LONDON—Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon said her new film “Wild” was the hardest role of her career at the biopic’s premiere at the London Film Festival on Monday.

Witherspoon plays the role of Cheryl Strayed, a woman who trekked across a wilderness in the United States for three months to recover from her mother’s death, a marriage breakup and heroin abuse.


“It was more challenging … physically, emotionally, mentally, but when I got through it, I was so happy,” she said. The film also depicts drug use and explicit sex scenes, which Witherspoon admittedly struggled with.

The actress, who also produced the film (along with the recent hit “Gone Girl”), was joined in the fest by the real-life Strayed, whose memoir was the basis for the film. AFP
