"Flags Of Our Fathers" Special New York Screening

I think one of the questions I get the most from people is how, how do you find find all these events; well I do alot of research often into the middle of the night, and occassionally Page Six/Liz Smith/Cindy Adams makes it easy for me and they drop a little tidbit like this in the NY Post on Monday.... RYAN PHILLIPPE is said to give the performance of his young career in the eagerly awaited Clint Eastwood/Paul Haggis Iwo Jima movie, "Flags of Our Fathers." The film, which also stars Paul Walker, Jesse Bradford, Adam Beach, Jamie Bell, Barry Pepper and John Benjamin Hickey, has a Cinema Society screening tonight at the Tribeca Grand Screening Room. A party follows at the Penthouse of the Soho Grand. Zenith is co-hosting. These Cinema Society events are always agreeably intimate, and celeb eye-candy abounds. ...I show up about 6:45PM, the arrivals come 7:15PM. Barry Pepper was also in another great war movie - Saving Private Ryan Jesse Bradford famous from the Swimfan movie. Hot, wonderful, promised to come back and pose for photos, but first walked his mom and dad to their limo. Joseph Cross - You may not know this guy from Smallville, you might get to know him from Flags of our Fathers, but you will certainly know him after "Running With Scissors" debuts next month. The Mane event, Reese Witherspoon. I was completely shocked she showed up at the screening, although I should have known when I arrived at the event and their were 20 paparazzi's lined up to shoot arrivals. The happy couple posed for about 5 shots and then ran into the screening. About 20 minutes laters they left without watching the show. Later I went to the After Party, or AP as the lingo goes on the street. Now I am not one to gossip, but I hear the two sweethearts exchanged words upstairs, with Reese telling Ryan, "I don't know what you mean by saying I am embarrasing you, how could you say I am embarrasing you?" Then the partygoer, who was standing close to me while recounting the story to a friend on the phone, said that Ryan stormed back into the room with the bar and Reese went into the bathroom. About 15 minutes after this incident, they exited the Soho Grand Hotel, where the party was held. She walked ahead of him with a smirked, he looked like he just sucked on a lemon. I was kinda sad to hear they had a little fight, but I saw A Star is Born, and unless this movie is a hit for Ryan, this could continue to be that classic scenario. The Guests: "THIS SATIRE ON HOLLYWOOD AMBITIONS CONTAINS ANY NUMBER OF THIGH-SLAPPING LAUGH LINES! The actors, one and all, land their gags. Johnny Galecki couldn't be more appealing, the critics say of The Little Dog Laughed. LDL was a hot ticket off-broadway earlier this year selling out nightly. It's a play thinly based on a Tom Cruise character, and unlike TC, JG shows more than a little skin on the Boards. After the successful springtime run the Little DogLaughed has legs and has moved to Broadway. Previews begin Oct 26, with the Opening on Nov. 13; I saw Johnny at the screening and later at the AP. I asked him about the play, and he said he was having fun and looking forward to Opening Night on Broadway. Erika Christensen the obsessive girl from Swimfan and currently in Six Degrees, which I really wanted to love because its shot in NYC, but I think is so out there I just can't grasp the concept nor can remember when it is on TV. Any guesses?Rosario Dawson, happy to pose, what's up with that wink? (not Jason behind her). She had glasses on before I shot the picture and asked me to wait so she could take them off. I was the only photographer to get the shot, as she dashed into her car. The photographers were complaining, saying that before Rent, Sin City, and the dozen other films, she also posed and was friendly to them. Later at the AP she went in through the kitchen and foiled the paparazzi once again. Maybe she wasn't feeling pretty.Lauren Bacall, I am always thrilled everytime I see her. Lately it's weekly. The only person I see more at these NYC screenings, or openings is... Sarah Jessica Parker. Love her, love her, love her. Love Sex in the City. Behind her is John Benjamin Hickey who stars in the movie. On the right is her bodyguard. Later as she left the screening, she signed several autographs (graphs) for the dealers (people who sell photos on ebay, or who collect graphs for an agency who will turn around and sell on Ebay or at trade shows). As she was getting in the car, I asked how Matt and his collarbone were doing. She stopped in her tracks, turned to me with a great big smile and thanked me for asking, and he is 90% better. Almost as good as new. Very sweet. I turned to a dealer and said, how much for that photo she just signed, he said $50, I passed. This women is a Goddess!! The coat is awesone, but didn't do anything for her figure after she bundled up. I just saw this on TMZ.com, I am not on screen as I was standing next to the TMZ guy the entire time he was filming, but at one point you can hear me thank Elizabeth Banks for allowing me to take her photo..." TMZ's cameras were outside the celeb-packed NY soiree after the screening of "Flags Of Our Fathers" at the SoHo Grand Hotel on Tuesday night, and we were able to catch all the action going down."

My sense is that Sarah Jessica Parker is one classy lady.
