The 67-year-old actor says he thinks 'the world may be a better place is women were to run it for a little while.'
According to William H. Macy, "It's a good time to be a girl."
The 67-year-old actor has been an outstanding supporter of women throughout his decades in Hollywood, and Sunday night's Golden Globes were no different. ET's Nancy O'Dell caught up with the Shameless star, who is nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, on the red carpet, where he opened up about the Time's Up movement making changes in the entertainment industry, and how he and his wife, Felicity Huffman, have been involved.
"Felicity is very involved with Time's Up, and I have two daughters. This is a good thing," Macy insisted of Sunday's red carpet blackout in solidarity of victims of sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace. "Young folks are charged up politically, like they were when I was a kid. I'm an old hippie, and [my daughters and I] talk about nothing else."
"They want action now. They are sort of militant about it. I find myself playing devil's advocate a bit, but they're dedicated and they're in it for the long haul," he continued. "I think big changes are coming."
Macy's daughters are getting a front-row seat to that change, as he revealed that Huffman hosted a "huge" Time's Up meeting at their house two nights ago.
"It was a who's who of Hollywood!" exclaimed Macy, who was representing the initiative with a Time's Up pin on the red carpet. "I couldn't believe it."
"[Huffman has] gone to several meetings, yeah. There's a lot of talk. It's all talking stages, it seems to me right now, but this is a start," he said. "I love women, and if I'm going to be honest, I think the world may be a better place if women were to run it for a little while."
