London: Reese Witherspoon was scared of travelling because she had to leave her two small children.
The 35-year-old, who is married to actor Ryan Phillippe, has children, Ava, 12 and Deacon, 7.
"I used to not ever travel. I`ve gotten over so many phobias. Five years ago, I was terrified to travel. I was scared to leave my kids. It`s still not the best feeling," contactmusic.com quoted Witherspoon as saying.
