When it comes to premieres, the after party is usually as star-studded, if not more, than the red carpet.

Monday night’s “The Other Woman” Westwood premiere was much more intimate.

While Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton, Taylor Kinney, Nicki Minaj and Leslie Mann were all on the carpet, Minaj and Mann were the only ones who turned up at the after party, held at the W Westwood.

Fox studio head Jim Gianopulos and Mann’s husband Judd Apatow worked the crowd, which also consisted of CAA’s Kevin Huvane, producer Julie Yorn and Fox execs Steve Asbell and Emma Watts.

“I thought it played through the roof,” Gianopulos told Variety. “I’ve had so many guys come up to me and tell me they loved it. I told them, we sell tickets to men, too,” he joked.

Guests were served a variety of dim sum, spring and vegetable rolls, Caesar salad and a separate room’s worth of desserts, including cake pops and cupcakes. The bar honored Mann’s and Diaz’s characters with two vodka-led drinks called the Carly and Kiss Me Kate.

“I couldn’t tell you who was funniest,” Apatow said of the three leading women, his wife included. “But I thought it was good fun.”

    The trailer makes it appear pretty darn dumb… and I can’t believe Nick Cassavetes directed this… man, he must be desperate for work. It’s looks so dumb…

  2. Kate Upton doesn’t need to be funny.

  3. JAG303 says:

    So, Judd Apatow didn’t answer.. enough of the ‘click-bait’ headlines Variety.. you are above that.
