"To be honest with you it has been such an extraordinary year for women I’d feel like I was letting my side down if I didn’t go," Kate expressed. "And also I feel very strongly that it may possibly be Leo [Dicaprio]'s year, and he is my closest friend in the world and I just couldn’t imagine not being there to support him. And I think those are reasons enough really to show my face."
