'Dark Shadows' Johnny Depp film's premiere in Hollywood on Monday evening 5-7-12 at Grauman's Chinese Theatre
*Yawn* So we arrive just after 6 a.m. well prepared to wait all day to meet the stars of this movie.
I was happy to wait all day for Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Bella Heathcote, Chloë Grace Moretz, Alice Cooper, & Tim Burton
This set of photos is of me playing with the camera at 7 am, you get to see a white car drive by the Grauman's Theatre (OOoooo exciting)
Fast forward 9hrs (NINE LONG HOURS)
Next set of pics is from around 4pm in the afternoon, right before the sidewalk to the Grauman's Theatre
The Dark Shadow's Black Carpet gets final touches
Some Characters went all out to show up on Hollywood Blvd
We stand across the street watching the stars get out of the blacked-out SUV's, wave to us and leave for the black carpet to do their interviews with the press.
Time & Time again, no one comes over to see us. All go to press.
We scream, beg and praise and no one comes over to see us fans.
Tim Burton braves the street and comes to see us but signs 10 - 15 autographs and walks back to the black carpet to do his press interviews.
Same thing for a few more actors (I couldn't even tell who did walk to a few of the fans and sign because it was so fast and only a very few did)
Even the career autograph sellers who hung out with us for the entire day, left to go to the Kimble show to try to catch Chloe who left the premiere tape a show for a later date.
So 8pm comes and everyone in my area wants to leave but I hold out hope and ask all to wait just a bit longer.
We watch Steven Tyler & Rob Zombie play with an elder across the street and ignore our cry's.
Then off the black carpet comes a massive "Men in Black mob". In the center of this mob is the beautiful and gracious Johnny Depp. He darts to the very last person in line almost two city blocks down from me and starts ushering his security mob down the entire fan line signing autographs.
As Johnny and his security who handled this aggressive crowd who was neglected all night long, I captured these photos but the camera was knocked from my hands as he became within inches from me. Don't worry, it was strapped on my neck but the crowd was even more aggressive than Breaking Dawn at this moment due to this was their only chance to get any autographs.
(Sigh...so close.....wish I had held on to camera a bit longer)
I have to do a shout out to the "Men in Black" security here. As I am being crushed against the cage that is between Johnny & I by hundreds of pounds of humans laying on me and these humans are tossing things over my head, the security team kept the autographs that Johnny is given in order! If anyone put their photo over the top of someone else's photo, the security team moved that aggressive cheater's photo out of the way. Security did this the entire city block. They noted who was nice and made sure their stuff was noticed by Johnny and the abusers of the massive pit of humans were banished along with their items. Thanks Security! Amazing Job guys!
Thank you most of all to Johnny Depp for taking the time out to sign autographs for us all.
I wish I could have gotten more stars especially Chloe since I had several requests for her & I did get many pics of her printed for the event. (Sad)
But Johnny had me shaking at my knees for 20 mins after. How exciting and I am Very Thankful to have meet him & that I have a little piece of him to share with you all!
I am giving away three (3) Johnny Depp Autographs.
Three winners. Each winner winning an (one) Autograph.
