Reese Witherspoon Has Never Been Excited to Start a Movie

Reese Witherspoon Has Never Been Excited to Start a Movie

Reese Witherspoon shows off her ageless beauty on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK‘s January 2015 issue, on newsstands December 2.

Here is what the 38-year-old Wild actress had to share with the mag:

On being stereotyped in Hollywood because of her looks: “Don’t put me in that box. Or any box, for that matter. People are complex, on-screen and off. Can’t we do justice to that?”

On why she finds comedies less daunting than dramas
: “I think about backing out of everything. I get to the beginning and I’m like, ‘I do not want to make this movie.’ I’ve never had an experience where I was like, ‘I can’t wait to start.’ I don’t know why. It’s always going to require something that doesn’t feel good, some sort of challenge or emotional gutting. It’s not a fun space to live in a lot of the time. It’s why I enjoy doing comedies. It’s much easier, thinking of what rhymes with truck.”

On limitations to the roles offered to actresses in Hollywood: “It wasn’t as if there was a lack of roles being offered to me. It was the dynamic aspect of playing a really interesting, complicated person that was not readily available. Honestly, I don’t know a woman who isn’t complicated. It’s strange that you don’t see many complicated women on film; complicated meaning complex, I should say.”

    Reese, your latest 9 fotos on Instagram are faantastic, yup !
    I like your wisdom on the “fear-foto”. My wisdom on fear:
    **************************************************************
    “Courage is the mastery of fear, but not its absence.
    And if I see your face with a tear, I´ll ´embrace-away´ your fear.

    And I wish I can do that, even if I´m not physically by your near.
    Love gives the power to master the courage.”
    ***************************************************************
    On your foto Monday-Muse with Lauren Hutton:
    Well, 3 favourite private things, that female commentors would bring, if they went out alone into the wild? Of course, all female commentors forgot the ´thing´, that would create fun downtown, I think, yup ! Of couuuuuuurse ! So many lonely nights in the wild. That ´thing´ shouldn´t miss for most of the ladies, yup !
