‘Words’ with friends

Helming duo pleased at preem

There was a familial feel Tuesday night as the cast and crew of CBS Films’ “The Words” gathered at Hollywood’s stylish Lexington Social House to toast the film’s premiere.

Zoe Saldana wandered out on the patio early on in the evening. The thesp said she was drawn to the film “not only because of the script, but then I met (writer-directors) Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, and they were these young cats that captured a sensitive story and did it so beautifully.

“I was very curious to work with them,” Saldana added.

Klugman, who previously partnered with Sternthal to pen “Tron: Legacy,” was equally complimentary of his “Words” collaborators. “There were a lot of friends going to work to make this film,” Klugman said.

Sternthal added that the support of CBS Films, which acquired the film at Sundance, created a dream-come-true situation for the pair.

“For them to believe in the film in this way is unbelievable,” Sternthal said. “I mean, you can’t dream of this as a first-time filmmaker, and if you did, you’d be an asshole.”
