Stars including George Clooney, Helen Mirren, Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson sported accessories in support of the victims of last week's attacks in Paris, declaring "Je suis Charlie" in solidarity.

"It's a great reminder for all of us to stand by each other for the ideal of free speech," Mirren told TODAY's Natalie Morales. "It’s very difficult to maintain that ideal but it’s a great one to aim towards."

In addition to holding up a "Je suis Charlie" sign, Mirren also sported a symbolic paintbrush pin on her gown.
