Paz de la Huerta Reads for Playboy

19 Oct

One of my favorite New York women, Paz de la Huerta, appeared last Wednesday night at “A Playboy Salon,” a collaboration event between jeweler the House of Waris, The Accompanied Literary Society’s Brooke Geahan, and Playboy magazine. The ultra-provocative Boardwalk Empire actress read a newly-translated excerpt from classic Madame Bovary, recently published in the latest issue of Playboy.

Located under the Highline on the West Side, the event featured bedouin-style tents and lots of Playboy-types in robes. Despite the ambiance, the highlight of the evening was de la Huerta’s reading, marked by her “slow, heavily-accented” speech that made everyone a little sweaty. Naturally, the never-too-modest actress peppered her reading of Madame Bovary with the occasional “shut up, motherfuckers!” I love this woman.
