At the Aug. 4 afterparty at Boulevard3 for Screen Gems’ “Takers,” the only nod to the ongoing recession was that the burst of money that fluttered onto the dance floor was fake.
“In Hollywood, you know, when things are going good, there’s a lot of celebration!” said “Takers” star T.I. The singer performed alongside Keri Hilson and castmate Chris Brown after the ArcLight premiere, much to the delight of the stylish crowd in attendance. Among the fans was Snoop Dogg, in his signature shades, grooving at a private table with a peculiar-smelling cigar.
Hayden Christensen, who fought, shot, and starred alongside Brown and T.I. in the bank-robbers pic, liked what he saw on the bigscreen. “I’m always proud of my bruises!” said the actor of his squirm-inducing fight scenes. “It makes you feel like you earned it.”
