For a woman who is always shy in front of public, and barely say anything to promote her career, by giving such a long and inspirational speech at the Variety’s Power of Women – to show her support to Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profitable organisation which focus on helping people to lives healthier in a healthier environment, it just making us to admire her even more and feel so proud to be one of her fans.
Variety’s Power of Women L.A:
Variety‘s Power of Women: Los Angeles, presented by Lifetime, was held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday, gathering an intimate group of some of the most philanthropic women in Hollywood at an exclusive luncheon.
This year’s program was kicked off by host Judd Apatow, who provided a mix of comedy and seriousness when addressing not only the trailblazing women in the room, but recent events in the news from Harvey Weinstein to Donald Trump.
Variety’s co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller’s opening remarks thanked Variety and PMC’s Jay Penske for being a leader in the industry who supports “extraordinary and powerful women.”
In a week that saw scandal emerge for the industry after “decades and decades of abuse of power [and] sense of entitlement” from powerful men, Eller was glad to acknowledge the women speaking up and speaking out right now and implored more to do so.
This year’s honorees included a cross-section of entertainment leaders from film, television, and music, recognized for their work giving “voices to the voiceless” with charities that range from environmental and education programs to child and animal rights’ organizations.
Michelle Pfeiffer, who was representing Environmental Working Group (EWG), spoke about her history with the company that she compared to a “wilderness guide to the deep, dark forest of toxic chemicals,” noting her interest in the environment came early on, when she was reading labels on common home and kids’ products like sunscreen and toothpaste and realized how unsafe they could be.
“At one point I was mixing my own bug repellent in my kitchen, spraying my kids with vodka. I’m not proud,” Pfeiffer said. “How do you want to know what non-toxic products are best? EWG will tell you. I came to EWG for the advice, but I stayed for the advocacy. The fight is real, and it’s never been so important.”
