‘Butter’ hosts preem party

Event took place at the Double Seven Meat District

There were Daiquiris aplenty but no butter sculptures at the Double Seven Meat District after-party for Radius-TWC’s “Butter” preem.

Regarding Hollywood’s first-ever up-close look at a previously low-key enterprise, “Butter” star Jennifer Garner set the record straight Thursday night at AMC Lincoln Square theater in Gotham.

“Butter sculpting is a huge deal,” said the thesp. “When we say that more people saw butter sculpting at the Iowa State Fair than saw Celine Dion’s farewell concert tour in Vegas and the Super Bowl combined, we mean that! It is that popular.”

The satiric, politically oriented comedy originated on screenwriter Jason Micallef’s post-college road trip where, in the midst of a Des Moines heatwave, he found himself at Butter Hall.

Butter sculpting is “pretty funny,” the scribe said. “But up close they’re great! These are talented people. You wonder why they don’t pick up a chunk of marble instead of marble, but why not?”
