Reese Witherspoon Says She Feels Fear in Her Life 'All the Time'

  Reese Witherspoon Says She Feels Fear in Her Life 'All the Time' Even Reese Witherspoon has moments of fear and doubt, but the actress says she’s come up with a way to combat those bad feelings when they bubble up. “I see [fear] as this little creature that lives in my life all the time, and I can either pay it attention and not get anything done or I can march ahead and ignore it,” the A Wrinkle in Time star told Marie Clairefor its March 2018 issue. “Sometimes I just have to jump two feet into a cold pool and go, ‘OK, I believe in myself enough, I know I work hard. I know I can always bet on myself,'” she added. Witherspoon, who recently revealed in an emotional speech that she was sexually assaulted by a director at 16, also spoke about the women’s movement currently sweeping Hollywood and beyond. “It shouldn’t just be about financial success,” she said. “We should have as many opportunities to fail as we do succeed. Because artistry is not about succeeding always. It’s about having the courage to try and put out into the world new ideas.” Including her highly anticipated role in A Wrinkle in Time, Witherspoon has 23 projects in the works in 2018. “I’m excited about the project with Jen Aniston,” she said. The series will be one of the first shows produced by Apple, and both actresses are also serving as producers. “It’s a show about women in media – the morning news in particular,” she added.
