Witherspoon spoke out at the 24th annual Elle Women in Hollywood awards held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, California.

While introducing her Big Little Lies costar, Laura Dern, who was an honoree at the award banquet, she admitted that the Weinstein scandal has been tough on her.

"I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I have found it hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate," she said. "A lot of the feelings I've been having about anxiety, about being honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier or taking action."

That's when she opens up about what happened to her when she was only 16.
