Reese Wither­spoon was ‘ter­ri­fied’ over be­ing preg­nant in the past

Daily Messenger - - Internatio­nal -

HOL­LY­WOOD: While Reese Wither­spoon feels ‘ev­ery bit of sac­ri­fice is worth it’ in re­gards to her early preg­nancy, the ac­tress also ad­mits to hav­ing felt ‘ter­ri­fied’ at the thought of bring­ing new life into the world, when she nei­ther had a ‘steady job’. At the time, the ac­tress felt she had not "es­tab­lished my­self as some­one who could de­mand" more from film ex­ec­u­tives.

While in­ter­view­ing on the Drew Bar­ry­more Show this Tues­day, the mother of three opened up about her first-ever preg­nancy with 21-yearold Ava and touched upon how ‘ter­ri­fy­ing’ the ex­pe­ri­ence was for her, be­ing so young her­self at the time.

The ac­tress was quoted say­ing, “To be com­pletely can­did, I was ter­ri­fied too. I got preg­nant when I was 22 years old, and I didn’t know how to bal­ance work and moth­er­hood, you just do it.”

“I didn’t know if I was go­ing to have steady work, too. I made movies but I hadn’t es­tab­lished my­self as some­one who could de­mand that it shoot close to my kids’ school.”

That was also the time when she “didn’t have any real power or lever­age within my in­dus­try.”

“I was just like ev­ery other mom and dad try­ing to fig­ure it out.” She said.

“There’s a lot of com­pro­mise.” The ac­tress went on to say. “Ev­ery bit of that sac­ri­fice is truly worth it.”

“You feel like that’s what makes me wake up on a Sun­day, it’s not movies or my job, it’s my kids.”
