It was the Academy Awards, not the Emmys, but "True Blood" star Ryan Kwanten apparently wasn't aware of that. He tried to get into an Academy Awards party on Sunday night, but he was rebuffed -- embarassingly.
Kwanten arrived to Craig's in West Hollywood along with a celebrity handler (not unlike a wrangler, some say) Sunday night. However, when they came face-to-face with the front door security team, they found out that just like a vampire, without an invitation, you can't enter.
The exchange between the security team, Kwanten, and his handler was caught on video (embedded). "You and 100 other people," the security guard can be heard saying.
According to Kwanten and his handler, they had been personally invited to the party by Craig himself and presented a note along those lines. However, the security personnel weren't impressed by the claim.
Kwanten's unnamed handler then took out his cell phone and managed to get someone on the phone to vouch for the pair. However, even after security spoke to the person on the other end of the line, they still wouldn't let Kwanten in.
Eventually, Kwanten and his handler took their note and left. It wasn't, though, before Kwanten's friend asked the guard which company he worked for, implying, of course, that there would be repercussions for not letting Kwanten into the party.
It was a sad Sunday for Kwanten, and totally different from his experience at an earlier party. On Sunday, Ryan Kwanten was seen arriving and welcomed at the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party held at the Pacific Design Center on Sunday in West Hollywood, Calif.
