Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Keaton are among those taking part in candid discussions about everything from Hollywood's female problem to the nude photo hack to stage poop

How did Eddie Redmayne's first meeting with Stephen Hawking turn into the equivalent of a Saturday Night Live skit? Which top actress' dog got her period on Scott Baio's white leisure suit? And what was Reese Witherspoon's reaction when David Fincher told her she couldn't star in Gone Girl?

Thirteen leading awards contenders recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for candid conversations about everything from the "cruel" treatment of Renee Zellweger to the nude photo hack to how to deal with stage poop (yes, you read that right) in THR's annual Actor and Actress Roundtables.
