Amy Poehler posed with Saru Jayaraman, workplace justice advocate for restaurant workers. If that movie sounds familiar, it's probably because you read about director Ridley Scott replacing supporting cast member Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer after Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of sexually propositioning him when he was 14 years old (Spacey was 26).

In their joint red carpet interview, King spoke before Stone.

"Every day should be a platform for conversations that are helpful for the human race to be better", she said.

It's an nearly certainty that all of these women will be wearing black, an initiative organised by the Time's Up campaign to stand in solidarity with those who experience sexual harassment, assault or abuse across all industries.
