This year's Toronto Film Festival was made up of some pretty choice characters.

I'm not speaking only about the characters we watched on screen (there were certainly some doozies there), but also the characters -- in real life -- we witnessed on the red carpets, at the press conferences and on the streets of Toronto in 2012.

These people who make up the films we know and love are fascinating in their own right, from Kristen Stewart, emerging from one of the biggest entertainment scandals of the year, to Tom Hanks, an A-list actor who was less-than-impressed with the treatment he received at the festival.

Here are my top 10 moments from this year's TIFF -- may next year's be just as dramatic.
