London, (ANI): Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Kruger and
Hilary Swank were honoured at Elle magazine's annual Women in
Hollywood awards in Los Angeles on 18 October, 2010. The
extravagant ceremony paid tribute to the female stars for their
impact on the film industry.
Others who received a nod included Jodie Foster, Diane Keaton,
Sofia Coppola and Kerry Washington. Paltrow was presented with her
prize by her Proof co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, who took the stage and
told the crowd about working with the multi-talented actress.
"Bottom line, she is not a mere mortal like the rest of us...
She is an internet-savvy, award-winning, lifestyle guru, making all
of us look lazy. She doesn't just find a nice guy to settle down
with - she marries a rock star and then domesticates him. She
doesn't just cook - she goes to Spain with Mario Batali and then
domesticates him! She is not just a lifestyle guru, but she invents
a whole new fitness movement and then convinces me to try it, and I
do it, and I am, therefore, domesticated... sweating my a** off in
spandex, which is humbling and embarrassing," the Daily Star quoted
him as saying.
Harrison Ford admitted he was overwhelmed by the star-studded
ceremony, because it serves as proof that women have secured their
place as major players in Hollywood. He said: "(This event) came to
be back in the days when they said, There were no good parts for
women and Women aren't highly regarded. (Now) women run Hollywood.
Absolutely run Hollywood. And I'm glad."
