In an industry where so many talented people are tearing down other talented people, it sure is nice to see someone show some solidarity!
Hathaway took to Facebook today to support the Joy actress over an exchange she had with a foreign press reporter that, although was seemingly intended as humor, was taken the wrong way online (when has that happened before?!).
“Dear the Internet,
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 practice 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.
A J-Law fan

If her kind words don’t fill your heart with Joy, we can’t help you!
