The highly anticipated 9th Annual G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala was held last night (January 14th) at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom in Hollywood with a plethora of Aussie celebs walking the carpet to promote Australian tourism in the USA.
Â Walking the carpet was new Qantas Ambassador Miranda Kerr looking divine in a white Michael Kors dress, alongside John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, Delta Goodrem, Teresa Palmer, Ryan Kwanten, Yvonne Strahovski, Laura Csortan, Renee Bargh, Jackie Weaver, Jamie Drurie, Simon Baker, Daniela Ruah, Alex O’Loughlin, Cody Simpson, Guy Pierce and Kate Winslet.
With nearly 1,000 guests at the soiree, Guy Pearce was presented the Film and Television Award by Mildred Pierce co-star Kate Winslet.Â Upon being receiving the accolade, Pearce said:
“I’m honored and a bit embarrassed about both events to be honest.”
Miss Winslet then said, “I have to resist killing Guy’s wife Kate because she gets to wake up every day with Mike from Neighbors. I was in love with Mike. I would fake illness to skip school and watch Neighbors at 1:45pm and then the repeat at 5:30pm. I only just found out you were also in Home and Away. Thank god I didn’t know that then or I wouldn’t have gotten a f**king education!”
To this, Pearce got a laugh from the crowd as he shot back, “I hope you don’t think kind words like that means we’ll get to have sex again. You can’t turn up to these things and expect a free ride.”
In case you missed the announcement, Miranda is a new Qantas Ambassador and is currently walking lots of carpets right now in the lead up to the Golden Globes which we can hopefully assume she’ll be walking with hubby Orlando Bloom tomorrow.
