Star Sighting at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival

My most interesting star sighting happened on the afternoon Saturday September 10 in Yorkville. I was in the Kinsman Robinson Galleries browsing the art when I heard screaming from the street. I rushed out to see a crowd of screaming young women running down Cumberland Street. Intrigued, I went to the corner trying to see what the swarm of women were looking at. Suddenly the crowd parted to reveal Orlando Bloom riding by very slowly on a Vespa, with a huge grin on his face. As he continued down the road, the hoard of women chased him screaming at the top of their lungs. I read in the Globe and Mail the next day that Orlando rode for about a block before stopping and asking the women "Can I go now?". But from what I saw, he was not trying very hard to get away.
