James Franco grabs a man’s tush and Johnny Rotten tells a fan “we’re fucking done here” at Bad Day Magazine’s TIFF party
Bad Day magazine took over the Hoxton on Sunday night to celebrate Gus Van Sant and James Franco’s Memories of Idaho. The party was perhaps one of the least publicized of TIFF, and the strict invite-only policy kept the crowd restricted to Toronto’s hipsters. James Franco was spotted wearing a blue and black–striped Gucci mohair sweater (he is the face of the brand’s fragrance) that enticed a number of women so much they tried to pet it. Franco was also seen grabbing a skinny boy’s behind, which left the women wondering how they could line up for a grope. Franco was overheard speaking with Bruce La Bruce—who was the night’s DJ—about his upcoming interview in the publication. Check out images and find out what we spotted Johnny Rotten dancing to after the jump.
Among the crowd of well-heeled girls, we overheard Van Sant talking with the head web designer for Vanity Fair, Hamish Robertson, and a member of the Bad Day team about high-heeled shoes, and Van Sant offered an amusing anecdote about how he wore platforms to a Duran Duran party and fell flat on his face in front of everyone. Johnny Lydon, better known as Johnny Rotten, was bumming smokes and lighting up in the club, saying, “I’m not your teenage rebel”—Rotten also let a fan get his photo taken with him, but after the posed snapshot he noted to the young man, “We’re fucking done here.” Later on, Rotten was seen dancing along to Madonna (Madge herself was not present), and Val Kilmer (not the graffitied face of him that took over Toronto streets a few years back) was spotted, while it girl and daughter of Lenny, Zoe Kravitz, was seen with boyfriend and Shame star Michael Fassbender.
