Oscar winner Sally Field has joined the ranks of the celebrities supporting Britney Spears, insisting life must be unbearable for the troubled pop princess.
The veteran actress admits the media circus surrounding Spears has made her realise how easy she had it when she was a young star.
Field tells America's Ladies Home Journal magazine, "I can't imagine the pressure these young people are under. I thought it was rough, juggling a high-profile career with raising a family, but now you look at someone like Britney Spears and think, 'We had it easy!'
"When I began, there were a few fan magazines but there wasn't... the 24-hour media force that the internet has become."
