TUT - My Premiere Pics

Recommended Posts

Moira, what are you yelling at him?

Did he answer? Did you get to speak to him?

I'm not aware I was yelling as I was not wanting anything signed I was just taking pics and no I did not speak to him.

I'm just wondering about a PM that I received this morning... It wasn't quite such an exciting moment for her! When it comes to a fan frenzy....I guess like a few others I'm glad I wasn't there! But to all that managed to get where they wanted to get ...Congratulations!

Frannie

I got a call last night from one of the ladies that got to attend and was up front and she said the same thing. While she was dazed that she got to meet him, it was marred by a few things. I mirror Frannie in that, Congratulations to all who got to meet him, hope there are no lasting bruises! :stars::bonk::lmao:

OMG!! Lisa doesn't even know that it's up?? :lmao: She's gonna die when she finds out!

Moira, isn't that you right next to Lisa?? You look like you were having a blast and got caught up in the excitement! Well done!

Morning ladies ... I jumped on Moira's laptop after Brenda called me up here to see the picture. Here's my story of what happened ...

Yes, I got to hug him and kiss him on the cheek (he kissed my cheek first - it was a beautiful moment for me, and the details will stay with me). That picture is me wiping my lipstick off his face cause it felt weird to see it. I would NEVER pinch his cheek. In fact, what you don't see is my telling him it was there, him making a funny face at me and then he LET ME wipe it off. :lol: The look on my face is concentration on my part to make sure it came off. I have seen in some of Brenda's pictures that it did not come all the way off. EEK

As for the pushing and shoving, it was a very, very small area, and I really wanted Brenda to have a chance to see him for the first time so I was a little protective of her. The Arc Light and Sony handled things very poorly, and I will never attend another premiere for a Sony movie again. Also, there were other fans there for another actor and they did a lot of the pushing and shoving so they could see their guy.

As for us GALS, we were courteous and protective of each other. It felt awful when Merle got sick, but after she felt better she was rewarded with a great hug and chat with Gerry beyond the barricade so I'm sure on some level it was "worth it" for her. But she collapsed because we were facing the sun for 2 hours and she was dehydrated. It was so bloody hot and miserable, but luckily by the time Gerry came to us the sun had gone behind the buildings and he didn't have to deal with it. :)

Yes, I'm still on :cloud9: and will be there for quite a while. I am completely happy; Gerry was nothing but wonderful and generous, as always. I love him completly and wholly, and he has my total devotion for life.

PS: I just noticed I had a hold of his other arm! OMG I didn't even realize I had done that. Yikes ... it sure does look like I'm manhandling him. But all I was doing was reaching to him. Remember, I'm only 5 foot tall and he's so much taller than I am. I guess I used his other arm as leverage.

Ladies, can we please not discuss PMs when most of us have no idea what you are talking about? It kind of puts a negative spin on things, and now I'm left wondering what the heck happened.

So our lovely Gerry made a point to talk to Merle! I bet she is over the moon! What a sweet guy.

Lisa,

I can imagine that it was tiring and nerve-wrecking but who cares, right? :lol:

The main thing is that you got to meet and kiss him and touch his face. It must have felt so intimate and personal. The other details don't matter.

I know you wouldn't pinch his cheek Lisa. I was kidding. Some crazy woman pinched his cheek at the RNR premier we were at and he didn't like it at all. I'm so happy that you had the moment with him that you've always wanted.

Yes it was me but I was behind Lisa and Brenda I can only think I was shouting at people to stop pushing because we were being pushed further and further forward and those at the front were getting pushed right into the barrier.

I am so thrilled for those of you who were there. Also that the GALS took care of each other. It's very sad that anyone got "pushed to the back" as Frannie mentioned. I hope it wasn't one of the first timers. I know when Elissa went to the R&R Premier, it was her first time to see Gerry and the local girls, especially Susan, made sure she got settled right in front. The funny thing is that no matter how often you get to see Gerry, no one gets blase' about it. You just want to see him more. I hope I get the chance to do that one of these days!

I'm sad I didn't get to join you this time around, but frankly, I don't think I would have lasted in that heat!

