HELLO! Canada gets ready for the Toronto International Film Festival, while its biggest-issue ever hits newsstands

    A total of 156 pages are packed with luscious photos, celebrity news -
    and a royal wedding watch

    TORONTO, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - Canada's only weekly celebrity magazine is on
pins and needles in anticipation of the glorious excitement of the Toronto
International Film Festival, which kicks off Sept. 10. From celebrity
sightings to ravishing red-carpet moments, HELLO! Canada will be on the scene.
As we gear up, what better time to look back at some celebrity photos of the
    Famed shutterbug George Pimentel - who will be snapping photos for HELLO!
Canada during this year's festival - shares some of his best celebrity
photographs in a three-part series, beginning this issue. Here, he presents
classic, Old-Hollywood-inspired black-and-white portraits of legends such as
Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams, Julia Roberts with Benjamin Bratt, and
Sean Penn - and talks about why each image is special to him.
    "It's always been about the journey of getting close to these legends -
the anticipation of that one perfect shot," says Pimentel, a Toronto native
and regular HELLO! Canada contributor. "I love the adventure."
