Reese Witherspoon: I feel like I met you when I was 23 years old.— Variety (@Variety) June 23, 2020
Regina King: I know — we have grown children. We met each other on #LegallyBlonde. Remember when you got Sally Field to play that part? We were just fanning out https://t.co/JTfF8kCDNd
The Little Fires Everywhere star had a virtual Red, White & Blonde reunion with the Watchmen star.
Reese: That great experience of being able to look at a time that was actually 30 years ago and think: "I was a teenager then. What did my mom say about sexuality, race, class? What were the things that I was told that maybe were true or not true? How was I insensitive?" No one spoke to me about sexuality when I was a teenager. I didn't understand what homosexuality was. My grandparents didn't explain it. My parents didn't explain it. I had to learn from somebody I met on an audition in Los Angeles.
Regina: Oh wow.
Reese: We incorporated some of the conversation I had with my grandmother afterward. She said: "Homosexuality is very rare, Reese. That's not a thing that happens very often." And we put it in the script. Elena [her LFE character] says it because that's what was said to me in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1994.
ONTD, when and where did you first learn about heterosexuality?
