Reese Witherspoon Wants the Academy to Be More Diverse

Reese Witherspoon is speaking out about the 2016 Oscars nominations and her thoughts on why the Academy needs to be more diverse.

“I really appreciated this article in TIME on the lack of racial and gender diversity in this year’s Oscar nominations,” the 39-year-old Oscar-winning actress wrote on Facebook.

“So disappointed that some of 2015′s best films, filmmakers and performances were not recognized…” Reese added. “Nothing can diminish the quality of their work, but these filmmakers deserve recognition. As an Academy member, I would love to see a more diverse voting membership.”

Pictured inside: Reese stepping out of her office with her friend Meg Ryan on Wednesday (January 20) in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was also seen working out that morning and the day before!
