Julia Roberts loves co-star's dad

March 24th, 2012

Julia Roberts loved working with Lily Collins on 'Mirror Mirror' because she is a huge fan of Lily's father.

The Oscar winning beauty admits Phil Collins' Genesis is the sound of her youth so she was thrilled to get the chance to work with his daughter on the movie.

Asked if she is a fan of Phil, Julia said: ''Are you kidding, Genesis? I'm in my forties. Genesis is like my youth.''

Julia, 44, 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.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: ''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.

''I like my job, I'm happy at work, it's fun and pretty extraordinary.''
