It was all black everything for celebrities at Sunday’s 2018 Golden Globes, in protest of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and in support of Time’s Up. Attendees from Emma Watson to nominee William H. Macy shared with Yahoo what inspired their decisions to go dark.
But it wasn’t just the show-goers at the high-profile awards event wearing the color and sharing their #WhyWeWearBlack stories. Stars who watched the Globes being handed out from home, at viewing parties, or even from their sickbeds (get well soon, Anne Hathaway and Amy Schumer!) showed solidarity for the mission by posting photos of their black on social media — and saying why they wore it.
“This year marked the 25th anniversary of my rape,” wrote the Being Mary Jane actress, who covered up in a hoodie. “#MeToo. I know I am not alone. Together we can eradicate sexual violence, harassment and abuse. Together we can have true equality. Together we can dismantle white supremacy and racism. Together we can center the voices of the most marginalized among us. Together we can acknowledge the jig is up and its BEEN time for monumental sweeping change. #TimesUpNow.” (Photo: Gabrielle Union via Instagram)
While wrapped in black, the Shake It Up alum revealed that she “was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14.” As that point, “I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again. Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did. But some of us aren’t as lucky to get out alive. Please today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup.” (Photo: Bella Thorne via Instagram)
Julianne Moore and Liv Freundlich
The Wonderstruck actress explained why she and her 15-year-old daughter, Liv, were wearing black. “For equality for all across ALL industries,” she wrote. “For safety among every worker in every occupation. For inclusion of all women and marginalized people. #TIMESUP Support and donate to the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund. Thank u sisters.” (Photo: Julianne Moore via Instagram)

“TIMESUP!” wrote the actress alongside her husband, Kyle Newman. “We are missing a VERY important Golden Globes tonight to take care of our son. All of the endless years of physical, emotional, financial, sexual abuse brought upon so many. As many of you know I have been open with my experiences. We are with everyone across the world, our peers, artists and those in any and all positions. With those that feel they have no position. Today and everyday we stand in solidarity. ALWAYS.” (Photo: Jaime King via Instagram)
