Hollywood performer Reese Witherspoon has told Amusement Week by week in a meeting that she turned down the part of a “girlfriend in a dumb comedy” four years prior, which in the long run was acknowledged by two Oscar-winning on-screen character.
Without uncovering the name of the performer or the film, she said, “Around four years back I got sent a horrendous, frightful script. They said, ‘Well this performing artist is pursuing it, that on-screen character is pursuing it: three Oscar victors and two gigantic film industry driving women’.
“Furthermore, I thought, ‘Goodness, that is the place we’re at? You’re battling to be the sweetheart in a stupid drama? For what?’ And incidentally, two Oscar-victors did it.”
