A Celebrity Salute to Aging

It was Sharon Stone celebrating her 49th birthday on Saturday, but it was Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith who caused a scene.

Sharon, Demi, and Melanie Griffith had a celebratory celeb lunch at The Ivy, then made separate exits from the posh eatery -- each maximizing their individual paparazzi time. The photogs were generous with the birthday girl -- making plenty of room for the Stone to pass -- but were less friendly with Moore, forcing her to push her way through the pack. Moore was so blinded by flashbulbs, she didn't even notice she was getting into the wrong car.

Melanie Griffith became irritated with the paps, yelling, "This is ridiculous!" as she tried to get to her car. For publicity, having a birthday party at The Ivy is second only to throwing a naked birthday bash in the middle of Rodeo Drive. Next time, perhaps the three hottie milfs should consider Chuck E. Cheese.
