'Je Suis Charlie' At Golden Globes: Clooneys And Other Stars Show Support On Red Carpet

It's not unusual for the worlds of politics and Hollywood to collide, especially on the red carpet.

Two high-profile celebrity couples — Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger, and George and Amal Clooney — both showed their support for the 'Je Suis Charlie' unity movement at the Golden Globes, to honour the 17 people killed in Paris over three days this week.

Their sign of solidarity comes on the same day that millions of people came together on the streets of Paris to demonstrate on behalf of free speech, following targeted attacks on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

While Jackson and Kruger opted to pose with a printed-out sign with the message, the Clooneys each sported a button for the cause.

And they weren't alone.

Helen Mirren, nominated for her role in "The Hundred-Foot Journey," told NBC News she was wearing a pen as a pin to accessorize her look for a purpose.

"I think it's a great reminder for all of us to stand by the ideal of free speech," said Mirren.

The pen has become a symbol of strength for those looking to show their support for the newspaper's journalists.
