Red Carpet conjures up images of glamour and star power. Out & About with Kids were invited to be part of the Media scrum this week and we weren’t disappointed on either count. Taking along 3 x 15 year old junior Journalists, Coco, Lulu and Tori for their first taste of Red Carpet action was more fun and more jaw dropping than we’d hoped for.
Our first event was the Australian Premiere of the PG movie Zookeeper at Westfield Bondi, co-written and produced by and starring the cute and gifted American comedian Kevin James. In a whirl of flashbulbs and fans wanting autographs, the girls were thrilled to be up and close to Australian first nighters including Morning Show, Kylie Gillies with her husband and two too cute for words sons, Glenn McGrath and his wife Sara, with children Holly and James, and the ever smiling and lovely Amanda Keller with family happily in tow.
Then the real star power of the show arrived in flash of Light bulbs and hustle of minders, lenses and boom mikes straining, enter Kevin James. Sassy and generous with his time to all waiting Media, including our 3 star struck girls.
Tori got to ask her prepped question, (see this and the photos from the event on FB and our site) and Coco took copious notes whilst Lulu filmed. What a thrill. Kevin made his way along smiling, chatting to all his waiting fans. Not just talented but an all around good guy.
To top of an amazing afternoon we got to see the Movie itself. So funny and so perfectly palatable PG. Cute animals, enough slapstick to keep everyone laughing, and a happy ending of course. Sony Pictures Releasing created an amazing event with free popcorn and drinks, nothing was left out.
Are we all star struck now? You bet! Can’t wait for the next Red Carpet. Stay tuned.
