Palm Springs honors Howard, Penn

Young meets old at festival gala

Young thesps Dakota Fanning, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams and Freida Pinto seemed like the rare rookies among on the rest of the honorees at Tuesday’s 20th Palm Springs Intl. Film Festival gala.

“I’ve never done this before, so I don’t know how,” said a breathless Pinto, clearly basking in her honor for “Slumdog Millionaire.”

Midway, the ceremony turned away from the youngsters and toward the “old folks.”

“I think my hair is starting to thin,” mused Ron Howard accepting his lifetime achievement award. The 54-year-old said he was grateful to celebrate his 50th year in the business with “Frost/Nixon.” “I think I have a few more movies in me.”

Introducing the career achievement honoree Ben Stiller joked, “Dustin Hoffman is 92 years old.” Taking the stage, Hoffman retorted, “Looking around this room, I don’t know what the median age is here, but it ain’t MTV.” After getting the longest standing ovation, Clint Eastwood continued to quip for the senior crowd, “I’d like to thank my wife and daughter, but I’ve forgotten their names.”
