George Clooney is using the Golden Globes as a platform to speak out against the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris that have taken the lives of a dozen people.
George, who is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award during Sunday’s telecast, and his wife Amal Clooney stopped by ET on the Globes red carpet to discuss the special lapel pins they’re wearing to honor the victims of the attacks.
“We weren’t in Europe or France, but this was a moment in time when millions of people from every different religion locked arms and said we’re not going to be ruled in fear,” George told ET’s Nancy O’Dell. “We both wanted to be in solidarity with it.”
George and Amal also talked about life as a married couple. “Well gee, I don’t know!” joked George, who was the ultimate gentleman helping his wife’s train on the ET stairs, when Nancy asked how life is different now that they’re newlyweds. “We’re very happy.” Added Amal, making her Golden Globe debut: “It’s wonderful.”
As for whether a mini Clooney was in the cards in the near future, George felt the heat: “Well aren’t you nice,” he joked to Nancy, with Amal exclaiming, “You’re worse than my mother!”
But what about the best perk about being married? George deadpanned, “Being able to say to my wife, ‘We gotta go!’”
Twelve people – ten journalists and two police officers – died on Jan. 7 after masked gunmen opened fire at the headquarters of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, sparking outcry and questions over free speech.
George, in a Giorgio Armani tux, and Amal, in a black Dior gown and Harry Winston jewelry, weren’t the only ones shining a spotlight on the attacks. Other Golden Globe nominees took a moment to pay their respects, including Helen Mirren, who held up a Je Suis Charlie sign.
Meryl Streep, nominated for Into the Woods, told reporters at the London premiere that the attacks were “terrible.” “Overwhelmingly sad,” the awards season vet said. “But the antidote for that is to live joyously, tolerantly and with attention.”
“Obviously this is terrible and tragic and upsetting. It makes you remember how important free speech is and must be defended,” Golden Globes co-host Tina Fey told reporters earlier this week at the Television Critics Association press tour. “We all must stand firm on issue of free speech.”
“We are Americans,” Tina said. “Even if it’s just dumb jokes in The Interview, we have the right to make them.”
