Heidi Thomas talks Vanessa Hudgens and reworking 'Gigi'


How do you solve a problem like Gigi? That was the task given to Heidi Thomas, the writer behind British hit Call the Midwife, who is adapting the book of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s musical for its upcoming Broadway production (starring High School Musical‘s Vanessa Hudgens).

Hudgens was even quoting the now-famous “look at my s–t” speech by James Franco’s Spring Breakers character Alien before the cameras started rolling. But we did catch her on tape revealing a gem — that she was a member of the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Fan Club.

Near-freezing temps were no match for Sunday night Globe winners such as Quentin Tarantino and celebrities like Selena Gomez, who were determined to keep the party going following the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Full of booze and ravenous for food, stars flocked to several bashes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel just after the awards ceremony, from HBO’s soiree at the downstairs Circa 55 restaurant and The Weinstein Company’s party at the old Trader Vic’s, to the NBC-Focus Features-Universal’s rooftop shindig, Warner Bros.
