Los Angeles: Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon says she doesn't want to be stereotyped because of her looks.
When it comes to the roles she takes on, the 38-year-old, wants to speak out against the Hollywood stereotypes that come along with her blonde hair, reports people.com.
"Don't put me in that box. Or any box, for that matter. People are complex, on-screen and off. Can't we do justice to that?" she said in an interview with Harper's Bazaar British edition magazine.
"It wasn't as if there was a lack of roles being offered to me. It was the dynamic aspect of playing a really interesting, complicated person that was not readily available," added the "Legally Blonde" star.
She also said that all women are complicated.
"Honestly, I don't know a woman who isn't complicated. It's strange that you don't see many complicated women on film; complicated meaning complex, I should say," she said.
