    Stars like them and, probably, other big names.

    What's a "paty"? You need to capitalise the surnames of people too, so it's Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio (this is a slightly unusual surname which explains the unusual capitalisation).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    At first glance I assumed it was a simple typo for paRty. On further reflection, I think it might suggest that the OP 'feels' somehow that 'a' represents /a:/. It can, but more often than not it doesn't.
