Tilda Swinton Kicks Off Spontaneous Dance Party In Memory Of Roger Ebert

Tilda Swinton might be one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood, but the woman isn’t afraid to get down, yo! At the annual Ebertfest – the affectionate name for “Roger Ebert’s Overlooked Film Festival, which the late critic founded back in 1998. Swinton was there to promote her new flick “Julia”, but ended up mostly promoting spontaneous dance parties, as she appeared on stage with Ebert’s widow, Chaz and prompted to audience to participate in a “No observers allowed” dance party, according to New York Daily News.

Swinton said: “We’re not dancing up here. We’re coming down to dance with you — because if we dance up here, you’re just going to sit and watch us and laugh,” Then Barry White’s You’re the First, the Last, My Everything came on and the rest is history. We can now tick off “party instigator” in Swinton’s already quite impressive resume. Recently, the 52-year-old actress made news by… taking a nap. The location of said nap might have had something to do with it, since most people don’t typically sleep over in a glass box at the MoMa. Tilda’s performance was as part of a piece entitled “The Maybe”. So the actress/ all-round cool lady has been keeping pretty busy lately. We’d venture to assume that the dance break was more fun than her nap in a box though.

For a lady of 51, Swinton sure knows how to get down.
