Last night’s Cinema Society- and Altoids-sponsored Our Idiot Brother screening, Precious star Gabourey Sidibe was raving about the film’s star, Paul Rudd.

“I love Clueless!” she told us. (A photographer, shortly after, announced that Mr. Rudd’s Clueless co-star Alicia Silverstone was in the building.) She particularly loved Mr. Rudd’s role in The Ten. We decided to ask about world events–it’s August, and there’s not too much to discuss. Would Ms. Sidibe sell the rights to her wedding as Kim Kardashian had? “No, I would prefer something more private.”

We asked if the actress had any advice for the Brooklyn-bound celebutante, and a publicist chimed in: “We’re not going to discuss any other celebrities.”

Okay, then, how about Libya? “I don’t know about that!”

Other guests at the party were occupied: Law & Order‘s Richard Belzer, hanging out with 30 Rock‘s Judah Friedlander, was playing with a small pup and in so doing knocked over a wineglass; Kirsten Dunst skipped the red carpet spent the evening huddled with two pals.
