The “Interstellar” secret screening and dinner at the ’21’ Club drew a stellar crowd Sunday night, I am told by some of the invitees. Lorne Michaels didn’t make it, and Charlie Rose only came for dinner. But everyone else on Peggy Siegal’s guest list for Brad Grey’s event considered the night of Paramount importance. Director Chris Nolan, as well as stars Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway were there, ‘natch.
And the heavy hitters included an eclectic group: Oscar winning directors Steve McQueen and Ang Lee, Oscar winner Susan Sarandon, plus Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Alison Williams, Laura Prepon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tony Gilroy, Jon Bon Jovi, Darren Aronofsky, Noah Baumbach, Helena Christensen, Cynthia McFadden, and Robin Roberts.
Did they like it? Yeah, they liked it. What’s not to like? You always get nice ice cream sundaes at ’21’, too.
