Last night some of the biggest names in Hollywood got together in San Francisco for a reading of The World of Nick Adams at Davies Symphony Hall. The event was to benefit Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camp the Painted Turtle, which made it an especially touching and memorable evening. The legendary actor was honored by friends including Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Casey Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix and more. Bruce Willis didn't have any of his ladies, but smiled and showed off his salt and pepper beard. The celebrities all participated in reading the Ernest Hemingway stories on stage to the audience and among their peers — it was a very special evening indeed.
