Tonight, the Tribeca Film Festival debuted Gardener of Eden, the new film starring Lukas Haas, directed by Kevin Connolly, and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Leo, of course, is the Ecorazzi Holy Grail…a huge star and a huge environmentalist.
He also happens to be notoriously press-shy. ‘Razzi was there on the red carpet to try and catch him…but like the fish that got away, he slipped by with a sparkle and a swish. Let me just say, the air around this man is electric!
Adrian Grenier, another ‘Razzi darling, dropped in to catch the film. He zipped past all of the press, but then when I shouted, “I write for an environmental website!” (or something similarly inane) he paused, gave me the ol’ knuckle-five, and said, “Rock on!” Then he smiled like a Cheshire Cat for my camera.
Who’s feelin’ the love?
Even though the eco-themed portion of the Festival is over, I’m happy to hear encouragement when I tell folks, “I write for an environmental blog.” After all, we’re not in it for the opening night gala glory. We’re in it for the long haul. And it’s good to let guys like Adrian and Leo know that we care more about what they do for this world than who they’re dating. (Unless you’re me. Because I do care about that, too, a little.)
