An array of Hollywood stars turned out to see Radiohead perform their Haiti charity gig in Los Angeles.
Tickets for the intimate Music Box Theater show were only available to the highest bidders via an online auction with all proceeds going to the relief fund in the eartquake hit nation.
James Bond actor Daniel Craig, Rosanna Arquette, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Charlize Theron and True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Steven Moyer were just some of the names in the crowd.
Radiohead’s career spanning 24-song set featured an array of classics including ‘Kid A’, ‘Nude’, ‘Lucky’, ‘How To Disappear Completely’, ‘Exit Music’, ‘Pyramid Song’, ‘The Bends’, ‘Paranoid Android’ and the ultimate ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’.
‘Lotus Flower’ also got its inaugural Radiohead outing after Thom Yorke debuted it during his shows last year.
Maggie Gyllenhaal worried she would have to ignore her ‘Crazy Heart’ director.
The actress stars in the movie with actor Jeff Bridges and admits she was delighted that Scott Cooper – who was helming his first film – surpassed her expectations.
She explained: “I loved Scott. And I went into it… At this point, often, I’ve worked with a lot of first time directors.
“To be honest, sometimes when I meet them – because it’s so hard to know how it’s going to go – I’m meeting them to see if I can do the movie alone, if I could do it without any help, if they won’t get in my way.
“But sometimes you read a great script and you think, ‘All right, I’ve got Jeff, a great part, can I just do this by myself? Is he going to get in my way?’ And that’s how I went into it with Scott.
“And after about a week, I started to kind of notice, ‘Oh, you can see me. Maybe you can help me.’ I loved him.”
Maggie also enjoyed working with Jeff because their approaches are so similar.
She added to About.com: “He and I really, we work very similarly. Scenes were never the same twice. We really kind of let ourselves react to each other in every moment. We just kind of went for it. Not everybody works that way. It was an incredible pleasure.”

Maggie looked sheer perfection at the Golden Globes last night, showing off the figure and fashion sense in a beautiful mermaid dress from RM by Roland Mouret. A huge congratulation to Maggie’s Crazy Heart co-star Jeff Bridges for winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama.

While she may not appear in It’s Complicated, Maggie Gyllenhaal felt a special personal connection to the romantic marital comedy – because of her own parents’ recent divorce after 30 years of marriage, the actress told a private, star-studded gathering Tuesday.
Gyllenhaal said she laughed and cried throughout the movie, which stars Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin as a couple trying to sort out their relationship after their legal split. “I’m kind of in the thick of all that, and it’s nice to laugh about it a little,” said Gyllenhaal, who presented the It’s Complicated stars with the best ensemble cast award at the National Board of Review Awards, at Cipriani’s 42nd Street in Manhattan.
Gyllenhaal, 32, also said that she and her mom, 63-year-old screenwriter Naomi Foner, who on Christmas Eve split from director Stephen Gyllenhaal, recently dished about men over a bottle of wine, “which we never would have done before she got divorced. She told me about the sexy Zen Buddist Ping-Pong-playing married carpenter who had been hitting on her.”
Gyllenhaal proved delightfully open with the audience at Tuesday’s ceremony, where the assembled included George Clooney, his Up in the Air costar Vera Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson.
“I’m not the most objective audience for the movie, because my parents, who have been married for thirty years are getting divorced,” Gyllenhaal told everyone.
And though there were plenty of parallels between her family’s situation and the movie, Gyllenhaal did joke about one major difference: “I don’t think [my parents are] sleeping together anymore.”
