Reese Witherspoon Not Ashamed for Going to Counseling
Reese Witherspoon has credited her therapist with helping her through the tough times, insisting there isn't "anything shameful" about counseling. The Hollywood actress endured a painful split from husband Ryan Phillippe in 2006, subsequently calling the divorce "very humiliating and isolating."
And the Oscar-winner, who is recently rumored to have ended her two-year relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, admits she often talks through her problems with a professional. She says, "I've had help. Through difficult times I have always found counseling helpful and I don't think there is anything shameful in that."
Witherspoon also credits her female friends with helping her pull through when life gets hard. She adds, "It's tough being a woman. You are supposed to be self-sufficient, but we all need our sisters. I have three women friends who will drop anything to help me and I will do the same for them. I believe in those female bonds, because a lot of stuff happens with men and marriage and divorce, but family and friends are paramount."
