Gerard Butler makes the ladies swoon at The Iceman After Party
Gerard Butler at TIFF 2012Event: The Iceman After Party at Virgin Mobile Arts & Cinema Centre
Most A-list guest: Tie: Chris Evans, Gerard Butler
Overheard: “Does anyone know why Gerard Butler is here?”
Best drink: Energy drink & Vodka
The scene: It was last call at the Virgin Mobile takeover of the Storys building and, like the multitude of stars that graced its twin red carpets throughout the last week, the mobile company pulled out all the stops for its final hurrah: a post-screening, two-story fete for the Chris Evans, Winona Ryder gangster flick, The Iceman.
As has become custom, the room filled up with door watchers around midnight, followed shortly by the talent — which also included Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Shannon (who plays a prohibition officer on the show, but made a b-line to the bar as soon as he arrived to enjoy a well-deserved red wine) and Ray Liotta – quietly making their way into the mix.
Also making appearances were two bad boys of cinema: the seemingly ubiquitous Stephen Dorff and, in his surprise TIFF 2012 debut, Gerard Butler.
Dorff seemed to float around the room, mugging and nearly causing the place to burn down when a photographer accidently kicked a burning candle onto a wood table to take a photo of Dorff and Shannon together.
Butler, meanwhile, was more than happy to accommodate a series of fetching advances from the female partygoers, who appeared to swoon en masse when news of his arrival swept across the two-story jam.
For this nearly knocked-out reporter though, it was the 2 a.m. buffet that was the most welcome surprise of them all.
