Just after 8 p.m. Thursday night, Facinelli arrived solo a Hennessy-sponsored party at the Highline Studios in New York City. Wearing slate-gray jeans and a black leather jacket, the sedate-looking actor, 38, posed for photos on the black carpet before heading inside the party.
Facinelli spent time mingling and engaged in earnest conversation with an older male pal while lounging on a sofa in a roped-off V.I.P area.
