The Scene: Hollywood party for the premiere of Clint Eastwood’s A Perfect World, held at Spago. *Guest List: Eastwood and Frances Fisher, his kids Kyle and Alison, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, Wesley Snipes, Joe Pesci. *Guest Lost: Costar Kevin Costner, off filming Wyatt Earp. *The Spread: Spago’s finger food: pizza, Thai chicken sate, scallops topped with caviar. *Blame It on Beatty: Warner exec Bill Gerber tried to stage the party at Eastwood’s traditional hangout, Chasen’s, but Warren Beatty was shooting a scene for Love Affair there, and ”we couldn’t talk him out of it.” *The Gripe: ”If we were eating at Chasen’s,” said Eastwood publicist Marco Barla, ”we wouldn’t be eating little food. We’d have big food, like tortellini and manicotti.” *So, How Did Eastwood and Costner Get Along: ”I had a talk with him. He knew going in that he wouldn’t be a leading guy sitting around making smart remarks,” said Eastwood. ”I never had a conflict with him.” *One Reason Laura Dern Did the Movie: ”There were no dinosaurs.”