I was wondering the same thing....Has anyone heard from Merle yet?? Hope she's okay ....

I don't know how you guys saw Barbara (Lugerry) in that crowd...I certainly can't find her!! I know she was there but don't know where??!

Lisa, nice to see your feet are back down on the ground...or are they? :unsure::cloud9:

Haven't heard from Deb or Ren yet today .....maybe their feet haven't touched the ground yet! :cunning:

Suz....I'm kinda glad you weren't there Hunny...As little as you are there wouldn't be much left to you in that crowd! :p

Well I just hope all that went had a great time even if they didn't get the chance to see Gerry up close..at least you got a little vacation away from everyday trials and tribulations..I would give my right arm for just that much! Well maybe my left one...I'm right handed! :doh:

:wave: Frannie

Swannie, I'm going to PM you! :)

The one that looks like it could be lugerry is directly behind Lisa and to the left of the white sleeve. You can only see part of her face, it is upturned, but it looks like it could be lugerry, and is the right height. If it is she was standing to Moira's left so perhaps she can confirm or not.

I thought I would chime in here a minute and let you know, Deb and I traveled home today and couldn't post. Deb has her computer here and will be coming back. She had to go pick her daughter up. I was close to Deb at the barricade at the Premiere. We saw him up close. I was taking pictures while Deb was up in front at the far end. I will let her tell her story when she gets here this evening.

I just wanted to say, GALS did a great job. The real problem came in 2 ways: 1. Sony and Arclight changed how they were going to use barriers and 2. some of Katherine's and one of the other male actor's fans came late in the day. They pushed their way up to near the front.

Also, we had a couple of young guys, said they were Gerry fans. They pushed their way up and in front of a sweet elderly man named Jeff, on a scooter. We asked them nicely to back off, but come to find out, the last minute, they pulled notebooks with pictures, (they were razzis) and pushed hard. Luckily for the man, he and his wife were escorted to a shady safe place. Gerry did get to spend a moment with the Jeff which made it all worthwhile. He was a very sweet man. I hope we see him and his lovely wife again in the future.

I think the barrier change was made to get Gerry into the movie sooner. The barricade really limited how many could be up front. I had been there all day and when the space became crowded, I get a wee bit claustrophobic, and had backed off (didn't want to fight the crowd) to stand on a ledge to take pictures. Ren, Moira, Sparty, Chris, Deb, Hidden Warrior and GB young one, Lemon drop, and a couple others, all called me to come up front. Thank you guys! They knew I had been there from the beginning and they worked together, reached for my hand and pulled me through the crowd of razzes. We do take care of each other. I will be adding the pictures soon.

GALS makes me proud once again.

Being the klutz that I am, I dropped the lid off Deb's water bottle and it fell to the ground. We were so packed, like sardines, that I had to carefully squat to reach the lid. I told the sweet girl in front of me what I was doing. My face ended up in her a**. LOL I carefully raised back up and apologized for ravaging her body. That's how packed we were.

We didn't get to see the movie, but the red carpet experience was fun. As soon as Gerry showed up, all the discomforts and inconveniences were forgotten. All eyes were on "The Man". I met so many very nice women including some from another site. They were very interested in GALS and said they would come on in. I showed some of them Dayna's prayer on Gerry. Everyone loved it.

Now, I know what Gerry meant when he says he has some intense meetings with fans. It's like...

Gerry Butler Juice and Pie

Kiss the girls and made them cry....it can be very intense, indeed. What a delight, this man, called Gerry.

*Just a little promo for Gerry's restaurant called Shin, our group went and had dinner there last night. I had never had Korean BBQ before. The food was very delicious. If you are ever in Hollywood, you might try it sometime. They make a great kimchi?

Love you guys,

Sally

Sal, was he even more beautiful in person, cause seriously...these are the most gorgeous photos I have seen of him in months!

Was Jeff from Oregon? Just curious. I know of an elderly couple from Oregon who are fans, and his name is Jeff.

I'm so glad you and Deb were there! I can't wait to hear Deb's story!
