SmartWater and Bungalow 8 threw a party that was tough to get into at the Burroughes building
Last night’s Creative Artists Agency jam at the Burroughes building, sponsored by Smart Water and hosted by Bungalow 8, seemed to be where every celeb ended up after their various screenings and parties. It’s no wonder, because the CAA reps some of the world’s biggest stars. Michael Fassbender (whose exposed penis in Shame seems to be the talk of the town) finally showed up in Toronto after rumours he wouldn’t be coming, and James Franco, Jessica Chastain, Gerard Butler, Emile Hirsch, Glenn Close, Ethan Hawke, Colin Farrell, Dave Matthews and Emily Blunt were all in attendance in between any number of stops—Franco was feted by Bad Day magazine at the Hoxton with Gus Van Sant earlier Sunday night, and Blunt was spotted with Ewan McGregor at the Your Sister’s Sister dinner. Of course, we couldn’t see any of them, since they, like the cool kids in high school, spent the evening smoking on the rooftop, if they themselves could even get upstairs. Check out the scene after the jump. Franco had a cadre of 20-something hipsters clinging on for dear life to get upstairs (it worked) while we bemusedly listened to a myriad of excuses: “I’m a really important producer in L.A.,” “I’m just going to the front to ask the bouncer a question,” and a whole slew of “Don’t you know who I am?”–type queries. Blunt decided not to wait for the notoriously slow elevator and walked the six flights up to the top, where she proceeded to smoke furiously on the roof (she must do the StairMaster at the gym). As we were leaving, we saw Farrell and Matthews waiting for the elevator but decided not to bother heading back up, because even the brightest stars (Matthews, naturally) had trouble getting up, and instead we went down (the stairs) and out (the door).
