Several celebs have expressed their anger over the lack of diversity as part of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Coincidentally, a lot of them have been some of Hollywood’s most attractive stars — and we rounded up 16 of them here! Click through the gallery!
If you don’t see one of your favorite celeb hotties at this year’s Oscars on Feb. 28, they may just be hanging out with some more of Hollywood’s best-looking at a protest party. Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, and George Clooney are just a few of the sexy celebs that have weighed in on the #OscarsSoWhite discussion, and some have threatened to not even show up to this year’s ceremony because of the lack of diversity amongst the nominees. See 16 of the hottest Oscar protestors here!
Will and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith — one of the best-looking couples in Hollywood — have both been extremely vocal of their feelings about the all-White Oscar nominees. While most of their fellow actors and actresses who have spoken out on the issue are still planning on attending, though, Will declared that the Smiths won’t be in attendance. In fact, both he and Jada have said that if they were to attend, they would be contributing to the problem!
Although Will and Jada might not be joined by their comrades in actually boycotting this year’s ceremony, there are plenty of hot stars that fully support their decision. In fact, Mark Ruffalo was ready to not go, even though his film Spotlight is up for Best Picture! And when the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o expressed her disappointment, it was questionable whether she’d show up too.
Also disappointed in the diversity-less nominations was Reese, who happens to be an Academy member. Matt Damon called the diversity issue “shameful and embarrassing” — and he’s even nominated for the Best Actor honor this year! John Krasinski is another hottie that’s right there with Matt in thinking that it’s a shame, and the sexy Tyrese Gibson begged this year’s host Chris Rock to step down because of it!
Amongst other gorgeous celebs who voiced their protests of the Academy’s failed diversity in the nominations for both this year and last year are Mr. Clooney, Viola Davis, David Oyelowo, Daniel Radcliffe, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Idris Elba. Wow, that’s sure a lot of attractive people bonding together!
