The Incredible Hulk premiere was held at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA. Asians on the carpet included former Power Ranger Michael Copon and Filipina entertainment reporter Janet Nepales along with her husband Ruben Nepales. Mr. Nepales is the only Filipino member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.(from second right Janet Nepales and Ruben Nepales).
Last Sunday was a nice warm day with a slight hint of a breeze to have the World Premiere of “The Incredible Hulk” at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA. (Right next to Universal Studios for those who are not familiar with the area).
Instead of the typical red carpet, we had a light green carpet to contend with. Many of the attendees wore some sort of green colored outfit. For film star Liv Tyler, she opted for a nice short cut Stella McCartney dress. I didn't realize how tall Ms. Tyler was. I was about 300 feet from the start point of the carpet and I could still see the top of her head above all the other photogs that were around the bend where the carpet began.
For Mr. Edward Norton it was a quick snap, snap and goodbye as Edward doesn't like all the red carpet bruhaha. For some odd reason, Mr. Norton was another actor fixated on one photographer, my friend Richard who was on a step stool behind me. For three minutes of trying to get Edward to look at our cameras, he just started at Richard's forever and a day. We joked with Richard saying, “What did you do to Edward? Did you do some voodoo to get him to stare at your camera or did you have a 3 minute bromance?”
Michael Copon is definitely able to make the rounds of red carpets quicker than any former Power Rangers.
