Celebrities @ Bafta Afterparty

This year the afterparty of the Bafta's was particulary bad. French collectors had no decency at all and harassed the celebrities which made it almost impossible to meet some good celebrities. The security put up some barriers and it will probably be my last time, because it is probably ruined forever now...
Luckily I was able to meet a few celebrities.

Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs, The Incredible Hulk, Lie To Me, Rob Roy)
Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Silent House, Oldboy)
Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises, Killer Joe, The Three Musketeers, Kaboom)
Sally Field (Lincoln, Mrs. Doubtfire, Forrest Gump, Not Without My Daughter)
Amy Adams (Man Of Steel, The Fighter, The Master, Doubt)
Alan Parker (Mississippi Burning, Midnight Express, Angel Heart)
Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Cloud Atlas, Perfume, I'm Not There)
Tom Hooper (Les Miserables, The King's Speech, John Adams)
Olga Kurylenko (Quantum Of Solace, Seven Psychopaths, Oblivion)
Mark Strong (Robin Hood, Shelock Holmes, Zero Dark Thirty, Kick Ass)
Matthias Schoenaerts (Rundskop, Rust & Bone, The Loft)
Simon Pegg (Star Trek, Tintin, Hot Fuzz, Shaun Of The Dead)
David Morrissey (The Walking Dead, Centurion, Basic Instinct 2, The Reaping)
Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, The Three Musketeers, The Hobbit 2 & 3, Immortals)
Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion, W.E., Brighton Rock, Shadow Dancer)
Dexter Fletcher (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Layer Cake, Wild Bill) 

Celebrities @ Claridges Hotel

When I waited at Claridges hotel I was able to meet two very nice people.

Academy Award winning director/actor Ben Affleck (Pearl Harbor, Argo, The Town, Daredevil) was happy enough to pose for a photo when he departed his hotel.
His wife Jennifer Garner is finally done looking for Rambaldi artifacts because her TV-show Alias ended a few years ago. I always loved watching that series. She is also known for movies like Daredevil, Elektra, The Kingdom and Pearl Harbor. When she departed her hotel she was also willing to pose for a photo.

Celebrities @ Covent Garden Hotel

The Covent Garden hotel in London was a good hotel this time around. Here I was able to meet one the best actors of the world. 

Two (soon to be three) times Academy Award winner Daniel Day Lewis signed my DVD-covers of The Last Of The Mohicans and There Will Be Blood and he posed for a picture, which actually made my trip already a succes! 
Two times Academy Award winning actress Sally Field signed my poster of The Amazing Spiderman as well as my DVD-coverof Mrs. Doubtfire. Luckily for me, she was also willing to pose for a picture.
Four times Academy Award nominated actress Amy Adams signed my posters of Man Of Steel and On The Road. She was also willing to pose for a photo, wearing the same sunglasses as two years before.
Ow... and I almost forgot to mention that Hugh Laurie signed my poster of House, but unfortunately he was unwilling to pose for a photo.

Celebrities @ Soho Hotel

When I was in London I waited at the Soho Hotel. It's usually not a bad hotel to meet some celebrities. This time there wasn't much action. But I was able to meet some celebrities at the Soho Hotel. The absolute best one to meet was Joaquin Phoenix for sure. The actor (Gladiator) was really nice, despite his reputatio of being an asshole. He was not willing to pose for a photo but did sign my DVD-cover of Gladiator.

Tom Hardy is now mostly known as Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. At the moment he is busy remaking Mad Max in the title role. Other than that he is also known for Inception, Warrior, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and This Means War. When he departed the Soho Hotel he signed my poster of Tinker Tailor Soldier spy and posed for a photo.
John Hannah is mostly known for his parts in Spartacus and The Mummy. When he departed the hotel he was also willing to pose fo a photo.
American comedian Sarah Silveman was in town to promote her voice work for the movie Wreck It Ralph. Other than that she is known for movies like There's Something About Mary and School Of Rock which in both she played supprting roles. She posed for a picture when she arrived at the hotel.

A Good Day To Die Hard UK Premiere @ Empire Theatre

I went to London for the UK premiere of the fifth Die Hard movie; A Good Day To Die Hard. Unfortunately  it rained all day and Bruce Willis wasn't in a good mood. He didn't do anything at the red carpet. Luckily I was able to meet rising star Jai Courtney (Spartacus, Jack Reacher).

Jai Courtney signed my poster of A Good Day To Die Hard ans posed for a photo.
