TOM HANKS MAY BE SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, BUT PLENTY OF his celebrity pals are looking bleary-eyed in Manhattan and Los Angeles as well after a week of benefits, receptions and movie premieres. Fittingly, Hanks unveiled Sleepless on June 21 in New York, the city that never sleeps, before a starlit crowd that included Madonna, Chynna Phillips and her steady squeeze, Billy Baldwin. (Meg Ryan, Hanks's costar, was busy filming Significant Other in L.A. and couldn't make it.)

On the left coast, the globally conscious—including Harry Belafonte, Mary Steenburgen and Denzel Washington—gathered in Beverly Hills on June 17 to honor exited Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Then, two days after that, Luke Perry, Sarah Gilbert and two more Baldwin brothers, Stephen and Daniel, cued up at a daylong Hollywood pool tournament that raised more than $20,000 for AIDS Project Los Angeles. By week's end, even young Hollywood was showing signs of weariness. "I can't help it," yawned pool shark Phil Buckman (Drexell's Class), 23, who had stayed up into the early morning to continue work on a made-for-TV movie. "I just keep asking myself when I'm going to be able to go home and get back to sleep."
