It’s a given that celebrities are superior to regular people in virtually every respect. They provide a necessary distraction from the workaday drudgery of life, and what do they receive for their troubles, besides generous salaries and the adulation of millions? For one thing, they do get to attend high-profile events like last night’s Hollywood premiere of a little film called Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens. And now, thanks to the miracle of social media, non-celebrities of the world can vicariously experience the exclusive premiere through star-studded and Star Wars-studded tweets, like this one from Rob Lowe, photographed alongside Force Awakens actor John Boyega:
And is there any celebrity more qualified to render his opinion of a new Star Wars movie than comedian and bona fide sci-fi geek Patton Oswalt? No. No, there is not.
There was no keeping the real-life Dwight Schrute away from this thing either.
Even Shonda Rhimes took time out from creating television programs to take in a showing of the new Star Wars adventure.
Parks And Recreation veteran Adam Scott, as is his wont, has offered a droll, sandwich-focused take on the proceedings.
Actually, Adam Scott’s always amusing Twitter feed has lately become a haven for patently bogus Force Awakens exclusives, such as this shot of Jon Glazer as Ted Knight, looking very vaguely Obi-Wan Kenboi-esque.
In the end, however, there is one one celebrity whose opinion of The Force Awakens truly matters: the guy who did the voice of the snowman in Frozen. He liked it. And the world can now rest a little easier. Thanks again, celebrities. You’re all the best.
