The Air I Breathe Premiere Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Brendan Fraser and Andy Garcia

Last night, ThinkFilm and h Magazine presented the Los Angeles Premiere of "The Air I Breathe" starring Andy Garcia, Brendan Fraser, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Forest Whitaker, all happening at the Arclight Theaters in Hollywood.

The film is about a businessman (Forest Whitaker) who bets his life on a horse race, a gangster (Brendan Fraser) who can see the future, and a pop star (Sarah Michelle Gellar) whose life becomes entangled with a crime boss (Andy Garcia) and a doctor (Kevin Bacon) who must save the crime boss' life. The stories of each individual segues into each other to dramatize the four emotional cornerstones in life which include happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love.

The stars last night didn't have to worry about any of those life's emotions as they walked the red carpet.

Sarah Michelle Gellar looked stunning in your aqua hued dress that reminded me of some type of Egyptian inspired fashion motiff.

Brendan Fraser was all dressed in black as he was entranced by the photographers screaming out Sarah's name.

John Cho of "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" fame, was more low keyed in a relaxed sports jacket and a t-shirt emblazoned with the words "No Pictures." Interesting. Did he mean he didn't want any pictures to be taken of him or that there are no pictures being filmed because of the writers' strike?

Phoebe Price's dress matched her fiery red hair as she walked the carpet. One ambitious photographer got her to stand next to the Tribal jewelry cart and act like she was shopping for some costume jewelry.

Mr Andy Garcia had a quick pace on the carpet as he doesn't seem to like the picture taking part of the carpet. He looked a bit serious but we know he's not as serious as he thinks. Just that afternoon during the press junket for the movie, my feature writer colleague asked him about his "New Dream Project" and he replied back, "Oh, my nude dream project!" Hmmm...a jokester in disguise?

The film director Jieho Lee was accompanied by his famous Korean actress wife Min Kim.

Unfortunately, Mr Whitaker and Mr. Bacon did not show up to the premiere. Oh well there goes my 1 degree of separation from Kevin Bacon.
