Keri Russell hopes Britney Spears is ‘happy’

Keri Russell hopes her fellow Mouseketeer Britney Spears’ dreams come true as the pop star inches her way toward freedom.

“I just hope she’s happy, whatever that means,” Russell exclusively told Page Six at a screening for her new film, “Antlers,” on Monday night. “I don’t know if any of us really know how her life really is, but I just hope she’s happy.”

Russell, 45, and Spears, 39, starred together on “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” in the early ’90s alongside other future stars like Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Christina Aguilera.

Spears, who was only 11 when she first appeared on the kids’ variety show, has been in a protracted battle to free herself from a 13-year conservatorship that was until recently helmed by her estranged father, Jamie Spears.

On Monday, the “Toxic” singer — whose conservatorship could end as soon as Nov. 12, when she is next set to appear in court — unleashed on her family members via Instagram, writing that they have hurt her “deeper” than fans will “ever know.”

While Britney turned to music after leaving the Mouse House, Russell took a different route by concentrating on acting. She is best known for her roles in “Felicity” and “The Americans,” the latter of which introduced her to her longtime boyfriend, Matthew Rhys.

The couple share a 5-year-old son, Sam, whom Russell proudly said is fluent in Welsh just like his actor father.

“I know words like colors and ‘go to sleep’ and ‘stop,’ but it’s amazing,” she raved.

Her latest flick is the supernatural horror film “Antlers” opposite Jesse Plemons and produced by legendary scare maven Guillermo del Toro.

“It was sort of a no-brainer,” she enthused of joining the cast. “When Guillermo brings in his powerhouse of that monster creativity, there were so many people involved in creating that giant monster. That was so rare. It’s all CGI now.”
