AceShowbiz - Six Hollywood actresses and a filmmaker received special attention on Monday night (Oct 15) as Elle Magazine paid them tribute at its 14th Annual Women in Hollywood held at Beverly Hills' Four Seasons Hotel.
All profiled in the November issue of the magazine, they were %cScarlett Johansson%, %cKate Bosworth%, %cJennifer Connelly%, %cAmy Adams%, %cLauren Bacall%, %cDiane Lane%, and director %cJulie Taymor%, whose latest work "Across the Universe" was smoothly released in theaters on September 21, 2007. The lineup thereby became a mix of young Hollywood and experienced veterans with 22-year-old Johansson being the youngest.
Johansson was bestowed with an Icon Award, given to her by her "In Good Company" co-star %cTopher Grace% while Adams brought home the Chanel Spotlight Award. Lane, in the meantime, accepted her prize from close friend %cElizabeth Perkins%, known for her role in %cTom Hanks%-starrer "Big."
"There's a lot more opportunity for young women, and that's great, and I like to think that I was there to help pave a few stones," Lane said in her acceptance speech. "It's wonderful to have all the different stages of a woman's life acknowledged and appreciated."
Founded in France in 1945, Elle now is considered to be the world’s largest fashion magazine with 39 international editions in over 60 countries. For this year's Women in Hollywood, the magazine chose to highlight figures that have made a positive impact on the film industry during a time when other celebrities like %cBritney Spears%, %cParis Hilton%, and %cLindsay Lohan% continually find themselves in the spotlight for bad behavior.
