Insiders have long known that Table No. 1 at the Time 100 gala is generally not the best seat in the house, but that norm appears to have been shattered at last Tuesday night’s event when “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon broke bread with “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers” star Brie Larson and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Fallon and Larson gabbed about the dinner when the star pulled up as a guest on the NBC show that aired Wednesday night. “It was like a dinner party with Nancy Pelosi,” Fallon said.
Usually, the hottest table of the night is the one near the center of the second tier, where Time President and Editor-in-Chief Ed Felsenthal was breaking bread with Sandra Oh and Glenn Close and getting a great view of the night’s entertainment featuring Taylor Swift.
