Earlier this week she received the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala in California.  

Speaking about the decision of several actresses wearing black at the Golden Globes, she told press at the Palm Springs Festival that she is in "solidarity with those who have been sexually harassed" and "will wear black".

She added, "I'm bringing one of my best friends with me and she'll be wearing black also."
