Reese Witherspoon is telling it like it is!
During her speech at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards on Monday, Nov. 9, the 39-year-old actress blasted the movie industry for not appreciating "female-driven material" and revealed she started her own production company to ensure more women are featured in Hollywood projects.

“[I'm tired of seeing] a chorus of talented, accomplished women, saran-wrapped into tight leather pants... tottering along on very cute, but completely impractical shoes, turn to a male lead and ask them, ‘What do we do now?’ Do you know any woman in any crisis situation who has absolutely no idea what to do?” Reese quipped at the NYC event.

"I do not like to be underestimated. Films with women at the center are not a public-service project, they are a big-time, bottom-line-enhancing, moneymaking commodity," she continued.

Through her first production company, Type A Films — founded in 2000 — Reese has created hit films including Legally Blonde, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, Penelope, Four Christmases and Legally Blondes.
In March 2012, the mom-of-three merged Type A Films with another firm to create a new production company, Pacific Standard, which has since created Oscar-nominated movies Wild and Gone Girl.
