Fox shows off ‘Shoes’

Hanson struts his stuff

WHAT: Los Angeles preem of Fox’s “In Her Shoes”

WHO: Director Curtis Hanson; screenwriter Susannah Grant; pic’s Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette, Shirley MacLaine and Mark Feuerstein; and novelist Jennifer Weiner

WHERE: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, followed by an intimate affair at Spago

IT’S A PHILLY AFFAIR: To honor the film’s Philadelphia backdrop, trays of cheese steaks — from the popular Pat’s King of Steaks (flown in earlier that day) — were passed around to a select group of preem guests who were granted a ticket to the fete.

BALANCING ACT: Hanson may not know how his way around a pair of high heels, but, according to Grant, he aces the high-wire act of “depicting just the right balance of pathos and humor and pain and joy.”
