Reese Witherspoon ranted about nude cell phone photos in her hilarious MTV Movie Awards speech June 5 — and it seemed like an obvious knock to Blake Lively!

Blake Lively‘s alleged nude cell phone photos didn’t only hurt HER reputation. Thanks to her fake tattoos, we know the scandalous pics were taken during her The Town shoot, which was the same time she was rumored to be hooking up with her director, Ben Affleck. Coincidentally, Ben’s wife, Jennifer Garner, is BFFs with Reese Witherspoon, who launched a timely, full-throttle attack against chicks who take naked photos of themselves to get ahead in Hollywood during her acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards June 5. What a great friend!

“I just want to say to all the girls out there, I know it’s cool to be bad. I get it. Alright, it’s cool to be bad. But it’s also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show,” Reese said as she accepted the MTV Generation Award. “When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed. Like — if you took naked pictures with your cell phone, you’d hide your face. Hide your face people. Hide your face. It’s totally possible.”

I think it’s pretty darn obvious to whom Reese, 35, was referring — but her rep says differently, telling US Weekly, “Reese was absolutely not referencing Blake Lively.”

Come on! Saying Reese wasn’t talking about Blake is kind of like Blake’s rep swearing it wasn’t Blake in the first leaked nude pics, right?

Think about it. When has Reese said or done anything that wasn’t 100% calculated? She’s not one to just run off at the mouth during a speech. She always maintains control — especially in front of the cameras. She knew she had millions of peoples’ attention at that very moment and stood up for her friend.Even if they were just rumors, it had to hurt Jen to hear them, right?

Watch Reese’s pointed (and hilarious) acceptance speech below and tell me if YOU think she was standing up for her friend!
