Reese Witherspoon Calls Renee Zellweger Face Critics 'Cruel'

Reese Witherspoon stands tall on the brand new cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s 2014 Actress Roundtable issue.

The 38-year-old actress was joined on the cover and for a roundtable discussion by Amy Adams, Hilary Swank, Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette, Laura Dern, and Felicity Jones.

Reese opened up about her feelings regarding the attention Renee Zellweger has gotten for her face.

“It’s horrible. It’s cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely,” Reese said of the critics. “I know this is so Pollyanna of me, but why – and it’s particularly women – why do they have to tear women down? And why do we have to tear other women down to build another woman up? It drives me crazy. Like, this one looks great without her makeup but that one doesn’t look good without her makeup, and it’s all just a judgment and assault that I don’t – look, men are prey to it as well. I just don’t think it’s with the same sort of ferocity.”

Also discussed was Jennifer Lawrence‘s recent nude photo hacking.

“I feel really strongly that there’s nothing deviant about two lovers sharing sexual intimacy. That is normal. It’s been happening since the beginning of time,” Patricia said. “What is deviant is when a community decides that they can break into your sexuality, steal that from you, insert themselves, observe your private sexuality.”

  • LEXY1975

    HiIlary swank ¨ the homesman ¨ and Amy Adams ¨ Big Eyes ¨ ….
    Julianne Moore is way overdue ….

  • Jordy Lou

    Anyone saying we only tear down women who get plastic surgery is clearly braindead… Mickey Rourke anyone? Bruce Jenner? Ridiculous plastic surgery is not something to applaud.

  • shh

    I guess there are no women of color in this industry right.?

  • lucy

    Because Hilary is getting great reviews for the Homesman, and Amy has Big Eyes coming out. Rosamund is pregnant and due to give birth soon, and she’s a lock for a nomination. Who wants sour face Blunt on the front of a magazine, bad enough they put Dern’s mug on there. Jessica should have been there, before Dern. At least they didn’t sink to the level of putting “you know who” on the cover.

  • lucy

    Who doesn’t like Amy, she’s a great actress, always gets rave reviews for her films.

  • Loraine

    White white white white white white white!!!

  • annie

    yeah, and it just so happens women do it more than men. shes delusional if she thinks men who’ve changed their faces are spared.

  • bbm

    Resse looks awful in that individual picture, and Felicity has one of the most beautiful faces i’ve ever seen!

    Reese is right, yup !
    All these actresses look very beautiful.
    But Reese is the one, I love, and it´s not just because of the way she looks. Additionally, it´s because of her unique complex personality, that includes a fantastic wisdom. Of course, the other actresses are having complex personalities, too. Every woman has her own unique and complex personality.
    The “whole” about a woman is the way she looks & the sort of complex personality (with all her interests, aversions and skills).
    “The whole is the truth” – Hegel
    And Reese is the “specific whole”, that makes my heart beating the strongest way for hers, yup !
