Charlize Theron's Jumpin' At The GLAAD Media Awards

Charlize Theron gets the presidential heartbeat racing at the GLAAD Media Awards

It's not difficult for Charlize Theron to look good.

She was clearly blessed by three benevolent fairy godmothers at birth, and she proudly showed off those blessings at the GLAAD Media Awards in El Lay on Saturday.

The actress, who was also a presenter alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, was devoid of all flaws in a black Jason Wu jumpsuit, Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, and a thick chain belt.

Save for a bold fuchsia lip, she barely had any makeup on, and her pixie cut was easily styled with a dollop of pomade.

Perfection!

Jennifer Lawrence Honors President Clinton At The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards! All Of List Night's Winners HERE!

What an INCREDIBLE night!

The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards were held last night at the JW Marriott in El Lay, where the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Betty White, Darren Criss, and host Drew Barrymore honored films like Perks of Being A Wallflower, shows like The New Normal, and the former leader of the free world himself, Bill Clinton, for the advancements they've made toward promoting equality and progress for for the LGBT community!

And who better to introduce the ex-President with the Advocate for Change Award than the always HIGHlarious and charming J-Law?!

The Academy Award-winning starlet, who hit the stage Harvey Weinstein and First Daughter alum Chelsea Clinton, apparently flubbed Bill's name during her speech, but the Commander-in-Chief took it in stride, and while accepting his honor, even joked:

"I don't know why Harvey made Jennifer do that. She really was like 2-years-old when I became president. I met her backstage and she looked like she was touring the Museum of Natural History."

"It's sort of humbling when you get to be my age when your child knows more than you do about everything. Chelsea and her gay friends have modeled to me how we should all treat each other regardless of our sexual orientation or any other artificial difference that divides us. Many of them come and join us every Thanksgiving for a meal. I have grown very attached to them. And over the years, I was forced to confront the fact that people who oppose equal rights for gays in the marriage sphere are basically acting out of concern for their own identity, not out of respect for anyone else. You are the agents of change. I got this award tonight, because I was the object of your affection - or not, as the case may be. My daughter led me to support the marriage equality law in New York when we were debating it, and to oppose North Carolina's denial of marriage equality, and to do all these other things. So I want to thank her too. Thank you, GLAAD. Thank you, Chelsea."

AH-MAY-ZING!

We hope that the rest of the evening was filled with just as many laughs, good times, and a shared passion for progress!

Congratulations to all the winners, which are listed for your viewing pleasure, along with both Jennifer and President Clinton's speeches…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Bill Clinton To Recieve GLAAD Honor! Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Charlize Theron To Present!

bill clinton glaad award

Is Bill Clinton an angel in disguise??!

Probably not, but he is our hero!!!

The former president will be honored with GLAAD's first ever Advocate for Change Award.

Good ole' Bill was chosen for the prestigious award because of his past and present advocacy for equal rights.

Let's just say he has gone above and BEYOND the call of duty for the LGBT community.

Not only was he the FIRST U.S. president to appoint ANY openly gay and lesbian people to government positions, but he appointed more than 150 of us!!!

Not to mention how he lobbied for marriage equality in New York and North Carolina, and that time he publicly call out the head honchos in the Supreme Court to abandon the Defense of Marriage Act.
