There are those people that are so famous and so respected that you'd think you would never meet. Like, ever! It's almost as if you feel you're unworthy to be in their presence! However, when "A Wrinkle In Time" premiered, I went to the red carpet premiere and actually met some of those legends myself.
Who are these legends I speak of, you ask? None other than Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon. The latter is an absolute giant, one of the most powerful women in the world. While the latter is an Academy Award-winning actress who's all types of iconic. For the first time ever, Disney's "A Wrinkle In Time" got these incredible legends to star in one movie together. And as goddesses, no less! So of course I just had to go to its premiere to see them both! Who knows when an opportunity like this will ever happen again?
Held at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles, the star-studded cast of "A Wrinkle In Time" attended the red carpet premiere. Even more movie icons went to the event as well, such as Tracee Ellis-Ross and Angela Basset, among many others. And while they were incredible themselves, I was only really there to get the cast's autographs. I had my movie posters ready and waited for them to arrive! The first one I got to was Chris Pine. Damn, that man is handsome! And so charming too! When he signed my posters, all I could think of was how in the world he's not bigger than he already is!?
After Pine was the legendary Reese Witherspoon. So beautiful and fresh, it's like she's a vampire or something! I grew up watching her in movies like "Legally Blonde" and "Cruel Intentions" which came out decades ago! But goodness gracious! She still looks the same! While she was signing my posters, I examined her face more closely (I know, stalker, right? Lol!) and I couldn't tell if she got her face done or anything. It's either her plastic surgeon was really that good or she's really a vampire! Either way, she's stunning in person! And so nice too!
The kids in the movie—Storm Reid, Deric McCabe, and Rowan Blanchard—were all so adorable. They didn't even seem fazed by all the fanfare. I personally didn't know them before this movie so I didn't know if they were already famous beforehand or not. Still, kudos to them for being all calm and collected as legions of fans, as well as photographs screamed at them. They were also cool enough to give me their autographs too! So cute!
And finally, although I got more cast members to sign my posters, when I met Oprah Winfrey in person, I instantly forgot the rest! Right in front of me was this iconic powerhouse that helped change the world. Even though I asked for her autograph, I felt like I was in front of a queen or something! Well, I really was, no doubt! And though she had an air about her, she didn't seem fake and was so down-to-earth and personable. She was generous with her autographs and even smiled at me! It was amazing! Definitely one of the most unforgettable moments of my life!
To this day, I still go back to that time when I met a couple of show biz legends! I'm hoping I'll get another opportunity like that soon! I miss it!
