Andy Samberg at the Funny People Premiere - Exclusive photos and story from Sandy Nixon

Hello everybody! We have the exclusive scoop from Sandy Nixon, who went to the Funny People premiere and got us photos (so these are different from the photos we've already posted). Here is Sandy's story...

Can you spot Andy? He's in the middle:

It was sooo fun!! I can't believe how many celebs were there!! Andy didn't walk to red carpet, as most celebs didn't. There were 2 entrances. Andy said hi for a few minutes and went inside. I tried getting a picture after the movie but he hesitated and said no politely.

Back of Andy's head:

Zach Levi (my guess is he's too new to be bored of it yet; that's why he was signing autographs for 45 minutes):

Anyway, the premiere was awesome, I saw 50+ celebs, I've included a list of all the ones that I saw. The coolest one I would have to say was Zach Levi, he was outside taking pictures and signing autographs for a good 45 min! Everyone else 5 minutes tops.

Anna Faris:

Andy talks to the little people:

Anna Faris and Andy Samberg were really cool too. Chris Rock came over as well, which was awesome because he was the only "A-lister" celeb that did. At the theater there was a courtyard with the red carpet on one side, and the parking garage on the other. In the middle was the Will Call line (where all the celeb guests and regular guests had to check in, including Andy).

Chris Rock:

Andy shakes hands:

Andy, as well as many other celebs came straight from the garage and didn't even walk the red carpet, which is why there aren't any photos of him and many others on wireimage or gettyimages on the red carpet. They had a guard rail set up that wrapped around an outdoor patio that was connected to the theater.

Picture of a picture of Andy:

My friend and I decided to go eat at the restaurant connected to the theater so we could eat on the patio (which was elevated like 5 feet so we could see everything!). Technically we weren't allowed to take photos, but the security guard was really cool and would let us sneak pictures and stuff until his boss would tell him to make us stop on his walkie talkie thing.


So Andy was cool and was taking photos with some people; I didn't get a chance to say hi or anything to him but I was a little upset because I almost wore the exact same shirt he was wearing! Which would have made conversation easier.

Are they trying to get Andy to sign the hat? Check it out:

After the movie (during the movie my friend and I shopped around Sunset) we went back and there weren't that many people waiting to see them. Andy walked by and we asked for a picture but he was hesistant, then said, "Sorry guys!". But yes, he was alone!

I can barely see his right eye. I think he would be a great super hero:

Akiva was there with Liz, but Andy wasn't hanging out with them really. Jimmy Kimmel was really cool afterward and my friend and I got a cool picture with him! The premiere was in 4 theaters, so I don't even know if they were in the same theater together.

Andy walking:

With Jimmy:

Andy was by himself though, as well as at the Grove (as seen on Perez) AND at the 4th of july party (that I attended as well). Possibly Joanna is back in New York busy with her own stuff?? I'm not too sure. Either way, it was a super fun event, and I hope to run into Andy more while he spends his summer here in LA!!

Andy is still walking:

Looks like Andy forgot something:


Oh, also, Topher Grace was really cocky and just ran inside with his collar popped up and a baseball hat on. And after the movie he was walking and walked into a light pole and kicked the bottom of it making a loud noise and people laughed at him, haha. Kinda funny, probably embarrasing for him.

Joanna lives in California, like all of the dudes families. When she is in NYC for extended periods, she is staying WITH Andy. He has spent the past summers in Cali with/to be close to her and his family. They all have busy lives with and outside of each other and cannot expect to be seen together constantly, when they are spotted out. From the way Joanna and Andy look at eachother- even recently, it seems like they are too into each other to be apart- split up- for now and possibly, period. I'm seems unfair for so many people to speculate and anticipate every time they're apart as a sign and/or why the guys aren't sewn at the hip 24-7. (and Jorma's married- he really has an outside life). Just my opinion.

thats a cool story, you're lucky you got to go to that! I wonder why Andy wouldn't take a pic with you guys though?

Sweet Story! Nice pix and good post! One of the bad things about not living in CA. :( Lucky you!
