And the Draper James designer said she would do anything to make her kids laugh.

‘Dancing around my kitchen this morning to different Top 40 songs,’ she said was one of her tricks.

She dished: ‘I’ll do anything to make people laugh, it’s sad. I’m sure my children find it horrifying, but my mother used to do the same thing.’

Tracee replied; ‘They’ll look back on it fondly and it will probably promote you having a long, fruitful, delicious relationship with your kids the way you do with your mom, because I know how much you love your mom.’

Witherspoon also noted how she is grateful for those she has been close during the pandemic.

‘As we emerge from this time of hibernation, or whatever it was for people, it really was a time to take stock of who mattered, and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for how many wonderful people I have in my life,’ said the star.      

 Reese also revealed which role was the most transformative in her life.

The part in question was her Oscar-nominated turn in the 2014 film Wild which was based on a memoir of the same name by Cheryl Strayed.

Reese played Cheryl who in the aftermath of her divorce decides to embark on a grueling trek through the more than 2,000-mile Pacific Crest Trail.

Wild saw Reese work with Laura Dern and director Jean Marc Vallee both of whom she reunited with for her acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies.  

‘I was so scared to do that, Tracee. I had hypnosis, I was so scared. I was having panic attacks for three weeks before I started,’ Reese said of the movie.

‘There was the nudity, sexuality, and drug-use aspect, but also being alone on camera with no other actors. I hadn’t ever been alone in scenes for days and days. There were probably 25 days of the shoot where I had no other actor opposite me. It was just me and a camera and a backpack. I was like: “Is this going to be so boring?”‘

Reese also held court about her experiences in show business, revealing that before she began her production company ‘I had a studio head say to me: “Reese, we already have a movie with a woman this year. We can’t make another one.”‘

The Wild star added: ‘The other thing that really drives me nuts is that women aren’t encouraged to have conversations about financial literacy.’

She noted, ‘I’ll bring it up to literally everybody who crosses my path. You know me as the: “How will this make money?” and: “Where is the revenue stream?” girl.’

Reese stated: ‘The big piece is, how does the artist receive money? We’re in a really unique time where streaming has emerged and social media has become such an important tool for marketing and connecting to audiences. There are so many ways for artists to monetize. But it’s a maze to navigate.’

The New Orleans-born movie star said: ‘Even if we’re making more money, are we getting educated about how to invest?’

She recalled: ‘When I first started making money, no one would bring me business opportunities. I was watching my peers, who were men, constantly investing in things like Uber and Google because they hung out with the founders.’

As a result Reese went around and ‘asked other high-profile women: “Were you offered this opportunity?” The answer across the board was no. How you use the money that you get is just as important.’
