Sunday, Dec. 13 marks five years since Jennifer Lawrence appeared on the big-screen as Joy Mangano in the Oscar-nominated film Joy. The 2015 movie focused on the inventor’s journey to become a self-made millionaire—and today, so many moviegoers continue to tell the real Joy just how inspiring her story is.

“I have always felt like we all follow this path in life and even though we think we’re all so different, there are these common threads: Perseverance and people trying to really overcome challenges and keep going forward,” Joy exclusively shared with E! News. “There’s a lot of that in all of us.”

The 64-year-old businesswoman added, “What fans tell me consistently is that they watch it over and over again like Home Alone. It’s such an inspiring and wonderful movie and Jennifer Lawrence, my sweetheart, I couldn’t be prouder for her to play the role of Joy and to get to know her. I consider her brilliant way beyond her years and probably one of the funniest people I’ve ever met.”
