The Hamptons has become infamous as a stomping ground for annoying celebrities--hello, Kardashians--who we view with a mix of fascination and repulsion. Kind of like a car wreck. So, it can be easy to forget that there are actually some very cool, totally non-irritating famous people who make their way out here.
On Saturday afternoon, the ageless Diane Keaton--in full Annie Hall regalia--read from her book "Let's Just Say it Wasn't Pretty," at BookHampton in East Hampton. And, the next night, she and her co-star Michael Douglas and director Rob Reiner showed up for a screening of their new film "And So It Goes," at Guild Hall in East Hampton.
The night before, also at Guild Hall, the hilarious comedian Martin Short took the stage and partied afterwards with such local celebrities as Alecand Hilaria Baldwin and Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker (and his longtime stage partner, Nathan Lane.)
Other notables around over the weekend were Star Trek's Zachary Quinto, the Tony-nominated "Cripple of Inishmaan" actress Sarah Greene, everyone's favorite Candian news anchor, NY1's Pat Kiernan, and The New Yorker's Adam Gopnik.
