At a party for his film The Science of Sleep, Gael García Bernal proves why he is beloved by women, men, and domestic animals. Not only is the diminutive darling a double cheek kisser, he is also a fan enabler. At the swank Dry Goods, a “pop-up” Levi’s store that popped up just for Sundance (with all profits going to youth AIDS charities, celebrities were asked to match the dollar value of the swag given to them as a contribution – now that’s a way to raise consciousness), Bernal held court like a king. When I asked, “May I take your picture?” he putted, “No, WE take OURRR picture.” He grabbed the camera and this is the result. See, the camera really does love him. Me? Well, let’s just say I was caught in the flattering age-defying light of his brilliance?
