For the April 27 bash celebrating the final episode of The X-Files, L.A.’s House of Blues was transformed into an otherworldly House O’Green. The lime hue provided a perfect backdrop for a fete featuring glowing martinis (”It’s an Absolut Truth martini,” said show creator Chris Carter. ”Make sure you get one with the [floating] alien”) and silver-suited extraterrestrials who greeted Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny (who arrived late), Annabeth Gish, and Mitch Pileggi. The topic of the night: May 19’s two-hour send-off, but all Anderson would reveal was that the final scene ”was so momentous, my brain can’t even grasp onto it.” Meanwhile, on April 29, close encounters of the arachnid kind were had at the Mann Village and the Bruin in Westwood during the premiere of Spider-Man. Among the web browsers were star Tobey Maguire, Adam Sandler, Cuba Gooding Jr., Matthew Perry, and Will Smith, who boasted that ”Ali could easily squash Spider-Man in the ring.” Also on hand were costars Kirsten Dunst and Willem Dafoe, who came dressed, appropriately, in a goblin-green suit.
