U.S. Open champion Bianca Andreescu has been riding high this week with appearances all over New York and congratulations pouring in from every Canadian celeb from Shania Twain to Christopher Plummer to (finally) Drake. Now, the 19-year-old tennis star has returned to Toronto just in time for the latter half of TIFF and she’s only checking out the best the festival has to offer—that is, legendary actress, activist and all-around fantastic human being, Jane Fonda.
Jane isn’t premiering a film at TIFF, but she joined Marilyn Denis for L’Oréal Presents a Conversation with Jane Fonda, where she covered major career highlights, her life tips for being a fraction as incredible as she is and a little hint at what she’s doing next. Another conversation between Marilyn and Jane will air on The Marilyn Denis Show Friday.
Bianca and Jane weren’t the only ones making the most of TIFF Wednesday—Natalie Portman greeted her adoring fans, Jon Hamm got a quintessential Toronto shot and Javier Bardem may be the suavest of them all.
Check out what the celebs were up to on TIFF Day 7 below and relive the Judy cast’s night on the town on TIFF Day 6.
Bianca Andreescu returns to Toronto for Jane Fonda’s TIFF event
Jane and MarilynThe conversation between Jane and Marilyn at Hotel X in Toronto ranged from Katherine Hepburn’s pettiness to the intimacy limitations of knee surgery to a possible 9 to 5 reunion. We could listen to Jane Fonda talk for another six hours TBH. George Pimentel/Getty Images

From one champ to anotherBianca Andreescu stopped by the TIFF chat before heading on to do more post-Open press. Spoiler: she got to hold the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy (A.K.A. that little basketball statue the Toronto Raptors won this year). George Pimentel/Getty Images
More Women PowerTIFF is making a big push to honour women in film this year and the premiere of Harriet was all about that. The ladies who were the powerhouses of the film—producer Debra Martin Chase, star Cynthia Erivo, producer Daniela Taplin Lundberg and director Kasi Lemmons—posed together at the post-screening party hosted by CÎROC Vodka at Mister C. The film also stars Janelle Monae, who was unfortunately in NYC. GP Images/Getty Images for ICONINK

James Bond?It appears Charlie Hunnam is making his case for the next 007 with his casual pose at the True History Of The Kelly Gang premiere party hosted By Grolsch at Weslodge. He’d be a more rugged James Bond for sure, but we kind of see him as the famed MI6 agent. Ernesto Distefano/Getty Images for ICONINK
The 504 in the 416Ahead of the Lucy in the Sky premiere, Jon Hamm had the perfect Toronto moment when he was snapped just as the 504 streetcar sped past on King Street West. Only things missing from this shot are the CN Tower and a Drake photobomb.Jemal Countess/Getty Images
Making memoriesNatalie Portman also took her time getting to the photowall on the Lucy in the Sky red carpet, making sure she signed every piece of paper that flew at her on the short walk to the theatre. We love a star who understands what a big moment that is for the fans. George Pimentel/Getty Images
The Kelly GangLater in the night, the True History Of The Kelly Gang cast demonstrated just how close they are by getting cozy at the world premiere party at Weslodge. Looks like Sean Keenan, Essie Davis and George Mackay are practically family now!Ernesto Distefano/Getty Images for ICONINK
