Fiona Apple, Paul Thomas Anderson On Move For Movie Premiere

Musician Fiona Apple and director beau Paul Thomas Anderson were at the hands of a Hollywood fire marshal for last week’s star-studded premiere of “Magnolia.”

Anderson and Apple were among those forced to shuffle between the penthouse and the lobby of a Westwood office building for the screening of the film after a fire marshal ruled that the penthouse had exceeded its occupancy limit, according to “Variety.”

Others forced to wait in the lobby for access to the party proper included the film’s stars, Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, and William H. Macy, as well as guests Mark Wahlberg, Ed Burns, and Heather Graham.

“Magnolia” is the newest film from 29-year-old Anderson, who shot to fame for directing Wahlberg, Moore, Graham, and Burt Reynolds in 1997′s “Boogie Nights.” After limited release in Los Angeles and New York City, “Magnolia” is due to open nationwide on January 7.

As for Apple, she’s just finished playing a series of radio festivals in support of her new album,
“When The Pawn…,” including this past weekend’s KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas concert at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California.
