Journalists "threw" a press conference and movie stars - with the appropriate questions

May 23 2006

Board journalists: if you're going to an important press conference and its organizers, was listed agency InterMedia, beware. Even seasoned reporters before heading to a scheduled event, rarely comes to mind several times to check the time and place of meeting. If the press release indicated the beginning of, say, at 18.00, then to doubt the sincerity of its sponsors do not have the habit of the correspondent. Usually no need.

However not the case with InterMedia. On the eve of this is the company performing the official press-agent of the award "Golden Heart". The editors of our publications, as expected, was invited to a press conference with guests of the ceremony Sophia Loren, Steven Segal and Jessica Lange. All the formalities have been met: put the announcement of the celebration and received accreditation.

However, to get to the hidden meeting with the stars of first magnitude we have not succeeded, at least, fully as many other journalists. Instead of the 6 o'clock, it started an hour earlier - at 5. To witness the final part of the communication actors with reporters (selected yet received a press release indicating the correct time), our reporter was only due to the fact that understanding the importance of the event and just really wanting to see firsthand the legendary Italian diva, he came to the building of ITAR-TASS as he thought, half an hour before.

Thus, three famous actors come to Russia to give the statuette of the Golden Heart ", the people who make a real interest in the fate of children whose lives and livelihoods were under threat. Among the other award was to give his father Nicholas Stremskii, a huge family where 60 foster children, Vishnevskaya and Rostropovich Foundation, which provided vaccinations for more than 3 million children from different types of hepatitis, measles and other diseases. Laureate also became Sara Nazarbayev's long-term activities aimed at protecting the rights of the younger generation.

Before meeting with reporters Jessica Lange, speaking in Russian as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), visited several Russian orphanages and obviously wanted to share my experiences and observations about the lives of our orphans.

However, what are the questions had to answer to people who arrived in Moscow for the award in the field of children's charity? (To judge by accounts he had heard during the second part of the press conference.)

"How did you like" The Da Vinci Code "and the movie version came out?" "Are you impressed by the latest King Kong?" In other words, the journalists who bother to inform the organizers about the true time of the meeting, a little worried adoptive kids. Much more took their promotion published in rent (or have already gone well out of it) blockbusters. Probably in that their interests coincided with the agency InterMedia.

Asked about the nouveau masterpiece Brown Sophia Loren with a polite smile, replied that it "has not yet read, but when the time will probably watch the film. Jessica Lange did not conceal bewilderment and sour facial expressions when, after a single coherent to the question of its mission to Russia, it spread again asked about the taste if it had to Naomi Watts in (what there is on the account?) "King Kong".

After the press conference, Lang, first left is a strange event, apparently, trying to understand whether there is even hit. Steven Seagal is impressive on the sidelines for several minutes gave interviews, and the beautiful Italian Lauren smiled at her timeless smile surrounded by flashbulbs and ingratiating, of admiring glances.

And at the entrance to the building at this time protection without any explanation, declared suitable reporters that the event was "unfortunately already ended.It seems that the appropriate questions about the aspirations, motivations and intentions of the "Golden Heart" and special guests, prizes, appeared only in plans correspondents simply "thrown" the guys from InterMedia. And coming out of the building Lang, Segal and Lauren met with surprise on the porch of the crowd with dejected faces.

It is gratifying that their agents have the portal is everywhere, so watch pictures from the ceremony of "Golden Heart" .
