Nicolas Cage is a sad wine drinker and Maggie Gyllenhaal wears sweatpants at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel last night
Outside of the Soho Metropolitan Hotel, fans gathered to catch a glimpse of Nicolas Cage at his Trespass after-party, and to be perfectly honest, most of the action was happening outside of the Euro beat–heavy clubland inside. We spotted Hysteria’s Maggie Gyllenhaal in “couture” sweatpants and glasses exiting an elevator, seeming eager to distance herself from the afternoons-in-Ibiza party that was happening in the hotel (she was staying there), but apart from these two star sightings, the biggest name we spotted was Massari. Check out the scene and find out what desperate measures some partygoers took to see Cage after the jump.
A club hierarchy was in place, with three coloured wristbands to indicate varying levels of importance: blue, yellow and white. Blue and yellow were the prized accessories, allowing access inside a cordoned-off private room where we saw Cage aerating his wine and looking fairly unimpressed. Earlier on the red carpet, Cage seemed exhausted, but he showed up and cracked a half-hearted smile for photographers because, if you’ve seen any of his recent movies (Drive Angry 3D), you know Nicholas Cage is all about putting in the work, if only half-heartedly. The rest of the night didn’t get any better, and we witnessed white wristband–holders attempting to snap photos on their iPhones through a glass wall that was covered by a decorative wine bottle room divider. Women in impossibly tight dresses leaned close to the tiny crevices between the wine bottles—in what can only be described as a classy manner—attempting to angle their phones to get a blurry snapshot of the only A-lister at the party. We just wish Nicole Kidman had shown up to TIFF this year, because it would have been like seeing a fish out of water.
