Mia Wasikowska - Water Leak Puts A Damper On Jane Eyre Party

Subscribe Mia Wasikowska

The organisers of a star-studded party to celebrate Mia Wasikowska's new film Jane Eyre were thrown into a panic on Wednesday (09Mar11) after a burst pipe flooded the New York venue.
The Alice In Wonderland star takes on the title role in the new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, opposite Michael Fassbender and Dame Judi Dench.
The film was screened for a celebrity-packed audience, including Glenn Close and Zoe Kravitz, at Manhattan's Tribeca Grand Hotel and guests were invited to enjoy an afterparty at the Soho Grand.
But plans were thrown into chaos when it was revealed the bar at the Soho Grand had been flooded by a burst water pipe.
A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six that the banquet manager at the Soho Grand, Victor Ryan, ran down the street to break the bad news to studio press agents, telling them, "You cannot have your party at the Soho... there's a waterfall from the ceiling showering the entire bar. The room is now under two inches of water."
Organisers had to switch venues at the last minute and ended up hosting the bash at the Tribeca Grand instead.
