Getting Their Due
First comes The Hangover, then comes parenthood? That’s a familiar enough trajectory, we guess—and it’s the one that director Todd Phillips has taken, following his smash-hit lost-in-Vegas comedy with a new Zach Galifianakis flick, Due Date. Robert Downey, Jr., stars with Galifianakis as a man desperate to make it across the country in time for the birth of his kid.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Mayer, and Narciso Rodriguez all turned out for the Cinema Society and DKNY Jeans’ screening last night, with Alexandra and Theodora Richards and Debbie Harry joining in for the after-party at Lavo afterwards. Even a few real-life parents took the evening off to celebrate. “We are just relaxing before we relieve our babysitters,” said designer Rachel Roy, who arrived with Iman and Drena De Niro, after winning Brand Launch of the Year at the ACE Awards earlier in the evening. “And we are here for Robert—hello, in Tropic Thunder he had swagger like none other.”
Courtney Love (left, with Russell Simmons) was also eager to catch up with Downey—in particular, to ask him about his workout routine. “I don’t see Downey anywhere. He is doing a martial art—Wang Chang or something—and I wanted to ask him about it,” she said. “I haven’t been sleeping well and I am wondering if I might need more exercise.”
