With her recent appearance as Blair Warner in ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience, Jennifer Aniston was on top of the world, especially after receiving the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2021 Power 100 Women in Entertainment event held at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles. The actress, who is now 52, took to the podium to express her disbelief at the thought of receiving such an award when she was a 19-year-old waitress auditioning for off-Broadway shows.

Congratulations are in order for Jennifer, who made it to the podium during the Wednesday afternoon event at Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles. Her achievement was well-deserved!
The actress referred to the award as the ‘highest level of honor’ while delivering her speech.
Expressing genuine admiration, I must say that you have truly revolutionized the entertainment industry for women. Your remarkable achievements as the first-ever female studio runner, backed by numerous box office hits and acclaimed Academy Award-winning movies have been nothing short of awe-inspiring. Thanks to your pioneering efforts, women today have a voice and a platform in the industry like never before. What’s even more remarkable is that you’ve done it all while remaining one of the kindest and most generous individuals out there. It’s no wonder why Sherry, a former actress, CEO of Paramount Pictures, and 20th Century Fox’s ex-president of production, holds you in such high esteem.
