Women need to stand up for them­selves: He­len Mir­ren

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Vet­eran ac­tor He­len Mir­ren (above) thinks women should be taught how to stand up for them­selves at an early age.

The 70-year-old ac­tor, who has no chil­dren with hus­band Tay­lor Hack­ford, has praised Jen­nifer Lawrence for re­cently pen­ning an es­say about in­equal­ity in Hol­ly­wood, re­ported Fe­male­first.

In a joint in­ter­view with the Hunger Games star and six other lead­ing fe­male ac­tors, in­clud­ing Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett and Carey Mul­li­gan, He­len told Jen­nifer, “I love the way you wrote about it be­cause you wrote about it very sim­ply and per­son­ally. I so recog­nised that thing you said about, ‘... I want to be po­lite. We’ve got to stop be­ing po­lite’.”
