I guess child-hating is not "Hollywood" after all, just "LA." Because from the generosity with which they are supporting such a worthy cause, it's obvious that our New York celebrities just love themselves some kids. Even the ones who appear in nervewracking deadchildpanic movies together.
From the NY Observer's Sara Vilkomerson comes this heads up on a benefit next Monday:
All the cool celebrities are back from schwag-hogging in Park City:Can't help you there, but if you buy up enough of the $350 seats, maybe you can convince Paul Rudd to recreate his famous pillow-smothering scene from Neil Labute's off-Broadway version of Goodnight Moon.
Julianne Moore and hot husband/director Bart Freundlich (Freundlich? I hardly know the guy!) [ed. note: I'm sure he is hot, and it's true, I don't know him, but this is actually Sara's quote. Just sayin'. -ed.] host the 10th anniversary of Bellevue Hospitalĺ─˘s ĺ─˙Reach Out and Readĺ─¨ program, and fellow actors with indie cred such as Marcia Gay Harden, Samuel L. Jackson (Ms. Mooreĺ─˘s co-star in the upcoming Freedomland), Billy Crudup and John C. Reilly will read from childrenĺ─˘s books. Sweet! But weĺ─˘d give anything to hear Christopher Walken read The Pokey Little Puppy.
Silent auction starts at 6:30. Tickets and Event details are at Children of Bellevue [childrenofbellevue.org]
