While laying down on her couch one day, Witherspoon posted words of wisdom on Tiktok that have taken the world by storm. Looking comfortable yet always chic, America’s former sweetheart opened up about advice that had been passed down to her that she thought was worth sharing. 

“Someone just asked me the best piece of advice for young people or for anybody, honestly,” she said. 

“It’s really surprising how hard it is,” she added, “but the sooner you figure out that other people’s opinions of you are never your business, and it literally doesn’t matter what they think of you, you become free. Totally free.” Her inspiring words grabbed the attention of other high-profile names in the entertainment industry. Actress Selma Blair commented “So true. So true,” on the post that had over 200,000 likes on Tiktok

The actress has shared what it is like being so famous and interacting with fans both in person and on social media. Witherspoon said:

“So many people don’t get to see the fullness of who they are mirrored back to them, to hear how important they are to someone or how they’ve touched another person or changed something for them. That’s been my experience with social media, but it’s one of the things about this particular career that we have, that you do get to feel that. You walk through an airport and someone tells you they loved what you did. They’re like, ‘Is it okay that I’m bothering you?’ Sometimes you want your privacy, but there’s a beauty in it.”

Witherspoon has had many moments of sharing what life lessons she has found helpful. Back in 2019, she opened up about another hardship she faced. She told “The Today Show, “When I first started as an actor, I went on an audition for a part that I wanted more than anything,” she wrote. “This was an incredible movie with a huge male movie star as the lead. I had three callbacks., then a screen test and one day my agent called and said, ‘You didn’t get the part, the lead actor liked working with the other actress more.’”

She said she was beside herself, but then she said, “What I didn’t know then was: rejection teaches you perseverance and how to get tough. And you also learn… not every path is right for you,” she explained. “So remember next time you fail at something or someone leaves you heartbroken… let yourself be sad, grieve what didn’t happen for a minute but move ON.”

Her impactful words have been heard all over the world via the world wide web is at the disposal of your fingertips. Her inspirational posts such as the one with her advice have received a lot of positive feedback.

“I choose happiness too. Love this!,” one user said. 

Another commented on her Tiktok saying, “Life is always better we we self-start our happiness. I like how all of your videos are good vibes.”

Even after being famous for so long, the A-list celebrity has found a way to continue to impact people of all ages through her work.
