Reese Witherspoon Says 'Wild' Sex Scenes Were 'Awkward'

Reese Witherspoon casually makes her way through LAX Airport on Thursday (December 4) in Los Aneles.

That same day, the 38-year-old actress’ co-star Laura Dern stepped out for a screening of their new film Wild hosted by Ben Stiller at NeueHouse in New York City.

Also in attendance were Meg Ryan and Mamie Gummer.

“The physical aspects of the shoot were difficult,” Reese recently told USA Today about making the movie. “I have no experience with any of the drugs, so that was a lot of YouTubing and talking to people. By and far, the sexual aspects of the character were the hardest for me. I’d never done explicit love scenes and they were awkward. It’s an uncomfortable place to be.”

    It’s very difficult for actresses to reinvent themselves after wasting so much time on rom-coms.

    Somebody’s thirsty for an Oscar.

    And notice it’s ALWAYS the sex/nudity route that they choose during the reinvention process. It’s like they won’t be taken seriously within the industry until they do it. Look at Halle Berry. One of the worst actresses who ever lived … but she not only got nominated for an Oscar, she actually WON an Oscar — only after she did a nude and explicit sex scene. She hasn’t turned out a decent performance since then either.

    There has to be some studio backing as well to rev up the campaign. Oscars can be a bit rigged and had become part of the marketing process.
