Witherspoon, who launched her own production company in 2012, has become one of the most influential female figures in Hollywood. But, she says her main goal, is to help her kids find their true passions.
"You know, I think the most important thing is that you figure out what your kids are passionate about, and what they're good at," she expressed. "And don't expect them to be like you, you just sort of encourage them to be the best versions of themselves. So that's your job as a parent to figure out who they are."
"I think the older you get, you realize you don't know anything about anything, you know?" she continued, adding that her mother is a driving force behind her success.
"My mom keeps me really grounded she just keeps reminding me what’s important," she said. "Yeah, it's a kind of crazy world right now. I think its important people are reminding you to be kind and stick to your values and treat people how you want to be treated."
