Reese has gone on the record saying she's sick of the trend among young women to act as if it's cute to be stupid.

"It's a new movement among young women that it's cute to be dumb. I have a little girl, and when I see her looking at those [starlets] who ... are pretending to be dumb, I think that's [terrible]."

"Our mothers and our grandmothers and the women that came before us fought so hard to overcome the stereotype of women being not smart enough to vote, not smart enough to [receive] higher education, to have great jobs. And to single-handedly go out in a very public way and say, 'You know what, I don't really care about what they achieved. I'm just going be stupid and that's cute.' I don't think it's a good message for young women."
