PEOPLE's Photo Booth
"I feel like I need to be shrunk!" quipped Entourage's Adrian Grenier when he stepped into PEOPLE's backstage photo booth – which reminded him of the room in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Mike Teavee was made miniature. Later, at the HBO afterparty, he changed out of his tux into jeans, a T-shirt and sneakers and hit the dance floor.
As soon as the Medium star, who won the Emmy for best actress in a drama, stepped into the booth, her fiancé, Thomas Jane, handed her a cell phone and she called their 2-year-old daughter, Harlow. "Hi, Baby, are you watching TV?" she asked, then told her that Mommy had won, adding, "I love you, Baby!"
The Lost star, whose show won for best drama, said he was eager to get back to his date – wife Margherita. Still, he waited patiently as Geena Davis, star of ABC's Commander in Chief, posed for her pics. As Davis stepped out of the booth, he bowed as though she really were the President of the United States.
Barton complained about how hot it was in the photo booth, and thanked photographer Michael Larsen when he turned on the fan used for effect. How has she enjoyed being back at work on The O.C.? "It's been really nice," Barton told PEOPLE. She also set the record straight on her personal life: "I don't have a boyfriend. I’m unattached."
This was the Monk star's second PEOPLE photo booth appearance in a week – he'd stopped by the previous Sunday at the Creative Arts Emmys, where he was a presenter. This time, the Emmy winner (for best actor in a comedy) came with his wife of 13 years, actress Brooke Adams. They smooched while he waited his turn to be photographed.
DAN RATHER & TOM BROKAW
Although the veteran anchors maintained Serious Newsman expressions for most of their poses, Brokaw was cracking jokes the whole time. "We'll show our tattoos, how about that?" he said. Then he threw back his head in a mock glamor pose and cracked, "This is the Diane Sawyer shot."
When the Boston Legal star walked into the booth, he put his Emmy (for best actor in a drama) on the floor next to him and said, "We could do it this way," then stared into the camera pensively. Photographer Larsen fired off a few shots and then asked for a different pose. "No," said Spader, who wouldn't budge, "just like this."
QUENTIN TARANTINO & MARG HELGENBERGER
The Emmy presenters and pals (he directed last season's C.S.I. finale) had a blast goofing around in the booth – but Tarantino couldn't help playing director. When Larsen asked Helgenberger to "use the wall" – that is, lean back for a pose – Tarantino took over: "Use the wall, baby! That's it! The wall!" Afterward, he commented, "That's some of the best use of wall I've ever seen."
