Reese Witherspoon Advises Women to Run Away From This Type of Man

Reese Witherspoon Advises Women to Run Away From This Type of Man

Reese Witherspoon is so chic in Miu Miu faux fur coat on the cover of Glamour‘s October 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On recognizing her privilege as a white woman: “Another thing I think about a lot is how it feels to be a minority woman in America, so rarely seeing yourself onscreen, and it’s unconscionable. When I asked Mindy Kaling, ‘Don’t you ever get exhausted by always having to create your own roles?’ she said, ‘Reese, I’ve never had anything that I didn’t create for myself.’ I thought, Wow, I feel like a jerk for asking that; I used to have parts that just showed up for me. I can’t imagine how hard it is to write your own parts and simultaneously have to change people’s perceptions of what a woman of color is in today’s society.”

On her advice for women dating this type of man: “Run away from a man who can’t handle your ambition. Run. So many men think ambition is awesome and sexy!”

On misogyny in Hollywood today: “I’ve also had studio heads say to me, ‘We don’t want to make biopics about women,’ or more simply, ‘We’re not interested in female-driven material.’ (My first go-round as a producer with Gone Girl? Every studio passed but one. When the book hit number one on the best seller lists, it was a different story.)”

    Makes me happy to see you so happy on that shopping spree, Reese !

    Wowsa, after deactivating some firefox-addons (little computer programmes), my delay of time during writing here on jared
    is gone ! That´s funtastic !!!

    So right, Reese! Men, who do not respect ambition of women the right way,
    do not handle them morally. And thus, such kind of men just see
    them too much as sex-objects. And thus, such kind of men are awful !
    ***
    Reese, your Insta-pic “Rolling into …. Labor Day” is fantastic !
    Makes me remember that romantic Car-Scene in “Cruel Intentions” !
    ***
    And
    on that video on “HelloSunshineCommunication” (on Insta) you are so right: There are really too less top grossing movies
    directed by women.

    She was already successfull before she met Jim.
    She had already that million dollars before she met Jim,
    and she worked already as a producer before she met Jim.
    ***
    For me, her movie “Penelope” was a successful movie !

    She has a brain and she is sexy !
    And she has a good heart !

    If a black famous actress had said that sentence
    (That “Don´t you konw who I am?”) in a same
    situation, the consequences would have been
    exactly the same.
    ***
    Don´t racisistisize that little mistake of Reese.
    ***
    And Jim was the one, who was in front of the
    steering wheel. The BIGGER MISTAKE was his mistake.
    And “that sentence” of Reese only happened because she
    was under the influence of alcohol, I think.
    And she apologized several times.
    ***
    All these aspects have to be considered.
