The Reader star also shared that the horrible articles about women’s bodies in the media have reduced enormously saying, “But mainstream media behaving in these really irresponsible damaging ways – I do think that has actually stopped.”

The Oscar-winning star also showered praises on the young lot stepping in Hollywood calling them “fearless” adding, “They just don’t know fear when it comes to stepping out – they don’t know that bit. They just know, ‘Yes, let’s go.’”
