While answering phones at their respective stations inside the AMC Universal CityWalk 19, Julia warmly greeted fellow Oscar winner and legendary pop diva, Cher. The one-hour charity drive also aired live from New York and Nashville and featured celebrities like Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
It was nice to see that the different Oscar-winning duo – Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx, discussed the dire effects of climate change at ABC News’ Times Square Studio.
It was a surprisingly serious moment from the perpetually-single Hollywood bad boys better known for living large with yachts and private jets.
