Male actors including The Rock, Armie Hammer and Tom Hiddleston will be wearing black on the Golden Globes red carpet next month, in solidarity with their female colleagues. The silent protest is a way of standing up to sexual harassment in Hollywood, which has been exposed in the #MeToo campaign following the explosive accusations against Harvey Weinstein in October.

The news was confirmed by celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati, who works with the likes of Johnson, Hammer and Hiddleston, when she wrote on Instagram: ‘Because everyone keeps asking me... YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year’s Golden Globes. At least ALL MY GUYS will be. Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here... just sayin...’. The Rock confirmed the news, commenting on the post, ‘Yes we will’.

It comes after Weinstein-accuser Rose McGowan took to Twitter to criticise the movement, and in particular Meryl Streep, writing that: ‘Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.’ She has since apologised for and deleted her Tweet, saying that: 'There is no map for this road I’m on, I will f**k up. Peace be with you.'
