““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
Going Places: Attention, Ferrari Fans
One of the premier events for car aficionados, the Palm Beach [Fla.] Cavallino Classic, takes place January 22 to 27 at the Breakers Hotel in that city. Ferrari owners will find much to see and do, including a track meet; a touring rally with vintage and classic Ferraris; and-the high point of the show-the Concorso d'Eleganza, which will feature more than 100 classic cars.
Coinciding with the Cavallino Classic, Jet Aviation's La Bella Macchina will take place at the company's West Palm Beach facility on January 24. The invitation-only cocktail reception will celebrate Ferraris, private aircraft, yachts and other luxuries. Among the highlights of the annual event-which attracts thousands of Ferrari owners, socialites and business people- are tours of the aircraft on display. Info:
