Reese Witherspoon Is Passionate About Successful Women

Reese Witherspoon has discussed her passion for successful women who earn their own money, and hopes to help empower others to achieve their goals.

The 42-year-old actress owns a production company, 'Hello Sunshine', which aims to create parts for strong female leads, and is keen about making sure woman aren't afraid of being successful.

Speaking to Vogue magazine, she said: "I think there's a time and a place and there will be a moment when I can speak about it. But there's a reason I'm very passionate about women having their own money. I have a lot of friends and I have a lot of personal experiences with women feeling afraid and making life choices because they felt completely paralysed or in a stasis because they didn't know what to do financially. And you can't have liberation if you don't have that."

The star hopes that her production company will have an impact in putting women at the centre of the industry.

"I was sick of making movies where I was the only female lead on the set. I was sick of seeing scripts where there was only one female role, badly written, and yet every actress in town wanted the part because there was nothing else."

Reese' confidence isn't something she has always had, and she admits that she used to be scared to display her achievements, and would hide the Oscar she won in 2006 for playing June Carter in 'Walk the Line'.

Speaking to Vogue magazine, she said: "I used to hide my Oscar but then I was like, 'Why shouldn't I put it out here in the living room?'"
