NYC, APRIL 20 TO MAY 1, 2011
Hollywood’s A list gathered in the Big Apple last week for the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival. Founded in 2002 to revive lower Manhattan post-9/11, the festival continues to host glitzy premieres and star-packed parties every year thanks to its edgy, downtown vibe — not to mention the clout of one legendary cofounder. Yes, Robert De Niro, we’re talking to you.
Paul Rudd was a good friend to Orlando Bloom at the April 22 premiere of The Good Doctor, which stars Bloom as a troubled M.D. who falls for one of his patients (played by Elvis Presley‘s granddaughter, Riley Keough).
It was a red-carpet family reunion for the Osbourne clan — Kelly, Sharon, Ozzy, and Jack — at the April 24 world premiere of the documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, which Jack produced.
Angels Crest costars Kate Walsh, Jeremy Piven, and Mira Sorvino looked heavenly at the April 22 after-party for their small-town crime drama.
”When they ask you to open the festival, the least you can do is play a few songs,” says Elton John, who posed with musicians T Bone Burnett and the Mighty Hannibal and performed a mini-concert April 20 after a screening of The Union, Cameron Crowe‘s doc about John.
Native New Yorkers Marisa Tomei and Ben Stiller showed their support for the doc Sun City Picture House (Coexec-produced by TRON: Legacy star Olivia Wilde), which depicts the building of a movie theater in post-quake Haiti.
”Whenever I have a big dramatic scene, I always think, ‘What are they going to do with this on Saturday Night Live?”’
— Festival cofounder Robert De Niro, during a discussion with NBC’s Brian Williams
”It gives you an appreciation for how hard people are working on either side of the camera. Plus, you get to tell everyone what to do!”
— Julia Roberts, on exec-producing Jesus Henry Christ, which debuted April 23
