When award shows come along, the burning questions on many people's minds are, what elaborate outfits will the celebs be wearing, what designer will they be representing and who will wear it best?

Outfits aside, celebs are oftem up to something much more surprising and kind-hearted - taking friends, family and even pets to the biggest events in showbiz.

Here are 6 celebs and their extra-special red carpet companions.

Woody even tried to bounce in for some selfies whilst Tom greeted his adoring fans.

2. Miley Cyrus took Jesse, a 22-year-old homeless boy, to the VMA's 2014

When Miley won Video of the Year for Wrecking Ball it wasn't Miley accepting the award, but Jesse on her behalf... and it melted our hearts.

Jesse came on stage representing 'My Friend's Place', a shelter in Los Angeles.

“I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost, and scared for their lives. I know this because I'm one of these people. Though I may have been invisible to you in the streets, I have the same dreams as many of you.”

The speech had Miley tearing up.

After the show Miley treated her buddy to some fun at In-N-Out burger and raised awareness for the charity through her Facebook page.

3. Jennifer Lawrence took her close school friend along to the 'Independent Spirit Awards' back in 2013

Her buddy Andy Strunk has Down Syndrome and the two friends have been close for over ten years. At the event, Andy told reporters that it was:

The best night of my life. We are like best friends.. She's kind... I think she has spirit.

J-Law shared with radio station Wave 3 just how awesome Andy is.

He has the kindest heart of anybody I’ve ever met. He’s always in a good mood. And he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever been around.''

6. Zach Galifianakis took his 87-year-old neighbor along to the Hangover 3 premiere in 2013

He has since taken his sweet friend along to various parties including this very special event. Mimi even had her makeup done especially for her red carpet debut.

Mimi looked so lovely and comfortable walking along the carpet.
