Reese Witherspoon is speaking out for Renee Zellweger’s “face shaming”.

“It’s horrible. It’s cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely,” said Witherspoon.

The actress goes on to say “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.”

We apologize that this book didn’t’ reflect that belief. All Barbie titles moving forward will be written to inspire girls imaginations and portray an empowered Barbie character.”
