Now that the Lakers season is over, the Hollywood Bowl is Jack Nicholson‘s new hangout. Or at least it was on Tuesday night when opera singer Renee Fleming performed.
At the industry-heavy after-bash, Nicholson confessed his love for opera. “I’ve seen a lot of it,” he said. “It’s very exotic.”
Benicio Del Toro admitted that his knowledge of opera is minimal, but he nevertheless rose to the occasion when Nicholson called.
“This is the first time I have been to the opera, and I have the honor to say that I was invited by Jack Nicholson,” Del Toro said.
Even Fleming, the night’s star, couldn’t believe the crowd she drew in.
“Tonight was absolutely surreal,” Fleming said, expressing surprise that Nicholson and pal Warren Beatty are so knowledgeable about opera.
