Today in celebrity news: Some staid reports from the post-Golden Globes party scene, Will and Kate announce a vague due date, and Ann Romney says no to reality TV.
Curious what went on at the positively wild Golden Globes after-parties? Well, there surprisingly aren't that many party reports out there, and the ones that do exist paint a pretty tame picture. Entertainment Weekly, never one for the hard gossip, details the staid HBO shindig, with Julianne Moore and Sarah Paulson dancing in the lobby while Jane Fonda holds court at a table and is visited by Sally Field and Jeremy Irons. Yawn. Then it's on to the "much younger crowd" at the Weinstein Company party, which had a DJ spinning hot pop tunes (as opposed to the jazz music at the HBO bash) and Selena Gomez dancing with her friends Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson. But also Quentin Tarantino was there, so it's not like it was the junior prom or anything. At the Fox party, Nicholas Brody and his son Chris, from Homeland, did the Gangnam dance. (Pictured, above) The NBC-Universal-Focus Features party hosted both Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway, so there was a lot very controlled poise going on at that soiree. And at the Warner Bros. party, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner sneaked out around midnight, while other actors, even TV ones with early call times, stayed late. Connor Paolo, who played gay Eric on Gossip Girl and is now on Revenge, said he had a 6 a.m. call time but that he wasn't worried. "I’m a spry guy!" he told a reporter. So that's the big gossip out of the Warner Bros. party. Gay Eric is a spry guy. Nothing Chace Crawford didn't already know. Hopefully some more sordid party details will emerge as the day wears on, but really we'll have to wait for the extensively documented Vanity Fair Oscars party for the true dirt. That's the real party where weird stuff happens. All this stuff is just preamble. Anyway. We hope Connor Paolo made it to set on time this morning. It all depends on how spry he really was, I suppose. [Entertainment Weekly]
One Golden Globes party did get a little too rowdy, one thrown at the Chateau Marmont by W magazine and hotelier Andre Balazs. Sure it was a pre-Golden Globes party on Friday, but that still counts, doesn't it? Police were called to the Chateau when the music got too loud around 11 p.m., but the party continued in the hotel lobby (just like R. Kelly said) and in the famous Chateau garden anyway. Guests included Jack Black, Axl Rose, John Legend, Daniel Day-Lewis, Kirsten Dunst, Garrett Hedlund, Brett Ratner, Marion Cotillard, Damian Lewis, Lana del Rey, and Balazs lady friend Chelsea Handler. So that is quite a crowd! Sort of a cool crowd? Sort of a mature crowd? Sort of an artsy crowd? It sounds way cooler than, say, spry Eric disco-dancing it up with Jennifer Garner last night, anyway. Plus the police came. Even adults know that that's what makes a cool party, right? So, well done, W magazine. At least one shindig this weekend knew how to get down. [Page Six]
