"We're proud to honour our dad's legacy as we join the incredible roster of previous Golden Globe Ambassadors, many of whom have gone on to pursue their own dreams in the entertainment industry. "The biggest lesson our dad taught us is to ‘be kind,' which was an essential factor in Paris and my decision to study filmmaking and our desire to tell important stories. Having this opportunity to turn the spotlight outward on kids experiencing hunger is a true privilege," said Dylan.
Other recent Golden Globe Ambassadors include Dwayne Johnson‘s daughter Simone Garcia Johnson, Jamie Foxx‘s daughter Corinne Foxx, and Kelsey Grammer‘s daughter Greer Grammer. The 2019 Golden Globe nominations will be announced on December 9, 2019, and the ceremony will take place January 5, 2020.
