Wordless Wednesday — Meeting Diane Lane

by Janice


Meeting Diane Lane at the Secretariat World Premiere

On September 30th, Erica, our assistant extraordinaire here at 5 Minutes for Mom, and I attended the Secretariat World Premiere in Hollywood. We had the honor of interviewing Diane Lane at the party afterwards where we grabbed this quick shot.

It was an incredible experience and we both LOVED the movie. (You can read more about the film in my Secretariat review and interview with Secretariat Director, Randall Wallace.)

Secretariat is a must see for sure! I will be going again this weekend to see it with my son.

Diane was stunning and when she casually sat down in a chair at our table for our interview I was momentarily frozen with the realization that Diane Lane was sitting in front of me! And yet, while we chatted about motherhood and movie-making, I quickly forgot I was talking to a movie star. I was simply talking to a fellow mom with whom I could visit all night!

Thank you Diane for taking the time to talk to us at the end of an exhausting day. It was a meeting I will never forget!

Secretariat opened in theaters on October, 8th, 2010.You can also find Secretariat on Facebook at: Facebook.com/Secretariat and follow Secretariat on Twitter at: Twitter.com/SecretariatFilm.

That is so exciting! I can’t imagine being that close to, let alone talk to, someone that famous. I think it would take me a few minutes to get ahold of myself. I have seen the previews for the movie and it looks like one I want to see. The picture is impressive. You all look stunning!

32 The Gang's Momma October 13, 2010 at 7:45 am

I have long thought she is one of the most naturally beautiful women in show business. And I love that she always appears so gracious and ladylike and feminine – like an old-school star. What a fun opportunity for you guys!

I’m sitting in awe at the fact that my son is old enough to be starting the college prep test process… Off for his first PSAT’s this a.m.



33 Aisha October 13, 2010 at 8:08 am

That’s amazing! The movie also looks as if it’s a good one.

How exciting! I love Diane Lane! My all-time favorite movie is “Under the Tuscan Sun” in which she plays the leading lady.


35 Alicia October 13, 2010 at 8:41 am

How exciting that you got to go to the premiere and interview her! :)


36 Wendy October 13, 2010 at 9:04 am

Diane Lane is as talented as she is beautiful. And Randall Wallace is one of my favorite directors, so now I know I’ll want to see this movie!
