It’s not often that art imitates my life, but that’s exactly what happened tonight. I attended a Cannes Cinema Club event hosted by Stella Artois at Tribeca Cinemas which played homage to the original film version of Ocean’s Eleven. The space was transformed to emulate a Vegas casino nightclub from the 1960′s, complete with “guests” Andy Warhol, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn. It was awesome. The Stella flowed freely and it was such fun being transported back in time in present-day Manhattan.
Stella’s iconic chalice.
As I worked on the Ocean’s Eleven remake while working with my former boss, Matt Damon, this event was especially fun for me and conjured up some great memories.

I enjoyed conversations with both “Andy Warhol” and “Audrey Hepburn”, and laughed hysterically after posing with “Dean Martin”, “Sammy Davis, Jr.”, and “Frank Sinatra.”
Oh, “Andy.” What good times we had.
Was wonderful to finally meet “Audrey.” Turns out we both like Tiffany’s!

Loved being part of the “Rat Pack”.

Thanks to Stella and Tribeca for a great night.
