Turns out Jennifer Lawrence, who was noticeably absent from Golden Globes festivities last night, almost went to the after parties. But halfway through glam, Lawrence decided to bail because of her friend/plus one. The actress explained in a Facebook video she just posted from Golden Globes night:
“Well, you had told me you wanted me to be your date to the after parties so I, you know, got us tickets to some after parties, booked a car, and I was halfway through glam when you told me you didn’t wanna go,” J.Law declared to the friend who was filming her. “You just wanted to come over to my house so I sent my hair and makeup team home and now this is what I look like.”
Ditching going-out plans at the last minute for a night in? Been there.
This comes as Anne Hathaway, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lopez were all notably absent from the Golden Globe ceremony and after parties, too, but took to Instagram to explain why, and to share their support for the Time’s Up movement.
Hathaway captioned a mirror selfie wearing a black maxi dress with, “In Solidarity from my sick bed. #TIMESUP #WHYWEWEARBLACK #GoldenGlobes”.
Schumer shared a similar photo in an all black outfit alongside comedian Rachel Feinstein, captioned: “Home sick but proud as hell to wear black in solidarity with my sisters. @rachelfeinstein #timesup #whywewearblack [sic]”.

Jennifer showed her support for Time’s Up with an emotional speech from Puerto Rico, where she is helping to provide relief in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
“We are humbled and proud to be part of this effort”, she says in a video shared on her Instagram. “Today is the Golden Globes in Los Angeles. A lot of the women with hashtag Time’s Up are standing up for equality to be treated equally and for sexual harassment.
“I stand here today in black doing the same from far away. And it’s the same thing here in Puerto Rico. We want to be treated equally.”
