Reese Witherspoon launching her own production company

Actress Reese Witherspoon is launching a new production company in a bid to give other female stars a voice.

The recently married Oscar winner and mom of two has been acting for over two decades but Witherspoon confesses she's now eager to step behind the camera.

The blonde beauty is teaming up with gal pal and Milk producer Bruna Papandrea to create a new firm, which will empower women and ensure they have an opportunity to pursue their dreams.

The Walk the Line star tells Reuters, "We will be producing some films with a very clear female voice.

"I’ve been acting since I was 14, and I know every aspect of filmmaking at this point. I think it’s important for women who have attained a certain amount of success in this business to give back to other female writers and filmmakers and try and help facilitate their dreams."

Witherspoon launched her first production company, Type A Films, in 2000.
