Buro 24/7 Singapore turns one: The most memorable celebrities we've met
It's been one hell of a year. From hustling the red carpets for one-liners to keeping our cool in intimate chats, we've been blessed to meet some of the film and music industry's finest characters. Here are our top five moments

1. When Reese Witherspoon gave men some advice on picking a proposal ring

Her tip? Ask what the woman wants. We sat with her for a brief 15 minutes in the plush surrounds of the presidential suite at the St.Regis Singapore. The Legally Blonde actress was in town to launch Tiffany & Co.'s Tiffany Masterpieces.

2. When Nile Rodgers boogied the night away and closed the first evening of Neon Lights 2015

It was a night to remember, with the iconic musician belting out hit after hit. He even rallied some audience members onto the stage. We sneaked in a chat with him at Hotel Fort Canning hours before his closing set,
and found out what turns him on.


3. When we were only given a minute with Dev Patel — but loved it nonetheless

He's a man you can't pin down. In town last December for the Singapore International Film Festival to promote 
The Man Who Knew Infinity — where he plays playing renowned mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan — Patel walked down the red carpet at the Marina Bay Sands Skypark and shared a thing or two about the process of playing a genius.

4. When Yuna shared with us what sound the heart makes when it breaks

Yes, the Malaysian-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter got deep. In our video interview at Mandarin Orchard before her show last October, she had us in giggly fits as the charmer talked old-school r&b — we even gifted her with a turban from our favourite "turbanator" Gracinha Viterbo.

5. When we chased Jessica Chastain, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron down the red carpet premire of The Huntsman: Winter's War

Thousands of fans together with local and regional media looked on as Chastain, Hemsworth, Theron and their director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan walked down the red carpet at Hollywood Boulevard, Universal Studios in Resorts World Sentosa. We tracked Chastain's visual diary here.
