Los Angeles, March 25 (IANS) Actress Julia Roberts has revealed that she was thrilled to work on “Mirror Mirror” with Lily Collins because she is a big fan of Lily’s rocker dad Phil Collins.
The Oscar winning actress admits Phil Collins and his band Genesis is the sound of her youth so she was thrilled to get the chance to work with his daughter on the movie.
Julia said: “Are you kidding, Genesis? I’m in my forties. Genesis is like my youth.”
The 44-year-old also admitted she is happy not to be a young actress like Lily because it is so much more difficult to deal with fame than it was in her day.
“It seemed so much easier, it made more sense. It was more kind of a gradual progression of things I think for the way the business was when I started out. But she seems to be holding her own, she’s got no problem. This culture of meanness is new,” reports okmagazine.com.
“I like my job, I’m happy at work, it’s fun and pretty extraordinary.”
