"This is changing the way that we live," the actress tells TooFab.
Actress Abbie Cornish predicts that the #MeToo movement will have effects that far outlive the brave women and men who have recently broken their silence on sexual harassment and misconduct in the work place.
TooFab caught up with the "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" star in Los Angeles Friday night at the 7th AACTA International Awards, where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the dark comedy, which is also nominated for six Golden Globes.
"I think we're gonna look back in 10 years time, in 20 years time, and tell our friends and family, our children, about this," she said. "And it's gonna be a piece of history that will be taught in schools. This is a movement. This is changing the way that we live, the way that we communicate with each other, the way that we treat each other. It's so important."
Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood will be wearing all black for this Sunday's Golden Globes in protest of the sexual harassment running rampant in the entertainment industry, and Cornish -- who wore black Friday night -- told TooFab she thinks it's "a beautiful way to show our support to the movement that's happening in our community."
"When I say community, I mean as a whole," she explained. "I love that people -- and I'm gonna say people because I do think it's males and females -- are standing together to really make a change in the world."
"Big Little Lies" star Nicole Kidman was also at the AACTA International Awards and told TooFab she would be among those wearing black at the Globes.
The Golden Globes will broadcast live on Sunday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
