The night before Julia Roberts was nominated for a Golden Globe for “August: Osage County,” she was star-struck at her own premiere by rockers Kings of Leon.
“In a green room [at the Ziegfeld Theatre], a photographer took cast shots, and Julia was saying, ‘I feel really uncomfortable right now. Is anyone else uncomfortable because Kings of Leon are here? They’re so amazing,’ ” said a spy.
The source added that Roberts then asked the band to jump into pics with her and the cast, including Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney, Abigail Breslin, Julianne Nicholson and Margo Martindale.
The arena rockers have a song on the movie’s soundtrack and were in town for the screening and to play “SNL” on Saturday.
At an after-party at the Monarch, the cast and the Kings — including lead singer Caleb Followill and his Victoria’s Secret model wife Lily Aldridge — proceeded to have a dance party to ’80s tunes that lasted into the wee hours.
“The reserved tables were upstairs,” said a witness, “but at about midnight, it was noticeable less people were in the VIP area. At first, everyone thought they’d left, but they were all downstairs on the dance floor together with Kings of Leon.”
