I'm so flailing. Because I touched Al Pacino and ALMOST touched Robert De Niro.  
And no, I'm not talking bullshit. I've just had the best turn of luck, like, ever. No, seriously.


So, I was around a central zone because I wanted to see a movie from the Venice in Rome thing and after I get my ticket, I go and have a walk. I end up in front of this big other cinema where they usually have premieres and I see that it's all covered in Righteous Kill posters. So I go and ask one guy working there, 'is here a premiere today?' and he's like 'sure there is', and I say 'wait a minute, is either of them showing up?', and he's like 'why, both of them are showing up'.

And since no one was there, I go on the barrier and stick there with extra strong glue.

Mind that I'm currently PMSing and that the weather was more cold than chilly but whatever. I wait three hours, the usual red carpet stuff happens and then I notice that a cameraman has a Dharma t-shirt. If he wasn't too far away I'd have tried to discuss Lost with him if only because of the boredom and because they kept playing Symphathy for the Devil for two freaking hours, but however. I'll just won't listen to it for the next year.

So at eight and something this car arrives and they get out of it and Robert De Niro (which looks GREAT by the way) went the other way while Al Pacino came our way and omgwtfyes.

He's just... *dies* he was all dressed in black, smiled at everyone, touched people, signed everything they gave him and talked to someone though I was too dazed to get what he was saying. Then he comes in front of me and he signs the two receipts of one deposit I made at the postal service and that were the only piece of blank paper (at least on one side) that I had and while he signed for the one next to me I went and sort of half-shook his hand in the sense that I only touched the surface (they were both of our left hands so uhm, awkward I guess). And then he went forward and I half saw De Niro going our way but then he turned back at the center of the row while I was in the right side, so no signature. But he waved at us and smiled at us and was lovely overall so forgiven, since I had Al's signature already. Then they went together near the stairs, Al started throwing kisses in our direction and then... well, he came straight and hugged the guy next to me who was a complete fanboy and did get himself noticed.

And not the pat on the back hug, he really hugged him like, REALLY hugged him.

At that point I sort of threw my arm around his shoulder before the security split them and the fanboy half fainted, but freaking hell, I touched Al Pacino TWO times. Now that's called an accomplishment.

And then I ran and managed also to catch the movie I was there for to begin with. Fuck. I'm not washing my hand for a freaking fucking while.

And now some pics even if they, uhm, suck. Sorry but with a cellphone and a shaking hand you do what you can, especially when Al Pacino is coming your way.

^ this would be the Dharma recruit cameraman. I apologize but he was way too far to get a decent resolution, though I think you can recognize the thing.

This is supposed to be Mr. Pacino coming my way...

^ that's the best coming out.

And these are my receipts ♥:

And now I'll flail some more. *squee*

feeling: ecstaticecstatic
on rotation: none, I'm still shaken out

Yeah it is! And considering that I bumped into the barrier practically by chance, I really was this round!

Oh my god! That's amazing! There are just no words for how amazing that must have been. I don't blame the guy who almost fainted. I probably would have too.
the female ghost of tom joad: omgjanie_tangerine on September 16th, 2008 10:46 pm (UTC)
That so is! God, I can't still believe I ended up in there. But it definitely was and that guy, God. He kept on being a total fangirl for three hours on line and did he get rewarded! I'm sure he fell at least backwards but woah, I was fainting and I had barely touched the guy's shoulder. Yes, I'm totally still high on that.

oh man that is fucking AWESOME!!!
i might have just cried if i was breathing the same air as robert de niro :p
and even better how they both sound like sweet hearts ^.^
the female ghost of tom joad: omgjanie_tangerine on September 16th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, they do seem sweethearts indeed! Mr. Pacino is for sure, I'd say I'd have loved it if the other one came on my side too but well, I surely can't complain ;)
Zelda: Zzelda_zee on September 16th, 2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's so cool! What great timing you had. I'm glad both of them were being so nice, that's good to hear.

That was indeed some timing, I couldn't have gotten luckier if I had asked for it specifically *is still incredulous*. And they are really so nice, the hug thing was a surprise but I'm sure the fanboy won't ever complain about that ;)

Oh wow, totally AWESOME! Yay for you, and how nice to hear that Al was so cool to hug not a fangirl, but a fanboy! Woo! ♥

Isn't it just? I'm still flying high on that. And he really was the nicest person, the fanboy surely will have fond memories for the next five hundred years at least ;)

I heart you, I HEART YOU...little known fact about me, when I was a kid he was here in town and I wrote him a fan letter..no idea if my mother ever mailed it--I doubt it, I was like 7, but still, he was the first and only one of two people i ever did that for..the other one, Adam Clayton when I was like 16.

YEEEEESSS. Probably my favorite role of his if I had to choose just one movie *sigh* I mean, I always love him anyway but THAT movie is just too good. *hearts you too*

And I'd say two worthy people, I love Adam Clayton by the way ;)
