BEVERLY HILLS ( — Singer Josh Groban and actress Lisa Kudrow were among the celebrities Thursday night reacting to the hack attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Sony officials have said they have no plans to release “The Interview” in the wake of a rambling threat that stated that theaters planning to show the film and those attending the screening should “remember the 11th of September 2001.”

“As an artist in this industry, I feel awful any kind of creative expression has been shut down in any way, shape or form. It just shouldn’t happen,” Josh Groban told the Insider. “I would not have wanted to be in the position that Sony is in.”

Groban and other celebrities, like Kudrow, were on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton for the People Magazine award show.

“It’s much bigger stakes obviously than like a preschool, schoolyard bully, but that’s how it feels,” Kudrow said.

Meanwhile, comedian Billy Eichner said he didn’t think “we should buckle.”

“No one is going to the movies anyway. Everyone wants to watch it at home, anyway. So why not go to Netflix or find some way to show it on demand,” Eichner said.

Industry insiders say the possibility of a North Korean involvement is having a chilling effect on other projects.
