Spotted! Josh Brolin smoking inside at the Thompson

Spotted! Josh Brolin smoking inside at the Thompson

The stars were clouded under a brief haze last night at King West’s Thompson Hotel, where Josh Brolin popped by the exclusive Fox Searchlight-Vanity Fair-Belvedere party. Sitting in one of the open bottle-service booths, the bearded actor engaged in what appeared to be an intense and hilarious conversation with a friend (he’s known for his gesticulations) and lit up a smoke without a second thought. Staffers and partiers didn’t stop him as he ashed into the small stack of white dishes set out next to a tray of snacks.

OK, smoking indoors is not much of a to-do (Sean Penn did it at a festival press conference back in 2006), but at a TIFF that has, so far, been scandal-free, we’ll take what we can get. Where’s Mickey Rourke when you need him?
