Reese Witherspoon upset by Time magazine article

Reese rattled by article

A tone-deaf Time magazine article which referred to Reese Witherspoon as a "domestic diva" left the actress in tears.

The Legally Blonde star appeared as a caricature of herself, alongside Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow and Blake Lively, in the 2015 piece, which poked fun at the quartet's entrepreneurial efforts as lifestyle queens.

"I had started a clothing business, Gwyneth was really growing Goop, Blake Lively had a business, Jessica Alba had a business and they did a caricature cartoon of all of us," the Oscar winner tells the We Are Supported By... podcast.

"We were in ballgowns and they stuck our heads on, and Jessica was holding an iron and I was holding a vacuum cleaner. The whole thing was so offensive that I burst into tears.

"I'm not even talking about 10 years ago. I'm talking about 2015 when we decided, 'OK we're going to be entrepreneurial, take a swing, invest our own money, our own time, our own reputation and try to do something that George Clooney has done, Robert De Niro has done'... - and getting lampooned for it. That message to little girls is: 'If you've had success in one area, you can't have success in another'.

"There's several women who've said acting is not for me: 'I don't want to be an actress anymore, I want to do things that are entrepreneurial and want to have a different kind of life for my family'."
