Caitlyn Jenner And Reese Witherspoon To Share Woman Of The Year Prize – Report
Transgender Olympian Caitlyn Jenner and Reese Witherspoon have reportedly been selected to share the 2015 Glamour Woman of the Year honor.
Kim Kardashian’s stepfather went public with her transition from male to female earlier this year, and now she has been named as Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year. She won’t be the only one to receive the accolade. Oscar winner Witherspoon will also have the honor bestowed upon her, according to GossipCop.com.
The two stars will each feature on covers for the publication’s upcoming December issue, although a formal announcement isn’t expected to be made until next month.
The title closes out a groundbreaking year for Jenner, who opened up about her gender identity crisis in an emotional TV interview with Diane Sawyer in April, when she was still known as Bruce.
“My brain is much more female, than it is male…” the retired athlete said during the candid chat. “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”
The declaration was made just a month after the 65-year-old’s divorce from Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, was finalized following 24 years as husband and wife. They split in 2013.
The star then revealed herself as Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair, and documented her lifestyle change in the reality TV series, I Am Cait.
The 25th annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards will be presented at the end of the year.
Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o served as last year’s (14) top honoree, while fellow 2014 award winners included transgender Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox, actress/writer Mindy Kaling, creative director of Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton, supermodel Natalia Vodianova, and Chelsea Clinton.
