The 2016 GQ Men of the Year Awards were held on Tuesday night in London and some of Hollywood’s most dapper men and women were in attendance.
Some of the big winners of the night included Star Wars’ John Boyega, nabbing the trophy for Vertu Breakthrough Actor, Calvin Harris, who picked up the award for Solo Artist of the Year Award and model Bella Hadid, who garnered a win for Model of the Year.
But the biggest moment of the night was the honoring of legendary producer and songwriter Nile Rodgers, who took home the award for Icon of the Year. “I know you’re not supposed to cry at stuff like this,” an emotional Rodgers said.
After explaining that the late “David Bowie changed my life,” the producer went on to detail his first time in London. “When I first came to London, I got robbed. They stole my passport so I had to stay in London over the weekend until the Embassy opened so I could get a new passport.”
He continued, “My girlfriend at the time took me out to see a band called Roxy Music … I’ve never seen rock ‘n’ roll people dressed up in couture clothing … I founded my band Chic.”
He added, “Back in the day when we would hit the stage, everybody would say they were GQ’d out … Now, to get a GQ icon award is amazing to me.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
