Reese Witherspoon got candid about being taught about homosexuality after she had an audition in Los Angeles early in her career.

“That great experience of being able to look at a time that was actually 30 years ago and think: ‘I was a teenager then. What did my mom say about sexuality, race, class? What were the things that I was told that maybe were true or not true? How was I insensitive?’” the actress reflected in a conversation with Regina King for Variety.

She continued: “No one spoke to me about sexuality when I was a teenager. I didn’t understand what homosexuality was. My grandparents didn’t explain it; my parents didn’t explain it.”
