Witherspoon, 32, was so nervous about singing professionally for the first time, in Walk the Line, that she had second thoughts about starring as June Carter Cash and almost didn’t accept the role. But six months with a singing coach helped cure her jitters. In interviews to promote the movie, she told reporters that singing was the most challenging part of the gig.
