Reese Witherspoon recalls the sex scene with Mark Wahlberg
Witherspoon was the cover star of the August 2023 US edition Harper’s Bazaar magazine. During the interview, she reflected on her infamous sex scene with actor Mark Wahlberg in the 1996 thriller “Fear.”
At the time, Witherspoon was 19 years old, and she recalled that the experience was not a big one for her. The actress explained that she had “no influence” on the explicit scene, which mostly involved her character having an orgasm while riding a roller coaster.
He said lawsuit Daily Mail, “I didn’t make it clear in the script that this was going to happen, so I think the director thought of it on his own, and then on set he asked me if I would do it, and I said no. It wasn’t a particularly great experience.”
The Oscar-winning actress also shared that she insisted on a stunt double for any scenes that featured below-the-waist nudity. “Fear” was directed by James Foley and primarily followed a 16-year-old girl (played by Witherspoon) who falls hopelessly in love with a 23-year-old sociopath.
It was a learning experience for him
During the interview, Witherspoon emphasized that it was not a traumatic experience, but it did teach her lessons about the film industry. He said, “It made me understand where I was in the pecking order of filmmaking.”
Witherspoon explained that her time on the film made her “want to be an agent of change.” It also inspired her to “become someone who might be in a better leadership position to tell stories from a woman’s point of view rather than a man’s.”
“Fear” was one of Witherspoon’s early projects, years before she started her own production studio, Hello Sunshine. At the time, the film was hailed as a “fatal attraction for teenagers” and was very successful. It grossed over $20 million at the US box office on a budget of $6.5 million.
The two stars were romantically linked at the time, though it was unclear if anything happened between them.

In her first Instagram post from the shoot, Witherspoon wore a black and white Chanel jacket and white knee high boots from the same brand. In an interview with the publication, the star of “Cruel Intentions” spoke about her work with the Hello Sunshine production company.
Witherspoon co-founded the company in 2016 and said it was “created around the idea that media is largely dominated by male voices and male perspectives.” She also said, “If you can create opportunities for women to tell their stories in their own words, it just gives you a better perspective on the human experience… It’s just a new time, a new era for women to succeed and excel. and I’m happy to be the rocket fuel they need.”

During the cover interview, Witherspoon also opened up about her recent split from CAA talent agent Jim Toth. The Walk The Line actress was married to Tóth from 2011 to March 2023. They announced their divorce just two days before their 12th wedding anniversary.
Witherspoon called the divorce a “vulnerable time for herself,” but shared her feelings when it was announced. He said: “I think about how many other people are going through this experience. I don’t feel isolated at all. I feel very connected (to my fans).
The actress’ marriage to Toth was her second, following her previous marriage to actor Ryan Philippe from 1997 to 2007. Witherspoon has three children, Ava, Deacon and Tennessee, from her marriages to both men.
