If there's one piece of advice Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which give in the trailers for A Wrinkle in Time, it's to "be a warrior."

Reese Witherspoon, who plays Mrs. Whatsit in the upcoming Disney timespace adventure, was applauded for giving similar advice years ago at Glamour's Women of the Year awards: be "ambitious."

What made the celebrated movie star and producer realize she was a woman of ambition? Believe it or not, it was when she left an abusive relationship.

One of the grossest was a casting couch story in which Selma Blair says Toback convinced her to partially disrobe during an audition then held her head and forced her to watch as he humped her leg until he finished.

Ugh. We knew he threatened her, but on Monday's The Talk, she gives more details about just how scary that was, saying:

"I had literally been afraid for 17 years of James Toback who threatened to murder me and, you know, put cement shoes on and gouge my eyes out with a Bic pen if I ever told anybody."

Horrifying. See the entire interview (below):
