Mike Myers is BACK! It’s been awhile since Myers has taken the role of an original character, but seems like the Guru’s have answered our prayers with the release of his latest film “The Love Guru.
Last night, crowds lined up outside the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre to get a glimpse of Myers who was kind enough to attempt to give everyone in the stands a high five. The star studded premiere brought Justin Timberlake who will be bringing “sexyback” with the Speedos he sports in the flick.
What’s a Myers movie without his sidekick Verne Troyer who came out on the blue carpet. He couldn't even resist as he kissed the real life Stanley Cup. Verne takes on the role of the Toronto Maple’s Leaf Coach Cherkov in the film. The Love Guru is based around Guru Pitka(Mike Myers) who is trying to help the Maple Leafs break the 40-year-old curse to win the Stanley Cup.
When we asked Myers if he believed the Maple Leaf’s would ever win the Stanley Cup he responded, “I think that the Toronto Maple Leafs need to think about what Nasa says that there is no such thing as failure, only early attempts of success. “
Speaking of success, we couldn’t help but ask Myers about the secret behind his comedy. Mike said, “I just like stuff that makes me laugh. I like comedy I never stopped loving comedy I hope to be doing it for the rest of my life."
Myers went on to say how overwhelmed he was with the turnout of the premiere. “This is all surreal, if you grew up in the suburbs of Toronto wishing to do this and watching films on TV and going 'God wouldn’t that be great.' When I was 11, I saw Saturday Night Live and I was like 'God I would love to do that one day,' so this is all a dream come true."
Myers' latest dream also features the beautiful Jessica Alba, who was fresh from her babies’ birth. The actress opted to skip the carpet but sources tell Hollyscoop exclusively that Jessica came into the theatre through the back doors in order to show her support.
Other stars that attended the premiere included Meagan Good, Romany Malco, Telma Hopkins,Mariska Hargitay, Tila Tequila and Joanne Garcia.
The Love Guru doesn’t hit theatres until June 20, 2008, until then check out our coverage from movie premiere. Always remember “Gee You Are You."
