Looking gorgeous with her blonde hair worn down in loose waves cascading from a deep side-swept part she had a stunningly gorgeous hair clip from Fred Leighton holding one side of her softly waved tresses back off her face.
Ryan teased Elizabeth about the color of her floor length gown telling the actress she looked almost nude.
Elizabeth laughed and told Ryan “yes, the gown is almost nude in color” but it was actually called “pale pink or blush”. The gown which had the controversial color was designed by the famous designer J. Mendel.
Ryan asked the lovely Elizabeth “what are you excited about?” Elizabeth said she was “excited to see lots” of big name movie stars at the awards. She also said she was co-presenting an award – Best Screenplay – with her best buddy Seth Rogan. Elizabeth and Seth co-starred in 40 Year Old Virgin.

Ryan asked Elizabeth who was her favorite in the category she was presenting for. She said “I don’t know, I don’t want to get in trouble” by saying the wrong names.
She laughed and said she is “already in trouble” because she and Seth Rogan “still had not figured out what they were going to say” when they presented the awards. Ryan asked Elizabeth where Seth was and she replied “he’s off the radar somewhere” but he will eventually surface. She told Ryan “I’ll find him, he’s around here somewhere.”
Ironically when Seth and Elizabeth presented the award for Best Screenplay Seth made a comment about wishing he had been at the awards in the 80s so that he could have done cocaine with Micky Rourke which was somewhat controversial.
Elizabeth laughed at Seth’s comments and the two appeared to be very comfortable together. She certainly looked stunning and had the best “signature jewelry” piece in the form of her gorgeous hair clip.
