Marisa Tomei, in Atlanta filming “Parental Guidance,” celebrated a birthday Sunday with brunch at 4th and Swift. She is 47.

Tomei, who appeared most recently as a reporter in the superb film “Ides of March,” also has been spotted at the Virginia-Highland Atkins Park, Parish and Souper Jenny.

“Parental Guidance” also stars Billy Crystal and Bette Midler. Bailee Madison, 12, stars as one of Bette and Billy’s grandchildren in the film. She’s making the most of her time in Atlanta, too.

On Sunday, Bailee raised more than $1,000 selling lemonade at the Four Seasons hotel in Midtown to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a childhood cancer research fund started by a little girl named Alex Scott, who was diagnosed with cancer at 4 and sadly is survived by the cause she started.

“It’s basically one cup of lemonade at a time; we can find this cure for childhood cancer. I’m very blessed to be involved,” Bailee said last week during an interview with B 98.5 FM Morning Team co-hosts Vikki Locke and Kelly Stevens. “It’s something that I’m so incredibly honored to be a part of. I have so much love and respect, so does our family, for this foundation.”

We stopped by the Four Seasons yesterday so we could make a contribution and so my daughter could meet Bailee. Bailee was charming, friendly and kind to everyone there. She clearly is a delightful and sincere young lady.

Very impressive.
