One X One and Matt Damon’s impenetrable fortress (a.k.a. Maple Leaf Gardens)
We don’t care for sneaking into parties. It’s so sordid. But we couldn’t help ourselves last night at the One X One event at Maple Leaf Gardens. We circled a number of times—more for posterity than in the hope of finding an open door—before meeting some lovely security guards who politely told us to get lost, which we did (it was raining and we were expected at Ultra for a much-easier-to-get-into event. Sometimes, one’s losses must be cut, and not even Matt Damon can entice us to make an unladylike scene on Church Street. At least, not on day 5. We simply don’t have the energy. Perhaps One X One ambassador Russell Peters could have whisked us in the doors using magic, but, sadly, we missed him on the red carpet.

first of all, as a person who stood in the rain for 2 hours,let’s get real. The chaos outside was terrible and the organizers have no idea what they are doing.The venue was hot and it stinks – no wonder Loblaws left it mothballed. This is event is so boring. I went the second year and the crush of elitist crap of who can touch the stars and who cant was apalling. Now, 4 years later this event has no direction, no reason and no mission. The celebs get paid to show up and take pictures with orphans while the film fetival media is here and never ever really understand where the money goes. Even worse are those horrible speeches. Even the oscars have a 2 minute limit – that one crazed woman going on and on about absolutely nothing is pure nails on a blackboard. Who writes this stuff – it is such a self serving event that has no soul. And please – enough with those auctions already. We don’t want walk ons and crappy signed merch. Who cares about Matt Damon and the same music over and over. My prediction is that tiff will be spared by this mess next year.
so agree. It was so depressing in there. the ripped out seats and the cheap decorations, it looked like a bus terminal. We were asked by one of the banks my husband works for and it was so painful listening to those speeches. Where does the money go? What do hollywood celebrities have to with charity in Canada? We finally left at 10:30pm with a lot of other guests who thought the evening would never end. It just looked like a strange ego trip for a few people that have an odd agenda. Oh, and one other thing, Wylcef your 15 minutes are up. You are talented but over exposed. One person at the next table said this was the same show for the last three years!! One x One, the guests all left. Viva Pizza Pizza.
