A prominent Hollywood actor confirmed that the protest planned for the upcoming Golden Globe Awards will include men. EW.com reports that Dwayne Johnson confirmed that at least some of the men attending the Jan. 7 ceremony will wear black in solidarity with their female counterparts.
The confirmation by the Rock comes after celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinanti — who styles actors including Tom Hiddleston, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund, along with Johnson — announced on social media back on Dec. 21: “YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year’s Golden Globes. At least ALL MY GUYS will be. Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here… just sayin…”
It was widely reported earlier this month that many of the actresses attending the Golden Globes would dress in black as a protest against decades of sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood.
