In the company of his ‘Friends’

LaBute draws a crowd for sequel

Monday night’s preem of Gramercy Pictures’ relationship saga “Your Friends and Neighbors” at the Directors Guild packed a starry punch, with friends showing their support for writer-director Neil LaBute’s follow-up to his debut, last year’s “In the Company of Men.”

The darkly comic pic inspired post-show dialogue and lobby-loungers including Diane Keaton, Nathan Lane, Elisabeth Shue, Patricia Arquette and “Chasing Amy” director Kevin Smith. Post-show festivities continued down the Strip at the Mondrian’s hipster paradise, The Skybar.

The outdoor nightery’s celestial setting made poolside navigation hazardous as guests tried to balance heaped plates and glasses of bubbly. Upstairs, however, flashbulbs burned for high-wattage couple Jason Patric (who co-stars and produces) and supermodel Christy Turlington, while Cameron Diaz, Edward Norton and David Schwimmer schmoozed separately.

A much blonder and trimmer Aaron Eckhart was almost unrecognizable having lost the dorky ‘do and extra pounds required of his role as a well-meaning, but fumbling hubby. Pic’s other co-stars, Ben Stiller, Catherine Keener, Amy Brenneman and Nastassja Kinski were also on hand as well as producer Steve Golin, Polygram’s Michael Kuhn and Gramercy’s Russell Schwartz.
