Tonight could be the night everyone’s waited for for 45 years.
Carly Simon and Warren Beatty are each in New York tonight for their own events. Will their paths cross? For four decades everyone has wondered if Carly wrote her mega hit “You’re So Vain” about Warren. Now the truth may come out!
Simon is in town for a huge book signing at the Union Square Barnes and Noble at 7pm. Her “Boys in the Trees,” a New York Times best seller, has come out in paperback this week.
Beatty is here to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Museum of the Moving Image. He’s promoting his new movie, “Rules Don’t Apply,” which opens November 23rd. Warren co-wrote and directed the comedy, in which he plays Howard Hughes. The advance word is very high on Beatty getting nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Warren’s event is on Park Avenue and 63rd St. It’s a black tie dinner that kicks off with cocktails around 6pm. A lot of stars will be there including his wife of 25 years, Annette Bening, plus Candice Bergen, Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker, and so on. But if Carly walks in, that could cause quite a commotion.
All we’re missing is Mick Jagger, who sang back up on the original 1972 recording produced by Richard Perry.
Stay tuned. This could be a fun night in NYC! (Not like the others aren’t!)
