Reese Witherspoon, Oscar's Best Actress, wanted to walk off the set of Walk the Line almost daily, but she didn't thank goodness! Voice coach Roger Love worked with Joaquin and Reese on the film. Roger said Reese was a little unsure at first.
"Literally, she wanted to walk off this film every single day," Love said. "I think she just sets the bar very, very high. And unless she personally was satisfied, it didn't matter." From TMZ.com:
But the trouble wasn't just making her sound good; she also had to sound like the real-life legend she was portraying. And June wasn't even considered a great singer. Love reveals, "To be true to the actual characters, Reese wasn't supposed to get up and sound like the most incredible country singer in history."
And true to June Carter, Reese indeed was. She became a first time Academy Award winner for her efforts, beating out tough competition from Felicity Huffman and others.
"People used to ask June how she was doing, and she would say I'm just trying to matter. I know what she means," the actress said in her acceptance speech.
