glamour

i went to a charity event to support the old vic last night, the english theater where kevin spacey is the artistic director.

it was a star-studded event. in attendance: kevin, BILL CLINTON!, mary stuart masterson (who looked amazing and had the cutest cream colored jacket on), alec baldwin (who was rude, angry-looking, and on his cell phone most the time), sam mendes, gabriel byrne, and on, and on.

i wore a little black dress, my new favorite shoes, an some red hoop earrings.

I've heard kevin can be difficult to work with and a bit curmudgeony but he was sweet and energetic and so funny all evening as he was trying to get higher bids for some of the prizes up for auction.

the cater-waiters were good looking, but i have to say without a doubt, having been at a few events with bill clinton now, the best looking people in the room were the president's security detail. he has some HOT men keeping watch over him. they're always so serious and tough looking and they make me want to do bad things so that they're forced to restrain me.

oooh! and they also gave the anya hindmarch "i am not a plastic bag" bags to the winners at the auction. v. cool.

Alec was probably on the phone with his PR people after that phone message to his daughter leaked.

I've heard that Kevin doesn't like to give autographs either, but I got one after seeing his incredible performance in Moon for the Misbegotten, along with a "thank you." He is intelligent and witty and one of the few celebrities that doesn't bore me to tears.
