The 62-year-old actress and director smiled for cameras as she hit the red carpet for the prestigious event in Los Angeles on Sunday in a strapless black sequinned Saint Laurent gown, donning her signature short blonde bob and a simple makeup look.

She is set to make her return to the big screen alongside Duchovny in upcoming rom-com What Happens Later, which she has also directed and co-written.
Opening up on her decision to step back, Ryan said: “I took a giant break because I felt like there’s just so many other parts of my experience as a human being I wanted to develop.
“It’s nice to think of it as a job and not a lifestyle. And that is a great way of navigating it for me,” she added to People.Ryan shares actor son Jack Quaid with ex-husband Dennis Quaid.
