Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence and Harvey Weinstein honoured Bill Clinton at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

At the ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the Silver Linings Playbook Oscar winner was joined by the famed film producer as they introduced the former US president for his Advocate For Change Award.

Drew Barrymore was hosting the yearly event, which recognises the achievements of various branches of the media who represent the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and issues important to them.

Jennifer slipped up when saying the former commander in chief's name, although the honouree was in good spirits.

He 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."

Elsewhere at the star-studded bash, the Stephen F. Kolzak Award was presented to Steve Warren by Leonardo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower was given the prize for Outstanding Film - Wide Release.
