Of all the lines Laura Dern has uttered in nearly four decades as an actress, there’s one in particular that she’s heard repeated over and over again. It’s from 1993’s blockbuster hit Jurassic Park, said by the character of paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler: “Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the Earth.”

It always makes Dern proud.

“At various events, for women’s rights advocacy and various organizations, I have many, many times, unrelated to me, seen a Dr. Ellie Sattler quote used to start the conference or start the conversation,” Dern tells Yahoo Entertainment. “I just love that Ellie is, you know, a bit of a feminist hero. And I know for kids, when I did that film, they really loved seeing her in power and fighting off raptors, doing some very cool, badass stuff. Ellie is forever alive in my heart, and I’m very close to her.”
