Hey this is Gina Ferraro! I’m so thrilled because I got chat with actor Robert Downey Jr., and director Todd Phillips. You’ve probably see some of Phillip’s films: The Hangover, and Old School to mention a few.
The boys were in town because The Gene Siskel Film Center paid tribute to actor Robert Downey Jr., presenting him with the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Award.
You never know what you’re going to get when you meet a new celebrity– let alone TWO coming down the Red Carpet together like Robert and Todd did. BUT! I’m happy to say to they were both a lot of fun. I still haven’t seen Iron Man, but after meeting Downey I’ve gotta check it out.
As for Phillip’s films, they are some of my favs. If you haven’t seen them I totally suggest watching them if you want a good laugh.
Look out for the Downey’s new film directed by Phillips called, “Due Date.” It should be out this fall/winter and also stars the hilarious Zach Galifianakis.
