Spotted! Woody Harrelson, Ryan Phillippe, Harvey Weinstein and Bruce Springsteen
In the pre-TIFF weeks, everyone (ourselves included) wondered whether the new Bell Lightbox Theatre and a few shiny King Street hot spots would result in a mass uptown exodus. But now that the fest is in full swing, it’s obvious we underestimated the familiarity factor. Apparently there really is no place like Yorkville, or at least that’s what we’re left to conclude after spotting an arsenal of A-listers at the dustiest of de rigueur dwellings, the Four Seasons. Here, a rundown of the evening’s encounters.
10:15: We arrive at the Avenue bar and immediately spot Woody Harrelson looking quite cozy with an unidentified female.
10:30: Ryan Phillippe spotted leaving the bar. He is short.
11:02: A trip to the washroom proves fruitful when we come face to face with Harvey Weinstein on the escalators. We’re going down, he’s going up. No one else is in sight. We feel the need to seize the moment and opt for the always appropriate “’Sup, Harvey?” He kind of growled, kind of said hello back. It was glorious.
11:25: We are about to call it a night when the one, the only, THE BOSS walks right by our table. He is with his red-headed woman Patti Scialfa. In a state of true star-shock, we muster up our best “Hi, Bruce.” He says hi back before darting to a more protected part of the room. And now we can die happy.
