UNIVERSAL CITY, California — You saw the big stars, enjoyed the musical performances and were reminded once again that the MTV Movie Awards are a whole different kind of party. But once the show ended, and the sun went down, Hollywood’s biggest names made sure the evening was just getting started.
“I’m really a man of the people,” grinned “Office” star Rainn Wilson, surveying the scene. “I’ll meet the fans, have a hamburger. Then I’ll shoot heroin into my eye and pass out in my own vomit. Let’s get this party started!”
This year’s MTV afterparty was held in front of the Gibson Amphitheatre, under the stars. As a JumboTron-size screen replayed the show, the latest hits pumped over the loudspeakers, and everything from sushi to hamburger sliders were served. Behind a velvet rope, Paris Hilton and Tila Tequila kept the party going strong.
“I’m taking it in stride,” “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson said, somewhat amazed that his still-seven-months-away movie unveiled an action clip that overshadowed many of the evening’s biggest stars. “[The scene] was a pretty intense moment. Cam [Gigandet] won Best Fight, and I in reality don’t have a single muscle in my entire body … but I won [in the clip], and that’s the great thing about being the lead.”
“There were a lot of successes,” “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano dished between drinks, discussing the best and worst fashion he had seen throughout the day. “Paris looked flawless. Sarah Jessica Parker: flawless. Anne Hathaway was a little bondage for me — very leather, dominatrix. I was surprised that the guys didn’t really go there for me. They were kind of boring. I was like, ‘T-shirt and jeans on everyone?’ ”
Host Mike Myers , Brody Jenner, Anna Faris, and Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt from “The Hills” were just a few of the stars who roamed the grounds, capping off a massive evening with an equally big nightcap.
“Sarah Jessica Parker — did you see her legs?” Fonzworth Bentley marveled after the show. “Her legs looked better than Christmas!”
Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill shared some laughs as they mingled with the assembled guests, while Verne “Mini-Me” Troyer proved a big hit with the crowd. “Hairspray” star Nikki Blonsky and “Speed Racer” actor Emile Hirsch partied in various corners, and the talk of the evening was the “OMG!” moments everyone had just witnessed onstage.
“I thought the Jabbawockeez crushed it,” JC Chasez said of “America’s Best Dance Crew.” “That was amazing dude, the way they came out of the ceiling. That, I thought, was great. So were the Pussycat Dolls, they were amazing. [Coldplay] did a phenomenal job, but they’re pros. This is, like, their third or fourth record, and they’ve got it down to a science.
“I also loved seeing ‘Wayne’s World’ again,” he added. “That was a very nostalgic moment.”
“Adam Sandler’s song,” Pattinson countered as his favorite moment, citing a mix of comedy and music. “He was amazing. He’s an amazing singer.”
