Corrigan serves up a treat for Hollywood stars

Hollywood legends Samuel L Jackson and Dionne Warwick took time out of their charity preparations for dinner at one of Dublin's best-known restaurants.

The pair, who are in town for a Valentine's fundraising ball for Keith Duffy's Irish Autism Action tomorrow night, joined celebrity chef Richard Corrigan at his Bentley's restaurant in Stephen's Green to taste some of the Michelin-star chef's best dishes.

And the Pulp Fiction star (61) was obviously impressed with the top chef -- as he was grinning from ear to ear. As Jackson left to return to his hotel, he shook hands with Corrigan, who looked deservedly chuffed at pleasing one of Hollywood's best-known actors.

Both he and Warwick brought their old-school Hollywood glamour to the capital as the 70-year-old singer showed how she earned her reputation as one of the industry's undeniable queens of glam -- fighting the sub-zero temperatures in a long, black fur coat.

Paired with killer black heels and her signature cropped hair cut, Warwick was outshining restaurant-goers half her age.

Yesterday, Keith Duffy was promoting the launch of Ireland's First One Stop website for Autism Information, autismsupport.ie. The fundraiser has been organised in conjunction with the actor's Samuel L Jackson Foundation.
