Fred Armisen Satisfies His Sweet Tooth Over Oscar Weekend


The pouring rain didn’t stop Fred Armisen from his food cravings on Saturday afternoon at the Independent Spirit Awards.

The band leader of Seth Meyers‘s inaugural season of Late Night popped into the Breyers Gelato Indulgences lounge connected to the awards location, and walked away with treats from the ice cream company.

But it wasn’t a full sweets fest for the star, who also sampled some goodies from Sabra snacks.

While he was there, he mostly “kept a low profile while people tried to talk to him,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Accompanied by what appeared to be his publicist, who he kept joking was his “wife,” the Portlandia star carried his own swag and spent a lot of time on the phone. But he wasn’t rude to others in the suite. When one reporter giddily asked for an interview, he graciously obliged.

Angela Bassett, Rosario Dawson, Elisabeth Rohm, Michael Sheen and Zoe Kravitz were among the other names who made their way through the V.I.P. gifting spot mid-show.
