Partygoers howl at ‘Coyote’ bow

Bello knows the real thing is wilder

NEW YORK — Gothamites strapped on their six-shooters and Stetsons Monday night for a wet and wild hoe-down at the Roseland for Jerry Bruckheimer’s latest Touchstone pic, “Coyote Ugly.”

With high spirits — both literal and figurative — the cast, headed by stars Piper Perabo and Maria Bello, boogied to music ranging from Guns N’ Roses to the Charlie Daniels Band.

Meanwhile, bartenders from the actual Coyote Ugly (located in the East Village) baptized the crowd with squirts of bourbon from atop the makeshift party bar.

Bruckheimer was smiles all night, but admitted he never actually went to the famed watering hole.

“I never visited the bar ‘Coyote Ugly’ is based on (but) I read about it in Esquire and decided to make the film,” Bruckheimer said.

Bello, who plays the bar’s steely owner, sized up the scene: “I have the most experience as a bartender. Whatever you see in the movie, you can be sure that the real thing is even wilder.”

After the screening at the Ziegfeld, she and fellow cast members Perabo, Tyra Banks, Izabella Miko, Bridget Moynahan, Adam Garcia and LeAnn Rimes joined helmer David McNally, producer Chad Oman, Disney topper Peter Schneider and execs Dick Cook, Nina Jacobson and marketing co-prexies Geoffrey Ammer and Oren Aviv, guests including Hugh Jackman, ‘N Sync, Heather Headley, Mathew Modine, Carrie-Anne Moss and CAA agent Patrick Whitesell at the party.
