Someone's fed up with the lack of class in Hollywood and she's not going to take it anymore.

This weekend, Rashida Jones, best known for her role on Parks and Recreation, launched a Twitter rant against some some of her fellow Hollywood actresses—particularly those who are little freer with the body.

"This week's celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular #stopactinglikewhores," she tweeted. "Let me clarify. I don't shame ANYone for anything they choose to do with their lives or bodies. BUT I think we ALL need to take a look at what we are accepting as 'the norm'..."

In recent weeks, there's been a slew of sexy photos, naked performances and jaw-dropping videos in the headlines. And Jones possibly wants some of the more notable ladies of Hollywood to think twice about their actions. "There is a whole generation of young women watching," she followed up. "Sure, be SEXY but leave something to the imagination."

For some stars, that's easier said than done. And Jones wrapped up her rant with a little humor to top things off, this time asking for the fellas to show a little skin. "Also, calling on all men to show me dat ass."

Do you think Jones has a point about female stars being too sexy or exposing too much of themselves these days?
