With TIFF comes a lot of celebrity appearances. And you know what? We feel for them. Sure, they’re rich and beautiful, but having to engage with total strangers for hours on end can be tiring to anyone, celeb or not. Last night was no exception. At the party for Spotlight at Grey Goose Soho House, Rachel McAdams encountered a man who was essentially a beyond-the-velvet-rope, mixtape-hocking pick-up artist.

This dude cornered McAdams into a conversation, which she happily obliged, because she’s a celebrity and it’s easier to be patronizingly kind than it is to be a monster. But she soon learned that a friendly conversation with a stranger would turn into something more. He began talking down to her when she said she lived in Toronto (his response was a repetitious “good for you, good for you” as if speaking to a dog who refuses to live in Los Angeles), and then he began asking for her e-mail or phone number. Why? Because he had “music [he] wants to share.” Thankfully, Fashion Magazine TIFF correspondent Anne T. Donahue was with us and pulled her away from the obnoxious opportunist with a simple, “hey, I just want to say I love your dress and your work.” And it worked.

Rachel was left relatively unscathed and returned to mugging for cameras and partying with Liev Schreiber, John Slattery, Mark Ruffalo and more (not us, though, even though if we weren’t there, she might still be discussing some guy’s “sick tracks”). Anyway, the Spotlight party was the party to be at last night, but we’re taking you inside all of last night’s all-star action with Last Night @ TIFF:
