AFI Fest gets wild at the Hollywood Roosevelt.

November 11, 2011|By Matt Donnelly, Special to the Los Angeles Times

It was quite a week for the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. AFI Fest 2011 packed Grauman's Chinese Theatre with A-listers and the hotel's ballrooms with film fetes and even reportedly saw gate-crashing and a bar fight. Here's who came through the Roosevelt's storied doors.

The Girls: Michelle Williams, rocking her pixie cut, swept through to hype her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in the Weinstein Co.'s "My Week With Marilyn"... Jennifer Garner, rocking her baby bump in a Lanvin number, Olivia Wilde and young Yara Shahidi for the satirical dairy-carving flick "Butter"... Kirsten Dunst looking rather cheery in support of "Melancholia"... Michelle Yeoh looking stunning for "The Lady."

The Boys: Clint Eastwood, Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick and Colton Haynes making a guys' night out of the "J. Edgar" premiere ... Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe and Thomas Jane suiting up for their volatile brotherhood effort "I Melt With You"... Antonio Banderas and Dennis Haysbert saluting Pedro Almodovar at AFI's special evening with the filmmaker and his movie "Law of Desire."

The Ugly: Reports said Lindsay Lohan reportedly crashed the gala after the "J. Edgar" screening, making security and handlers uncomfortable with attempts to gain party access and nab photos with talent ... Saturday, while a bash for Roman Polanski's "Carnage" went off, Kardashian clan-adjacent TV personality Brody Jenner intervened in a bar fight involving his girlfriend Avril Lavigne and wound up taking a broken beer bottle to the head.
