Marie Claire's Sergio Kletnoy reports on the Hearst Tower's earth shattering visitor!!!

 

"Last night, THE BOSS, Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, invited January cover girl Angelina Jolie and the cast of In the Land of Blood and Honey, her directorial debut about the Bosnian War for an exclusive screening and Q&A at the Hearst Tower. You could hear a pin drop—and a thousand camera flashes—when Angelina entered the building. If it’s possible, she’s even more beautiful in person than on screen. The last of the great Hollywood superstars. This was truly the biggest thing to hit the Hearst Tower since it opened its doors in 2006. Angie arrived wearing a black pant suit from L’Agence, Cole Haan Nike air pumps (yes, Cole Haan!), and David Yurman jewelry; THE BOSS rocked a brown suede Prada dress, a Kara Ross necklace and Hearts on Fire diamond studs. After 30 minutes of red carpet interviews and photos with JoCo, Hearst chief executive Frank Bennack, Hearst Magazines president David Carey, MC publisher Nancy Berger-Cardone and MC’s fashion director Nina Garcia, Angie and THE BOSS made their way into the theater to introduce the movie, after which Joanna put on her journalist cap and interviewed the A-lister with her incredible cast. At one point, Angie was brought close to tears by a Bosnian reporter who shared her story during the Q&A portion of the night.. Joanna has been raving about the film for the last 3 weeks. She’d seen it twice and made it required viewing for the MC staff. My 6 second review: moving and oh so real; it left what I’m sure will be a very lasting impression. Inside scoop: During the screening, Angie, JoCo and her husband, author Peter Godwin, and the cast slipped out for dinner at one of THE BOSS’ favorite spots, Quality Meats. What I wouldn’t have done to be a fly on that wall. Be sure to check out my column on Friday for more details."
