<i>Variety</i> honors Women in Showbiz

Behind every great woman is a great kid, agreed Hollywood’s female power players Arianna Huffington, Nina Jacobson, Kasi Lemmons, Paula Wagner and Laura Ziskin at Variety’s Women in Showbiz event Nov. 14.

During the luncheon at Social Hollywood, the honorees swapped stories on how their kids have come to the rescue on more than one occasion.

Ziskin said her nightly chats with her daughter have salvaged her sanity by providing some perspective in a time of crisis. “One day, when my daughter was three, I had a miserable day: I had a movie falling apart,” Ziskin recalled. “My daughter asked me, ‘Mommy, how was your day?’ I sat down and told her everything. They don’t want to make my movie, and I’ll never have a career. And she looked at me and said, ‘I had a really bad day too: I didn’t like my apple.’ ”
