Our Guest Blogger Arrives In L.A., Hangs With Steve Carell For MTV Sneak Peek Week

Our guest blogger will be covering the highlights from now through the big show on Sunday, so check in daily as she live-blogs her Movie Awards experience!

Hey everyone! I touched down in L.A. earlier today, and I’ve been pretty much on the go ever since! Today has been crazy, but so much fun. I’ve never visited L.A. before, so it’s been amazing to just ride around and see some of the famous sights the city holds such as Sunset Strip, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, etcetera. I also had my first celebrity “encounter”: “7th Heaven” castmember Tyler Hoechlin passed by us in his car.

After a little cruising around it was time to head to the Arclight Theatre for the MTV Sneak Peek Week screening of “Get Smart,” starring Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway.

During the movie I had the opportunity to watch Steve Carell give an interview with MTV. It was really cool getting to see some of the behind the scenes action, and might I add that Steve is HILARIOUS!

After the credits rolled inside the theatre, Steve did a Q&A with members of the audience, which also produced some pretty amusing moments. I thought I might be a bit starstruck seeing such a big star like Steve in person, but he’s really just an awesome guy who shares my love of Target.

Once things wrapped up at the theatre I was treated to my very first In-N-Out Burger experience. How people are able to eat that much food in one sitting is a complete mystery to me. Anway, today was really awesome and I’ve had a great time so far hanging out with the MTV News crew. Now I’m back at the hotel to rest up for tomorrow which will be an even more exciting day! Until then…

The MTV Movie Awards will air live on MTV on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, with MTV News’ “Coming Attractions” preshow kicking the evening off at 7:30 p.m. ET! Meanwhile, stay tuned to the MTV Movies Blog and MovieAwards.MTV.com.
