Reese Witherspoon: 'young Hollywood Is Silly & Aimless'

  1. Legally Blonde Reese Witherspoon is upset with 'sad and very strange' behavior of many Young Hollywood girls, because they demean the women who worked hard to achieve equality. She says:

    ''We don't need to keep reading about female celebrities who are out there posing all the time and craving attention and exploiting the sex symbol stereotype. My mother and grandmother fought incredibly hard against a male establishment to become high achievers in their lives, and I think women should be able to be sexy and smart and successful, without being silly and aimless."

  2. Ok she didn't really call Britney by name! I do agree with her though.
     
  3. If this is true than god bless Reese!

    I LOVE her and she is totally speaking the truth!!

    ROCK ON REESE!!
     
  4. Reese is such a beautiful, intelligent woman. She's one of actresses I really admire.
     
  5. She speaks the truth all right.

    Reese is the complete package: intelligent, grounded, ambitious, sweet, powerful, sexy, and feminine. She ROCKS!!!
     
  6. She is right and I'm glad she had the guts to come out and say it in public!
     
  7. Very powerful words. I admire how she doesn't crave to be in the spot light like the other celebs of her day.
     
  8. I think this may be true I remembered she said something similar before, early last year I think. Good for her.

    HOLLYWOOD - Reese Witherspoon has hit out at Jessica Simpson, accusing her of cashing in onher stupidity.
    The actress was appalled with Simpson's behavior in her reality show
    Newlyweds, insisting she should be ashamed not celebrate her ignorance.
    Witherspoon, 29, says, "Creating a cultural icon out of someone who goes, 'I'm
    stupid, isn't it cute?' makes me want to throw daggers.
    "I want to say to them, 'My grandma did not fight for what she fought for,
    just so you can start telling women it's fun to be stupid.'"

  9. Reese is right. I miss the "old" young Hollywood... we were so lucky before, we had Reese, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Liv Tyler, Gwyneth, Natalie Portman, Wynona!!!!! To name but a few...
     
  10. Can't stand her:hrmm: ..funny how she did a movie like Legally Blonde to begin with..
     
  11. I don't like her either, yes she made a good statement and I do agree but everyone has their own agenda. Isn't cashing in on being stupid actually quite smart. I would love to make the money Jessica Simpson makes. However, I do think America's youth needs better role models than Brit and Paris.
    She just acts so above everyone. Sorry, I was in a restraunt she came into years ago. She came in and when she wasn't seated right away, she threw a fit and said "Don't you know who I am?" Ugh, I haven't liked her since.
     
  12. lol, wow..
    she doesn't need to bash specific people..I tend to like "humble talent" as opposed to self righteous martyrs.
     
  13. Reese has a point !!!!!!
     
  14. Her character in Legally Blonde was thought to be dumb because she was blonde... not because she did dumb things like make a sex tape, or pose naked for photos etc

    Go Reese
     
  15. ^^ yeah AND it was a work of fiction. Not how she lives her life.
