Reese Witherspoon Quit This Movie Because of Her Scottish Accent: 'It Was Bad!'

Reese Witherspoon made an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine with her Sing co-star Matthew McConaughey and revealed that she once had to quit a film over her bad Scottish accent.

“Accents aren’t my thing…Scottish is really…I was supposed to do…Oh no I don’t really want to talk about it!” Reese said. “I tried to do a Scottish accent once… It was bad, I had to quit the movie.”

“It’s not my finest moment. I don’t want to talk about it any more. That just came out and I really wish it hadn’t,” Reese continued.

Fans have noted that Reese was supposed to voice the role of Merida in Pixar’s 2012 movie Brave, but exited the film. The movie is set in the Scottish Highlands, and while Reese doesn’t come out and say it, it appears as if this could be the role she’s referring to. Kelly McDonald took over the voice role.

    A shame more actors don’t quit their projects when they realize they’re terrible at trying to do an accent for the role.

    Only 15 days went by since my former post ! Fine ! (Better than 2 months !!!)
    Reese, all your words about women are so true !
    (Kiss-Kiss & Hug-Hug !!)² !!! for your wisdom too !
    1000-SUNS-POWER-FOREVERRWhenISayHereComesTheSunThenIMeanReese !!!
    Isn´t it even a discrimination, that the word women contends the word
    men? And that men is the shorter word? You know, BIG MOVIES content
    often very short names! That can make the peaple feel,
    that men are bigger because the word men is shorter than the word women !
    Thus, my suggestion is a new word for women;
    The new singular for woman: Wom
    The new plural for women: Wem
    (Of course, if people now associate the word worm, if they hear wom,
    then we should decide for another word: May be wam ?
    I´ll keep on supporting all wem !
    WEM-POWER !!!!!!!!!!
