The 69-year-old actress held up a “Je Suis Charlie” sign in support of the satirical magazine, which was horrifically attacked last week leaving a number of journalists dead, as she walked the red carpet at the event in Los Angeles last night.

Amal attached a “Je Suis Charlie” pin to her clutch bag and revealed the accessory was a tribute to the people of France in the wake of the atrocity.  She told Elle magazine: ”[It is] customized in solidarity with the French people who’ve gone through a terrible week.” George also paid tribute to the cause by wearing a “Je Suis Charlie” badge – French for ‘I Am Charlie’ – on the red carpet and paid tribute to the 3.7 million people who took to the streets in France for a public show of solidarity against the Paris attacks.

Several other stars also showed their support including Joshua Jackson, Diane Kruger and Kathy Bates, who all held up a “Je Suis Charlie” sign on the red carpet, while William H. Macy told Variety: ”I am Charlie.”

Inside the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma was given a standing ovation by the star-studded audience as he insisted Hollywood will stand united. He said: ”We understand the importance of free expression as not only an integral part of the American fabric, but a beacon that is reflected across the globe. Together we will stand united against anyone who would repress free speech anywhere from North Korea to Paris.”
