The One WILD Thing Reese Won’t Do –it will surprise you!

Oscar buzz surrounds Reese Witherspoon’s performance in WILD, an inspiring story about Cheryl Stayed who suffered from years of reckless behavior, drug addiction, a divorce, and the death of her mother from cancer.

She decides to hike more than 1,000 miles on the Pacific Trail on her own…with absolutely no experience! Reese didn’t have major qualms about de-glamming herself, playing a drug addict, or acting reckless on screen. But she did draw the line on one thing.

“She’s much more of a Southern lady than I ever was,” says Cheryl Strayed, who wrote the non-fiction book upon which the film is based. “Right before we began production, Reese asked me if I shaved on my hike. Of course, I did not.

She said to me, ‘Will you just do me a favor and tell (director Jean-Marc Vallée) that you shaved? I’m from the South, I shave. I draw the line there.’”

Reese Witherspoon is a 2015 Golden Globe® nominee for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for WILD in theaters now.
