Kung Fu Panda DVD Premiere

On early Sunday morning, I attended the red carpet for the release of Kung Fu Panda on DVD and the screening of its special 24 minute bonus film, Secrets of the Furious Five. Both animated films featured the voices of Jack Black (Po), Dustin Hoffman (Shifu), and Angelina Jolie (Tigress), all of which were in attendance at the red carpet at Mann's Chinese Theater (where the Igor premiere was).

I didn't get to do any one-on-one interviews this time, but I was right up close to the action, snagged some video and some great shots too. Jack Black was just as I expected/hoped he'd be, cheerful, signing autographs for his fans and haming it up as he stopped to speak with each reporter. Angelina came without her brew of kids or Brad, unless they went right into the theater, but I didn't hear any word of that. She wore a black dress, tan pumps and looked very glamourous and very skinny. Although I wasn't speaking to her she did look at me twice. Dustin Hoffman, wasn't as short as I thought he'd be, don't know why I thought that, but he looked quite nice and trim. Take a look for yourself:


  1. love love love it all. i am so jealous (as always) of the whole event. the pics and the video are great :)

  2. So how do you score these gigs? Weber stuff? If so, much MUCH more exciting than traffic! ;)

  3. Love the video. Lucky you to get to talk to Jack Black. He was certainly friendly!!

  4. I just watched Angelina's other movie Change Link and it was very heavy - amazing perfomances - but very sad.

  5. Very cool Tara! Jack Black seems like a really cool guy. How did Angelina Jolie seem?

    Thanks for posting :-)

  6. Hi Tara, like many others, I enjoy your blog. While I have not made it to the first chapter (reverse reading) I wonder how you are able to attend red carpet events? I could use some tips here in Miami. Is this your regular job or are you a pro at crashing Hollywood events? If the latter--I'm very impressed! Look forward to the answer! CHRISTINE
