Stolichnaya Vodka Hosts The TriBeCa Film Festival After-Party For "Love Hate Love"
Who Was There: Sean Penn
Other Details: I never thought I would say this, but Sean Penn was at Tenjune. Bizarre. Weird. Surreal. But it happened. This actually occurred in reality. Despite being in the training space for NYC bro-dom he did not fist pump. His hair defied gravity naturally and without being shellacked with gel. No women were hit on in the process of him being there. Instead he smiled, stayed late into the evening, and celebrated Love Hate Love which he screened and led a panel discussion on earlier as part of TFF. Not to be confused with the 1971 TV movie of the same name, the flick centers on attacks on the World Trade Center, the London bus bombing and the Sari Club bombing in Bali.
