As reported by JUST JARED:
"AnnaLynne McCord is white hot as she attends the premiere of her directorial debut I Choose held at the Harmony Gold Theater on Tuesday evening (June 10) in Los Angeles.

AnnaLynne‘s boyfriend Dominic Purcell and good pal Alexa PenaVega also attended to show their support. To find out more about the cause, visit iChooseCampaign.com!
“I’d say the greatest challenge was the 1130pm phone call after a whole day of shooting telling me that I lost my location…for 7AM the next morning. I had scouted a beautiful spot up in Malibu and my DP Edd Lukas and I were all set and so happy only to find out we needed to scramble, think of something else and cancel everyone’s call times after they were all asleep,” AnnaLynne shared exclusively to JustJared.com about the toughest challenge shooting the short film, which she also produced, directed, and wrote.
She added, “Thankfully, I had a brainstorm at 4am and rewrote the first half of the film. Edd came over the next morning and we scouted near my home. We found our replacement locations and ultimately movie magic happened. In the end, I rang up my old producer on 90210 and apologized for anytime I complained about schedules or didn’t care for the drives to locations or didn’t understand my scene order. He laughed and said, ‘We producers, normally just shrug our shoulders because, well…. You’re actors.’”
FYI: AnnaLynne is wearing a Alice & Olivia dress. Jessica is wearing a Missguided dress. Alexa is wearing a Missguided jumpsuit."
