at "A Place Called Home"
Among the honorees was Nicole Richie, looking slim and svelte in a silk sheath, who received her award from her Superstar Dad, Lionel. She admitted to a period of self destructive behavior during her teen years, and is trying to send the message to young people that one can be cool and still be a "stand up person".

Another beauty, Cameron Diaz recently became involved in saving coral reefs. She and her pals, Jessica Alba and Kid Rock returned from filming an episode of MTV's Trippin, and were blown away by the coral reefs, which are facing some major challenges. Cameron even taped a VHI Special on their behalf.
With supporters like Nick Lachey and his better half, Jessica Simpson, Kelly Hu (Scorpion King) and philanthropist Mara New (Golden Needle Awards) the oceans our world are sure to be saved on the Hollywood Beat.
