Friends like Jay-Z and Beyonce came out to support (with Beyonce providing the evening’ live entertainment) the blonde, awarded by Saks Fifth Avenue for her cancer awareness raising efforts as part of their annual “Unforgettable Evening.”
Paltrow’s godfather, Steven Spielberg, came to support but kept mum on the blonde’s good work, breezing by the red carpet with wife Kate Capshaw.
No matter, as Mrs. Chris Martin certainly has a fan in Tom Hanks. The actor tells Celebuzz he understands and sympathizes with just how famous she is.
“No one has to do this and for Gwyneth to come out and open herself up—she’s the most public woman in the world, to stand in front of a bunch of people and get her picture taken,” Hanks said.
” It’s very good of her because she knows what the stakes are…it’s an easy thing for her to do, but at the same time it’s the last thing she probably needs in her life.”
How empathetic! Moreso, Hanks calls her move to accept the award with mother Blythe Danner a brave one.
“Bravo for her for actually showing up and facing the beasts,” said Hanks.
