Unesco Gala 2010

Like last year, this year the annual Unesco Gala was being held in the Maritim Hotel in Dusseldorf, Germany. And like last year a couple of celebrities attended the Gala. So enough reason for me to attend it as well, together with Tom and Roy.

The most important guest this year for me was director Oliver Stone. The three time Academy Award winner directed a couple of classic movies like Wall Street, Platoon, JFK, Natural Born Killers and more recently Alexander. For me he signed the Oliver Stone Collection boxset, containing almost all his movies and the DVD-cover of Platoon. He was also wlling to pose for a picture...

Sienna Miller, the girlfriend of Jude Law, is mostly known due to her parts in G:I Joe (which I really liked) and Interview. The lovely actress was more then willing to pose for a picture.

Armin Mueller-Stahl', the German actor, is mostly known for his parts in international acclaimed movies like The X Files Movie, The International, The Game and recently Angels & Demons. For me signed the DVD-cover of The Thirteenth Floor and the Blu Ray-covers of Angels & Demons and The International. After that he posed for a picture...

Jackass 3D Premiere @ Amsterdam Arena

For me it was the first time I attended a premiere in the Amsterdam Arena. When I arrived a little bit late due to working commitments, I experienced a lot of people there which was not very pleasant espescially because they occupied the complete first row. So me and Tom decided to wait inside, where we met ll of them after waiting only 20 minutes...
Johnny Knoxville, creator of Jackass, is also known from his parts in Men In Black 2 and The Dukes Of Hazzard. For me he signed the DVD-cover of the second Jackass movie and he was willing to pose for a picture...luckily!
Bam Margera, also a true Jackass phenomenon. He also had a solo TV program called Viva La Bam. He also signed the DVD-cover and posed for the picture.
Director Jeff Tremaine, directed everything the Jackass guys ever did. He posed for a picture....

F.A.C.T.S. 2010

Europe's biggest annual movie-event is F.A.C.T.S in Ghent, Belgium. This event is getting bigger every year and this year thee were two big halls (So twice as big as LFCC!) filled with movie related stuff and one big hall filled with game related stuff. Among the attendees are children, autograph hunters, people who want a lot of attention, psycho's and devotees. Among these people I went up to the stars to meet them...again.

Jewel Staite, known for her starring role in Firefly and Serenity, posed for a picture with a little help from Stjepko.
Robert Picardo, known for his roles in Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1 and Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus posed for a picture woth a little help from Raphael. Billy Dee Williams, known for his parts in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Batman and Nighthawks, posed for the picture, this time wthout a wheelchair.
Noah Hathaway, known for his parts as a kid in Battlestar Galactica, Troll and The Neverending Story, posed for a picture wearing his funny hat. Luckily it wasn't a German Soccer Team Cap...

Tim Robbins @ Amsterdam

For the second time in one week I was going to try to meet Academy Award winning actor Tom Robbins, most known for movies as: The Shawshank Redemption, Mystic River and Arlington Road. Last week when I met him I wasn't able to get a picture with him because he just didn't want to do it, but instead he signed my Blu Ray cover of The Shawshank Redemption. So this time I didn't go Germany but to our capital Amsterdam instead. While walking through the citycentre, I spotted him riding a bicycle. When he stopped to smoke a cigarette I approached him to ask him for a picture with him. This time he was ok with it, and this is the result.
One of the best movies of all time...

His Academy Award winning performance...

For all the Sci-Fi geeks :-)

Tim Robbins @ Luxor Cologne

After a two weeks vacation without any celebs, it was about time that I was going to meet at least one. And so I did. Only because Tim Robbins is one of many actors who turned into singer, he came over to Cologne to perform in the Luxor Theatre, right in the middle of Cologne's ghetto, amongst dead rats and people you don't want to bump into in a dark alley...sometimes even a light alley. When the Oscar winning actor arrived at the, not zo, beautiful venue 6 collector's were waiting for him, including myself, Bart and the always present Rene. Tim decided he would sign one each and unfortunately no pictures with... :-(
For me he signed the Blu-Ray cover of The Shawshank Redemption. And as with most celebrities meet-ups Rene almost mist him but managed to get a quick autograph right before he walked in.
So, not the best experience of my life, but it was an experience after all...
