THE PLAYERS Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Banks, Tom Hanks, Nick Cannon, Robert Downey Jr., Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green, Alyson Hannigan, Hilary Duff, Amanda Peet, Molly Sims, Cyma Zarghami, Bryan Oshiro THE HIGHLIGHTS Tinseltown’s newest parents came out to the nonprofit daytime event, where Elizabeth Banks presented Reese Witherspoon with the Grace Kelly Award for being a role-model parent. During her poignant speech, the Oscar-winning actress discussed her long and familial connection to the cause, saying, “My mother has been a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) nurse for over 35 years at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville. Every weekend when I was a teenager I would bring her and the other nurses coffee and doughnuts, and visit all the little babies and see them in their incubators. I would watch their tireless effort to take care of these moms and babies.” Photos courtesy of Alexandra Wyman and Michael Buckner/Getty Images
