13 Celebrities Explain Why They Wore Black on the Golden Globes Red Carpet


Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

“All the women here and all across the country wearing black, we are standing in solidarity, saying enough is enough. Time is up on sexual harassment, and assault, and abuse, and imbalance of power. We are here standing especially for our sisters and brothers of color, the LGBTQX community, people with disabilities, those groups that are underrepresented and often don’t have the resources to be able to stand up. This group has started the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which has raised more than $15 million, and I’m proud to be here in this sea of black.”

Claire Foy, The Crown

“For me, there was absolutely no question I would wear black. I think it’s a beautiful show of solidarity, a beautiful statement, and a very, very simple way of taking out what is normally so present here, which is that what you look like is more important than what you have to say and who you are. And [as for the] tuxedo—I just want to be equal. So I am this evening, which is an amazing feeling.”

O–T Fagbenle, The Handmaid’s Tale

“Fundamentally, we have to find ways as institutions to protect people, and in particular protect women from sexual aggression. Anything I can do to join the cause of bringing consciousness around it, I’m really glad to do, and I was really honored to be allowed to get one of these badges so I could represent.”

Chris Sullivan, This Is Us

“Time is up on the culture of violence and sexual harassment, not only in this industry, but in all industries. If there are women in my life who I respect and who I love, who tell me that there is a way that I can make them feel safer, or make them feel more empowered or more respected, and that all I have to do is wear all black to help support this conversation, that’s an easy choice.”

Yvonne Strahovski, The Handmaid’s Tale

“There was not a lot of thinking involved in deciding to do it. It was a no brainer, 100 per cent. I was so excited when I heard about what these women had put together with the Time’s Up movement. I couldn’t be more excited and proud to have this be my first Globes, with this movement. It feels exciting even though it has been a horrendous journey, and will continue to be a horrible journey for a lot of people, but it’s so important that there’s light being shed on this issue.”

Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies

“It’s been a difficult year for our industry. A lot of things have come out of the darkness and into the light, and I think there was a collective feeling that it wouldn’t be business as usual, because we have to be forever changed in this moment. We’re more united as an industry than we have ever been, men and women, determined to change our own industry, but also shine a light on other industries, because we get a lot of attention, and we’re very privileged to be here. We get to tell stories, and there are a lot of people in other industries who don’t get this opportunity to speak out, so hopefully this is a small gesture that will continue to resonate.”

Alison Brie, GLOW

“The way this has been organized by women in my industry to support women and people of all industries is really exciting. This is a moment not just to get this discussion going, but also to take action. People can go to timesupnow.com and donate to the legal defense fund, which will provide legal aid to victims who can’t afford representation. It’s very important to me that we’re not only talking about it. We’re taking action. I am also wearing this exquisite Bulgari black snake bracelet, which is actually a watch, and it’s my very literal nod to time being up.”

Samira Wiley, The Handmaid’s Tale

“It feels so good to be able to do something that is actionable. Even if it’s just saying, ‘I’m going to wear this color today on this day,’ that says, ‘I stand with you, I believe you,’ which is something I feel like these women don’t hear a lot. By wearing this, I’m saying, ‘I believe you and I’m here with you.”

Katherine Langford, 13 Reasons Why

“When I was nominated, I had several actresses reach out to me and let me know about the movement, and Time’s Up, which is supporting equality across the workplace for all men, all women, and all non-binary people across every industry. It was something that definitely spoke to me on a very integral level. So my choice to wear black tonight was a very easy decision.”

Susan Kelechi Watson, This Is Us

“I heard that we were standing in solidarity with one another against harassment, against abuse. The time is up for that type of behavior to be taking place in our workplace or any place. To me, it was a pleasure to stand in solidarity with those who have the courage to speak up.”

Milo Ventomiglia, This Is Us

“There was no back and forth so much as there was a profound yes, absolutely. I’m a feminist, I believe in equality. I have two amazing older sisters and an amazing mother, and a father supported them and all of us. So to be able to stand up and speak up for the injustices that have been going on for far too long and hopefully try to represent a better way of being a man in this world and leading with kindness and understanding and support—I’m happy to do it. If I need to dress in black 365 days a year for the rest of my life, I’ll do it.”

Gwendoline Christie, Game of Thrones

“It’s hugely important because I think this is a global issue, and I’m so thrilled that this industry has decided to take this opportunity to cause a movement for something of significance. I truly hope that this is a turning point and of course I wear black, to stand in solidarity with all of those women that have come out as victims of sexual assault, prejudice, violence, harassment. I truly hope and believe this can be the start of change.”

Caitriona Balfe, Outlander

“I was very on board with wearing black. I think that it’s an incredible movement that the women behind Time’s Up have started. We are in a great moment of change, and it was important to stand in solidarity with my fellow actresses and women across many industries who are saying time’s up on the abuse of power.”
