Star Studded Event

As I mentioned last week, there are SO many events going on during Oscar week in LA that it boggles the mind. While I'm stoked with the pictures I was lucky enough to get, on a few of the days I definitely felt like I picked the wrong event to attend. Still, sometimes it's fun to just be somewhere and see all the people. One such event was Friday night when we hit the CAA party. The star power there was out of this world. First up? Vince Vaughn. He's tall! Of course he didn't acknowledge us at all, but it was fun to see him. So, we're standing there at a barricade when a car pulls up in front of us. In the back seat, with the light on, sat Bette Midler. Just sitting there. Less than a foot away. As soon as someone said her name, she clicked off the light so as not to let the "peasants" look upon her. You could tell she was a piece of work, but that's what made it all the more fun. We yelled stuff like, "We're right here, Bette. We'll see you on the way out!"Less than five minutes after Bette went in, Meryl Street drove up. My friend is dying for a picture with her and kept going, "Let's do this, Meryl!"
A few minutes later, Julia Roberts got out of a car. Julia Roberts! She, at least, waved at the fans. I appreciated that.
As Julia was making her way to the door, Sandra Bullock showed up and they embraced. At this point they'd all arrived within 10 or 15 minutes of each other and my head was spinning from that much star power. Also at the party? Salma Hayek, Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz (just to name a few). We joked that Meryl was inside giving English lessons to Penelope. Hey, we'd been out there awhile and you start to get punchy. I haven't laughed that hard in a long, long time. Fun night!
