Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon’s Dance-Fueled Friendship Blossoms at Hello Sunshine’s Event
Los Angeles, CA – During Hello Sunshine’s Shine Away Event in Los Angeles, Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner opened up about the incredible bond she shares with her dear friend Reese Witherspoon. The event also featured renowned actress and writer Mindy Kaling, making it a memorable gathering of female talent in the entertainment industry.
Garner, who starred in the AppleTV+ miniseries “The Last Thing He Told Me,” co-produced by Witherspoon’s media company, Hello Sunshine, expressed her gratitude for Reese’s unwavering support during challenging moments in her life. While the specifics of the difficult period weren’t disclosed, Garner highlighted the pivotal role dance cardio played in helping her cope and bond with Witherspoon.
“I think back to being pregnant,” Garner reminisced. “This one [Witherspoon] was sitting next to me. I think back to going through a very public, very hard moment in my life. She was right there, and the way I needed to get through it was dance cardio.”
Their shared love for dance cardio, however, led to an unexpected twist. “I danced cardio-d so hard, we broke her foot,” Garner revealed with a smile. “But she kept going! It was like, okay, we worked out at seven on vacation, we’re going to work out again at two. She was like, ‘I’m going to be there. I’m going to be there.'”
The Shine Away Event, hosted by Hello Sunshine, provided a platform for the actresses to discuss industry-related issues in a comfortable and supportive environment. Garner commended Witherspoon for fostering an atmosphere where actresses can freely express their thoughts without fear of suppression.
