Reese Witherspoon had some choice words for today’s young starlets at last night’s MTV Movie Awards, while accepting her Generation Award. In Reese Witherspoon’s day, no one would ever be caught dead letting nude photos be taken or starring in a sex tape. But my, how times have changed.
Here’s what Witherspoon at the end of her speech:
“I get it, girls, that it’s cool to be a bad girl. But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed. And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people!”
She didn’t single anyone out, but it was impossible not to think of Blake Lively in particular, who was in attendance, but probably not in the audience at the time, otherwise we could have expected a reaction shot. The question is: Who was she really addressing? Truthfully, only a handful of quasi-famous young girls have “released sex tapes.” And have the ones who have — Karissa Shannon, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, etc. — made it in Hollywood the way Witherspoon has? Of course not. At best, they’re transient reality stars, and not A-list, Oscar-winning actresses. And Lindsay Lohan agrees, so who are we to argue?
