Oprah Winfrey was recently interviewed by People’s Jess Cagle, and she mentioned Reese.
When speaking about her new movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Oprah said: “I’d never played a role like that and nor have I done it enough to feel really solidly comfortable in the space. I have a lot of actor friends … like I was on set the other day with ‘Wrinkle in Time’ and I said to Reese [Witherspoon], ‘So Reese, how many movies have you done?’ and she said, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know … hundreds, I don’t know.’ So I was like ‘Oh God, please don’t ask me how many movies I’ve done.’ I think I’ve done five. It’s rare that I feel intimated, but I felt intimidated.”
