First Things First: Buried.
Last week, Chris and I were in Barcelona to visit the set of his feature film, "Buried." This trip was huge: it included our first flights to Europe, first trip to Barcelona, and my first time on a real movie set.
And it was beyond cool. It was so inspiring to see my husband, who has worked tirelessly to move his career forward, be greeted by almost every member of the crew as, "Chris! So glad you're here! We love your script. It is incredible." People were asking him to autograph the script and when we went to dinner with the crew that night, it made me so proud to hear people talking about what a truly unique script Chris had written. (Granted, there was that one brief moment when we were meeting Ryan and I wasn't sure if Ryan was going to shake Chris's hand or punch him in the face for putting him in the coffin. Thankfully, it was the former. Also thankfully, Ryan was very nice and down-to-earth.)
The whole thing was surreal. And I was definitely a proud Sparling.
But enough gushing. I was trying to look professional, damnit.

Ahem. Moving on.
I wish I could post the pictures we took of the set and of the actual production, but it's in the best interests of the film for me to keep them under wraps for now. I mean, even PopSugar is stalking Ryan on this, and I don't want to do anything that could possibly give away too much too early.
But I can post this picture:
Director Rodrigo Cortes, actor Ryan Reynolds, and writer/husband Chris Sparling. Oh, and me.
This experience was really amazing and I'm proud to have been a part of it. More on Barcelona tomorrow - with La Rambla and Sagrada Familia and the epic low blood sugars that chased us around the city - once I load up the 14,350 photos we snapped!
