Actress Reese Witherspoon, who signed up to play Cheryl Strayed in upcoming film ‘Wild’, said she wanted to be as real and truthful as possible.
Witherspoon, 38, agreed to film some naked scenes for the big-screen adaptation, reported E!Online.
“I had to make a choice when I decided to do the film on how much I wanted to bear. I have a real story to tell here because Cheryl was completely honest when she wrote her book.
“It (naked scene) was scary and challenging. It’s not just a movie about somebody walking. It’s really about someone who feels profoundly hurt and lost,” she said.
Witherspoon played a former heroin addict who decided to tackle a 1,100-mile hike after experiencing several tragic events, mainly a devastating divorce caused by drug use and infidelity. The mother-of-three is getting all kinds of Oscar buzz for her role.
