This is another update for our readers & correction on our previous post regarding the fan meeting in Tokyo, Japan
In February, Twilight Singapore did a coverage for the Asian Twilight Premiere. Although we manage to get tickets for this year’s Fan Meeting yesterday, due to the short notice, none of us at Twilight Singapore are able to make it.
However, the AWESOME NEWS is, Twilighters Malaysia’s Nurul Naseron & Azlina Mahbob will be covering the event! So we are excited to see their coverage!
The Movie Fanatic asks Who’s Hollywood Next Golden Boys? Hop over to TMF to comment on their picks (Robert Pattinson, Shia LaBeouf, Emile Hirsch and Zac Efron) or take part in the featured poll!
This time, we’re doing a poll for Hollywood’s Next Golden Boy – Who do you think fits the bill? Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Emile Hirsch or Rob Pattinson?
Let’s have a closer look at these young actors…
So ET finally has the side-by-side picture of KStew and Joan Jett! What do you think?
Alright, so there’s more outtakes from Japan for all of you
Popsugar.com has an article on Kristen’s birthday – Sexy Robert Pattinson Helps Kristen Stewart Turns 19:
Kristen Stewart turned 19 yesterday and got a chance to let loose and celebrate with some of her New Moon castmates at Chill Winston in Vancouver last night. As usual, all eyes were on sexy Pattinson, who tried to stay under his hoodie but still stopped to sign some autographs for fans and gave a thumbs up from inside his taxi. Another Twilight man, Jackson Rathbone, was also snapped on his way in with the birthday girl.
Outtakes from EW & VMan photoshoot:
(sorry for the big blur…i dont want people to know where we were)
He was very sweet. He said “HI, I’m Taylor what’s your name?” hand shake *shiver down spine*
“Maggie, we met in Minneapolis.”
“yeah at the Hot Topic tour.”
“Oh, at the signing?”
Daddy Lautner; ” you didnt fly in from Mineapolis did you??”
“Umm, yeah i did actually.”
Both; “wow” under breath
“would you mind if i took a picture with you?”
“sure, no problem”
“Is it gonna freak you out if i pll out my GIANT camera?”
he squeezes in next to me, puts his hand on my lower back, which i copy, mmm sculpted back.
I say thank you, and give him a sideways hug while slyly inhaling his heavenly scent.
it was grand. I said a bunch more about how sweet he is but i dont remember all my blatherngs. Apparantly my brain shuts down when i meet famous people.
Robert Pattinson’s Crew Called The Brit Pack by Examiner:
Just who, says this source, is in the Brit Pack? Why, Robert Pattinson and his wily crew of course. Our favorite musicians such as Bobby Long, Marcus Foster, and Sam Bradley are on the list, as well as Tom Sturridge, who is also a long-time actor friend of Rob’s.
In a nutshell: these five are all great friends, and they’re all from the United Kingdom. Hence, the clever nickname of today, The Brit Pack.
Today we had fun and soo much excitement, and time flew by so fast [DARN IT!]. The cold day started with snow and we were worried that the weather would become worse. It stayed bad with rain instead, but the event was far from being cancelled. So Yahooo! We arrived at Ebisu Garden and took our place in the press queue.
It was c-cc-cold in the queue.
Press people busy with their set-up.
Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart’s names in Japanese.
Taylor Lautner’s name in Japanese. Me – Amongst the video camera crew.
Introduction of Twilight and the main cast.
Taylor, Kristen and Robert enters.
Taylor: Hello. I want to say thank you for having us here. I’m very excited. This is my first time to Japan and I’m loving it so far. And I would love to come back. So thanks for having us guys.
Kristen speaking in Japanese: Nihon-ni korarete totemo ureshii des. (Then she smiles! :))
[UPDATED on 28th February 2009: Translation - I am very happy I can come to Japan! *Smiles*]
Robert: Kristen has beaten me once again. Thank you to Tokyo for being so accommodating for us. I hope the film does pretty well here and I’m having a great time in Tokyo. Mina-san Arigato!
[No pictures were allowed during the Press Conference - Questions and Answers session]
However, Twilight Singapore has an exclusive video footage of it which we will post for you once its been edited.
We managed to ask one question directed to all 3 of them!
After the questions and answers session, it was time for Photo-taking!
