According to the Daily Dish, not all celebrities were leaving Sundance with their arms filled with gifts galore. When it comes to *shwag, its clear where you stand by how much loot you get to take home. Or not.
For example, former Bachelorette Trista and her husband Ryan Sutter, received sunglasses from Oakley and items from Kiehl’s but were “denied gifts from Motorola and Nintendo.” I didn’t know people actually got turned away from the gifting. I imagined it to be one huge smorgasbord, or shwagasbord if you will, of free jewels, electronics and clothes. But this does beg the question, what were Trista and Ryan doing in Sundance in the first place?
Remember Corey Feldman? He was turned away completely and had to leave empty handed! Oh the horror! Doesn’t anyone remember the Goonies? Darn it, that boy should have free everything for life. License To Drive, anyone? Stand By Me, ring a bell? How about Bikini Bandits? A huge talent, Corey Feldman is. Yet he was unable to score the freebies.
Justin Timberlake was bestowed with $7,000 Nefarious sunglasses. He asked for a pair to pass along to girlfriend, Cameron and received a second pair with no problem. However, fellow N'SYNC buddy Lance Bass was told he could borrow a pair of sunglasses but had to return them at the end of the day.
Paris Hilton received not one but two Nintendo game systems. Neither Lance or Corey got the Nintendo. If you are heading to Sundance for the freebies make sure you are actually someone worthy of getting the goods. Former child actor? You wont get much. An heiress? dingding! You hit the jackpot. Sundance freebies are good to those who can afford to pay for the shwag but don't have to.
