A host of heavy hitting actresses came out for Elle Magazine’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute to honor nine amazing women in the business at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills Monday.

Among the honorees were out bisexual actress and Mildred Pierce star Evan Rachel Wood, Naomi Watts, Viola Davis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Aniston, Freida Pinto, Dreamworks exec. Stacey Snider, Elizabeth Olsen – who received the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Award and Barbra Streisand who received the L’Oreal Paris Legend Award.

There were also plenty of women on hand to pay homage to the honorees including Amber Heard, Laura Dern, Robin Wright, Chelsea Handler, Nicole Richie, Reese Witherspoon and Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow.

While presenters had plenty of  accolades for the honorees Barbra Streisand was at the receiving end of compliments from the likes of Pinto, Aniston and Bigelow.

But true to their comic stylings Witherspoon delivered one of the funniest speeches of the night when presented Aniston with her award.

Witherspoon, who played Rachel’s sister in two episodes of Friends told the crowd that she and Aniston hit it off immediately and became close pals.

"There are not that many people actually who have this incredible combination of sex appeal and complete lovability," Witherspoon said, according to E!online. "You just want to get your nails done with her and you want to make out with her—at least I do.

"And that's what we do sometimes on Saturdays. First we get our nails done—so cute!—and then we make out. It's totally awesome."
