Talk of TIFF: Leonardo DiCaprio's fun with fans, A-list parties and Jason Sudeikis's gift for Olivia Wilde

Day 3 of the Toronto International Film Festival did not disappoint, and one particular famous face shut down King Street West with his first-ever TIFF appearance. Check out our third roundup revealing which A-listers were spotted where (and don't forget to check our map to the stars and TIFF style mega-gallery each morning, too!).


Thursday's biggest star appearance had to be Leonardo DiCaprio, who made his first-ever appearance at TIFF, and fans were thrilled to get some face time with the actor. After his doc Before the Flood debuted, the actor strolled King Street West in the heart of downtown Toronto to greet movie-goers, and many said he stopped to say hi to everyone (and even sign a Titanic DVD!).

The highly-regarded-yet-shrouded-in-controversy film The Birth of a Nation premiered last night and the cast's many stars - from Nate Parker to Armie Hammer and Gabrielle Union - walked the red carpet at the Elgin Theatre. At the end of the screening, Nate received a long and emotional standing ovation.

Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis made a stunning pair at the premiere of their film Colossal. Anne donned an eclectic ensemble festooned with flowers and sequins, while Jason looked dapper in a blue suit and white Nike sneakers. At his side was his beautiful, pregnant partner, Olivia Wilde. Earlier in the day, the co-stars popped by the Deadline Lounge (as did Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, David Oyelowo, Jennifer Connelly and more), where Jason nabbed a bag of IMAGE Skincare goodies for Olivia!

One of the most anticipated red carpets of the day did not disappoint: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley dazzled at the Snowden premiere, where the 35-year-old said it was an honour to play Edward Snowden. Later at Lavelle, the actor and co-stars Melissa Leo and Zachary Quinto nibbled on mini grilled cheeses and proscuitto crostinis at the film's after-party, where they graciously obliged guests by taking photos and signing autographs

Ewan McGregor, Tom Felton, Dakota Fanning and Uzo Abuda posed with fans and signed autographs while walking the red carpet for their film American Pastoral.


Naomi Wattshelped launch the Women of Worth program in Canada in conjunction with L’Oréal Paris. Naomi looked gorgeous in a white, architectural ensemble as she addressed the crowd about the philanthropic initiative.

Douglas Booth and Laura Vandervoot landed in Toronto at Pearson International Airport and were spotted by etalk.

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche celebrated the premiere of their film Catfight at the yet-to-open Yorkville restaurant STK.

Members club Soho House's annual Grey Groose hub welcomed several A-list faces late into the night on Thursday, including Leonardo Dicaprio, Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Olsen.

Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson, and co-stars celebrated the launch of their film Trespass Against Us at STORYS. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard stopped by the party for a drink and a couple bites to eat, before rushing off to another event. Earlier in the night, the cast of Carrie Pilby toasted the flick here too (think Nathan Lane, Gabriel Byrne and Jason Ritter)

Guests sipped Henkell, Budweiser, Social Lite Vodka Coolers and Iceberg Vodka cocktails at the annual Producers Ball at the IT House in support of Artists for Peace and Justice. Notable guests included hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott, Paul Haggis, Yasmin Warsame, Gordon Pinsent, Fefe Dobson and Kreesha Turner.

Brasaii turned out to be a huge hotbed of A-list activity on Thursday thanks to The Hollywood Reporter Lounge. Everyone from Dakota Fanning and Ewan McGregor to Parker Posey and Fan Bingbing stopped by, and (hot tip!) with the restaurant still open to the public, it's become a great place for celeb-spotting.
