Gwyneth Paltrow feted at annual environmental awards
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was celebrated at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank, California on Saturday (October 24) for her work as an environmentalist.
Her mother, Blythe Danner, was on hand to present her with the EMA Green Parent Award and the pair hugged before Paltrow took to the stage to make her acceptance speech.
(SOUNDBITE) Gwyneth Paltrow saying (English):
“I’ve always been struggling at these things about what to say. Instead of being mystified about this one, I felt like tonight I’m ok because I have been a radical hardcore environmentalist, as she (Danner) said, since I was a toddler.”
The awards, which were in their 25th edition, were hosted by singer Lance Bass.
Other winners included Kristin Davis, who took home the EMA Wildlife Conservation Award and ‘Mad Max’ director George Miller who got a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Other attendees included Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jessica Biel.
