Now a busy producer and lifestyle guru, the Walk The Line star admits the role she was offered made her realise acting wasn't enough for her anymore.

Recalling the "awful, terrible script" she mulled over, Reese tells Entertainment Weekly, "This male star was starring in it (film), and there was a girlfriend part. And I thought, 'You've got to be kidding me. No, I'm not interested'.

"They said, 'Well, this actress is chasing it, that actress is chasing it'. (They were) three Oscar winners and two huge box office leading ladies, and I thought, 'Oh, that's where we're at? You're fighting to be the girlfriend in a dumb comedy? For what?'"

Reese isn't naming names - or the film she turned down - but adds, "By the way, two Oscar winners did it."
