Because it is all about love.
Last week Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon was honoured with a Golden Globe nomination for her acclaimed performance in the film Wild. But her career over the last several years has been, well, a bit all over the place.
And that’s her sentiment, not ours.
In an interview with the US version of 60 Minutes, the 38-year-old has reflected on how far she’s come and how her ‘personal life quickly unraveled’ after divorcing from her husband of eight years, Ryan Phillippe.
“Phew, that was a tough year that followed,” Reese said. “I got divorced the next year and I spent a few years just trying to feel better.”
“You know, you can’t really be very creative when you feel like your brain is scrambled eggs.”
According to Us Magazine the two actors, who share custody of daughter Ava and son Deacon, split amidst rumours that Ryan had cheated with Australian star Abbie Cornish.
"I was just kind of floundering career-wise cause I wasn't making things I was passionate about, I was just kinda working. It was really clear the audiences weren't responding to anything I was putting out there," she continued.
After her Oscar winning performance in Walk the Line as June Carter Cash, the actress went on to star in flops like How Do You Know and This Means War. These "floundering" career choices resulted in a 2012 New Yorker article naming her amongst actors who were no longer box office gold. Ouch.
