Drew Barrymore managed to sneak past press at a special dinner honouring her long-time friend Steven Spielberg.
The actress avoided photographers and the red carpet entirely, instead heading straight into the gala party at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles where the director was receiving Americas Democratic Legacy Award.
Steven received the honour from the Anti-Defamation League which fights against bigotry, prejudice and anti-Semitism.
The organisation describes the director as "a true champion of human rights through his film and television projects".
Previous recipients have included former US president Ronald Reagan, John F Kennedy, Colin Powell and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Speaking as the evening got under way, Steven described receiving the honour as "wonderful".
American Idol's Adam Lambert, who was there to perform for the evening, said he was looking forward to seeing Drew and Steven together.
"I love ET, I love that movie - it's fantastic!" he laughed.
"I'm going to sing the national anthem and hopefully warm everybody up for the night. I sang it a bunch of times in high school at various sporting events, so I went back and kind of dusted off the words. It's ready to go - shined it, buffed it and I'm ready to sing it."
