Quiet Upper East Side Italian eatery Elio’s was the place to be in NYC Friday night. The reason? That’s where Gwyneth Paltrow feted her 40th birthday, with a little help from some very famous friends. Around 7:15 p.m., an eyewitness tells Us Weekly guests like Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw and Gwyneth’s mom, Blythe Danner, started showing up. The birthday girl clad in a chic black blouse with white trim, arrived a half-hour later, followed by Jessica Seinfeld, Chelsea Handler and Kristen Wiig.
