Banderas/Jolie starrer furnishes conversation
Taking its cue from the pic, MGM furnished the after-party for “Original Sin” with lavish beds, which were popular with the guests, and featured sinful desserts and rich liqueurs Tuesday at the DGA.
Star Antonio Banderas endorsed the choice of furniture saying, “You know, the bed is a very important and useful thing. I know it is in my house.”
He downplayed the bed’s extensive use in the pic, saying, “We’re talking about two married people, in love, making love. It bothers me much more to kill someone in a movie … kiss not kill.”
His co-star, Angelina Jolie with Billy Bob Thornton, ducked out soon after pic unspooled, but among those at the after-party were MGM honchos Alex Yemenidjian, Chris McGurk, Michael Nathanson, Alex Gartner, Elizabeth Carroll and Bob Levin;writer-director Michael Cristofer, producers Denise Di Novi and Carol Lees; exec producers Sheldon Abend, Ashok Amritraj and David Hoberman; pic’s Thomas Jane; plus guests Jacqueline Bisset, Wes Craven, Majandra Delfino, Esai Morales and Sylvester Stallone.
