Beyond the red carpet: Jude Law talks Dom Hemingway and Freida Pinto stuns at the Trump Hotel
Sabrina Maddeaux reports on the
Dom Hemingway press conference and takes in the party scene on night five of TIFF.
Parties: Freida Pinto, L’Oréal Paris beauty ambassador, showed up at a glitzy bash for the brand at the Trump Hotel. Apparently her only rider request was that there be
coconut water available. She stunned in a bright coral dress by Indian label Cue by Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna and worked the room like the pro she is, staying later than expected to finish interviews and take photographs with fans. Up on Queen St. West, models in little black panties and lacy bustiers staged a pillow fight for a photographer outside the after party for
Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story at Cube nightclub. With cool tracks playing like “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe” and “Good Times,” the fittingly-named DJ Filthy Gorgeous had the crowd dancing before 10 p.m. Meanwhile, director Barry Avrich worked the room wearing a velvet blazer and joked that he “felt like Bob Guccione tonight.”

Quotables: Director Richard Sheppard and actors Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir, Emilia Clarke, and Madalina Ghenea answered questions about their outrageous new gangster-comedy
Dom Hemingway at the official TIFF press conference for the film. “The first time I read the script… I hadn’t read anything that had made me laugh as loudly and shocked me quite as much,” said Law when asked why he chose the role. “I liked the challenge and the challenge seemed enormous.” When a reporter asked how Law felt about getting older and playing characters of a certain age (he’s a grandpa in the film), he barely flinched, saying, “I rather relish it; if anyone’s ever going to have a
first daughter, Emilia Clarke’s a good place to start.” When asked about working alongside Law, Clarke joked, “I guarantee I learned a huge amount from him… and he learned absolutely nothing from me.”
