Zakiya was in for the ride of her life when she went to the premiere of The Fate of the Furious! Buckle up and read on to know what she thought when she met Charlize Theron and who she saw at the after-party.
What was it like when you got to the premiere?
Surreal. I think that’s a way to sum it up. You see these events on TV, but it’s so amazing, hectic, chaotic and delightfully wonderful to be on the other side of that and watch it all come together. It was great interacting with people in the film industry and actually seeing other celebrities galavanting down the red carpet was just amazing!
How was meeting Charlize Theron?
My first thought was no thought! I was surprised I could put coherent sentences together and interact with her. She was wonderful and so nice.
What kind of things did you guys talk about?
We talked about her organization, the amazing work she was doing, movies, her favorite characters and what team she was on. I asked her if she was Team Dom or Team The Rock.
How was the movie?
The movie was fantastic. True Fast and Furious fashion. They went bigger and better, I don’t want to say any spoilers, but the action was bigger than ever and the dynamic between the characters was even funnier. It was just an all-around great movie.
Tell us about the after-party!
That was wild. It was massive! It was so much fun to casually interact with a lot of the celebrities instead of meeting them on the red carpet while fans are yelling and screaming their names. My sister got to interact with Michelle Rodriguez, and we got to speak a little bit more with Charlize. We also bumped into Tyrese and Ludacris.
What was the highlight of the experience?
Probably the moment when I got to interact with The Rock and he had an idea of who I was. It was nice to speak to him and to know how pleasant of a person he is. Overall, meeting Vin Diesel brought the premiere from a 10 to a 20.
Any words to your fellow Omazers?
To those who haven’t won yet, there’s definitely a chance because there was no way I thought I would have won. There’s a chance for all of us! To the community at large, we should definitely continue to support all these causes whether we win or not, because they are so worth it and hopefully overall we can see that we are making a difference.
Sounds like it was fate! Big thanks to everyone for supporting the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project and their mission is to invest in African youth to keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS.
