And, she said, oh, I’m going to bring the kids and I said, ah, you know Deb, it’s fine. When I was there this morning. I was so glad they were there because it kind of hits you. As a kid from the northern suburbs of Sydney. Here you are outside where they Oscars are. It’s one of those moments to remember.”

The day before, the 27-year-old actress was spotted arriving at LAX Airport in Los Angeles.

Amanda celebrated her birthday earlier this month and she is celebrating the occasion by raising money for charity:water!

“On December 3, I’m turning 27. And this year, I don’t want presents or drinks. I want clean water,” Amanda wrote on her fundraising page. “Women and children in Rwanda walk for hours every day, up and down mountains, just to collect water from rivers. And the worst part? The water they collect can make them really sick. We can actually do something about it. Just $65 can give someone in Rwanda clean water.”

Help Amanda reach her goal of $27,000 at MyCharityWater.org!
