She had her wavy blonde locks down on the fall evening at the TCL Chinese Theatre and wore a light layer of makeup at the cinematic event.

The two-time Academy Award nominee spoke earlier this month in a roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter along with her Marriage Story co-star Scarlett Johansson, as well as Awkwafina, Lupita Nyong'o, Jennifer Lopez and Renée Zellweger.

In it, she opened up about working on Marriage Story, which is directed by Noah Baumbach; as well as Little Women, which is directed by his partner, Greta Gerwig.

'I think they're both exacting about the words because they really, I think as a playwright would, they really hear a rhythm to the language,' she said of the creative couple.

She of Baumbach: 'With Noah, it has its own specific nature and one thing that I was so inspired by, and I think we found in rehearsals, even when we weren't in the scenes with the people at hand, when it's Adam [Driver] with his attorney or Scarlett [Johansson] and I together, he feels there is a real musicality to the film.

'I think he hears a rhythm, Noah, that he's waiting for everyone to resonate with in a really beautiful way.'

She praised Gerwig for her 'very strategic' method of composing dialogue for Little Women, an adaptation of the 1868 Louisa May Alcott novel Little Women.

'She heard the language in a way that I think is very similar to how she and Noah have worked and collaborated,' Dern said, adding that 'there is a rhythm to the language that she brings that is seemingly messy and joyful and complicated and angry and all of those things, but it's very strategic.'

Marriage Story was released in selected theaters earlier this month and is slated to begin streaming on Netflix December 6.
