Reese Witherspoon Opens Up About Handling Rejections and Judgments
Speaking at the INBOUND 2023 conference, the 47-year-old Reese remarked, “I began my career at such a young age, and rejection was a prominent part of my early experiences. I learned long ago that I have no control over other people’s opinions of me.”
Reese Witherspoon emphasized, “She really doesn’t care about anyone’s opinion. She’s determined to pursue her work, date whomever she chooses, and spend time with friends, even if others disapprove. She believes that when one lets go of the weight of others’ judgments, they achieve true freedom—complete liberation.”
Reese has also learned to surround herself with strong, supportive individuals. She expressed, “Everybody out there over 40 knows. If they aren’t adding to my life, they should exit.”
In a previous admission, she voiced her frustration with Hollywood studios before her role in ‘Big Little Lies,’ the successful HBO series. The acclaimed actress, who shared the screen with talents like Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, and Zoe Kravitz, played a pivotal role in bringing the project to fruition, and she acknowledged its transformative impact on her career.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Reese Witherspoon explained, “I found myself in a situation where I had been generating significant profits for studios for many years, but they didn’t take me seriously as a filmmaker. Somehow, they failed to recognize that 25 years of experience equated to a deep understanding of what makes movies successful and how to manage them within budget constraints.”
She further noted, “You think about the kind of men who emerge from Sundance and land major roles with just one film, and they’re seen as having great potential.”
She has always been a wonderful mother, and her most recent love message confirms it.
