Thanks to the major success of her HBO mini-series Big Little Lies, Reese Witherspoon thinks people are finally ready to take her seriously as a producer!
“I finally had my three hits,” the 41-year-old actress, who also produced Wild and Gone Girl, expressed while speaking on stage at Vanity Fair’s Founders Fair held at the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge on Thursday (April 20) in Brooklyn City.

“Finally, I feel like the story had changed. I am a producer,” Reese continued (via Vanity Fair) “Women have to prove themselves twice as hard and it can take twice as long. A guy has one hit and they say he’s going to win an Oscar. A guy has one movie at Sundance and he gets Jurassic Park. A woman has a hit at Sundance and she has to make six more movies.”
“I know a movie’s a great idea or a company’s a great idea when I can’t stop thinking about it,” Reese added. “When I think, Oh my God, I can’t wait to tell that story, or, I can’t wait to sell that dress. I have a good gut.”
