Elle Celebrates Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda

 - Oct 8, 2008
Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Eva Mendes and dozens of other female Hollywood stars and musicians gathered at Elle magazine’s 15th annual Women in Hollywood tribute to honor seven noteworthy women in the entertainment business.

Hosted by Chelsea Handler, the event honored the old and young Hollywood, including Halle Berry, Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Sigourney Weaver, Isla Fisher and director Catherine Hardwicke.

"Someday hopefully it won’t be necessary to allocate a special evening to celebrate where we are and how far we’ve come," Weaver said. "Someday women writers, producers and crew members will be so commonplace, and roles and salaries for actresses will outstrip those for men, and pigs will fly."

Anne Hathaway said it’s remarkable that at 25 she’s able to say her role as a woman in Hollywood is purely as an artist, not a cause. "I’m free to play my characters as I imagine them, far beyond what size jeans they wear."