Group hug time!
There’s just something about this photo that we really like, but we just can’t seem to put our finger on it. Might be the way that the 3 of them are looking at different directions.
* Maria here.. I am sorry this picture is not ‘balanced’. Its cos I called Robert to look at my camera and when he did I got disarmed and took this picture…HAHA I know I am a dork but if he looked at you that way – you’ve done the same. I was dazzled!!*
We love the way they seem to be laughing away here.
The press conference ends here (LOOK OUT FOR THE FULL VIDEO COVERAGE!) and it was followed by the Red Carpet Event, and subsequently, the Fan Meeting. It has been a looong day and we will be posting the latter 2 as soon as we can.
See you guys soon!
AISHAH & MARIA.
PS. We will be flying back home on the A380 aircraft – the biggest plane in the world! AND, we’re going to watch Twilight which is in the in-flight movies this month!
Here are our Day 2 events!
We arrived at the airport at 2.30pm and we walked around the terminal to check if there were any other fans who had arrived but there were no significant group who looked like they were waiting for a movie star. Rob’s flight was scheduled to arrive 3 hours later. GUESS WHAT? He travelled on our own national carrier, SINGAPORE AIRLINES from Los Angeles. HEHEE.. SO PROUD!
So we went to ‘makan’ (eat) first and then went to check our site on the internet for the latest news on anything Twilight. Then we saw the picture of him leaving Los Angeles, ie. white T-Shirt, Black Hoodie & black pants and those famous Ray Bans. So then we knew what to look out for. After that we went back to the Arrival Hall and we found more girls standing around. We approached 2 girls and said hi. We asked for who they were waiting for and they said ‘Robert Pattinson’. And we said “US TOO!” Here’s a picture of them.
The one on the left is Mayuka from Tokyo and Aki from Osaka. They’ve just met an hour before. Aki travelled 4 hours from Osaka earlier this morning and she will be staying in Tokyo till the Premiere. They made banners for Rob, which was cool. We chatted with them and we asked if they had a Japanese fansite for Twilight. But they replied that they didn’t know of any. We think that they should start one.
Later on, we finally met Tomomi from Kadokawa who directed us to the Press Pit. THANK YOU!
I was in charge of the video camera and went into the fan line, while Maria stayed in the Press Pit for the still photos.
Here is the fan situation at 4pm. Rob doesn’t arrive till about 2 hours later.
So we went to mingle with the fans and checked out what they brought…
While waiting with the fans, a local news crew came to interview us coz they found out that we came all the way from Singapore to cover the event. We don’t know when it will be coming out on TV, but we’ll keep you posted.
You can see the line slowly forming…
These girls did such a GREAT job with their banner.. I LOVE the way Edward is looking across the board at Bella. Haiz…
See anything familiar? Check out the wrist of the girl on the right. HEEES….
We later found out that some of them were waiting for Rob and others were waiting for another HUGE CELEBRITY…
Airport security personnel keeps the crowd in control…
Press getting locked and loaded…
First celebrity makes his entrance….
MR. HUGH JACKMAN!!!
Apparently, he was on the same flight as Robert after all of the Oscar parties. He is in town to promote his latest movie, Australia.
He moved down the line of awaiting fans to sign autographs and shook almost everyone’s hands including MINE!!!! [AISHAH!] HUGH JACKMAN SHOOK MY HANDS!!! I said, “Hi! I’m from Singapore.” Then Hugh answered, smiling, “Oh, hi! How are you? [He smiled wider.] I’m from Australia.” HE FRIGGIN’ REPLIED ME!!!!
*okay Maria here..have to takeover cos Aishah is hyperventilating at this moment and may have just peeed in her pants…*
And now, the MAN OF THE HOUR. *Jeng… Jeng… JENG!!!*
Robert, a great smile on his face [with a day old stubble] came out and headed straight to his Japanese fans.
He immediately started signing autographs and posed for all those cool Japanese mobile phone cameras.
See how he reaches out for them! Look at that body language!! SOO NICEEEEE!!! SOO SWEEEET!!! YOU JUST MADE US LOVE YOU MORE, ROB…
Sorry.. A bit blur here.. But you can see that he’s diving in to sign for his fans..
