Many of the stars that walked the red carpet at tonight's 2015 Golden Globe Awards were armed with a powerful message: Je Suis Charlie.

Celebrities wearing buttons and holding signs emblazoned with the French phrase that translates to "I am Charlie"—the slogan and hashtag used in support of Charlie Hebdo following a terror attack on the publication's office that took place in Paris, France, earlier this week—made multiple appearances before the award show kicked off.

George and Amal Clooney (pictured above), Helen Mirren, Joshua Jackson, Diane Kruger, and Kathy Bates were among the celebrities who showed their support for the movement on the red carpet. Later, Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma paid tribute during the ceremony, while Jared Leto also took a moment to acknowledge the event onstage before presenting an award. "To our brothers, sisters, friends, and families in France, our thoughts, our prayers, our hearts are with you tonight," Leto said. "On vous aime. Je suis Charlie."

The stars join millions around the globe who have rallied to show their support of unity and to proclaim the importance of free speech after the tragic event took place on Jan. 7.
