London: Actress Reese Witherspoon admits she doesn`t have too many friends and will rather prefer to have a small group of close friends who can rely on her.

"I don`t have a lot of friends. Friendships are work. You can only have a friend if you are a friend. You`ve got to be there," contactmusic.com quoted Witherspoon as saying.

"I really want to be the person who shows up for people when they need me. The friends I do have are very important to me. We tell each other everything. Stuff is hard to deal with, and we`ve gone through a lot together. Have an incredible support system. We`re lucky."
