At the Cinema Society and Piaget screening of "Revolver" on Sunday, the film's director, Guy Ritchie, and his wife Madonna were asked every imaginable question about their marriage and life in general.

What did she first notice about Ritchie?

"I found him very sexy because he looked like he'd just gotten into a fist fight."

What has he learned about fashion from his wife?

"Not to wear the same dresses as her," deadpanned Ritchie.

What's their son, David, doing now?

"Eating," said the husband.

Is marriage difficult?

"It's a juggling act. A true juggling act," she said.

Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama?

"Hillary. I've gotta support the girls," said Madonna, adding, "I'm a big fan of the Clintons."

Afterward, guests such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Steven Klein, Ingrid Casares, Alex Rodriguez and Donna Karan headed to the Gramercy Park Hotel, where the party continued until midnight.

Meanwhile at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, Beyoncé Knowles kicked off the inaugural Movies Rock with a rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"; Jennifer Lopez and Tony Bennett sang a duet of "White Christmas"; Queen Latifah wowed the crowd with "Big Spender," and Mary J. Blige took to the stage with John Legend for "As Time Goes By."

Perhaps most remarkably, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger outshined presenter Lopez. Dripping in more than $3 million of Neil Lane jewels, including those on her lash line, Scherzinger said, "I'm performing 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend,' so of course I have to bring it."

Across the pond on Thursday, Londoners hit Bistrotheque to celebrate the launch of Gap's (Product) Red designer collaborations. "Sit down, sit down for pass the parcel!" cried Katie Grand as she tried to marshal guests including Elle Macpherson, Francesca Versace and Giles Deacon to their seats for a post-dinner round of the children's party game. Up for grabs were (Product) Red T-shirts by Deacon, Henry Holland and Proenza Schouler, and a Mulberry Roxanne bag re-created in jersey.
