Postby mcv on Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:43 pm

Tom Hanks is confirmed to present Roberts with the honor at the upcoming event, set for Friday, Oct. 13, at Ron Burkle's iconic Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills.
Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks have a new collaboration in the works: the amfAR Gala Los Angeles.

The Academy Award-winning actress will be honored with amfAR's Award of Courage in "recognition of her profound commitment to the fight against AIDS and countless other humanitarian causes," according to the org. Hanks, a longtime friend and two-time co-star, will take the stage to present Roberts with the award.

The black-tie event — presented by Harry Winston and M•A•C Viva Glam — is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 13. Though previous events had been held at Milk Studios, this year's outing is moving across town and will be held at Ron Burkle's Historic Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills. Also supporting the amfAR Gala Los Angeles are signature sponsors Cadillac, Moët Hennessy and PatBO, while Delta is serving as the official airline.

With the honor, Roberts will see her name join a list of previous amfAR honorees including Charlize Theron, Ryan Murphy, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Lopez, CAA's Kevin Huvane, James Franco, Miley Cyrus, Andy Cohen and Cher, among others.

Roberts and Hanks previously starred in the films Charlie Wilson's War and Larry Crowne. She also voiced a lead character in The Ant Bully, which Hanks and his company, Playtone, produced. To date, the amfAR Gala Los Angeles has raised more than $11 million. More information about the event can be found here.

According to an Instagram post, James Corden is the ceremony host. I hope it means she will do the Late Late show with Corden too.

And Cindy! They have never posed for a proper picture together. And they practically have the same circle of friends.

But a picture with Denzel is all we need here :)

yes, i'd love to see her and cindy together: they are like the epitome of 90s american beauties. and they have the clooney and gere connection!

now that she is such a good shape i hope she wears fancy dresses for woner promotion, but this is a "serous" event, so i don't think her classic mini-dress outfit would be appropriate. i will probably be a black suit... even scarlett johannson wore a black suit wheen she got this honor last year.

Since it is a black tie gala, and since I miss seeing her in a suit, I hope she wears a black suit with an actual tie. Only models and Sharon Stone, who is an amfar regular, wear fancy dresses LOL.

do you people think she will comment about the weinstein thing?

i guess, the whole publicity for wonder is bad timing. she worked with the guy for august osage county but her campaign was derailed by her sister's suicide so i'm sure her relationship with that guy isn't noteworthy but she might be asked about the guy.

i don't think they will ask her about weinstein at an event like this. and she's very careful, i don't think she'll comment it.

"She has so far said nothing about the allegations. Her publicist did not respond to requests for comment."

We will need another thread for this.
