‘Attraction’ action

Dr. Ruth among those taking in romantic comedy

At the “Laws of Attraction” preem Thursday, those laws were working in mysterious ways.

Inside the Loews Astor Plaza, “Queer Eye” culture guy Jai Rodriguez spotted the low-cut purple get-up of Keely Shaye Smith, who is married to the man of the hour. “Oh my God, she’s got great boobs!” he exclaimed. “If I make a pass at Pierce Brosnan‘s wife, I might get fired.”

At the Rainbow Room after the screening, Brosnan was unconcerned. “Maybe he’s turning,” he said coolly.

Suddenly, Will Smith grabbed Brosnan’s shoulder. “This is my hero!” he interjected. “I want to be like him when I grow up.”

Sex guru Dr. Ruth Westheimer offered her law of attraction.

“It’s intelligence,” she said. “This movie shows that you really have to have content to your conversation.”

Her attraction to Brosnan was clearly a physical one, however: “If only he would be older and not married, I would now run after him.”

Others attracted: pic’s Julianne Moore, who enthused about the return of romantic comedies for adults; New Line’s Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye; helmer Peter Howitt; scribe Robert Harling; and producers David Friendly, Marc Turtletaub and Beau St. Clair.
