TIFF Photos Toronto celebrities

TIFF Photos: Brad Pitt, Jason Statham, Kirsten Dunst, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander Skarsgaard, U2 folk, Sarah Silverman, Eddie Vedder, Clive Owen, Sarah Polley, Viggo Mortenson & more

This doesn't bear repeating, but because I feel compelled to offer a brief text introduction to this photo roundup, I'll note that around this time of year there are a lot of celebrities to be seen around Toronto. Surprising, I know. But despite the plentiful supply of stars, another group has got them beat out in terms of sheer numbers — the photographers! Over the first four days of TIFF 2011, the paparazzi — professional and otherwise — has made its presence felt at every hotel lobby, red carpet affair, and theatre entrance. Here's a sample of some of what who they've snapped on the streets so far. Lead photo of Brad Pitt by Sam Javanrouh.
