Despite the long haul flight, Richard didn’t sport a hint of fatigue as he landed in Los Angeles.

Richard looked in high spirits as he carted along his suitcases, one which boasted a graphic European print, etched with designs of Paris’ Eiffel Towel and London’s red phone box.

He was joined by his daughter Olivia, who nailed airport chic in a camel-coloured coat and jeans.

With her hair swept into a casual bun, she happily followed her dad Richard as they headed to their hotel.

He was seen grinning ear to ear as he posed with the likes of Laura Dern, Olivia Colman and Regina King.

This comes after Richard took to his Twitter and Instagram to share a sweet snap with his daughter Olivia on the plane to America on Thursday.

While Richard looked dapper in another image which he shared on his Instagram stories, and saw him beam as he contemplated heading to LA for the ceremony.

And the actor also gushed about the possibility of meeting singer Barbara Streisand at the event, as he shared the news that she would be one of the hosts.

In January, the actor also took a selfie outside the singer’s home and shared a fan letter he sent when he was 14, which then prompted the singer to respond to him and gush about his new film.

Richard recently recalled his most bizarre awards show experience in an interview with Variety, saying that  it was unreal ‘going to the Governors Ball and while speaking to Emily Blunt for the first time in my life, being interrupted from behind by Tom Hanks saying, “You’re perfect in your movie, you’re wonderful, you should win everything.” 

‘That takes you by surprise. Standing directly next to Tom Hanks was Steven Spielberg. Then someone tapped me on the shoulder and said, “Do you want to meet Lady Gaga?” That was completely unbelievable.’

Going on to talk about his preparation for the Oscars, Richard revealed he hasn’t prepared a speech because he thinks that it’s a ‘foolish’ thing to do.

The Star Wars: Episode IX actor said: ‘Most certainly not. That would be foolish. The man that has to have the speech planned is the man who has had to come up with four different speeches for the four different awards that he’s already won.’

Can You Ever Forgive Me? sees Melissa step into the stilettos of celebrity biographer Lee Israel who makes her living profiling A-listers in the dramatic thriller film.

The writer chronicles the lives of stars including Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.

Yet in a shocking twist, Lee turns her art form into deception when she falls on hard times and her work is no longer able to get published.
