“She’s so fantastic,” Roberts gushed to the UK’s ITV show “Lorraine” while promoting “Ben Is Back,” revealing that she got tongue-tied when they met. “I actually had the good fortune of meeting her briefly, kind of getting a couple of words out of my mouth towards her at the Golden Globes. And I loved ‘The Favourite’ and I was just absolutely thrilled when she won.”
Roberts watched Colman’s surprise victory from backstage at the Oscars as she was preparing to present Best Picture. She even Instagrammed a shot of Colman mid-speech, writing, “I [heart] Olivia!” And this love affair is indeed pure. “Well, who doesn’t [love her]?” she quipped.
