Reese Witherspoon: Divorce Trauma Caused Career Missteps

Reese Witherspoon Out Shopping In Brentwood

Reese Witherspoon has had, on the whole, an amazing career.

That being said, there have been some slumps for the Mud star. In a new interview with Charlie Rose, Witherspoon reflected on how far she’s come, looking back on her Academy Award win for 2005’s Walk the Line and how in the subsequent months, everything seem to come undone (the most notable thing being her split from husband of eight years, Ryan Phillippe)Us Weekly reports:

“Phew, that was a tough year that followed,” she told Rose. “I got divorced the next year and I spent a few years just trying to feel better.” The two actors — who share daughter Ava, now 15, and son Deacon, now 11 — split amidst rumors that Phillippe cheated with Australian star Abbie Cornish.

“You know, you can’t really be very creative when you feel like your brain is scrambled eggs,” continued Witherspoon, whose divorce from Phillippe was finalized in October 2007. “I was just kind of floundering career-wise cause I wasn’t making things I was passionate about, I was just kinda working. It was really clear the audiences weren’t responding to anything I was putting out there.”

After her incredible performance in Walk the Line opposite Joaquin Phoenix, Witherspoon went on to headline some TERRIBLE romantic comedies including How Do You Know and This Means War. Her “wake up call” was a 2012 New Yorker piece that named her amongst actors who were no longer box office gold. OUCH.

“I thought I was reading a profile on another actor, and somewhere at the end it said, you know, the people who are washed up, and at the end it included me, Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson,” she explained to Rose. “It really hurt my feelings, really hurt my feelings.”

It would hurt ANYONE’S feelings, girl.  The fact is, Reese Witherspoon is back with Wild, and the film is getting rave reviews. What do you think of Reese’s trajectory? Will you see Wild?

With regard to her children, she said, “I don’t think there’s been an hour of my life since Ava was born that I don’t think of my kids. I call it my CNN ticker tape: Is Ava ok? Yes, Is Deacon ok? Yes. Is Tennessee ok? Yes. Back to Ava.”

When speaking of her husband Jim Toth, she said, “Well, I have to say a very healing part of my life is my wonderful husband, Jim. It’s really wonderful being with somebody who supports me, who loves me, who is my number one fan. That is such an incredible experience. You have to be ready for those things. I had to be in a place where I felt all those things about myself.”

Reese Witherspoon and Family Visit the Farmer’s Market

Reese Witherspoon & Family Visit The Farmer's Market

Super excited to see Wild, but in the meantime, let’s catch Reese Witherspoon and family in their natural habitat, shall we?

The actress enjoyed a trip to the farmers market with husband Jim and her children Ava Phillipe & Tennessee Toth yesterday. Reese’s daughter Ava showed off her pink locks and age (dang, she’s FIFTEEN! I feel old).  I think she looks like a perfect amalgamation of  dad Ryan Phillipe and mom, don’t you think?

The family shopped for veggies, walked around, petted llamas and generally were adorable.  Check out some PICS!

Reese Witherspoon Talks About Her Disorderly Conduct Arrest

Reese Witherspoon Talks About Her Disorderly Conduct Arrest

Reese Witherspoon got arrested last year for disorderly conduct when she learned that her husband Jim Toth was being arrested. Like a lot of us, Reese couldn’t keep quiet and had to pipe up. It landed her in jail, but she learned a lesson about pulling the celebrity card out of her pocket. Now, she is opening up again about the kerfuffle:

“I think it was a moment where people realized that I wasn’t exactly what they thought I was,” she told reporters. “I guess maybe we all like to define people by the way the media presents them, and I think that I showed I have a complexity that people didn’t know about. It’s part of human nature. I made a mistake. We all make mistakes. The best you can do is say sorry and learn from it and move on.”

She has previously talked about the incident on “Good Morning America”. She said, “I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things. I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant! I said crazy things. You only hear me laughing because I had no idea what I was talking about and I am so sorry. I was so disrespectful to him. I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better.”

And there you have it!
