Ok, so when it comes to movies, I’m more of a romantic comedy kind of girl. Yah, some may be cheesy and predictable but at the end of the day I like how they give you that ‘feel good’ boost. If it’s an action flick then it has to have a captivating story line to really draw me in or keep my attention. I’m not going to sit and watch cars crashing, buildings blowing up and people bashing each other up for no reason…..just not my thing. But then….there’s X-Men! That’s a WHOOOOLE other story! Ok ok, so I’ll admit the main reason I was even interested in the movie in the first place was probably because of Hugh Jackman, who I first watched in Swordfish. I watched the first of the X-Men series without much expectation, especially since I was never really into comics and had no idea about the storyline, but once I watched it, I was hooked! And Hugh Jackman bursting through his singlet throughout the entire movie, if not topless, may or may not have helped. Haha! Ladies…you know what I’m talking about! 😛
So not only have I been a HUGE fan of Hugh Jackman for the longest time, but I’ve also been a fan of the X-Men franchise since it first came out. So when I, along with a selected few other regional celebrities got the invite to the Southeast Asia gala premiere of the latest X-men blockbuster in Singapore, I was ecstatic!! Not only were we to watch the exclusive screening of the movie before the rest of the world, but we were to walk the very same ‘blue carpet’ that the cast would walk on. AHHHH!!! To top that off we were invited into the VIP area in which the cast including, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage and Fan Bing Bing were to join to share a few words before the actual screening. O!M!G!….to say the least!
The screening was held at the Shaw House and all of outside and inside was packed up the wazoo with fans. Yah, we all knew they were there for the Hollywood stars, but the fans were so nice to show us some love as well as we walked down the blue carpet into the theatre. So here’s me sending huge hugs and kisses to you all!! 🙂
Yet again, the amazing folks from Running Into The Sun did an awesome job in organising the entire gala event. BIG big thank you to each and everyone from the team for the invite and making my dream come true….I got to be in the same room as Hugh Jackman!!! Waaaah!! And of course it goes without saying, a gynormous thank you to my managers at Fly Entertainment for taking such good care of us during the event! Mmmmuacks! 🙂
Oh! One other thing….I finally got to wear my adorable botanical romper from Finder’s Keepers, which I picked up recently on my trip to Tokyo. ❤ Here’s a quick snippet of the event. **sorry for the quality guys, its the best I could do 😦
Watch out for X-Men Days Of Future Past in Cinemas May 22!!
