Reese Witherspoon has revealed that her parents had slapped a ban on her from moving to Hollywood because they believed that it is "where crazy people live".
The 37-year-old Oscar-winning actress said that she started doing commercials when she was just 12 and when one day she read an advert for a movie audition, she decided she wanted to be in movies, Contactmusic reported.
The Walk the Line star said that her dad's a doctor and her mom is a professor of pediatric nursing, so she was sure she was going to be a doctor.
The blonde beauty said that her parents had told her she had to stay in school and even though she was allowed to work in the summers, she couldn't work in the school year.
