Speaking about his experience, Ali said, “it was surreal. We were all on the same tables , dining at the award show. I mean , fact is, Britney has been an icon during the largest part of my childhood. She was up there breaking records with her hit singles . I bet all my friends know lyrics to atleast two of her songs. Like it or not. Its like the era of backstreet boys and nsync. She was receiving the fragrance beauty award for her latest perfume line and so i guess i went to get a whiff of that and congratulate her . Samuel L Jackson and i share the same team, and so this meeting was pending for a while. What can i say, am just a huge fan. And he loved my performance from my film vic and abdul. So that was one of the best compliments i have received in my life. Somethings are just best experienced i guess. I told him i hope i meet him on a set next time. Working together. So i’ll leave it at that for now.”
Ali presented the 2018 new beauty awards to two new comers, namely Kirstin Maldonado and Olivia Holt. And the finale, award for Timeless beauty to Jane seymour, aka Bond girl.
