Katherine Langford Speaks About Why The Times Up Movement Is So Important to Her

Katherine Langford is clearing up her comments about the Times Up movement.

While the Love, Simon actress wasn’t under a ton of fire for what she said about meeting Brie Larson while meeting her during the Times Up planning, she did want to clear up any confusion to her own fans.

Speaking with Glamour, Katherine emphasized that the movement was deeply important to her.

“It may have been misconstrued as me being overly emotional or starstruck because of the fame factor,” she says.

“Being a woman who is just starting out in my career, it’s so inspiring to see these other actresses who are so decorated and talented talking and putting their names out for the world to create change.”

Katherine adds, “I think this was the reason I was so emotional—because they are speaking up and because of what they are doing, it means that I will never have to go through things they went through. It’s a mix of respect and admiration and thanks and appreciation.”

She also is feeling even more inspired by them every day because of her experience.

“It also makes me more inspired and empowered to pass that line of thought and action down. These women are holding the door open for me, so that I can continue to hold the door open and continue discussions. [I want] people coming after me to benefit from what I’ve been through and the work that’s been done.”
