Reese Witherspoon - Witherspoon: 'No Superhero Movies For Me'

Actress REESE WITHERSPOON has ruled out ever starring in a superhero movie because futuristic films have no roles suitable for women of her age.
The Hollywood star admits the movie industry has changed drastically in the last few years and become more sci-fi orientated - but she has no intention of trying her hand at that genre.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, "The movies that are being made feel different. There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things - and there's not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.
"I've never done the superhero movie. That doesn't interest me too much."
Witherspoon admits the shift in popular genres has prompted her to be more selective of the projects she takes on, but she insists her children Ava and Deacon keep her more than busy when she's not working on a movie.
She adds, "I also have kids, so when I'm not working, it's not like I'm sitting around doing nothing. I'm taking care of two kids who are rapidly growing up in some bizarre time warp. I mean, somehow I now have an 11 year old!"
