On Wednesday Scarlett Johansson made an appearance at Cipriani’s in New York City for the amfAR awards where she was honored with one of the two awards of courage.
Scarlett used her acceptance speech time to speak about losing a friend of her mother’s to AIDS in the 1990’s.
“I’d like to thank amfAR for honoring me tonight. I am deeply humbled in the presence of all of those present and not present who spend their lives dedicated to finding a cure for HIV/AIDS,” she told the audience at the event, sponsored by Moët Hennessy.
“I’d like to acknowledge the more than 37 million people around the world today that are still living and struggling with HIV/AIDS and to dedicate this award to all those that have lost their lives and the lives of their loved ones to this disease and when I look at this [award] and when I think of this night, I will always think of Tony.”
