Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Lawrence Share Hollywood Abuse Stories

Reese Witherspoon & Jennifer Lawrence Share Hollywood Abuse Stories

The Oscar-winning star said she felt "degraded and humiliated" by the line-up which saw her pitted against a slimmer actress.

His testimony is deeply moving. "But after hearing all the stories these past few days and hearing these courageous women speak up tonight about things that we're kind of told to sweep under the rug and not to talk about, it's made me want to speak up and speak up loudly because I actually felt less alone this week than I have ever felt in my entire career".

"I asked to speak to a producer about the unrealistic diet regime and he responded by telling me he didn't know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was perfectly "f***able", she revealed. Well before becoming the heroine of the sagaHunger Games, the pretty blonde has lived a hell during a casting.

Lawrence explained that when she was just starting out, she was told that she needed to lose 15 pounds in two weeks for a role. A girl before me had already been recalée because she had not lost enough weight. "We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates", Lawrence said.

And the story does not stop there.

While onstage at Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday night, Jennifer called the scandal "oddly unifying" for women as it has encouraged them to go public with their stories, adding that it was "fundamental to the female experience to be mistreated and feel ashamed about it". "And if today, Jennifer Lawrence is among actresses, the most fashionable, it is thanks to his talent".

Wanting to defend herself, Lawrence informed another producer of this inappropriate treatment.

The "mother!" star said the freakish incident happened when she was just starting out in her career and was ordered to stand naked in a line-up with other actresses so that a female producer could judge her body size, People reported.

She then offered some words of solidarity for young actresses starting in the business. I didn't want to be a whistleblower, I didn't want these embarrassing stories talked about in a magazine, I just wanted a career ... "I will lend my voice to any boy, girl, man, or woman who does not feel like they can protect themselves". "We're all here for each other. We will change this narrative and make a difference for all of those individuals pursuing their dreams".
