LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Sean Penn, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and the cast of “Slumdog Millionaire” were among the stars who walked away with statues at the SAG Awards on Sunday, but it was a young fan outside who may treasure his prize the most.
Vincent Larente, the sixth grader who was seated in the fan section of the red carpet at the SAG Awards, managed to do what many journalists could not – nab face time with Angelina Jolie, when he flagged her down for an autograph.
The young man was the lone member of the red carpet fans who managed to get a souvenir from Angelina, before she and partner Brad Pitt headed into Sunday night’s SAG Awards.
“When they were walking by us…I took the pen and I went, ‘Ahhh!’” Vincent recounted to Access, demonstrating the signals he used to coax Angelina over. “I wanted them to sign [my autograph book], but then I saw that they were walking across and they weren’t stopping for anybody else.”
As he saw the supercouple walking away, Vincent said he remembered Angelina is a mom.
“I heard that Angelina Jolie likes kids, so then she stopped for me,” he enthused. “And then she signed her [signature].”
But Angelina wasn’t the only lady who the young man captured autographically.
“I got Kate Winslet also,” he said.
