Brett Ratner was also spotted attending the party.

J.J. recently chatted about the wait of his upcoming film Star Trek Into Darkness.

“It’s not decades, but it’s long enough that you do have to remind people what the thing is and where it’s at,” J.J. shared. “It would have been better probably for the studio [if we'd put it out earlier], because it would have been fresher in people’s minds. But I’m happy we didn’t rush it. It wouldn’t have been a better movie if it came out earlier, I know that.” More Here! »

Brett Ratner & GLAAD: New Video Series in the Works!

Brett Ratner is teaming up with GLAAD to create a new video series for LGBT Americans.

The campaign will feature a diverse group of celebs, athletes, musicians and politicians “coming out of the closet” as supporters of equality.

“Working together with GLAAD has been a very positive and enlightening experience for me, and I could not be more pleased to be developing this crucial campaign to help educate people that we all share the same humanity,” Brett, who’s pictured inside with producer Brian Grazer and director/producer Bryan Singer, shared. “I am excited to get to work on this program and hope that minds and hearts are opened by what we create.”

Brett resigned from his gig of producing the 2012 Academy Awards back in November after using a gay slur during a screening.

Brett Ratner Resigns as Oscar Show Producer

Brett Ratner will no longer be producing the 2012 Academy Awards.

“I called [the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president] Tom Sherak this morning and resigned as a producer of the 84th Academy Awards telecast. Being asked to help put on the Oscar show was the proudest moment of my career. But as painful as this may be for me, it would be worse if my association with the show were to be a distraction from the Academy and the high ideals it represents,” the 42-year-old director said in a statement (via THR, which first reported the news).

The announcement comes just a few days after Brett used a gay slur during a screening and later apologized for saying false comments about having sex with actress Olivia Munn.

Eddie Murphy, who worked with Brett on the new film, Tower Heist, is set to host the Oscars.

Brett Ratner to Olivia Munn: Sorry, I Lied!

Brett Ratner admitted to lying about having sex with actress Olivia Munn on The Howard Stern Show on Monday (November 7).

“The girl’s a friend of mine,” the 42-year-old Tower Heist director/producer shared. “I said I banged her three times, which wasn’t true. She’s hot! She’s actually a talented actress.”

Listen to Brett‘s interview with Howard below!

Brett also attended a Q&A on Friday, when this gay slur slipped out: “Rehearsal’s for fags.”

He issued an apology this morning, saying, “I apologize for any offense my remarks caused. It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.”

Olivia just finished shooting Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike and is currently in New York for The Daily Show right now before she begins shooting Aaron Sorkin‘s new HBO series.

This February, Brett will be producing the 2012 Academy Awards!
