Nicole Kidman, Glenn Close and Hugh Jackman were among those honoured at the Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (04.11.18).
The 'Big Little Lies' star was presented with the Career Achievement Honour in recognition of her years in the movie industry, and admitted it was "incredibly validating" and gave her the "opportunity" to throw her "support and voice" behind things she is "passionate" about.
However, the 51-year-old star admitted she didn't go into acting just for acclaim or awards.
She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I've just always wanted to act since I was a little girl. I needed to. And I started it at school, I went to drama school, and I've just continued on the path and it's lead me to the most wonderful places and it's given me so much joy."
