Guess Who’s Coming to TIFF

Thumbnail image for Gosling.jpgThe stars are definitely aligning for TIFF12!

The festival is presenting 372 films in total (289 feature-length and 83 short films) so it’s no surprise that the number of internatonal stars and filmmakers set to hit Toronto’s red carpet is mighty impressive.

Sadly, “my famous husband” (aka George Clooney) will not attend TIFF this year, but I did find plenty of other celebs to get excited about. And so will you.

Eva Mendes and boyfriend Ryan Gosling are rumoured to hit the red carpet together for the first time. Spanish husband-wife actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem will be here. As will Halle Berry and Tom Hanks who will be attending the screening of their film Cloud Atlas.

The list of “who’s-who” is very long but I have some highlights. So if you’re planning on attending TIFF screenings or just doing some star-gazing in downtown Toronto, check out a handly little guide below.

Ladies, keep your eyes peeled for these hot actors:

Ben Affleck | Bradley Cooper | Bruce Willis | Colin Farrell | Colin Firth | Ewan McGregor | Gael Garcia Bernal | Jake Gyllenhaal | James Franco | Jason Bateman | Javier Bardem | Johnny Depp | Jude Law | Pierce Brosnan | Ralph Fiennes | Robert De Niro | Robert Redford | Ryan Gosling | Viggo Mortensen | Will Smith

Gentlemen, be on the look-out for these beauties:

Catherine Deneuve | Eva Mendes | Gwyneth Paltrow | Halle Berry | Jennifer Connelly | Julianne Moore | Kate Hudson | Keira Knightley | Marion Cotillard | Naomi Watts | Penelope Cruz

Film-Geeks, get ready to spot these filmmakers:

Barry Levinson | Brian De Palma | Edward Burns | Olivier Assayas | Paul Thomas Anderson | Spike Lee

And how fun would it be to run into:

Andy Sandberg | Adam Sandler | Bruce Willis, Jacky Chan | Joseph Gordon-Levitt | Tom Hanks

Where are your best odds of spotting them?

Aside from the movie premieres of course, there are TIFF hot-spots where you may want to hang out to do some star-gazing. According to our very own Sonya ( The Cultured Pearl), these include: The Shangri-La Hotel which is slated to open in time for TIFF, The Thompson Hotel, Maison Mercer, Buca, The Spoke Club (this year’s venue for Niki Beach), Sotto Sotto and The Beast.

So get your cameras and sharp eyes ready. September 6th is just around the corner!
