The event, presented by Lifetime and held at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire hotel, highlighted philanthropic work of women in Hollywood’s entertainment industry.


DreamWorks Studios chief executive officer Stacey Snider was also honored for her work with City Year, and J Brand jeans unveiled a charitable collaboration with the nonprofit, which aims to reduce high school drop-out rates.


“Being here, among all these amazing women who have accomplished so many groundbreaking things is absolutely extraordinary,” said Wilde, who was honored for her work in Haiti with Artists for Peace and Justice.


Other attendees included Demi Moore, Angela Lansbury, Hugh Jackman and Warren Beatty.


“I have no idea what I’m wearing, but the suit fits, so that’s all that matters. Plus, today it’s really about my wife and these incredible women,” said Beatty, who attended with Bening and the actress’ parents, who were also celebrating their 61st wedding anniversary.


“Oh dear, at my age you want to be comfortable above all else,” said Lansbury, who wore a Calvin Klein pantsuit and blazer.
