Smart and the Pretty Woman star, along with her husband Danny Moder, were feted by fellow eco activists, including actors Peter Fonda and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, at Heal the Bay's annual Bring Back the Beach gala on Friday (18May12).
Together the crowd raised funds to help promote awareness about protecting the marine animals of Santa Monica Bay home, and The Butterfly Effect beauty Smart was thrilled to be recognised for her years of hard work.
She tells local publication Los Angeles Confidential, "I'm extremely grateful and honoured. I highly respect and love Heal the Bay; their work is so effective, far-reaching, and impactful on the ocean. Growing up in Topanga Canyon (in California), being in the mountains and surrounded by nature inspired me.
"My parents always loved nature, and that inspired my brother and me. Growing up I was always aware of the environment (through) beach clean-ups, hikes, and bike rides in the canyon. Right out of high school I wanted to get involved and saw Heal the Bay posters around. That was my first venture into environmental work when I was 18."
