But not from actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who were at the ceremony. Mila explained why in an interview with C magazine.

"The idea of leading by example only makes sense when you actually have someone to lead," Mila said.

"We have our tiny little tribe here at home, and never once do I want to tell them to do something if I'm not willing to do it myself," she continued.

"Not standing up, to me, was a no-brainer, but what was shocking to me was how many people did stand up," she added.
