Star gala: Julia Roberts honored as an "icon" in the Academy Museum

Large array of stars at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles: George and Amal Clooney, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain, Glenn Close, Emma Stone and Selena Gomez were among the many celebrity guests at the second honorary gala on Sunday night Museum opened in 2021.

The spotlight was on "Pretty Woman" star Julia Roberts (54). The Oscar winner ("Erin Brockovich") was the recipient of the "Icon Award". Roberts has played "iconic figures and unforgettable roles" in her long career, as museum boss Jacqueline Stewart had previously acknowledged the actress in a statement.

British director Steve McQueen ("12 Years a Slave") and Scottish actress Tilda Swinton ("Grand Budapest Hotel") were also honored for their services to the film.

Last year, the Italian film legend Sophia Loren and the Ethiopian director Haile Gerima were celebrated. The 2021 fundraiser gala raised more than $11 million in donations. This time, too, donations should flow into museum programs.
