Hollywood’s leading ladies, including Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, Gal Gadot, Shonda Rhimes, Sherry Lansing, and Sarah Silverman, spoke at The Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 at the 25th annual THR Women in Entertainment breakfast. Silverman made the opening remarks, calling on the industry to “reject this toxic drug in the air that makes us feel like the success of one woman can only come at the failure of another.” Lawrence won the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, and during her acceptance speech, said she hopes they can together create an industry “where outspoken women matter, where outspoken women lead.”
