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.
