Mildred Drummond. She does speak to Adams' character but they are not even in focus at the time and are leaving the scene.

Tas disagreed with the rating and said:
I don't really want to disagree as the exchange only lasts a couple of seconds and the film is 144mins long but technically . . .

Mildred is introduced by name to Peggy by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Mildred does ask Peggy if she'd like to come with her - but they are indeed out of focus when this happens and you can barely hear them over the din of the party.
