Reese Witherspoon has hit out at female Hollywood stars who strip off - she finds it degrading.

The actress is baffled why even successful actresses still undress.

She says, "What gets me is how many women - young women - give up their power and their sense of self.

"Thinking they're going to get more out of life if they take off their clothes and objectify themselves, instead of functioning on the principle that they're smart and capable, that you can be an actress and not be on the covers of T+A magazines. I'm flabbergasted by how many legitimate actresses do that. It blows my mind.'"
