Sally Field Gets Tom Hanks' Support at Kennedy Center Honors!

Sally Field walks the red carpet while attending the 2019 Kennedy Center Honors event on Sunday (December 8) at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The two-time Oscar-winning actress was one of the five honorees at this year’s event and she received support from her Forrest Gump co-star Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson!

The other honorees this year were Earth, Wind & Fire, singer Linda Ronstadt, the creators of Sesame Street, and music director and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas.

Some of the other celebs who stepped out to help celebrate the honorees included Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lucy Liu, Kevin Kline, Pierce Brosnan, Ben Vereen, LL Cool J, Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw, Maura Tierney, David Foster, Audra McDonald, and Cedric the Entertainer.

Sadly, earlier in the day it was confirmed that the longtime puppeteer of Sesame Street‘s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch had passed away.

FYI: Lucy is wearing a Georges Chakra Couture gown. Audra is wearing a Romona Keveža Collection gown.
