Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons there that I was pleased with the time I spent there.
The next premiere, back at Elgin was for "Still Alice" with Julianne Moore and Kate Bosworth. I got lucky with my position for Moore, and got 3 autographs in the 1st minute or so of her signing. Bosworth on the other hand... refused to sign the specific photo I had. Not having another photo with me, I went away shutout by her.
I headed back to Ryerson for the back end of Whiplash and managed a couple more Miles Teller autographs there. After doing that, I hurried back to the front of Ryerson for the premiere of Adult Beginners. I managed to get an autograph from everyone of the cast there, Nick Kroll, Bobby Cannavale, Joel McHale and Rose Byrne all attended, and I got each of them at least once.
With a couple hours to kill, I went over to a celeb hotspot, and fluked into another encounter with The Theory Of Everything star Eddie Redmayne which nabbed me a couple more autographs. I also saw former The Killing star Evan Bird there, he was in town to promote Maps To The Stars. Also saw rapper Lil Jon in the short time I was there. Also ran into the rapper named Lil Jon, who was in town for a show & happened to also be there.
I went back over to the Elgin for a night time premiere of The Keeping Room with Sam Worthington and Hailee Steinfeld. Both of the stars were terrific signers there, and I managed to get a couple from each. Sam might not have been at his old "sign 13 at once" level of nice this festival, but he was still really good. I also saw Britt Marling there, but had nothing for her. I also saw former The Walking Dead star Sarah Wayne Callies there. Despite reports I have heard of her being an unfriendly person to meet, she came over to the crowd and did photos with and signed autographs for those asking.
I hurried across the downtown core to the POW to try and hopefully get The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield at his premiere of 99 Homes with Michael Shannon. Thankfully, I had success there. I managed to get Shannon on 1 photo, and shortly after Andrew Garfield on 2 photos. Oddly, I had two odd interactions with Andrew on that carpet. First time, he said something to me. He shook his head no, is body language seemed negative, yet he still signed the photo I had. The second time, he pushed my photo away, then pulled it back in before signing it. Random, but I had no complaints with the end result.
