What an odd incident that I can’t quite wrap my head around…
White partying into the early hours at Sundance, Actor Emile Hirsch was involved in some kind of something with a female executive from Paramount Pictures. Page Six Reports:
Police were called to Tao nightclub in Park City, Utah, at around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday after the movie exec, whose name has not been confirmed but who works for Paramount, told security she had been assaulted.
While it is not clear what sparked the drama at the packed club, a witness told us, “Something happened between the movie exec and Emile, and she said she had been assaulted and asked security to call the police. Emile didn’t leave the scene, and calmly waited for the police to arrive, and spoke with them until around 5 a.m., after which he went home with his friends. No arrests were made.”
Another source said the female film exec didn’t press charges at the scene, but considered speaking to the police later on Sunday about making a complaint.
Hirsch, 29, is in Park City for the Friday premiere of his movie “Ten Thousand Saints,” which co-stars Ethan Hawke, Hailee Steinfeld and Emily Mortimer, and follows a teen who’s sent to live with his father in Manhattan after his friend overdoses.
A source tells us of Hirsch, “He’s a really nice guy. I can’t imagine he’d be involved in anything like this.” A spokesperson for Park City police said, “We are still investigating the details of the case and can’t provide any further information at this time.”
No comment from either Paramount or Hirsch’s camp…but what an odd and sad incident to have transpired. We’ll keep you posted on any more details and all: if you’re at Sundance in the wee hours, look after yourself, ya hear?
