Dionne traveled to Austin from her hometown which is a notable driving distance, with hopes to see Michael filming that Terrence Malick movie. She visits Austin often enough to have an idea how to position herself, with the help of an industry friend. She did not see him on Saturday and was bummed out about it, but, that's life. However, she saw Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman... but no Fassy. As she was set to drive back home Saturday night, her sister informed her that there was a tornado warning back home and to not come home that evening, instead, ride back early Sunday. Already, you can sense that the Fassy Gods above was cooking up something for Dionne. She remains in Austin for an unscheduled evening.
A scene is being shot and it was completed. Dionne, goes over and introduces herself and get's a HUG! Now, this is where I have to interject. In the two years that I have known Dionne, I have failed to ask her for a picture so I can see what she looks like. Maybe I thought I saw her once before, but it just dawned on me today, that I don't know what my own admin team member looks like. After she told me about her luck today, she then sends me a picture of her upon my request, and it's clear why Michael was compelled to donate a hug to her. She's supermodel gorgeous! Nicole better cling tight onto Michael from this point on because Dionne is his type! (Sorry Dionne for embarrassing you, but I think it's just so cool and funny!) In the one minute that they talk, she said she found out about him from Fassinating Fassbender (Yeah, pimp our blog!) After a brief convo Dionne left... but she knows that Michael knew she was a fan and was cool with her being there. No pictures or autographs, but what happened in Austin, happened, and it could not happen to a more deserving fan.
Congrats Dionne... I knew this would happen for you, and thank GOD for that tornado! :)
