"I had a banana and then a sandwich," the TRON: Legacy star told UsMagazine.com of her pre-show meal. "We don't get to eat, you know? We don't get to eat until tonight."

"You pick the random breadsticks in the middle of the table and then hope you're not called on stage to present when you have a breadstick in your mouth," she joked with reporters backstage.

So how did the actress -- who tied the knot in 2003 with filmmaker Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince -- choose her outfit for the star-studded fete?

"I love the dress for so many reasons," she told Us. "I'm actually really comfortable. I like the way its kind of swept together. It's like a little cocoon."
