Stage door: First I apologize for the terrible photo quality it was dark and I have a really shitty camera phone.
An amazing thing happened. After being slightly disappointed at only getting a glimpse of Ben on the red carpet I decided to hang out at the front of the theatre to wait for him to come out after, cause I am a naive idiot. Around 8:00 two photographers who I will bless to eternity came up to me and said “he’s coming out round the back you know, not here, if you hurry to the stage door you might see him.” So I scooted there where a mid sized crowd was waiting and there was a bit of a hill on one side so I could actually see over the crowd to the door. After about 45 excruciating minutes he finally came out after all the others and went round to everyone signing and taking photos for about the 3rd time in one long day. He stayed for ages and I saw him really close and it was wonderful and unreal. The top photo is just as he was to leave he stood up on the side of the suv, took off his glasses, put a long finger to his lips to shush us and spoke to everyone saying that he had to go straight back to London tonight so he had to go and was sorry he couldn’t stay longer and thanked us. (when he first stood up the car began to move forward which was a bit scary but it didn’t phase him). He got in the car then and it pulled out but he rolled down the window and waved and waved till he was round the corner. I think I began to cry at that point It was all very surreal and wonderful and incredible. The weird thing is he looks the same in reality as in photos only even better plus his lovely freckles show. Still can’t believe I was actually there!
