As a starlet, manufacturer, business owner and mommy, Reese Witherspoon might appear like she has all of it together. But even the 44-year-old Oscar winner confesses there was a time when she was still looking for her method.
Witherspoon spoke openly about this chapter throughout a current episode of The Drew Barrymore Show. The subject showed up after Drew Barrymore remembered seeing Witherspoon with her very first 2 kids Ava Phillippe, 21, and Deacon Phillippe, 16—who she shows ex Ryan Phillippe—years earlier throughout the early phases of the moviemakers’ professions. “How did you balance work and motherhood at that point?” the host asked. “Because I was just trying to balance work.”
Witherspoon acknowledged she was “terrified” at the time. “I got pregnant when I was 22 years old,” she stated. “And I didn’t know how to balance work and motherhood. You just do it, you know?”
The Big Little Lies star likewise kept in mind how she didn’t understand if she was going to have “steady work” at that time.
