Reese Witherspoon Sticks Up For the Good Girls

June 6, 2011

Reese Witherspoon let it rip during last night’s MTV VMAs, slamming the behavior of the modern crop of young starlets.

Reese Witherspoon does not like the way young women in Hollywood are playing the fame game. The sexy Academy Award-winner made it known she is not a fan of reality television, sex tapes, or nude sexting.

In accepting the Generation Award Reese said she understood that it’s cool to be bad, “But it's also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show.” The 35-year-old then added, “When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed.” Is Reese hinting what I think she’s hinting?

In what many viewed as a thinly veiled dig at Blake Lively, Witherspoon criticized girls who sext and send naked photos of themselves. She said, “And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people. Hide your face!” Sound advice.

The southern belle finished her speech by saying she wanted to make it okay again to be a good girl. She said, “For all the girls out there, it's possible to be a good girl. I'm going to try to make it cool.” Yeah, let’s hear it for the good girls!

Is it possible that good is now the new bad?
