Brad Pitt & Margot Robbie on Damien Chazelle’s Hollywood Epic ‘Babylon’ – Nifey

‘Babylon’ goes on and on

“Babylon”, the new film from director Damien Chazelle.

A glitzy story of corny Hollywood from the 20s. Everybody Naked. Party hard. Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie play characters based on actors John Gilbert and Clara Bow. It is understood that if you are under 100, only Google knows them. It’s also understood to be the longest film in captivity and before it’s over, your chin needs some tweezers.

Margot: “I read the script and my jaw dropped to the ground. It’s like ‘La Dolce Vita’ and ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ had a baby. And whatever that means, who knows.

Brad: “The script was 180 pages, so I asked ‘What’s going to be cut?’ and Damien said, ‘Nothing.’ ”

In theaters December 23. The thing lasts three hours and nine minutes. Every showing probably runs through Mother’s Day.

In other news, unfortunately showbiz took two hits last week. The two Freddies. Comedian borscht Freddie Roman and British VIP Freddie Hancock.

Pal Larry Amoros, gagwriter of Joan Rivers: “Roman has an open casket because everyone knows he can’t close.” Regarding her hairpiece: “Freddie’s coffin lid is stuck on.” And, “Freddie has spent so much time in the mountains that his porters are Sherpas.”

Hancock of Britain, BBC publicist, creator of the BAFTA awards. A confirmed New Yorker. When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth presented Freddie with a medal at Buckingham, the plus-one she brought with her was me.

The political remnants of T’giving

Matching mouths: “Incompetence runs in the elections. Officials said, “Hey, my cousin Lenny needs a job.” Lenny can’t find the men’s restroom, but it’s ‘Then throw him in the county election thing.’ The process can be unruly. Not always an overseer who says, “I can’t count your ballot.” It is filled in illegibly. Also: “Some neighborhoods are violent, chaotic. Citizens are even afraid to go to church, let alone vote.

So, has NY ever had a Republican governor? Answer: “No. It’s finish. Never be “red” again. The democratic machine is too powerful. And foreign newcomers vote mostly Democrat because it’s the party of the right.


dinner conversation

Slow week. Only two Catsimatidis events. Beautiful blonde wife Margo’s birthday party – private dinner upstairs at La Grenouille. The following night, winners John and Margo in a charity supporting the deceased. In that crowded ballroom at the Marriott Marquis, Andrew Giuliani – who was running for governor – claimed Eric Adams’ bizarre picks for aides: “It must be he’s on it.” He then repeated it for others to hear: “This guy must be on the alert.”


On the spot

New Yorkers suffer from double parking, tickets, tows, snows, snowplows, alternate side of street, outdoor shelters. But: Some New Yorkers have unused parking spots that come with a condo, rental, co-op — only they don’t have a car. Beautiful new Spacer app connects the needy with these spots. It’s making money zipping but allowing someone to park safely in their space, so no tickets, towing or snow. I’m just saying.

Addendum: “He’s a man with credentials. And if you’ve ever had someone peck at your credentials, you know how painful that can be.

Only in New York, children, only in New York.
