Toronto Film Festival Report: Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, and Zach Galifianakis
Posted 09.13.10 by reelz
The Toronto Film Festival is in full swing, and ReelzChannel correspondent Matt Mauro is there covering the range of blockbusters and indies, as well as blogging the event. In his latest report, we hear about Shia LaBeouf feeling "intimidated and outclassed" on the set of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Carey Mulligan's driving lessons for Never Let Me Go, and a Zach Galifianakis sighting.
Hello from the Toronto International Film Festival day ... I can't remember. Feels like it's been two weeks but I think it's closer to day five.
The weekend was incredibly busy covering some of the best movies I've seen all year and talking with the stars that made them great.
Shia LaBeouf told me he was intimidated and outclassed on the set of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps — hey, if I was working with Oliver Stone, Michael Douglas, and Josh Brolin I'd be intimidated too. In fact, I could think of a few more ways to describe how scared I'd be but I'm not sure they're safe to type here...
I talked with Carey Mulligan about Never Let Me Go. By now you've maybe heard she had never learned to drive before she made the movie &mdash here's why: Carey told me she simply never had a reason to; she grew up in England and had always taken a bus. Pretty good reason, huh? She says she hated taking two weeks of driving school and was less than enthusiastic about it. No wonder she failed her test! Women drivers.... Kidding! She told me she failed because she never got the hang of driving a manual transmission.
Besides that, Zach G. went to the premiere of Clint Eastwood's and Matt Damon's new movie, and the best part is he walked in the line with of everyone else who had tickets, wearing a hoodie, cool hat, and with headphones on his ears. And Will I. Am was outside of a midnight premiere with Thandie Newton and Hayden Christenson. Guess he knew Kanye was going to win at the VMAs?
The fun's not over in Toronto just yet. I'm about to check out Helen Mirren and Sam Worthington's new film Rhe Debr. I'll let you know how it is later after I chat up Ryan Reynolds about Buried.
