The fun continued inside yesterday's Elle Women in Hollywood Awards. The ladies stunned on the red carpet, with honourees like Emma Watson and Sarah Jessica Parker donning Calvin Klein, before heading inside the Beverly Hills Four Seasons for a program emceed by Joel McHale. Joel wasn't the only guy on hand — Robert Pattinson presented a statue to Uma Thurman while John Krasinski also stopped by. Uma, Sarah Jessica and Emma were joined in the winner's circle by other leading ladies like Elle Fanning, Shirley MacLaine, Octavia Spencer, Cate Blanchett, Susan Sarandon and Kristen Wiig. Octavia had the company of her The Helpco-stars Allison Janney, Emma Stone and Ahna O'Reilly to celebrate.
We caught up with a number of stars before the show, including Emma Watson. She accepted Elle's honour for the year's biggest breakout star, despite her relatively lengthy career. Emma told us, "I got my start purely by chance. I was 9 years old. I was in a normal school. Someone basically came to school and took my photograph, and picked me up to go to London for an audition. It was complete chance, a very, very lucky situation. I ended up doing nine auditions to get my first big part. I've been incredibly fortunate. Now, really, it's just about trying to take on different parts and broaden out what I'm able to do."
