While Chic was on the scene at the Cinema Society's Happythankyoumoreplease screening on Wednesday night, the talk was all about the fabulous, confusing, constantly in flux experience of being a twentysomething. Everyone - mostly clad in togs by Tommy Hilfiger, the evening's host - had a couple words of wisdom to dole out about the highs and lows of being a pretty young thing! And, of course, some thoughts on the befallen Galliano situation. 

What if twentysomethings ran the world?
Gabourey Sidibe:
Don't we?
Russell Simmons: Oh, gosh. That's all I can say.
Adrien Grenier: I don’t think they’re equipped to. I think they’re too idealistic.
Pablo Schreiber: We wouldn’t have to worry about social security, so we’d get rid of it. I guess we’re doing that already. But there’d be a lot of insecurity and fear, and the world would be in constant transition.

Would you recommend spending your twenties in New York?
Gabourey Sidibe:
I grew up here, but I think anyone else not from New York that chooses to be here is really brave.
Adrien Grenier: I would, of course. Except, don’t come. But, come. Stay away! The city is ours.

What are you most cynical about?
Josh Radnor:
People’s cynicism.
Pablo Schreiber: I’m cynical about red carpets. But the one at Landmark Sunshine isn’t red, so we’re okay. Now that I have a child, cynicism seems so toxic. It’s important to be optimistic once you become a parent.

What are your thoughts on everything happening with John Galliano?
Malin Akerman: I have no idea. What’s happening?
Juliet Godreche: I’m Jewish, so I guess I’m going to be very aggressive in response!
Zoe Kazan: It’s so awful. I know it’s not fashionable to say I feel bad for him, but he is a very talented man. His opinions are awful and I’m glad people are outraged but I do feel a bit of compassion for him all the same.
