Reese Witherspoon on Portraying Hillary Clinton, Finding Great Roles for Women

Reese Witherspoon offered plenty of encouragement to fellow producers on Saturday morning by stressing the need to focus on the female audience — as demonstrated by her recent producing efforts, “Wild,” “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit.”

“Women make up 50 percent of the population,” she said. “We should make up 50% of the movies we see.”

Speaking at the Producers Guild of America’s 7th annual “Produced By” conference on the Paramount lot, Witherspoon said the success of her Pacific Standard company stems partly from Hollywood knowing what to expect from the shingle. Witherspoon noted that she and partner Bruna Papandrea created the banner out of frustration with a lack of interesting roles for actresses.

“It is great to have specificity because people know what to send you,” Witherspoon noted. “We are looking for great female parts.”

But Witherspoon also noted that Pacific Standard wants to succeed on the basis on story. “The films we make are not chick flicks,” she insisted. “‘Wild’ is just about a human being.”

Speaking to a capacity crowd of more than 500 at the Paramount Theater, Witherspoon also addressed the question of whether she’d ever portray Hillary Clinton. She responded by saying that she’s been asked to do so several times and wryly pointed out that she portrayed a young version of Clinton as Tracy Flick in 1998’s “Election.”

“When I did meet Hillary Clinton she said, ‘Everybody talks to me about Tracy Flick in ‘Election,’” Witherspoon added.

Asked by moderator Will Packer if they believed they had made any mistakes with “Wild,” Witherspoon responded: “Shooting 55 locations in 30 days was probably not the best way to start, but we were determined.”

Both producers noted that they were also pregnant at the time. Papandrea said being a mother is not a disadvantage.

“I make better decisions because when I’m leaving my children, I want to do something I love,” she said.

Reese Witherspoon Talks ‘Wild’ New Role

Fans get to see another side of Reese Witherspoon in her new film Wild, and she opened up about the role with ET.

Reese plays the real-life Cheryl Strayed, whose bestselling memoir of the same name details the brutal solo hike Cheryl took at the age of 26 along the Pacific Crest Trail. In the movie, the character goes nude and does heroin. Reese told us what she hopes her 15-year-old daughter Ava and 11-year-old son Deacon take away from the movie.



“If they can see this film and feel, both my daughter and my son, that they don’t need to be embarrassed or ashamed of themselves and that they’re going to be great, no matter what on their life, I think that’s a great thing to see in a film,” said Reese.

In fact, it was Cheryl’s candid approach to telling her story left an impression on Reese and drew her to playing a part so different from anything she’s ever done before.

“Part of the book that really struck me as an important part of the story was how Cheryl addressed her own sexuality,” said Reese. “She not only described these experiences but she also said, I’m not going to feel bad about them.”

The Oscar winner was fiercely committed to the role. Cheryl was even on the set to help Reese with authenticity.

“The director [Dallas Buyers Club helmer Jean-Marc Vallee] would often times say cut, and he’d look at me and say, ‘What do you think?’, and I said, ‘I think Reese is not wearing a heavy pack,'” Cheryl said with a laugh.

Wild is out now in limited release.

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
