Jennifer Aniston’s movie “Wanderlust” is about finished and before she wanders on out of here she joined friends for a farewell celebration.
She joined co-star Paul Rudd and several other cast memebers on Wednesday night for a wrap party at Ecco in Midtown – hosted by Alan Alda – who joined the cast of the film. The place was locked down pretty tight, with Jen’s bodyguard sitting nearby enjoying a steak and keeping any potential onlookers away. The movie will be filming some scenes at a truck stop in Lawrenceville Friday as things wind down.
Jen has been spotted several times at the St. Regis hotel during her time here. A source told us she had stayed there several weeks ago, before “Wanderlust” headed north for a few weeks of filming in Clarkesville. Then just yesterday, Dr. Chip Cole told us he saw here there again. In a funny twist Cole, a plastic surgeon, was at the St. Regis giving a seminar on non-surgical and surgical ways to look great at any age, and gave Aniston as an example of someone who looks better every year. Then he ran smack into her!
Oh wait. Back to Ecco for a minute. If you want to check it out go this weekend or plan to visit next Tuesday. On Monday, you’ll be out of luck. A tipster tells us “The Change Up” has completely rented the place out for some scenes. That’s the film with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, who, by the way, had dinner at Aria on Tuesday night along with actress Scarlet Johansson. “The Change-Up” has been filming in Buckhead, as well as Inman Park and downtown Atlanta.
And Luke Wilson is in town for a project called “Yellow” and was spotted at both the High Museum and The Counter in Roswell over the past few days. He’s the brother of actor Owen Wilson, who took a serious shine to the St. Regis wine bar while he was in town for the filming of “Hall Pass.” Maybe Luke will stop by, too.
