MEN OF THE MOMENT: GQ’s Men of the Year party in Los Angeles on Tuesday temporarily erased economic worries and fire-related concern from the minds of those at the luxe celebration at Chateau Marmont, where stars abounded and revelers carried on into the late evening hours. “This is quite a party, you don’t see many like this these days,” said John Hamm of “Mad Men,” who, during the party, graciously addressed some European fans who were guests at the hotel. The all-out bash also drew the likes of Megan Fox, Jason Statham, Rosario Dawson, Elisha Cuthbert, Adam Brody, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman. Leelee Sobieski, in an Issa pantsuit, was fast friends with former New York Jets wide receiver and football bad boy Keyshawn Johnson. “I saw you in a movie and you scared the heck out of me,” said Johnson upon meeting Sobieski, who admitted she’d never been to a professional football game. By night’s end, the two had a plan to hit the gridiron grandstands, and possibly even a basketball game, before season’s close. Kevin Connolly of “Entourage” hit up Johnson for fantasy football advice, since he fared poorly in his first go-round at the often high-stakes office (or on-set) pool. “Man, I suck at this, it was my first time and I don’t know if I’ll try it again,” Connolly said. “Next time, you’d better call me,” Johnson said, laughing.
