'Family Stone,' 'Match Point' Premieres Take over NYC
December 15, 2005

Two must-see premieres hit the Big Apple Wednesday night, and you can bet "Extra" had them both covered. We were with the biggest stars of "The Family Stone" and "Match Point."

Sarah Jessica Parker told "Extra" her head was still spinning from her Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in the new holiday flick. "It's not sunk in," she admitted. "I don't know that it ever will."

As for her own real-life holidays, Sarah Jessica is looking forward to spending some quiet time with actor husband Matthew Broderick. "We are just desperate to be with one another," she told us. "So our tradition is to spend as much time together as possible."

Also at the premiere were "Family Stone" co-stars Luke Wilson, Dermot Mulroney and new "It Girl" Rachel McAdams, who did some rumor control on reports that she refused to pose nude for a Vanity Fair photo shoot.

"To set the record straight, we had some creative differences on the shoot and that's pretty much all there is to that," she said simply.

What about whispers that she's become engaged to her co-star from "The Notebook," boyfriend Ryan Gosling? "No," she insisted.

Rachel wasn't the only star shining over Manhattan on the cool New York night; right around the corner the cast of another "Golden Globe" contender, "Match Point," strolled down the red carpet at their own premiere.

Legendary director Woody Allen was as modest as ever about his new suspense thriller's four nominations. "Every time I make a movie, I always expect the worst," he admitted. "So if I'm not dragged from the house and beaten by an angry mob, I'm thrilled."

Meanwhile, an excited Scarlett Johansson, who was nominated as Best Supporting Actress, admitted she's already working on her outfit for the awards. "I think the first thing I said was, 'Call my stylist and say this is what I want to wear,'" she revealed.

Catch "Match Point" in select theaters on December 28th and "The Family Stone" on Friday.
