British actor Robert Pattinson opened the doors of his California mansion over the weekend (22-23Jun13) to host a lavish birthday party for his director friend Nicholas Jarecki.

The Twilight star themed the party around The Great Gatsby and served Mexican food, while the guest list included actress Michelle Rodriguez, 50 Shades of Grey author E.L. James, movie legend Warren Beatty and songwriter Diane Warren.

Singer/songwriter Todd Michael Schultz documented the bash in a series of posts on, and pictures from the party have also turned up online.

Schultz was full of praise for the host, writing, "That was a real freakin (sic) party... Everywhere you turn... Someone super smart and talented and interesting to talk to... Rob Pattinson is a really cool guy. It's good not to lose sight of basic kindness... Everyone was really happy and jolly when we sang happy birthday to Nick... We should make #NicksParty trend (on Twitter)... it was that epic. At Rob's house. Great people... The best food was served."

Arbitrage director Jarecki turns 33 on Tuesday (25Jun13).
