“We’re similar in that we both have small children and we both have older parents, so we have similar concerns about safety, so we’re trying to get informed,” Witherspoon said. 

Co-star Washington said it is imperative for her to find balance amid the COVID-19 crisis. 

“I think we have also talked about trying to strike that balance of getting as much information, factual information, to take care of yourself and loved ones. But also, realizing your stress level impacts your immunity as well. So, how can you cultivate some calm and really try to decompress and hang out with loved ones?” Washington said.
