Other gun control celebrities attending the Golden Globes included Eva Longoria, Jason Schwartzmann, director Tom McCarthy, and writer Josh Singer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Singer took time on the red carpet to praise Obama for signing the executive gun control, then immediately lamented that the controls do not go far enough.
