Police lockdown at Tropfest LA

SIMON Baker, Joel Edgerton and Jon Polson found themselves in police lockdown at the weekend in an LA bomb scare.

The trio, and a band of famous faces including Kym Wilson, Nash Edgerton and Margot Robbie, were celebrating the launch of Tropfest LA at the Linwood Dunn Theatre in Hollywood when the evening was interrupted by the sound of sirens as police and a bomb squad were called to the building next door following a bomb threat.

Guests said as robots and sniffer dogs arrived, LA Tropfest launch revellers were told police were locking down their venue as a precaution.

“As a result guests were told to just hold tight which they did until the wee hours of the morning,” one Tropfest fan said yesterday. “Luckily they were in fairly high spirits.”

Some 2012 Tropfest finalists got more than they bargained for. They were let out at 1.30am.

‘Pan Am’ actresses share portrait of women empowerment in the 1960’s

Pan Am might be a hit television show on ABC, but for the ladies who once worked for the real airlines in the 1960’s it was a way of life in a different time. The actresses who portray some of those women were on The View Thursday morning discussing the time the hit show is set and how different it was compared to 2011.

The four main characters, all stewardesses from the show shared how the conception of the show is different than what most people think of stewardesses. Christina Ricci, Kelli Garner, Margot Robbie, and Karine Vanasse each shared how the hit show has really struck a chord for women globally.

“It shows just how these women were empowered. Back in the 60’s in a society where that was so difficult to branch out and lead their lives the way they wanted to do it. It is really amazing,” said Margot Robbie.

Robbie wasn’t the only one who questioned whether there was an actual story in the pilot of the idea. Christina Ricci also didn’t think much of the idea until she was introduced to how the ladies who took care of the passengers did more than look pretty.

“I had the common misconception in my head,” said Christina Ricci. “When I heard what was actually required of these Pan Am stewardesses. They had to be college educated and know many languages and everything else. It was like wow his totally blows my misconceptions out of the water.”

Fans around the globe couldn’t agree more as the series isn’t just a hit in America. Strong numbers are coming from other countries who love watching the weekly program as well.

Take a look at the four primary actresses discussing their jobs to share the real empowerment found when being a stewardess on Pan Am Airlines.
