#TIFF12: MR. WILL & THE STARS OF TIFF 2012
TIFF 2012 was another great Festival. The fact that Toronto plays Host to such a prestigious and glamorous event is a true testament to the level of respect the Film Industry has for our City. I am so proud to be a Torontonian and proud of my fellow Torontonians who made it all happen, from the Hot Dog Vendors who fed those of us with no time for a sit-down meal, to the Celebrity Drivers and Security Guards for keeping everyone out of harm's way.
This year I met many Stars and my only regret ...
#TIFF12: ZAC EFRON LEAVES TORONTO
Zac Efron is one of the final Stars to leave Toronto with TIFF 2012 rapidly coming to an end tomorrow. The Actor was extremely late for his flight back to Los Angeles earlier today and still was nice enough to accommodate Fans with a Bodyguard keeping him safe from harm. With less than 40 minutes left till his flight, Efron successfully made it aboard his flight - prompting the question of whether or not Celebrities get preferential treatment if they are late to board.
Watch a Clip I captured ...
#TIFF12: HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FESTIVAL BY MR. WILL
1. Bruce Willis actually signing an Autograph for once - Press Conference for Looper. Believe me, he rarely does it! His younger Co-Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt certainly could learn a lesson or two from that, getting booed after turning-down Fans yet again.
2. Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler arriving in Toronto together for Spring Breakers.
3. Kristen Stewart at the On the Road Premiere. Smiling! A great regret of mine for not bothering to queue toe Red Carpet for her as she was ...
#TIFF12: ZAC EFRON IN TORONTO FOR “THE PAPERBOY”
Perhaps this can be called his most daring performance to date. Hearththrob Zac Efron reportedly was amazingly kind to Fans on the Red Carpet for his latest effort, The Paperboy at VISA Screening Room earlier this evening. I spotted the dapper Efron at the Afterparty for the Film where he made every effort to take Photos with Fans, but after a bit of pushing and shoving, everything had to be curtailed as he was ushered-in by a team of Bodyguards.
Efron spent a bit of time in New York ...
#TIFF12: LEE DANIELS IN TORONTO FOR “THE PAPERBOY”
Precious Director Lee Daniels comes into TIFF 2012 with a world of buzz for The Paperboy, and although the response hasn't been as ecstatic this time around, Star Zac Efron has shown his vote of confidence in the Film, coming out to promote it. Daniels was touched that I admitted how much Precious changed my life and told me I was v. sweet. Regardless, I'm still excited to see this one when it hits theatres next month!

#TIFF12: PENÉLOPE CRUZ IN TORONTO FOR “TWICE BORN”
Academy Award-winning Actress Penélope Cruz is every bit as charming in-person as she is on the big screen. Although, rushed upon arrival of her new Romantic Drama Twice Born, she did promise to come out and sign some Autographs afterward. Unfortunately though, she first agreed to taking a Photo before her Handler advised there was no time left and then she later told me she had to go. Heartbreak!
Cruz's Husband Javier Bardem also currently is in-town doing promotion for his Documentary, ...
#TIFF12: ROBERT DUVALL IN TORONTO FOR “JAYNE MANSFIELD’S CAR”
Legendary Actor Robert Duvall greeted Fans with warm reception earlier today at the Press Conference for Billy Bob Thorton's latest directorial effort, Jayne Mansfield's Car. The 81-year-old Actor stopped to take Photos with Fans, interacting with them at length. Who would've known that the Star of The Godfather Star would be so friendly?

#TIFF12: BILLY BOB THORNTON IN TORONTO FOR “JAYNE MANSFIELD’S CAR”
A Jack of all Trades, Billy Bob Thornton was spotted out and about doing Press earlier for Jayne Mansfield's Car, in which he both directs and acts. Genuinely a nice Guy, Thornton was generous with Autographs and Photos with his Fans. The Film premieres this evening at Roy Thomson Hall, centering around two Families brought together by the death of a loved one.
