Reese Witherspoon Wants Her to Daughter to Grow Up Seeing Complex & Interesting Women in Film

Recently, the 38-year-old Wild actress opened up about the slump in movies showing a strong female lead and why she wanted it to change.

“I just recognize that about three years ago, I started seeing this complete lack of interesting female leads in film,” Reese told the Washington Post. “First I got mad, really mad. And then I was like, ‘It’s nobody’s fault; if you’re not proactive about things…’”

She continued, saying: “I’d had a company before, but it was basically about trying to develop things that I would eventually be in. So I just switched the idea: If I can develop anything for any other women, I don’t care who it is; I just want my daughter to grow up seeing complex, interesting, nuanced women in film. So I started it with my own money.”

FYI: Reese is wearing a Talbots sweater.

    Nice to see Reese again ! She looks ossom, yup !
    Reese is absolute right !
    There are still too less complex, interesting, nuanced women in too many films, yup ! There are still too many stereotypistic female characters, that are simply sexistic, BECAUSE they are stereotypistic and not hitting the complex personality, that represents the reality about women´s personality, yup !
