Reese Witherspoon: My disgust at director who abused me aged 16

Jennifer Lawrence Says She Was Forced to do a

Jennifer Lawrence shared a personal story about a "degrading and humiliating" experience she had with a Hollywood producer during her speech at Elle's Women in Hollywood event Monday night.

LOS ANGELES-Jennifer Lawrence has said she was made to stand in a nude line-up and told to lose weight by film producers at the start of her career.

After being told to lose 15 pounds in two weeks for the role, Lawrence asked a male producer on the film about this unrealistic diet regime, to which he confessed he "didn't know why everyone thought [she] was so fat", as he "thought she was perfectly fuckable".

"True disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old", she added, "and anger that I felt at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition at my employment". After this scene, a particularly humiliating, the producer has pointed the finger at the silhouette of the actress: " She told me that I had to use these pictures of me to control my diet. The actress said she felt "trapped" by the experience and allowed the harassment to happen because she "didn't want to be a whistleblower" and thought it was what she had to do to further her career in Hollywood. "Every human being, no matter how successful they are, should have the power to be treated with respect because they're human". To make matters worse, at that time, J.Law had been informed that the actress before her had been let go for not losing the weight fast enough.

"I want you to know we're here for you".

The actress went on to pledge solidarity to "any boy, girl, man, or woman who does not feel like they can protect themselves".

He has been accused of rape, sexual assault and harassment.

Witherspoon is the latest in a flood of women speaking up since The New York Times earlier this month published a report illustrating a decades-long pattern of sexual abuse of women in Hollywood by the high-profile producer. "We're all here for each other".

Reese made a decision to speak out about what happened to her when she was just a teenager at the Elle Women in Hollywood event in Beverley Hills on Monday night (16.10.17) and admitted that the incident still haunts her now. "Together, now, we will stop this kind of behavior from happening", she said, per Elle. We will stop normalizing these horrific situations. "For the young women in this room, life is going to be different because we're with you, we have your back and it makes me feel better".
