LISA SNOWDON celebrated her 40th birthday in style at London's Portland Place over the weekend. The TV personality wore a figure-hugging floor length red dress with a thigh-length split and black heels. The guest of honour was almost out-classed by the arrival of one of her guests though, when the Hollywood actor Matt Damon showed up with his wife, Luciana Barroso.
A report in today's Metro (January 23rd, 2012) shows pictures of Matt Damon at the party, including one picture that was uploaded onto Twitter by one of the stars of The Only Way Is Essex, Lauren Pope. Pope tweeted a picture of herself with Matt Damon along with the message "Omg just met Matt Damon!!!! Ahhh star struck!!!!" Lisa Snowdon used to date the actor George Clooney, with whom Matt has co-starred in Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen. Lisa met George in 2000, when they filmed a Martini advert together. They dated, on and off, for five years.
Amongst the other celebrities at the Capital FM presenter's 40th birthday bash were the TV presenter Dave Berry, the Westlife singer Mark Feehily and the Eastenders actor Sid Owen During the party, Lisa was presented with a black and white birthday cake, decorated with feathers, by a topless male. According to the Metro story, she continued the party late into the night, with a small group of friends in her hotel room.
