How do you know it's a premiere? If Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson are all strolling through Westwood at the same time, it's a pretty safe bet that klieg lights are part of the picture.

How-do-you-know-gallery The red carpet Monday night for "How Do You Know" drew the comedy's stars and other cast members, including Teyonah Parris and Kathryn Hahn, plus writer-producer-director James L. Brooks, at the Regency Village Theater.

Also spotted: Seth Rogen, Jane Fonda, musician Cisco Adler, Tony Danza and Marilu Henner — the last two alumni of Brooks' sitcom "Taxi." Click the pic of Nicholson, right, to see more pictures from the red carpet.

Across from the theater, a pop-up tent hosted Witherspoon, Wilson, Rudd and others for the after-party. 

Nicholson (who'd hosted daughter Jennifer and her sons Duke and Sean Norfleet at the premiere) was a no-show afterward, but Jane Fonda and her date lived it up, sipping Ultimat vodka cocktails and dancing in a private booth. Witherspoon circulated without her man, agent Jim Toth, but was in good spirits nonetheless, an onlooker tells us.

Also in a great mood was Wilson, who we're told commanded attention "almost all night," hanging out with Rudd and a few pals in a booth.
