Oscar-winning Producer Crashes Her Own Premiere

CRASH producer CATHY SCHULMAN was forced to attend the premiere of her latest movie as the guest of actor PAUL GIAMATTI, because of her ongoing feud with former business partner BOB YARI. Schulman and Yari made Giamatti-starring THE ILLUSIONIST, which premiered in New York on Tuesday (15AUG06) night, before their acrimonious split. Yari sued the Producers Guild Of America (PGA) and the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences (AMPAS) in March (06) after he was removed from the Oscar-winning Crash's credits, because the Academy only allows two producers from each film to be nominated for the top prize. Crash was a surprise Best Picture winner, and writer/director PAUL HAGGIS picked up the award for his producing contribution along with Schulman at the March (06) ceremony. And, while legal action continues in Los Angeles, the pair are still not on good terms, especially as Yari ensured Schulman was not asked to The Illusionist premiere. Schulman tells PageSix.com, "I was not invited to the premiere. I went as Paul Giamatti's date. "When I saw Yari, I said hello. He didn't say anything, but let's put it this way - if looks could kill. And they didn't give me a wristband to get in the VIP section of the after-party. "It's just an unfortunate and unnecessary situation. I still haven't been paid for Crash or The Illusionist."
