A who's who of Hollywood turned out last night to remember Bernie Brillstein.

A memorial service was held at UCLA's Royce Hall to pay tribute to the late manager and TV/movie producer, who died last week at 77 due to complications from heart disease.

Longtime client Jennifer Aniston read a passage from Brillstein's book Where Did I Go Right?, and Rob Lowe talked about their 20-plus year relationship, a source at the service reports.

The evening also included a video/photo montage featuring candid shots of Brillstein with such stars as Brad Pitt, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Paramount studio boss Brad Grey, Muppets creator Jim Henson and Miss Piggy along with plenty of family pics.

Jim Belushi and Dan Aykroyd performed as the Blues Brothers for a standing-room-only crowd that included Martin Short, Bill Maher and Lorne Michaels, among many others.

Kermit the Frog closed the service by singing "Rainbow Connection."
