It was a heartfelt affair celebrating the new Netflix show.

Talk about a love fest. In celebration of their new Netflix series Love, star Gillian Jacobs, co-creator Lesley Arfin and Opening Ceremony threw a food- and friend-filled fete on Wednesday night at The Standard in Hollywood.

Held at Alma's pop-up restaurant inside the hotel (the eatery's Downtown Los Angeles location was voted the country's best restaurant by Bon Appetit mag before shuttering last year), the party drew a star-studded crowd including the show's star and co-creator Paul Rust (also husband to Arfin), Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste, Kim Gordon, Nina Clemente, Frankie Rayder and Carrie Brownstein, who turned up to toast the Judd Apatow-produced series.

On the heels of Valentine's Day, a few stars opened up on matters of the heart.

Celebrity crush:

Ed Droste: "Tom Hardy."

Kim Gordon: "Oh, that's easy. Taylor Kitsch. I'll also say Christian Bale"

Carrie Brownstein: "Greta Garbo, if she could come back from the grave. She's really classy. Also, Courtney B. Vance is really killing it in American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.

Busy Philipps: "I have often thought that Colin Farrell and I would really be friends more than anything else, but we would really enjoy each other's company. I think he would really find me funny."

Best tips for going through a break-up:

Gordon: "Listen to a lot of gangster rap."

Droste: "I would say, surround yourself with sleep, friends and exercise. And time. It's really cliche, but you've got to deal with it.

Go-to love songs:

Gordon: "My favorites are usually break-up records, like Angel Olsen's Burn Your Fire for No Witness."

Brownstein: "'What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life,' by Frank Sinatra. It's a little crazy but it's beautiful."

Philipps: "I can't even think of any right now, except for what's on the Hamilton soundtrack."
