It’s TRUE, we are stars — My mom even said so.
And now that the stupid-film-festival-I-always-forget-how-much-I-hate-until-it-gets-here is finally

No, I swear, I AM Ben Affleck, see? I just want to buy some coconut water from that shop... no? Okay, cool. Mr. Redford can keep the shop, I don't even care.
TIFF doesn’t come without its fun (see: all of the parties) but if you had to bicycle straight through Lightbox land on your way to and from work for 10 days straight, you’d get it. You couldn’t miss it.

SAYS WHO? MAYOR SUSAN SARANDON? WADDAHEY?!?

For now though…
