EPIC - I meet Channing Tatum

Tonight I met Channing Tatum! Finally!

At the 21 Jump Street Premiere he came across the street to greet fans. (As did many other stars but that is a different pst - later)

When I saw him I was shaking with excitement. As he crossed the street I felt giddy inside. I kept hoping he would keep going down the line to where we were.

When he got to me we took a photo then I said I had come from Canada and had been hoping to meet him for a long time. I told him I had planned to go to see him in NYC for SNL but didn't make it. He said thanks and asked my name... I told him Mandy, he said "thank you do much Mandy" and grabbed my hand... held it.. smiled.. omg... I died. T

hen as he moved on to the next person I said I hoped to get an autograph Thursday at Kimmel and he paused (probably confused thinking I meant he forgot to sign for me just then, then realizing I had nothing to sign and processing what I actually meant, which was I would bring something Thursday... at least hopefully that is what went through his brain and not LMAO)

He was so nice!

The security was nice also. When we were packing up to leave he told me and the people I was sitting with (Who are regulars) to hold on. He then checked about tickets for us - no go, it was full... so sweet of him though!

Then he toldf me where I could go to see them at the after party, which was Rolling Stone just around the corner. I came back to rest and drop off some stuff then went back out to have dinner with my new German friends.

After eating we went by Rolling Stone and autograph hounds were there. They were fairly friendly but I knew that would change as more showed up and the dominated the barricade. I asked a security if we should go to the other side or what and he said he would if he were me. I agreed.

The hounds got mad I moved "splitting the celebs attention" but the security stood up for me and said "she can go where she wants"

THEN the security guard told publicists as they arrived which side were the "real fans" and they came to us first :)

Got Channing again, got his beautiful wife Jenna (yes I still am jealous of her but she was so sweet, chatted a bit with me too!) and I also go Jonah Hill. I got so many celeb photos coming and going from that after party - I will do a post with all the people at the premiere and party but right now - it is allll about Chan - the man!

So then after what felt like a very short time, celebs were leaving and Channing came over again - I didn't ask for another photo as new fans arrived and I had him twice - but i did talk to him again and Jenna and my Germany friends got pics with them this time :)

Channing gave Jenna his jacket - so friggin' sweet


Need sleep - Hunger Games premiere, 21 jump street premiere and more tomorrow after Jay Leno show (with Channing tee hee)

SO HAPPY FOR YOU MEETING CT!!! Let me know what you think of 21 JS. I loved it growing up. Looks totally different now, though!
