25th Annual Celebration of Sundance Films Gala

I got here a bit late as I was shooting an earlier event which I will feature at a later date. Got here about 9PM, and had to wait until 10:30PM as the folks began to pile out. During this time a limo driver filled me in on who was inside and who left early. He said the first hour of the gala was cocktail hour with celebrity guest servers including Uma Thurman, Paul Newman, Matthew Modine, Claire Danes (who I would've love to have gotten), Stanley Tucci, and my buddy Steve Buscemi. As they left I got Phoebe Cates and Kevin Kline. Then Kathy Bates; she looks amazing. I screwed up the first shot, as I was telling her how great she looks, and she answered as I took the shot. She started laughing and said that one isn't going to look good, take another one. OK so I didn't get to see Madonna this week, but I did get to see the guy who she poured hot wax on during sex in the movie Dangerous Game. He's always been reluctant to pose, as you can imagine, but tonight there were only two of us there and he obliged.Kyle MacLachlan - Whoppeee! I have seen him a couple times before, but now that I am into his character on Desperate Housewives I was really excited to see him. I of course went nuts, saying how excited I was that now that Laurie Metcalf has been killed, his character could stay on a while longer. He said maybe, maybe not, we shall see. Then I remembered, hmmm hey you're in NYC and the show is filmed in LA, is there something you're not telling me? Andrew Shue - Ohhhhhh Billlyyyy Alyson would say. He looks the same, as cute as ever!! Dustin Hoffman lately he has been hiding from the paparrazzi wearing a bag. I just got a shot of him and a bag would be an improvement. How glum can you get?George Lucas what a catch. This guy is reluctant to get a shot of, and now that he has announced his retirement he will be more reclusive then ever. Before she came out, her body guard, driver spilled his guts on where she lives (Town), what she's up to, the new series she's developing and a bit about her life. But I am gonna keep mum about most of it. Sometimes I am surprised about what limo drivers give up to us fans. Glen had a broken foot, but she was still fairly quick on it telling me feel free to take my picture, but I'm not going to stop. She did look my way, and that meant the world to this shot. Darn I didn't have enough time to grovel about Dangerous Liasons. I hear its her favorite movie too!!
