In the #tiff15 #tiffsoiree Luma party, I was leaning against a concrete post, eating a marinated lamb chop. A woman stopped to adjust her shoe and leaned against the post. She said: "Sorry", as if she was intruding. I said: "No worries. I don't own the pole." She asked if they were serving food and I pointed to where the lamb chop server had gone. She went after him. Later when I was a few feet away down the bar, she said hi again, and we wound up chatting all night, even moving up to the rooftop party together. She's visiting from England, where she owns a couple of movie production companies. At some point she told me about a female DJ friend who had invited Benedict Cumberbatch to a party at @thompsonhotels for #tiff13 and he never showed and she assumed he just never tried to come and that's why he was at @sohohousetoronto that night, and now they are both with other people. I pulled out an Instagram photo from #tiff13 which is a selfie of me with Benedict Cumberbatch behind me trying unsuccessfully to get into a @thompsonhotels party. Crazy small world. I said it must be so frustrating to almost meet your soulmate, like where Jimmy Fallon didn't know he was on a date with Nicole Kidman. My friend said that she thinks this just means it wasn't meant to be. Anyway, hopefully it is meant to be that me and my new friend hang out more at #tiff15.
