LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood may be cutthroat, but Elle's Women in Hollywood celebration is all about sisterhood.

The magazine honored Reese Witherspoon, Melissa McCarthy, Marion Cotillard, Naomie Harris, Shailene Woodley, Eva Marie Saint and director Nancy Meyers at its 20th annual event Monday at the Four Seasons hotel.

All were introduced by admiring colleagues, and each shared how women had helped them succeed. Chelsea Handler said Witherspoon helped her get a movie role. McCarthy was introduced by Kathy Bates, whom she cited as an inspiration. Meyers said studio heads Sherry Lansing and Amy Pascal supported her career, and it's up to women to everywhere to vote with their wallets to support projects helmed by and starring women.

She noted there are no Men in Hollywood events.
