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.”
