A Wonderful Day
Yesterday was a big day with weeks in planning. My girlfriends and I had VIP tickets to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to see my #1, Gerard Butler. Gerard was a hoot as usual. He waved at us several times, he couldn't miss us, we took up a whole row at the center above John Melendez.
Watch Gerard Butler on Jay Leno:
Attending the Jay Leno Show is usually enough for one day, but we also had tickets to the Premiere of RocknRolla at the Cinerama Dome! We were concerned we would be able to make it from Burbank to Hollywood at 5:00 p.m. on a Monday afternoon during the height of traffic, but one of the girls, Annette came up with a brilliant idea, why not hire a driver? Annette's idea worked perfectly, Jamie, our driver, delievered us at the Cinerama Dome by 5:35 p.m.!
We settled into our seats and waited for the movie to start. A few of us went to the lobby to go to the restroom and we could see Idris Elba and Gerard through the windows (the entire front of the theater are windows) working the red carpet and then we saw Tom Hardy come into the lobby after finishing with his red carpet duties. We stayed as long as we could, but then the ushers began clearing the lobby to go to our seats. Shortly after we were back in our seats the movie began. The movie was great in that theater, large screen and terrific sound system.
After the movie was over we went to the lobby, it was very crowded. One of the girls, Lynnette said, "He just went outside." I was a little ahead of her so I made my way outside and there was Gerard at the side walk with Allen, his manager, and Joy, his handler. People were greeting and hugging him. I waited for him to be free and then he autographed my picture my friend Marcy had taken of him at Comic Con.
It was a wonderful day with all things Gerard and my girlfriends.
