Savages Premiere w Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro, Mary Louise Parker, John Travolta and MORE! Autographs! Photos! Videos!

I was looking forward to this premiere as much as I am looking forward to seeing the movie and I hope the movie lives up to the premiere!

Once again this was a long damn day but at least I did better than at Magic Mike!

First to show up was Sandra Echeverria and me and a few friends started calling for her and she walks right on over AWAY from us, stays in one spot and never moves and then doesn't sign the rest of the night! I didn't get her.

Demian Bichir showed up next and this is by far the nicest I have ever seen him. He started at one end and went to the other end. Based on previous experiences with him this was a total shock. I got him on my cast piece.

Mary Louise Parker, who I love on the TV show Weeds, came to support Demian and just like him started at one end and went to the other. I had 3 cast pieces I am working on of Weeds and I was able to get her on all 3.

Just need Hunter and Elizabeth on this.

Emile Hirsch arrived next and after a little pleading he finally came over and I added him to my Savages cast piece and got him on The Girl Next Door which by the way I love that freakin movie! It is going to be difficult to get Elisha on it though and she is a HARD autograph to get.

AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! James Woods, who I had no idea was going to be there and a friend of mine asked me like a few days before if I could get him for him, shows up and I have nothing!!! It happens unfortunately alot but I did get the photo op and had him sign my Hollywood sign.

Jon Voight, who is just simply one of the nicest guys EVER, showed up and once again signed more than anybody and literally spent so much time signing that after multiple celebrities came and went he was still there signing.

Benicio Del Toro arrived and for the first time (but not the last time) the crowd went nuts with everyone behind me trying to basically stomp me to death to get the autograph so I was quite happy to get him on my cast shot and on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

I already had Johnny Depp on this so to me this is done!

Salma Hayek arrived which I was thankful for as she was not scheduled to be there and she started signing as Benicio was signing and she moved down the line after him and I was able to get her on my Savages cast piece and an individual.

Joel David Moore arrived and didn't sign many autographs on way in and didn't sign at all on way out but I managed to get him on my cast shot.

Blake Lively arrived and let Madness 2.0 begin! She starts towards the beginning of the line and proceeds to speed walk as she is signing, skip some people due to certain photos and even skipped my friends photo from the movie Savages. Considering all this I was able to get 2 even with a couple people around me getting none. After arrivals were over I headed to wait the customary 2 hours before departures begin and Blake left immediately and I was able to get 2 more! This alone made my night.

Taylor Kitsch showed up and did almost the whole line and I added him to my cast shot and an individual.

So that left only John Travolta left to arrive and for anyone who doesn't know he is my all-time favorite movie star. I grew up watching him in Welcome Back Kotter, Grease, Saturday Night Fever and Urban Cowboy and Pulp Fiction is my all-time favorite movie so when he arrived and waved at the crowd and DIDN'T sign I was not happy to say the least.

The way arrivals had gone I was ready to go home if he signed but since he didn't I had to wait til departures and when he finally came out he walked over and all hell broke loose. Now, Travolta is used to it getting crazy when he signs but security went nuts and pulled him away and then he came over to sign again and they pulled him away again but I still managed to get 3 which just made the night all the better!

Here is my cast piece which I ended up getting Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro, Demian Bichir, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch, Joel David Moore and John Travolta on it.
