Washington: MTV has not been known for promoting wholesome values with shows like ‘Skins’ and ‘Jersey Shore’, but actress Reese Witherspoon’s words of wisdom that she sent to her female fans and fellow screen stars during the network’s 2011 MTV Movie Awards certainly proved to be a refreshing change.
“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,” a news channel quoted the 35-year-old as telling the audience as she accepted the MTV Generation Award at the Los Angeles-taped show.
“And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people!” Hide your face!” she said.
The ‘Walk the Line’ star ended her speech by vowing to make ‘good’ behavior a predominant Tinseltown trend.
“So, for all the girls out there, it’s totally possible to be a good girl. I’m going to try to make it cool,” she added.
