Washington, May 01 : American actress Helen Hunt revealed that she went through a nightmare at the premiere of her new movie "And Then She Found Me", where she had to tackle the projectionist as the picture was completely out of focus.
Hunt screened her directorial debut for the first time at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada last September (07), and she confessed that she was terrified when she learned it would be watched by as many as 3,000 film fans.
"We were on our way to the premiere, and I was really nervous. I didn't know what to expect because I hadn't brought my own film somewhere before," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"My boyfriend (Matthew Carnahan) had, so he said, 'It's probably 200-300 seats.' And the driver from Canada said, 'Sorry, it's 2,000-3,000 seats.' So I started to sweat," she said.
The actress revealed that as the evening proceeded, things started going from bad to worse.
"I sat down in this big, beautiful theatre and the movie was out of focus. But I don't mean a little out of focus. I don't mean filmmaker, picky, out of focus. I mean when we ran upstairs and asked them to put it in focus the audience cheered," she stated.
Lucky for her, things started to improve after sometime.
"Then something happened and people started laughing and crying and standing and clapping and now it's in theatres so it was a very lucky night for me," she added.
