On Friday afternoon, Vanity Fair and a slew of guests gathered to celebrate the late and great Christopher Hitchens. According to WWD, a few of those in attendance included Graydon Carter, Anna Wintour, Salman Rushdie, Sean Penn, David Remnick, Tina Brown, Stephen Fry and Steve Kroft.
Excerpts from Hitchens’ works were read by many, but Fry probably had the quote of the afternoon. According to Fry, Hitchens thought that “The four most overrated things in life are Champagne, lobster, anal sex and picnics.” Fry then added, “Three out of four isn’t bad.”
