Benicio Del Toro Wins Celebrity Sign-Off!
Forget all of the awards handed out at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The real mark of a celebrity’s worth is how gracious he or she is about signing autographs.
Thankfully, festival Web site TIFF ’08 compiled info on who was scribble-happy and who was scribble-stingy at this year’s festivities, based on polling of fans, festival volunteers and officials.
