Willie Garson Drops ‘SATC’ Hints at Project A.L.S. Benefit

At last night’s Project A.L.S. tenth-anniversary gala, Jennifer Hudson was “preserving” her voice by not speaking to reporters. But we managed to slightly raise the veil of secrecy on the Sex and the City movie by hurling questions at Willie Garson, who plays Sarah Jessica Parker’s gay BFF, Stanford. After he described a recent scene to a horde of shouting journos with, “No! I can’t give it away. I’d have to kill you,” we slipped in our query: Why did Big miss the wedding, as paparazzi shots of the set would have you believe? “I can’t tell you that either!” Garson said. Then he caught himself. “What wedding? That’s how I’m supposed to answer — what wedding?” Did we detect some gossip in there? Anyway, Garson tried to assure us that the movie is a whole big lovefest, too (even though we didn't ask). "We actually shot a scene last night with all of us sitting around a table, and it was like the Last Supper," he said. "It was absolutely ridiculous that we were all sitting there together. It was completely surreal.” Again, we feel like we detect some gossip in there. —Bennett Marcus
