Timid Tilly's brush with [adorable!] fame

Rounding out the end of SXSW 2009, Tilly and Thom attended the Saturday evening premiere of the adorable indie flick 500 Days of Summer, directed by Marc Webb and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.

The director, writer, and stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt made an appearance right before the show began and at the subsequent Q&A. Tilly was a bit nervous about actually getting so close to these famous people, especially since she is a teensy bit obsessed with Zooey Deschanel (see the evidence). Armed only with a crappy phone camera, she was too embarrassed to ask to take a picture with her indie idol or her super-cute counterpart, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The lead actors are apparently BFFs, as they said in the Q&A. Way cute. It helped to make their performances in this quirky, sweet and hilarious film believable and thoroughly charming. When 500 Days of Summer shows up in regular movie theaters on July 24, we urge you to see it! It also has really great music, which doesn't just adorn the soundtrack but permeates the film in the best possible way. Check out the tracks below!

"Us" - Regina Spektor
"Sweet Disposition" - The Temper Trap


  1. Awesome!
    But you should've gotten the picture!!

  2. you gotta take the plunge, i talked with streetlight manifesto and they were super cool. i guess it's easier to approach people if you're not obsessed with them and you're on of the 8 people other than the band who speak english