See that eye contact and that smile?? I’ll surely faint if he looks at me that way…
Nick pointing at the getaway exit..
Check out that mouth! (Maria just couldn’t help it)
And that’s the last photo we have of him, cause he was directed straight towards a special VIP exit. He flew by us so swiftly (Me, near to the end of the fan line and Maria who was in the Press Pit).
But seriously, despite that, it was DAMN WORTH IT! :D Don’t despair because we still have a video too! Its in its editing process and we’ll post it as soon as we can. We do apologize for the poor quality of the photos, but we hope you guys enjoy them just the same.
We want to say ‘HI!” again to the Twilighters we met at the airport. Anna, Patricia, Molly, Aki and Mayuka. See you guys in Friday at Ebisu Garden!
Okay you guys, we’re not sure exactly when Kristen is coming, but we were assured that she will be here for the Premiere. Until then, me and Maria won’t be updating about the cast because we would be sight -seeing around Tokyo, UNLESS that is we see them sight-seeing too. *CROSSING FINGERS AND TOES*
See you guys soon and keep on checking our posts on our time here in Japan!
AISHAH & MARIA.
Sorry for the late update. This post will have the contents of what we did in Day 1 at Tokyo.
We arrived yesterday at 5.30pm [Tokyo Time]. We were jet-lagged and tired. AND GUESS WHAT??!!!
We saw TAYLOR LAUTNER!!!! We were filling up our address for our stay in Tokyo and when we turned around, Maria thought the boy in front of us looked familiar. “Isn’t that Taylor?”, Maria asked. And for sure yes, it was definitely Mr. Lautner himself. He is tall and was wearing a black leather jacket with black jeans. He was much more fairer than we expected. His hair was like those pictures from VF.
He was queuing at the immigration line together with some people. [We later found out it was a representative from Summit and we think the other was his Dad.] Maria went up to him and this how the conversation went.
Maria: “Hi, Taylor.”
Taylor turns and looks at us. He smiles. He has the MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE EVER with lovely teeth. Haiz…
Maria continues. “Welcome to Japan! I thought you were coming tomorrow?”
Taylor answered. “No… Not tomorrow.”
There were more words that Maria said but we can’t remember them. [SORRY] Those were the only words that we heard from him. After that we joined the immigration line. So Taylor was in front of us with the people that were queuing in between us. Since it was an immigration line, the queue was looong. The line went zig-zagged. So we managed to pass by him about 5 times. Every time we passed him he either looked up or he was talking to his dad. We felt very awkward and ‘paiseh‘ (embarrassed).. HEEESS..
We didn’t manage to take photos with him or ask for an autograph because we did not want to draw attention to him. And we think that its not allowed in the immigration line. Good thing we maintained professionalism as it took a lot of will power to suppress ‘THE FAN GIRL’ in us. HAHA.
From there, we went through the immigration checks and we saw people who were receiving Taylor and his party. They helped him with his luggage and all. We collected our luggage and went down to catch an Airport Limousine (which is actually a bus) to meet our friend in town who has kindly accomodated us during this trip. The journey took about 2 hours.
We headed to Roppongi Hills to meet our friend, Evelyn, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. While waiting in the lobby… YOU GUYS KNOW WHO WE SAW??!!!
No.. not Leo… And not Matt either. HEHEHE…. Its the guy in the middle. That’s the Oscar-winning legendary director, Mr. Martin Scorsese! He has directed Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Gangs of New York, The Aviator and most recently The Departed.
Me and Maria were sitting around in the lobby (by the way, the lobby was DAMN NICE..) when Maria noticed him. “Isn’t that Martin Scorsese?” Mr. Scorsese was wearing a black overcoat and he was shaking hands with a couple of people who were waiting for him at the lobby. Then he walked towards the taxi stand where a limo was waiting for him. He walked past us and we waved while Maria said “Hello!” to him. He smiled and he waved back at us too! It was a brief encounter and we didn’t want to bother him so we did not take a photo, but it was well-worth it since he noticed us.
Thing is, I’ve realized I have managed to see more Hollywood stars right here in Tokyo than the other times that I have been to America. ITS PRETTY EXCITING!!!
Tune in back to this site in a couple of hours as we blog about our second day: THE ARRIVAL OF MR. PATTINSON.
AISHAH & MARIA.
