Reese Witherspoon felt like a ‘robot’ that ‘broke’ after difficult year with divorce

As a widely successful actress and producer, Reese Witherspoon consistently presents herself as a formidable force in Hollywood. Now, “The Morning Show” star is revealing she recently reached her breaking point, admitting she “cried and cried.”

“I’ve been trying really hard to find balance outside of work,” Witherspoon told attendees of her Hello Sunshine’s Shine Away event, per E! Online. “I’m a person who fills my schedule with busyness, so that I feel less alone or less nervous or less unsettled.”

She continued, “I started to realize that isn’t going to work for me. About a year ago, I was like, ‘I was a robot and the robot broke.’ I cried and cried.”

Witherspoon has had an eventful year, having announced in March that she and husband Jim Toth were divorcing after nearly 12 years of marriage. They share one son, Tennessee, together. Witherspoon has two other children from her first marriage to Ryan Phillippe.
