The Love-ly Homeowner: Courtney Snags Village Pad for Daughter-------
Turns out Marc Jacobs isn’t the only one who’s been house-hunting in the West Village. At the after-party for last night’s Paramount Pictures and Cinema Society-sponsored screening of The Lovely Bones, Courtney Love told us a new place is on her Christmas list, too—not for herself, but for her daughter. “I’m getting my child a mortgage,” she said. “She split time between New York and L.A. growing up, but she’s a New Yorker. It’s a house in the West Village, which is all she wants in life.” Good to know young Frances Bean can knock on Marc and Lorenzo’s door for the proverbial cup of sugar, but as for Love herself, she’s hitting the road: “I gotta go on tour,” she said. Well, she’ll have a place to crash in New York, at least.
Meanwhile, Susan Sarandon—who plays a whiskey-swigging, chain-smoking grandmother in the film—made a recent real-estate deal herself: The actress is one of the backers of the recently opened SPiN Ping-Pong club, though she’s the first to admit she’s not yet a pro. “I’m not good. I’m more of a propagandist than a player,” the actress admitted. Others have apparently been less modest. “I’d like to see George Clooney play Jamie Foxx, because they both think they’re really good. Ed Norton has also said he’s really good,” Sarandon said with a sly smile. Now there’s a tourney we’d line up to see.
