"Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox was on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Monday (July 20) where she talked about Caitlyn Jenner's experience as a transgender woman and how hard it must be to transition so publicly.

Cox was recently at a screening of the premiere episode of "I Am Cait," Jenner's E! docu-series about her transition. Cox says in the first episode, viewers will see how Jenner "sometimes has to change cars multiple times to dodge the paparazzi, which is an insane way to live."

"There's no way she could have transitioned privately, and I think she's doing it very eloquently and very beautifully publicly," says Cox, who had a very different experience transitioning in her 20s as a working-class woman in New York City.

"What I think is so beautiful about this, my visibility and Caitlyn's visibility -- diverse representations of trans people in the media are so important," she adds.

Fellow "Late Late Show" guest Christina Hendricks jumps in to say that she's happy for Jenner and all transgender people. "To me, it's something that people do all the time now and I'm happy when they can feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. I just -- live and let live, I'm happy for her."
