Los Angeles: Actress Julia Roberts has heaped praise on Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence for her famous essay on pay disparity on the basis of gender in Hollywood. Roberts said she applauds the 25-year-old actress for speaking her mind, reported Aceshowbiz.
“She’s a young, fabulous, talented whippersnapper and I love that she’s stirring things up,” the Pretty Woman said.
“I mean, she just – she’s so energetic and seems to speak her mind, and I think it’s great. I think it’s great to kind of shake things up. I think it’s great to go, ‘Excuse me. Over here. I know something now and I’m frustrated by it and why is this?’,” Roberts added.
The 48-year-old sees some similarities in herself.
“I feel like part of my personality is ferocious, and part of my personality is the greatest power you can wield toward an enemy is to ignore their existence.”
