Here we are to tell our little adventure with Henry. Henry is very helpful, kind, just a real star in addition to being even more attractive in person than he is on TV. Thanks to two of our friends, (..) we heard that Henry has lived for some time in Monterotondo right here where I live with my husband Umberto. On Saturday afternoon (..) I met Luca Calvani, who was also very kind in telling me that Henry had left just next to a pizzeria and that if I ran then I'd certainly meet him. After thanking him and taking a picture with him and Guy Ritchie, I ran (..) as soon as I saw it I could not believe my eyes... he was there! sitting at the bar eating a pizza along with an actor and his friend Gina Carano. We did not want to disturb him but he stepped forward first, asking us if we wanted to take a picture. We were all excited and my husband told him that we were coming from Monterotondo and you know what he said? "Monterotondo?? Really??” he'd been here in our country for three months, thirteen years ago because he had a girlfriend of Monterotondo! the world is really small! we cannot but be happy about this! thinking that something familiar to Henry binds us makes us happy! we talked about many things, we congratulated him for "Man of Steel” and for his career and then I also told him that I had come to Caprarola planning to visit him and he said he was sorry for not being in Caprarola and he said: “Sorry … ” I did not understand anything. I asked him if I could hug him and kiss him and he hugged me and gave me a kiss, I’ll never forget! - the nice thing that we are thrilled about is that when we spoke in Italian, he responded very well and understood us. It's been a wonderful experience! we then met again on the last day of filming in Rome, and as a gift we gave him a small calendar of Rome with a dedication. "To Henry, hugs and kisses, Umberto and Mariarosa from Monterotondo” and he was so happy that he asked me if the calendar was for him. Henry, really did not think that a person could be so human and genuine. We hope to see him again soon.
