Guardians of the Galaxy World Premiere
*I attended as a guest of Disney and am very grateful for the opportunity to do so.*
It has happened. This past week I attended my first red carpet event. Living in Southern California, not too far away from where all the action takes place in Hollywood, it is pretty commonplace to drive down Hollywood Boulevard and see another World Premiere getting ready to happen. I’m not a starstuck kind of girl, and I don’t get all freaked out and crazy like some do when there is a movie star sighting. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are super exciting, even more so now that I have actually been to one, but I am pretty grounded, so actually going to a red carpet world premiere event for a movie always seemed so far fetched and unattainable to me. Me attending the World Premiere as a guest for any movie, let alone a big production like Guardians of the Galaxy; and not just there in attendance as a fan on the other side of the fence? Yeah right. I must be dreaming. But nope. It actually happened and here’s the evidence! 😉
Marvel fans lined the streets of Hollywood Boulevard on this warm summers evening. The red carpet was rolled out for some of the biggest stars in Hollywood for the World Premiere of the Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
We watched from just feet away on the same red carpet as the stars as they walked by and were mingling with one another and being interviewed by various reporters. It was a lot to take in at once and I wanted to enjoy every second of the experience and catch whatever special moments that I could.
Director James Gunn with Wyatt Oleff, the young Petter Quill aka Star-Lord in the film. Sharing a very precious moment together on the red carpet.
Bradley Cooper walking down the red carpet, taking selfies with everyone who had a cell phone and signing autographs.
Bradley Cooper taking selfies with his adoring fans. This was a very special red carpet moment for me. I caught this picture on the left of him talking another of his many selfies. I had posted this on instagram and after looking at it for awhile, it made me wonder what DOES the picture of the selfie look like that I captured him taking? After looking for it myself on instagram under some of the hashtags of the film, I was about to give up. Then I received a comment on my picture from the girl with the peace sign saying THATS MEEEEEE!!!! Sure enough I clicked over to her profile and there this gem on the right was! How neat was that, to actually find that picture? The power of social media truly is endless. 😉
I had to stop and take a picture with my date, Captain America… 😉
More red carpet adventures! Almost to the theater!
Walking the Red Carpet up to the famous Dolby Theater! Still in awe of being on this side of the red carpet. So surreal.
We made it! Time to go watch the World Premiere of the Guardians of the Galaxy!
After the movie I just had to take a picture with my dear friend Kathy over at On the Scene With Mrs. Kathy King. She is my Disney buddy and we have had many firsts this year together with all of the Disney Movies, including this experience! I hope we get to have many more together too. =) <3
Stay tuned for my review and more fun info on the Guardians of the Galaxy a little bit later today!
