Theron mingles, Upton dances in D.C.
Upon arrival at Friday night’s First Amendment party in Washington, actress Charlize Theron was whisked past the red carpet and down into the VIP lounge — so fast that the mob of media types barely had time to recognize her.
“I totally missed that. How did I miss that?” bemoaned ABC’s Rick Klein as he realized that the “Young Adult” star had just passed right by him.

In a roped-off VIP section, Theron mingled with actress Rosario Dawson, while political types Reggie Love and Abby Huntsman Livingston chatted up journos including Luke Russert, Willie Geist and John Heilemann.
And in the thick of it all, with the music blaring, Sports Illustrated model and famous political niece Kate Upton tore up a dance floor of her own making.
Also spotted at the bash: actor Woody Harrelson, Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys, Chace Crawford of “Gossip Girls,” Naseem Pedrad of “Saturday Night Live,” actor Richard Kind, “Modern Family”‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Joseph Mazzello of “The Social Network” and Matthew Morrison of “Glee.”
