Women need to stand up for themselves: Helen Mirren
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’.”
