The stars do run in Run Fat Boy Run

This past Monday was a complete blur for me and the other photog as the celebrities seemed to literally run through the carpet at the Los Angeles Premiere of "Run Fat Boy Run." The movie is about acharming but oblivious overweight guy who leaves his fiancee on their wedding day only to discover years later that he really loves her. To win her back, he must finish a marathon while making her realize that her new handsome, wealthy fiance is the wrong guy for her. The movie stars Simon Pegg, Thandie Newton and Hank Azaria. Directed by David Schwimmer and written by Michael Ian Black.

Back to the carpet - Amanda Bynes was about to walk to the side of the carpet along with the general public when we spotted her trying to sneak into the movie theater. She didn't walk fast enough because we started calling out to her to walk the carpet boy was she booed when she kept walking, but once the boos got louder she came back to appease the photogs.

Not so with Diablo Cody, has she gotten to big for her stripper pole? Apparently, she was sneaking in also and the boos didn't detract her from ignoring the red carpet photogs. Well Miss Cody, looks like the red carpet photogs now have you on their list of least workable celebrity to shoot on the carpet. One photog blurted out, "Go back to your stripper pole!" Oh wow! That was bad!!!

As for the rest of the celebs, Miss Thandie Newton was a joy to shoot as you can see I got a full on eye contact with the beauty and my lens.

Simon Pegg seemed a bit surprised like it was his first premiere. I'm sure he's done more. Must be the flashing lights.

David Schwimmer took a quick stroll but I think another photog scared him away with her shouting that she didn't get the shot. As you can see in this photo, he even pointed in the photog's direction.

Oh my fav of the night was comedian Russell Peters. He even joked about me saying something to the effect "Hello my Filipino Pare, Kumusta Ka?" I was floored and laughed a bit and gave him a hang loose sign.

Any who, until next time, "Over The Shoulder to Nim's Island!"
