Madonna stops by LAB

Thesp Hoffman fetes busy singer

Gee, that’s no way to treat a 45-year-old lady!

Monday night at the Daryl Roth Theater, Philip Seymour Hoffman presented Madonna with the LABrynth Theater’s inaugural Dave Hoghe Award, for her support.

Apparently, she had five free minutes between signing her new children’s book, “English Roses,” at Barnes & Noble and a latenight dinner. So why not pick up another honor?

Hoffman said Madonna and the LAB have so much in common,like “courage and longevity.” The 35-year-old actor went on to reveal that watching Madonna, “I found my libido when I was 15. There’s nothing she won’t do,” he gushed.

Madonna shot back, “Thank you for providing me with such an undignified entrance!”

Shortly before her five minutes were up, the author of “Sex” applauded the people honoring her: “There’s not a lot of money in the theater, so I know you’re not motivated by greed.”

And whisk, she left for din-din.

The LAB fund-raiser garnered $40,000, with Eric Bogosian the able auctioneer of everything from Hoffman reading your kids a bedtime story to an elegant dinner with Jimmy Smits and John Ortiz.

Just for fun, the LAB fete ended with celebrity charades. Robin Williams failed to get his team to guess the song “Respect.” More successful at the game were Maya Rudolph, George C. Wolfe, Cynthia Rowley and Edward Norton.
