"I have never met her, but I really feel like I keep thinking about her song, 'Overprotected,' and I think that she really needs to be able to live her life for herself, because she hasn’t for so long," Mara told ET.
She continued, "She has been living a life under somebody else's control and that is terrible, and I think that is the truth for a lot of people who achieve that level of fame. They don’t really have any freedom."
Mara noted that Britney not only lost her freedom because of the paparazzi but also because of the conservatorship.
"I think that we need to let her live her life because anybody would be chaffing under those restrictions, anybody would be struggling," Mara concluded.
