TIFF Party: Julie Benz contemplates a permanent move to Toronto at the One X One charity bash at AMC Storeys
A slew of Hollywood stars and Toronto socialites headed to AMC Storys this weekend for a gala benefitting One X One, a charity that seeks to improve children’s quality of life. Tom Felton (a.k.a. Draco Malfoy), Patricia Arquette, Julie Benz and society queens Jenna Bitove and Suzanne Rogers all took in a concert by rapper Kardinal Offishall, (although Felton, seeking some quiet near the end of the evening, took his burgundy-suited self to the outdoor smoking section).
Avid do-gooders Arquette and Rogers had long conversation about philanthropy. Our favourite Arquette moment, however, was when we convinced her to yell “I am a dream warrior!” in tribute to her Nightmare on Elm Street roots. Meanwhile, Defiance’s Benz looked like a bombshell in an outfit she described as “mall teen styled by me,” which meant a BCBG dress, Aldo shoes and Zara accessories. The actress, who lives on the Ossington strip while shooting in Toronto, divulged that she and husband Rich Orosco like the city so much that they’re thinking about relocating here—save a yearly stay in Los Angeles to wait out the winter.
