Anne Hathaway defends Jennifer Lawrence for scolding reporter
Actor Anne Hathaway has defended Jennifer Lawrence, after the Joy star raised eyebrows for telling off a reporter, saying her scolding was taken out of context.
Hathaway, 33, took to Facebook to lend her support to Lawrence, took home the Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy or musical, reported People magazine.
“It’s become pretty clear that the Jennifer Lawrence ‘scolding’ was taken out of context and that she was dryly joking with a journalist who was indeed using his phone to take photos of her.
“Let’s not continue the sad but common practise of building people especially women up just to viciously tear them down when we perceive them to have misstepped. Jennifer is a beautiful, talented, wildly successful, popular, FOUR TIME OSCAR NOMINATED young woman. Please let us not punish her for these things,” she wrote.
Lawrence, 25, was in the middle on an interview backstage after winning her award when she told the reporter, “You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro. You can’t do that. You gotta live in the now.”
