Hollywood celebs — like almost everyone else on Twitter on Thursday morning — are watching and weighing in on the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — and their responses appear to be in support of Ford.

Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her and covered her mouth to prevent her from screaming at a Maryland high school party in the early 1980s.

“It was hard for me to breath,” Ford told the panel, “and I thought Brett was accidentally going to kill me.”

The gripping testimony brought Ford a wave of support from several celebrities. “Dr. Ford is telling the truth. It could not be more clear,” Billy Eichner tweeted.

Ellen DeGeneres said she was “in awe” of Ford’s bravery.

Mira Sorvino — who is one of the many women to accuse disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct — said she found Ford to be “extremely credible and sympathetic,” and added that “her responses echo many of the feelings and reactions I have had over the years connected to my own sexual violence trauma.”

Actor and former political appointed Kal Penn said that he heard two people talking about the hearing.

“Star Trek” alum George Takei said that Dr. Ford is “courageous and credible.”

Indie rocker Ted Leo tweeted Ford is a “hero.”

Kathy Griffin has tweeted several times about the hearing, including sending a simple “thank you” tweet.

Sally Field praised Dr. Ford as well.
