Reese Witherspoon thinks women should be given the opportunity to "fail" in Hollywood.

Alicia Vikander Says Julianne Moore Once Defended Her From a Powerful Man's Crude Joke on Set

  Alicia Vikander Says Julianne Moore Once Defended Her From a Powerful Man's Crude Joke on Set Julianne Moore came to Alicia Vikander‘s defense at a crucial time. The 29-year-old Swedish actress appears on the latest cover of Voguewhere she reveals that Moore once defended her on the set of 2014’s Seventh Son. Vikander says that a powerful man on set made a crude joke at her expense and Moore shut him down. “I was really embarrassed, and I would have just laughed it off,” Vikander says. “But Julianne turned to him and said, ‘If you ever do that again, I’m walking out of here and I’m not coming back.’ She was just, like, ‘Don’t you f—ing say that again.’ It showed me that she had the power. And that meant so much to me.” The Tomb Raider star was part of the group of women and men at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards who wore all black in solidarity with the Time’s Up initiative. She says that joining in the movement made her feel like part of a bigger group. “It was such a community that came together,” Vikander says. “I got on the phone with Natalie [Portman], whom I’d never met, and Reese [Witherspoon]. Suddenly I felt like I made a lot of new friends.” She continued, “One thing that really got to me in their initial email was the fact that—because women are not as well represented in all industries—we often have to fight for jobs. The competition is so tough that instead of getting to know each other and working together, we learned at an early age to compete for that single spot.

The 41-year-old actress said: "There are moments that you have to evaluate whether silence is going to be your only option. And certain times that was our only option. But now is not that time. You know, we have public voices. We have resources. But women who are workers in this country have nothing to gain in certain times by coming forward. But we want to help. It gives me strength to hopefully help other women."

Reese had previously insisted sexism and sexual harassment has been "rampant" in Hollywood for years.

She quipped: "I don't know if you guys heard, but there's been a lot of stuff going on in Hollywood. I don't know if you guys have read the news or anything, but we've been dealing with some really ugly truth of sexism and sexual harassment and it has been rampant for far longer than I've been an actress, but it's brought back a lot of painful memories for people and it's been a real time of reckoning for us and there is definitely a growing realisation that we need to take the time to really examine the biases that exist in our industry and make much needed change."
