Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she took a break from acting for close to two years because she was unsatisfied with her career path.
Speaking to EW, Witherspoon insisted that for a time she was disinterested in the projects that she was being offered.
“I just didn’t read anything I liked,” she said.
The BAFTA winner also explained that there are now fewer quality roles offered to women of her age.
She noted: “There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things – and there’s not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.”
Witherspoon returns to the big screen with How Do You Know, which is released on December 17 in US cinemas and January 28 in the UK.
