The actress grew up in Tennessee, in a family with very conservative ideas, something that she always challenged.

Actress Reese Witherspoon says she moved to Los Angeles to escape the “very conservative” society in which she grew up.

The actress was raised in Tennessee. In an interview with OK! Magazine, she revealed that she has always “challenged” the belief systems around her, reports

“When I came home I was always the person who comes from Los Angeles with all the crazy ideas. I grew up in a very conservative family and a very conservative society, so I have always challenged the ideas and belief systems that I grew up with. That is probably the reason why I moved so far, to meet people who have ideas similar to mine, ”he said.

She is the mother of Ava, 20, and Deacon, 16, from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe and Tennessee, seven, with her current husband Jim Toth.

The actress said she felt she could do anything after becoming a mother.

“After having a child, you have the incredible feeling that you can achieve anything because it is very challenging for your body and your mind. Change your whole life. I feel like you can adapt to that and do the best of your ability, it’s a great achievement in life, ”he said.

The 44-year-old star also admitted that she became more “vulnerable” after embracing motherhood.

“It makes you incredibly vulnerable. It feels like you are walking with your heart out of your body. If something happens to my children, it destroys me. If they suffer or feel sad, it really makes me feel bad. As a mother, I feel that the most important thing you should do is be there, be consistent and be part of their lives, “she said.
