Celebs salute ‘Next Big’ freebie fest in H’wood

Wayans brother philosophizes freely at soiree

Free food and drinks lured Damon and Marlon Wayans to Details magazine’s “Next Big Thing” party at the Chateau Marmont on Friday.

“There is nothing better then free,” Marlon said. “Some people want to free the whales, some people want to free the dolphins, some people want to free James Brown; you know what, I just want free shit.”

He added, “I wish I got free stuff when I was poor when I really needed it, but now that I got money I don’t mind free because I still got a poor man’s mentality.”

The “OC’s” Benjamin McKenzie, one of those anointed by the mag, said he didn’t take such pronouncements too seriously.

“Ultimately, your career is determined by all sorts of things — luck, hard work, talent, ambition — but it’s not really determined, I don’t think, too much by publicity.”

Fellow “OC” thesps Adam Brody and g.f. Rachel Bilson were also on hand, along with Nick Stahl and Lindsay Lohan.
