Say hello to my little friend! Al Pacino reunited with his Scarface co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham alongside producer Martin Bregman in downtown L.A. Tuesday night to celebrate the Blu-ray release of Brian De Palma's legendary 1983 film.
"It's a film [that's] always been sort of close to my heart," said Pacino, who sat in a Tony Montana-monogrammed "throne" for the evening's Q&A, moderated by "Psycho" Mike Catherwood. "I think if this movie opened next weekend and nobody has seen it, [it would get the] same reaction, because there's something in it that defies things, and there's something that is controversial in the very nature of it."
Reality-star couples Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, and Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl indulged themselves at the event, which dressed up the Belasco Theater in opulent Scarface style. Guests feasted on Cuban cuisine from Border Grill chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, smoked hand-rolled Havana-inspired cigars, and rocked out to a special performance by Ludacris, who declared Scarface one of his top five favorite films.
