In the interests of keeping the world fully apprised of celebrity doings, several friends and I compiled a list of every famous person we saw at the Fahrenheit 9/11 premiere, plus a few we read about in news reports (thank you kindly ticket guru, note taker Amy, Variety, L.A. Times, Rush and Molloy by way of, and, uh, the Academy?). Not including usual suspects like Harvey and Moore.
