So, you know a few years ago when Reese Witherspoon was invited to the Oscars and she was awarded the prize for Best Actress for her role as June Carter in Walk The Line?

Well, that almost didn't happen.

In a new interview, Reese revealed that she was once advised by a "professional" never to sing on film. According to this person who was obviously tone deaf, she just wasn't good enough to pull off a musical role. Reese explained:

"I went to all these camps in the Catskills and I had to sing and dance and act and I remember getting through to the singing coaching session at the end and I had my evaluation and they said, 'Whatever you do, don't sing'…Thank God I didn't listen, but it was hard to get over that mental block. You have to be careful what you say to people."

Uh, yeah! For real! Just imagine how different her career would have been had she listened to whoever this person was?!

We're very glad you listened to your instincts, BB, instead of the negativity! Worked out well for everyone, we think!

    See Perez, THESE are the types of stories you need to be doing more of to not be called a bully. We want to hear more about the overcoming of adversity by admirable people. Thats something we can relate to. Oh and are you going to put up the YouTube video of EA Games employees contributing to the "It Gets Better Project"?

    Actually Perez, I think your stories now read like they were written by a grandmother ODing on Prozac. I get your need to be nice and less of a prick. But you're going way overboard to the point where you sound ridiculous.

    Good for her. Advice from someone who might only fancy themselves a vocal expert, but isn't can probably be a red flag. He/she obviously knew squat. ; ]

    She was incredible in Walk the Line one of the best movies ever! Definately deserved the Oscar.
