The actress appeared to be fine while walking the red carpet, posing in a white blouse and black pants. She was later spotted inside the venue—a dining room at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel—with model Cara Delevingne, her sister Whitney Heard, and a few other people and appeared to be distressed and uncomfortable. She later exited through a side door.
Amber was honored at the event for her humanitarian work with the American Civil Liberties Union. Cara and iO accepted her award on her behalf from presenter Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born Islam critic and former Dutch politician.
“Our dear friend Amber unfortunately suffered a bit of an emergency earlier this evening and she had to go,” iO said.
iO later praised Amber for her support of the ACLU, saying that the actress “went through one of the most publicized divorces of last decade probably, and all of her ‘winnings’ from that divorce, as many would’ve called it, because many pegged her as a gold digger, she donated to the ACLU.”
