The official Met Gala after party was on and popping at the Sinclair Mansion until well into the early Tuesday morning hours, and some of it’s latest guests were some of the best. Even though the crowd on 79th Street was a little intense what with groups of fans running back and forth across the two way four lanes trying to meet people, it was still fun to see who was showing up and leaving.
Among some of the stars I saw outside the Sinclair Mansion were Rihanna, Kristen Stewart, Gerard Butler, Elizabeth Banks (who fell coming down the steps – scary!), Lily Collins, Carey Mulligan, Dianna Agron, Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, and Florence Welch. That is just naming a few, by the way.
Since the crowd outside of the Sinclair Mansion was so out of control very few people actually stopped for pictures. To no one’s surprise because she is quite possibly the kindest person in the world, Jessica Chastain was one of those few. Not only did Jessica come over to the fans but she took individual time with so many, giving out hugs and listening to their adoration confessions for her. Brian told her about how he and I had started a ‘Jessica Chastain Movie Club’ and recently watched “Take Shelter” to which she literally squealed with excitement over. I have to say that of all the celebrities I have ever met, Jessica Chastain has not changed one single bit since I first met her in August 2011 when she told me I was a fellow ginger. I will never not love her!
As the party inside the Sinclair Mansion seemed to come to a close, or at the very least die down substantially, comedic power couple Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann were some of the last few guests to leave. In my excitement I totally missed out on an opportunity to gush over everything Judd Apatow has ever helped create like ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘Knocked Up‘, and most recently ‘Girls‘, but was thrilled when he agreed to pose for a quick picture. After the picture was taken he told me, “I lost my wife..”, but I had seen her get escorted to their waiting car by security and helped point him the right direction. I think it was a fair trade off!
