Most people have that one “ride-or-die” friend they can count on no matter what. That friend who has seen it all—the good, the bad, and the ugly—yet they’re still by your side. And that friend for Jennifer Garner is Reese Witherspoon.
During a panel discussion at Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine’s Inaugural Shine Away Event in Los Angeles, Garner said that Reese Witherspoon was there during a “very public and very hard moment” in her life, reports People.
While she didn’t disclose what that moment was, she did say that Reese was there for her in the form of dance cardio. “And I danced cardio-d so hard, we broke her foot, but she kept going!” Garner said during the panel according to the publication.
“It was like, okay, we worked out at seven on vacation, we’re going to work out again at two. She was like, ‘I’m going to be there. I’m going to be there.'”
Not only is Witherspoon a great gal pal to have by your side, but she’s the best kind of mom friend, too. Witherspoon is a mother of three after all.
Garner said, “She’ll also look at you and say, ‘OK, you need to be finding a preschool. This kid is two and a half and they need to start next month. You actually have to get on this,’” according to ET.
Hello Sunshine is a media company founded by Witherspoon in 2016. This company and Witherspoon herself seemed to be a space for Garner and other actresses to be able to speak freely about their industry without being silenced or supervised, according to Garner.
In true best girlfriend fashion, these meetings of the actresses happened at Witherspoon’s house, Garner said during the panel. And it was the first time I’d ever sat down with that many actresses in the same room where we weren’t passing each other in an award show in big dresses, where we just sat,” she said.
We could all use a friend like Witherspoon.
