Ed Limato’s Estate Sale
The late superagent’s showbiz-pedigreed house — site of one of the industry’s starriest Oscar parties — is on sale to benefit charity, along with much of its contents.
Ed Limato was the last of the larger-than-life agents, harkening to those pre-Michael Ovitz days before talent agentry went corporate. He represented, at one time or another, Kevin Costner, Meryl Streep, even Ava Gardner, and longtime clients Denzel Washington, Mel Gibson and Richard
Gere. But what Limato — who died in July at age 73 of complications from emphysema — really represented was the kind of grandness, typically called Old Hollywood, that fused a measure of ethical practice with a penchant for having a damn good time. It’s a passing that’s being marked with a Jan. 11 invitation-only memorial at Paramount (with a screening of George Cukor’s A Star Is Born) as well as the sale of his estate and Beverly Hills house to benefit his foundation.
