Tea Leoni Honored For UNICEF Work

Anne Lu - Celebrity News Service News Writer

New York, NY (CNS) - Actress Tea Leoni was honored with her family, the Pantaleonis, and Chip Lyons for their work for UNICEF in a winter wonderland theme in Cipriani 42nd Street.

"My grandmother founder the U.S. fund for UNICEF in the late '40s," the 41-year-old actress explains. "She and my father are being honored, and I'm just skidding along on their coattails. But to be honest, I'm also excited for the chance to dress up without jelly all over me".

Leoni's friends and supporters who attended included Julian Moore and husband Bart Freundlich, Amy Fine Collins, Pamela Fiori, Susan Fales-Hill, Lauren Bush and David Lauren among others.

"We're really good friends with Tea Leoni, and that's why we're here tonight," Moore says.

Host Bryant Gumbel remarks, "The fact that we've managed to fill up this room means we've already raised over two million dollars."

Leoni had stated in an issue of Life magazine that she became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF partially because her paternal grandmother was the president of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF for 25 years.

She is married to X-Files actor David Duchovny and they celebrated their 10th anniversary last May 6.

Actors on Actors: Garry Shandling on David Duchovny

Daily Variety (SAG Awards Preview) [Nov 29, 2007]

Garry Shandling on David Duchovny
::Actors on Actors::

"It's the small moments to watch for in 'Californication.' The tiniest moments that show the character and actor's core without Dave almost doing anything, but allowing it to happen. It's the glance to the side, the roll of the eyes, or the fearful openness he has when he asks his wife, 'Was I ever mean to you?' Then there's a broad moment where his head goes through an expensive painting just as he's climaxing with yet another woman. It's all unpredictable in a new way that he hasn't been. Closer to the bone. Courageous, yet still hiding. That's Hank. It's impossible to like him, isn't it? He fucks everything that moves, and doesn't have enough focus left to write anything, which is his occupation. He's lost, and yet not. He's oblivious, and yet not. But, here's what he is for sure: present. Don't misunderstand. Hank is not David. He has crafted a character that allows him to explore and go further. And don't mistake the womanizing as a flimsy gimmick. Hank's just got it, and it's a key clue to his psyche, because for him it is just one more way he escapes the moment while fully being in it."

Duchovny supports strikers in Manhattan

By Paul J. Gough
Nov 9, 2007

NEW YORK -- Writers received a large boost from celebrities Thursday as their fourth day of picketing returned to Midtown Manhattan.

More than 100 noisy, boisterous picketers lined Columbus Circle in front of Time Warner headquarters. Walking with them on a chilly Manhattan morning were Robin Williams, who brought bagels for the writers, and David Duchovny.

Others included Tim Robbins, Julianne Moore, "SNL" star Seth Myers and "Sopranos" creator David Chase as well as "Law and Order: SVU" actors Chris Meloni and Richard Belzer.

Chase, carrying a "Fair Share for Net and Air" sign, said he wasn't striking for himself but instead for writers' residuals for those who aren't as well off.

"There are a lot of people who depend on those residuals to get by," Chase said.

The appearance of hard-hatted Teamsters emboldened the picketers after a brief lull, adding whistles and renewed chants of "Pens down, contract now."

The appearance of hard-hatted Teamsters emboldened the picketers after a brief lull, adding whistles and renewed chants of "Pens down, contract now." The inflatable rat was replaced by an equally large and "greedy" pink pig.

"Good luck, you guys," said one woman walking by.

Former sitcom star Roseanne Barr stopped by to show support. She said the strike wasn't affecting anything she was currently doing as she is mostly blogging.

Thanks to Hollywood Reporter!
