Partyscope: Just Friends

Saying hello on the party circuit is its own kind of performance, especially when total strangers think they’re your best friend. Here are the most seasoned greeters.

Gwyneth Paltrow
Does a double handhold and shouts your name like a long-lost pal.


Danny Devito
Covers his bases with “Nice to see you again” even if you’ve never met.


George Clooney
Shakes your hand lingeringly while leaning forward and gazing into your eyes. Sigh.


Hollers “Hey, darlin’!,” making you feel like her one and only.


Ted Danson
Spots you across a crowded room and yells, “So, what are we doing next week?”
