When Emilie met Michael

I really do enjoy reading close encounter fan reports from friendly Fassinators. Emilie is one of the regular commenters here and she kindly mailed me a copy of Obsession last week, so she's really a sweetheart! And that's why I was doubly happy for her in that her 7-hour train trip to Paris paid off in being able to actually meet Michael the other day.

She gave me permission to share these images with all of you along with her comments about the quick meeting. She gave him that box of French cigarettes that he's holding.

"Hello! you can see me on this picture, with my box of cigarettes."

This picture was taken on Emilie's phone. Her only brilliant shot of Michael. I really like this!

I think they hadn't expected so many fans to be there! There was no barrier in front of the cinema. But Michael was very kind and took a little of his time for us, contrary to Charlize who didn't even look at us! The paparazzi were a bit rude but it was ok, noone has been hurt! I look ridiculous on this vid but I was so HAPPY he spoke to me and looked at me in the eyes (it was my secret dream!). You're right, I'll never forget this day but I hope I will be able to attend a real "avant première" where I could see him a bit longer! :) - Emilie

Some of you may have seen this gif at tumblr yesterday, but the ecstatic girl is Emilie! LOL! :D

"The hysterical girl on the vid is me :) It seems that Michael turns me into a teenager!"

Thanks for sharing this with us Emilie! You have demonstrated that with being proactive and planning to the T, fans can meet Michael. And I think I can say for everyone reading this, that we're glad that Michael appreciates us fans and give us a few moments of his time. We all hope he never becomes tired and jaded from fans, at premieres, to just walk pass us like many high-profile celebrities do. Michael is special, and that's why we care about him.
