On the Red Carpet with Vanessa Hudgens & Josh Hutcherson for the Premiere of Journey 2: Mysterious Island
Last night (January 15th) I hit the red carpet for the world premiere of Journey 2: Mysterious Island at the Jam Factory, Melbourne, Australia. While the crowd waited Michael Christian AKA MC of Fox FM got the crowd pumped and ready for A listers Vanessa Hudgens (Suckerpunch and High School Musical) and Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Hunger Games) to arrive.
And they did in style.Â This is Vanessa’s fourth time to Australia and we managed to get a few moments with her on the red carpet with Vanessa saying how much she loves Australia:
“Oh it’s beautiful, I love Melbourne, what do you suggest I do while I’m here?” Coffee of course was my answer!
Strutting the carpet in blush red sky high peep toes and a stunning gold one shouldered grecian inspired frock Vanessa looked stunning but had some trouble pronouncing the designer ‘I’m wearing – actually – would you believe I can’t say the name! Maybe you can say it. How do I pronounce this’, the stunning frock was by ‘Zaeem Jamal,‘ and showed off her splendidly toned physique which brought me to my next question:
‘You spend much of the movie running around, did you have to do any kind of workout to get ready?’ ‘oh I love keeping fit’ Vanessa told me ‘and I work out regularly with a fitness routine and I love yoga, so I was pretty fit before starting the movie’.
With that I let Vanessa move on and grabbed a moment with Josh.
‘Welcome to Melbourne Josh and I have to ask because it looks so amazing on you, but what are you wearing’ I asked ‘Actually I love this suit’ Josh said ‘ It’s Zaeem Jamal‘ at which we laughed ‘oh, that’s the same Designer as Vanessa’s dress which we couldn’t pronounce and you’ve just pronounced perfectly’ ‘is it’ Josh laughed, looking puzzled then opened his jacket to reveal ‘Lansdowne‘ ‘Oh no’ he laughed ‘I can’t believe I told you the wrong designer! And I love this suit, it’s my favorite.’
You’re building an impressive career for yourself Josh, can you tell me what it was like working with a Hollywood legend like Michael Caine: ‘Oh he’s amazing, to work with someone of that calibre with that kind of career and amount of time in the business, you’re constantly learning from them and there is always something new that they bring to the table’. ‘The other thing I noticed Josh was how active you are in the movie, riding bikes and even bees, just how did they manage to make you look like you were riding a bee – mechanical bull and blue screen’?. ‘Exactly’ Josh exclaimed ‘basically, you are exactly right, they had us in front of this blue screen and we’re on this kind of mechanical looking bull and it’s moving all around and we’re acting and saying our lines and doing our thing, to then see the end result is incredible, it’s amazing what those guys do’.
Last question for your Josh. The Rock and that scene with ‘pop your pecs’ how did you manage to keep a straight face’. ‘It was hard I can tell you, there were many many out takes, but it was a riot shooting with The Rock and we had so much fun, it was really great’.
With that I let Josh go, because lucky me gets 10 minutes to interview Vanessa and Josh tomorrow – I can’t wait!
The movie opens on Thursday 20 January and stars Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, The Rock, Michael Caine and Dwayne Johnson.
