Reese Witherspoon Responds to Being Called a Has-Been

Reese Witherspoon chats on the phone while walking through JFK Airport on Friday (August 18) in New York City.

The 41-year-old actress attended the Hamptons premiere of Home Again the next day!

Recently, Reese appeared on THR‘s podcast to talk about her Emmy nomination for Big Little Lies, and responded to being referenced as a “has-been” by a New Yorker writer back in 2012.

“Someone in The New Yorker said that I was ‘a has-been’ or my career was over, and I remember thinking — how old was I in 2012, like 36? — I was like, ‘Wow, that’s brutal!’ That really bugged me,” Reese declared.

    Well if she is being truthful with herself she had a long run of boring/terrible duds. Four Weddings was a success in 2008 and then not any other type of success until 2014 with Wild.

    The article just noted that she wasn’t as popular as she was ten years ago – they even included Tom Hanks on the list! It’s hardly disaparaging.

    Reese is far from a has been – she is killing it with her production company, she has brought great stuff to the screen. She has a good eye. Writers who call artists has-beens don’t understand the ebb and flow of an artistic career. Also, they have nothing else to write about excepti to get a headline by putting someone down. Which is a reflection of their own sad career, not the person they are disparaging.
