Team InStyle traveled to the Toronto International Film Festival recently and set up a pop-up photo studio right in the heart of the city's downtown area. Many of the fest's biggest stars stopped by to chillax in our cozy area, where they gabbed about their flicks, ate Canadian candies, and got their portrait taken by photographer Jerome Corpuz.

Some of the most memorable moments to come from the six-day photo session marathon happened when the camera wasn't shooting and the recorders weren't taping interviews. Case in point: When Rosewater director Jon Stewart halted our interview in order to tell Cake and The Last Five Years star Anna Kendrick (in Thakoon) how much his daughter loved her work. Said Kendrick after the run-in: "I feel like it’s a strange position to be in when like heroes of mine are like ‘my daughter loves you!'"
