MANHATTAN — Actor Keanu Reeves was in the East Village Monday night, dressed like a sexy cat burglar out to steal women’s hearts.
The "Matrix" star was clad in all black with a ski cap covering his chin-length locks for the screening of "Henry’s Crime," which is, fittingly, about a bank heist.
Rocker Courtney Love and "30 Rock" actor Judah Friedlander also showed for the Cooper Square Hotel event.
In Midtown, "My Cousin Vinny" star Marissa Tomei appeared to be aging backwards as she celebrated her new play "Marie and Bruce," which will open Tuesday at the New Group theater on West 42nd Street.
Tomei was joined by actors Emily Mortimer, Sam Rockwell and Matt Dillon at the party, in addition to "Marie and Bruce" playwright Wallace Shawn, of "The Princess Bride," and co-star Frank Whaley, who was immortalized as Archie Graham in "Field of Dreams.
Downtown, celebrities from Down Under Naomi Watts and Baz Luhrmann attended the 2011 TriBeCa Ball, benefiting the New York Academy of Art.
Watts' husband, actor Liev Schreiber, actress Parker Posey and former teen stars Jena Malone ("Stepmom") and Leelee Sobieski ("Never Been Kissed") were there for the fundraiser.
And in Herald Square, Oxygen stars Tori Spelling and Paris Hilton showed for the network’s 2011 Upfront event at Gotham Hall.
Spelling has signed on for another season of her parenting reality series "Tori and Dean," while Hilton is set to star in a new show called "The World According to Paris."
A statement from the female-empowerment themed network announced that Hilton’s show would also prominently feature Charlie Sheen ex Brooke Mueller.
