Holly to Bolly: Celebs out in force for women’s anti-Trump marches, Ginger gives birth to new baby Spice and more
If you wondered where Hollywood’s A-list celebrities had gone during President Donald Trump’s inauguration, you didn’t have to wonder any longer on Saturday, when scores of them showed up at huge women’s marches in Washington and other cities to send the new president a pointed message that he was in for a fight - and that, as so many signs said, women’s rights are human rights.
Madonna, Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson, Cher, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Emma Watson, Amy Schumer, Jake Gyllenhaal and feminist leader Gloria Steinem were just some of those at the march in Washington, where officials said the crowd could number more than half a million.
In New York, Helen Mirren, Cynthia Nixon and Whoopi Goldberg joined a crowd of protesters marching to Trump’s home at Trump Tower. In Park City, Utah, where the Sundance Film Festival was underway, TV host Chelsea Handler was joined by Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart and more. In Los Angeles, Miley Cyrus, Jamie Lee Curtis, Demi Lovato and Jane Fonda were among tens of thousands protesting.

James Marsden is reportedly being eyed by DC Comics to star in Green Lantern Corps. An insider said that Marsden is included in the shortlist of actors being considered to play Hal Jordan, one out of two Green Lanterns, in the upcoming movie, reports aceshowbiz.com “I’ve heard one more name, too,” the insider said about Marsden’s potential casting. “Ever since ‘Westworld’, Marsden has been pretty hot around here. They’ve discussed him for Hal as well,” the insider added. Previously, there were reports about possible shortlist of actors who may play Hal Jordan.
