(AP) Amy Poehler and Charlize Theron were moved to tears Friday, and it wasn't for a role.


The actresses got emotional while being recognized for their philanthropic efforts at Variety's Power of Women luncheon. Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Banks, Jennifer Hudson and Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal were also honored at the fifth annual event, held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.


Poehler cried while discussing Worldwide Orphans' outreach to needy children. "They have nothing," she said.


Theron shed tears while thanking her mother for "teaching me through your actions to be a strong and powerful woman."


Hudson almost cried while being recognized for creating the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, but left the stage before any tears fell.
