She went on to praise the actor for his work in the 1997 hit film Face/Off.

Speaking on the podcast, A Life of Greatness, in February, Olivia branded the backlash as ‘silly’.
‘The movie was made in the ’70s about the ’50s. It was a stage play, it’s a musical, it’s fun, it’s a fun movie musical, and not to be taken so seriously,’ she said.
‘I think everyone’s taking everything so seriously. We need to relax a little bit and just enjoy things for what they are. I didn’t see it like that at all, and I think it’s just a fun movie that entertains people, that’s all.’
