In his speech, the 53-year-old thanked his film fraternity for keeping “small films alive” and also referred to last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

“Today was an extraordinary day, there were millions of people who marched not just in Paris but around the world, and they were Christians and Jews and Muslims, they were leaders of countries all over the world and they didn’t march in protest,” he said.

“They marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. So Je suis Charlie.”
